Enjoying Our Tropically Landscaped Apartment Living in Jacksonville

My wife and I wanted a clean place to live in Florida. We wanted an apartment with a pool. A nice one too. Not one of those tiny little ones they put in just to say they have a pool at an apartment complex. When we were looking for apartments in Jacksonville Florida, we found Sundance Pointe Apartments. We went and checked them out on a recent trip down to Florida. We have relatives about an hour away in Gainesville. We wanted to be in Jacksonville closer to the airport. We are keeping our home up north, and we are going to rent an apartment year round in Florida. It is the only way we can afford to have a winter home.

I am ready to move permanently to Florida. My wife wants to stay close to other family up north. I can understand that. All of my relatives are gone or living far away. I will move anywhere my wife desires to live. Of course, I might not be too keen on moving somewhere that has even colder winters. However, we are both on the same page with that anyway. Neither of us enjoy the cold anymore, and snow and ice on the roads is another issue.

We Just Up and Moved to Daytona Beach Florida

We decided to sell everything and move. We only kept our clothes, electronics, basic household items, pictures and family keepsakes. Then we searched online for Craigslist Daytona Beach apartments. We found a nice place at Countryside Apartments, and we leased a place before even arriving in our SUV and rented trailer for our stuff. Our lease was up where we lived most of our adult lives, and my wife and I wanted a big change. We knew that sometimes you just need to up and do things to get what you want. Sometimes you do need to burn a bridge or two to not look back. Not renewing our lease up north forced us to find a new place, and we finally were getting a place in Florida.

We have wanted to move to Florida for 10 years. We just always gave ourselves excuse after excuse. When we found a two-bedroom single-story apartment home in Florida that had rent that was lower than what we were already paying, we jumped at the chance. We wanted a nice little place that was cozy.

I Had Some Help Finding a Perfect Residence

As soon as I graduated from high school and turned 18 years old, I was ready to get my very own place. I had been in foster care for most of my life, which means that I had been shuttled around between many different homes for far too long. I used an apartment finder for Jacksonville FL residents to get my first place. My foster mom helped me to do it, and she went along with us to look at a variety of different places to make it easier on me to find something, too. It really made me feel good that she did that.

My birth mom gave me up when I was just a baby. That’s how I landed in the foster system.

Removing a Tree Before I Sell My Home

I’m preparing to sell my home, and my realtor provided me with a few suggestions that may help me sell my home faster. A lot of them are related to gardening and the general appearance of my front yard. This is really important, because the landscaping is one of the first things that potential homebuyers will focus on when they first walk onto your property. As part of this landscaping improvement project, I need schedule tree removal in Long Island. There’s a rather large tree that is overwhelming the front of my home, and making it difficult for homebuyers to appreciate everything else my home has to offer.

When Your AC Units Are Bigger Than a Motorhome

If you own commercial or industrial property, you know that the stuff needed in your buildings to support human beings that work in them is bigger than the stuff used in homes. It can also be older. The term “legacy” is used to describe older HVAC equipment. It is a polite way of saying old. Sometimes older than dirt. There are industrial AC systems where each unit is as big as a Class A motorhome. Working in HVAC repair in NYC, I have seen a lot of old stuff in buildings still being used. The longevity of a system is attributable to its original quality and its maintenance. In New York we have hot summers and cold winters. We can get torrential rains and blizzards that dump feet of snow. It is humid in the summer and dry in the winter. That is a lot for any HVAC system to handle. I am surprised that they last as long as they do.

A Really Nice Studio Apartment

I knew what I wanted when I started looking at Santa Fe apartments, even though I could not put it into words for anyone else to help me. I just knew that as soon as I saw what I wanted, I would know instantly. I looked at several different complexes, but I was not happy with anything that I saw until I got to the Las Palomas apartments website. When I looked at their studio apartments, I knew that they were perfect for me. The one that I really liked is only 500 square feet, which might seem too small for some people.

For me though, it was the perfect size. I did not see the need of looking for a one bedroom apartment that has bigger rooms, when that is something that I just do not need.

Finally Getting the Apartment We Have Always Wanted

Have you ever lived in an apartment you did not like? I think anyone who has ever lived in apartments has had at least one experience like that. I promised my wife we would never sign another lease like the one we went through last year. We finally found the perfect place for us after our lease was up. We could not wait to move. We wanted a place that was pet friendly because we were definitely adopting a dog. When we started looking for great apartments in Alamo Heights area, our old place was definitely off the list. I cannot believe our old landlord actually asked us if we wanted to renew our lease.

We started looking in the newspaper, online and in the real estate circulars that come out. We were so happy to find much better quality apartments in the Alamo Heights area. The new place allows pets, and they have a fire pit! I really enjoy an evening fire on the weekends. Those Adirondack chairs around the fire pit just call my name.

The Perfect Apartment for Me

I had never lived in Tennessee before so I was not really sure what I was getting myself into. My brother had recently moved there with his family, and I was missing them something awful. He had married my best friend, and the two of them have two kids. I was in Ohio, where all of us had been raised, but there was nothing holding me there. I work from home, so I could work from anywhere. When I told my best friend what I was thinking about, she told me about an apartment in Cordova TN that she felt would be perfect for me.

It is only a couple of miles from them, and we would be able to see each other as much as we wanted, which was likely going to be every day. The apartment complex had everything that I could want, and that she could want too! We both love to swim, and it was something she wanted her kids to get involved in as well. There is a large pool there as well as a playground for children of their age.

Moving on My Own to an Apartment

I had to make a decision pretty fast not long ago. I could either move to the east coast with my parents or I could stay in Salt Lake City and live on my own. My parents were heading off for a new adventure in the form of a new job for my dad. They were selling their home to a good friend of theirs, which meant I either had to move with them or find my own place. I started looking at apartments for Salt Lake City because I had a great job myself, plus I did not want to leave my boyfriend.

Best Luxury Apartments in Palm Beach

I won’t lie, being rich is pretty nice. I did not have a lot of money for most of my life. But when my uncle died, he left me a large sum of money. I guess it was considerably more money than the left to anyone else, and I did not even know him that well. Anyway, I have added to that money by quite a bit in the interim years. I am currently trying to find luxury apartments in West Palm Beach because that seems like a great vacation spot. I would buy a condo, but I don’t have enough familiarity with the state of Florida in order to make that sort of commitment.

I am really excited about the prospects of living, at least part of the time, in West Palm Beach. I might move to Florida on a permanent basis in a few years, but I have a business that I own on the other side of the country, and while I do not contribute a lot in terms of the day to day operations of the business, there are still quite a few reasons why I need to visit the business in person on nearly a weekly basis. I am not sure how much more of responsibility I would be willing to hand over to the staff at the business. They are good people, that is for sure, but the only reason that the business runs smooth enough that I do not have to be involved in the daily operations of the business, is because I did such a good job building it in the first place. I guess that I should start looking for a place, I have a couple of things in mind. But the one I really like is located right on the beach.

Choosing an Apartment over a House

I started looking at apartments in Newark DE even before I found out that my husband was hired on at the plant there. I was just really hoping that he would get the position, because it meant that we would live a lot closer to my family. I had been living almost six hours away for a couple of years, and it was just time for me to come home. I already picked out the apartment complex that I wanted us to live at too. It is called the Emblem, and it is just a really nice place for a person to call home.

As soon as my husband got the news that he was hired as the new plant manager, I filled out the application for the Emblem. I wanted to get everything in order before we even got into town.
