Do I want to move to this particular complex?
I haven't seen anything I've liked better which is in my price range.
It's going to seem smaller, if not really smaller.
Interested in looking? Two bedroom floor plan is here.


Can't I just crawl under the covers? I need to give the guy a decision on this place by tomorrow.

The pool looks awesome.

How much square footage are you losing, if any? I hate to fall in line with their advertising, but the mirrored doors probably WILL help a lot with light and making it seem bigger.

It looks like a decent setup, but I don't know what you're coming from, either.

At the very worst, you can always move again in a year or so if you hate it.

If you're not finding anything you like better, I would just go with this since you know you can get it. It would be one less thing to worry about. Like Reesa said, you can always use the next year to find a place you LOVE. If you think you would do that, then I would recommend moving stuff you don't need day-to-day, to storage (if it's economical). That way you have more space in the apt. and you can move it into wherever you end up at your leisure.

The photos look nice! Would be great living by the beach and having a pool.

I am such a worrier, and I NEED to have things nailed down, that with a thirty day notice, I would be grabbing this. Everything is NEW, and it looks/sounds very do-able. I do understand the hesitation to being in a complex. My sister/bro-in-law were in a complex, and I watched the boys every week for over a year overnight, and so got a lot of experience with it, and I know it can be a hassle at times. But it was okay. This looks like a very nice place, and if you've visited and it lives up to the pics, that's cool.

How long of a commitment are they asking? Is it a year lease thing-y? Because maybe you could commit to this for the shortest term possible, and use the time to look for a larger place, leaving some of your stuff in storage for the interim? This is clean, light, and NICE, and looks safe and welcoming.

Is there a washer/dryer facility on-site? If so, I think I might go for it. That doesn't mean it's definitely for you, but in your place, me being the stress monkey that I am, I probably would. :-/

whoops... gotta start reading other people's entries first! Could've just posted "what they said"!

How big is your current place? Because the two bedrooms makes this place at least seem larger. But what do I know?

I tend to like to check out all my options before making a decision, which means sometimes I lose out on what I saw to start with. OTOH, as everyone else said, the clock is ticking and it sure would be nice to have it nailed down. Are there many more places in your price range to look at? If not, I think I'd take it, too. Oh, and if you have a choice, I'd take an upstairs apt, so no-one is over your head. Safer, too, or I like to think so, anyway.

Do it. Unless you REALLY liked something else you saw, this will serve very nicely for a year or two. But I would spend the year trying to save up a down for a house - apartment dwelling is thrown away money, imho. If I didn't have the equity in my condo right now to pull on, we wouldn't be surviving, and my mortgage is STILL lower than local rents, even after a refi.
Do it. Sarge says so. And you may blame me for it later if it helps.

Deb, the floorplan is decent... and it certainly looks well-tended. Trader Joe's up the street is good -- if we could find a spot like this in Portland (Maine) we'd be really tempted....

Are there apartment complex rules about what can go in the patio? Looks like a potential bedroom! Or storage area.
Jul. 12th, 2006 08:10 pm (UTC)
I'm opting for a second floor apt - no patio. Small balcony though =)
Jul. 12th, 2006 11:10 pm (UTC)
Small balcony can still work as bedroom or storage. :)

Is there an elevator in addition to the stairs?

Btw, yes on the NordicTrack, but I won't be able to pick it up any earlier than 7/23.

Nordic track is all yours (aka The All American)
