There is no place like home. I remember my first apartment, eating a peanut butter sandwich at midnight and not being worried about waking someone else up. It was pretty wonderful, my kitchen, my peanut butter, my own place. The problem is that it was tiny. The kitchen was a corner of the main living area, the living room was 15 x 7 feet, so with a couch on one wall and a tv on the other, there was just room to walk through it.
Looking at apartments.com would have been so much better if had been available then. The site is really easy to navigate, you can pick your options. Once you put in the town or city and state, a dropdown menu gives you an option of neighborhoods,.You can choose how many rooms and bathrooms you need and the amenities you're looking for in an apartment as well as the price range. Then you can click on the results to see photos of the apartment, information about the complex and pricing.
This Anchorage complex is a good fit. It's close to my dad's house, has a fitness center, garage and high speed internet. This is a great way to search for your next apartment.
