I made an appointment with a real estate agent in Denver a couple of months ago. I had tried hard to get a job in the city because I really liked it there. It was a pretty happy day when the interviewer called me and told me that I had the position if I wanted it. She said they were hoping that I would start within two weeks. So, I needed to rush to get things done quickly. I knew that I would need to live the apartment life for awhile, but I didn’t want to do that for too long. I wanted a place that I could settle into and feel comfortable with as soon as possible. I prefer living in a home because they are more spacious and they just feel more comfortable to me.
I last lived in an apartment around 10 years ago. It was really nice to live in a home from then until currently. You don’t have to worry about hearing everything your neighbors do through the walls that you share if you live in an apartment. It is also nice to not have any neighbors who live above you and stomp around like elephants at 3AM in the morning. And, of course, if you live above someone else, you also have to spend time trying to be quiet in your place so that you don’t upset the neighbor’s downstairs. To me, the ability to live in a house of your own is the ultimate freedome when it comes to daily life. You are free to do what you want.
I found a nice place that I was interested in the very first day that I went looking for a place with an agent. I did not expect it to happen that quickly, but I am glad that I did. It meant that I would only need to live in temporary housing for a very short time until I went through the closing procedures on the new place.
