The apartment building where I live was built in the ’40s and is made of concrete + brick. On one side it is REALLY good, because it is very unlikely to get damaged, and brick exterior is very durable, which will keep our condo fees lower.
But the problem is – there were no Cell Phones when my building was put up, and they did not care about cell phone reception.
Nasty roaches – they eat your food and crawl everywhere in your apartment, and it seems impossible to get rid of them. The consumer grade bait traps just do not work. Raid, Combat, Hot Shot – they claim it will work, but roaches just get used to these products and after a short while it does not affect them anymore.
Truth be told – I grew up in an apartment in Moscow, and we had serious roach problem. My building was made of concrete panels, so naturally there were many cracks. Also roaches came up through ventilation ducts. Basically we tried every over the counter solution there was – traps, sprays, tablets – nothing works. These bastards kept coming back!
I currently live in an apartment (condo) in a very SAFE and EXPENSIVE town – Brookline, MA (rated #1 in US by Niche and Money Magazine in 2015). I love Brookline and my location. I can get on the T (train) and be in downtown Boston in 30 minutes – no need for a car. Brookline has some of the best schools in MA, and since we have kids, it’s a huge bonus. We have restaurants and cafes and food shopping, and a movie theater, as well as all other necessary amenities within a 15 minutes walk. My not so big apartment is 100 ft from Beacon St – the Boston Marathon route. It’s so well located that renting our place on AirBnB (for $250 / night) is super easy.
AirBnB does not need an introduction – it’s one of top 10 startups in the world, and is well-known. But many people who live in an apartment (own or rent) can make some extra money, and don’t even know it. Here are some clever ways you can make money with your apartment, while still living there full-time.
Although I’ve used AirBnB (link gives you $25 travel credit) for a couple of years now (to rent a place when we traveled) I never thought of renting out our place – it just never crossed my mind. Enlightenment came recently, when my neighbor rented his apartment (same as ours) for 10 days for $2300 – whaaat? Yes!
Finding your very first apartment is a momentous occasion. It’s a rite of passage that proves that you really are an adult now. You have your own space. You don’t have to sneak friends and “more-than-friends” in and out. The place is yours to do with as you please (as long as your lease allows it!)
Getting caught up the excitement, though, causes many to get themselves in a mess. There are some very important factors to consider before and immediately after you sign your name on the lease. Be sure to avoid these common pitfalls in your first apartment.
Documents, Damages and Domestic Partners
When you rent, you live and die by your lease agreement.
My husband and I had recently purchased a new home. Though we debated for a long time over whether to purchase a newly renovated home, or an older home, I eventually won the fight and we went with an older home purchase. What can I say; I’m a sucker for crown moldings, hardwood floors, and the overall aesthetics of an older home. Anyway, we’ve been slowly transitioning into our new home. As I become more aware of my personal finances and carbon footprint we leave on the earth, I’ve been trying to be more conscious of ways to save money and help the environment.
Needless to say, after only three months of living in our new home, I realized that we were spending entirely too much on electricity.
