The last time I looked for an apartment to move into, I made a pretty big mistake. I did not do a lot of research, and I also signed a 12 month lease before getting all of my ducks in a row. I had to endure living there for 12 months even though I was very unhappy with it, which is why I started doing research for a new apartment for North Las Vegas when I still had two months left on my lease. I was not going to make the same mistake twice, and I wanted plenty of time to look over all of my options.
I only looked at apartment complexes that have three bedroom units. My ex has custody of our two children, but we co-parent as much as possible. I wanted them to each have their own room when they are at my apartment because that would be at least several nights a week when my ex works late. It did not take me long to find the apartment that I wanted to get, but I did want to look at it in person before I agreed to anything.
When I took a tour of an available three bedroom unit, I knew that not only did I want to live in the complex, but I actually wanted that very apartment because of the gorgeous views from the patio. The layout is perfect too. My room has a large walk in closet and its own bath, and the kids each have a room with a very large closet too and plenty of room for TVs and other furniture. They share a bathroom, but it has a double vanity, which helps a lot. The other rooms are all spacious, and the kids like it just as much as I do, which is all that matters!
