We have been to places where living is quite different than what we were used to growing up. It is not unexpected to discover that some other cultures have a different approach to what they consider normal living and normal houses. However, one thing my wife and I found to be really interesting is a residential property in Turkey that we bought in the Silivri region of Istanbul. You really cannot tell the difference between this little community and residential communities where we grew up in the States. The homes here in this suburban setting of Turkey are two and three story homes with lawns, swimming pools and gardens just like you would find in small towns back where we grew up. (more…)
I am pretty picky about the places I have lived at. One time, it took me nearly three months to find the right place for me. I wish I could have stayed there, but my job forces me to move around a lot. Thankfully, that was in an area where my brother lived, so I was able to stay with him until I found my dream apartment. Now that I am moving again, I am looking well in advance at apartments for rent in Boston area because I don’t have any relatives that live there. If I am not able to find a place to live at that I like, then I am either going to live out of a hotel or settle for an apartment that I am just not happy with.
It turned out that I did not have to do either one. (more…)
I know some people think that I am spoiled, but I’m really not. I do like nice things, but I work very hard for everything that I have. And, let’s get real. If you have your choice between a luxury apartment for rent in Arlington MA or a cheap apartment in a bad section of town, which one are you going to choose? I think anyone would like to make the same choices that I make, and I just work harder to ensure that they can happen for me.
When I decided to move because I was no longer happy with the neighborhood I was living in, I knew that I wanted to look at the Arlington 360 apartments first. I have driven by that area a lot, and I have been really impressed with what I have seen. I did not look into more details there because I was under a lease for several more months, but those months went pretty fast. (more…)
