I Found an Apartment Complex That Allowed Me to Move in Immediately

Up until recently, I had been living with a roommate for about three years. It was been tough because the person I was living with is somewhat problematic, and the place where we lived together is her own home. Two weeks ago, she decided she no longer wanted a roommate and told me that I had 24 hours to move out. Panicked, I called friends and asked where I should look for a place to live. They named several places, including Alicante where two of them personally live now.

I had a hard time believing that I would be so lucky as to find a complex that would let me move in right away after being approved. But I also knew that I needed to get a move on and start making calls to some of the places that I was told about.

I have two small dogs, so I needed to make sure that the place I move into would allow dogs. For safety reasons, I wanted a place that had a gate around it. I also wanted to be assured that I could sign a flexible lease in case it was a place that I ended up not liking. I truly did not want to be stuck signing a lease for a year or more that I could not get out of, if necessary.

I ended up each of the other places I heard about, and Alicante was the only one that could fit all my needs on such a quick basis. They said they are fine with both of my dogs, their entire complex is gated and secure, and they even have short-term leases. The best news of all is that they said as long as my application was approved, they have two apartments that are available now, and I could move in immediately.

They approved me quickly, and I’m already in my new place. I love it. It’s affordable, peaceful, and no more crazy roommate! My new apartment is even nicer than the place I lived in previously.

Taking a Step into Apartment Investing

I usually invest in homes, but I wanted to try something a little different for my next investment. I went to http://www.scottmountainbythebrook.com so that I could invest in some of their fine apartment complexes. The right complex can bring in a lot of people who want to rent rooms. It’s not just about the rooms in the complex, but the amenities as well. The amenities play a big part in making the complex look good before the potential residents even see the inside of the apartment. It’s similar to how a lawn can make or break a house before buyers see the inside of the house.

The complex had a pool and a fitness center, which were perfect amenities. People are all about staying healthy and exercising these days, so these two things would convince a lot of people to rent. Not only that, but kids love swimming pools as well, especially in the summer. Potential residents who have kids are likely to rent apartments that have more rooms, which can bring in more revenue. I had a chance to look at the apartments and they were excellent. They had a certain elegance about them that made them look luxurious.

If things go well with the complex, I’ll look into investing in some more. I think the apartments in this area are an untapped revenue for people who want to earn a lot of money from property investment. As long as the competition in this area is low, I can get a strong hold on the market and be the top investor. I might be able to bring some money back into the complex by adding some more things that the residents might be interested in seeing. Maybe they would like to have a childcare center or pet care center built.
