Apartment Hunting

Life has been hectic with midterms, my job and mourning over the loss of not being in a sorority.  It's safe to say there have been plenty of late nights, devoured brownies, and time spent watching season after season of Grey's Anatomy. 

But something exciting that's going on is that my friends and I are starting to hunt for apartments for next year! This is especially exciting for me since HGTV has been one of my favorite T.V. stations since I was 8, and I almost applied to school for interior design.

Thinking about budget, and bedrooms, and square footage is exciting for me! This process has been nuts since we can't actually sign a contract until next May at the latest. 

My Must Have for an Apartment or House:

  • A max monthly rent of $2,500.00 a month
  • 2-4 bedrooms
  • A balcony or backyard
  • Relatively clean kitchen 
  • Anything but carpet (hopefully) 
  • Within 3 miles of my college campus
  • The ability to paint the rooms for the duration of the contract 

Do you live off campus? How was your house search? Is is better than living on campus?
