We took the following video yesterday for the purpose of sharing with my in-laws. They live out of state and have not been able to visit to see the property or the inside of what their apartment will look like. They have driven through this complex before...but it was two years ago!
As you can see from the video, we pointed out where our apartment will be and then we showed them where their building is located.
I am a little envious because they are renting their apartment (same type and size as ours) for $502 a month. We are paying $567 a month! The apartment is 1100 square feet, two bedroom with a den and one bath. Not only that, the apartment complex lowered their prices significantly AFTER we applied and got approved. Although, we have not signed a lease yet...so I may ask about the lowered prices...
They lucked out on their apartment because she called to ask if there was a two bedroom with a den and one bath apartment available and was told "no." She ended up calling a few days later and talked to another person and said there is one available but it isn't listed yet. So they basically got the last two bedroom with a den!
We are all looking forward to living near each other again because Shannon's dad's health is declining and also it would be helpful to have them near if we wanted them to watch Kyle one night if we wanted to go out. Also, if our car broke down, Shannon could use their car to get to work.
I am a little relieved that we won't be living right next to each other. At least we're a few buildings away.
