Check out these apartments

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
As most of you know, I'm out scoping for Apartments since I'll be moving next month. I got a Apartment guide & found this website from that guide. These are the ones I've looking at...I'm a bit over whelmed by this search. I like them all...but they are all so different. For some reason I'm drawn to Lion Gate apartments.

Could you take a look at these and tell me what ya think? Thanks!

I couldn't look at them. It said an invalid number was submitted or something like that.

Yeah..all of those allow cats. There are some nicer one available, but I've budgeted no more than $500 for rent. That's crazy the way it is...I had a 3 bedroom house with a full basement & 2 bathrooms for only $250 a month!

There is just something about Lions Gate that I like. I do wish they'd have a floor plan pic though.

omfg

1 Bedrooms from $430

I pay $950 for a one bedroom that isnt NEARLY as nice as those!!

Most one bedroom apartments in the Bay Area are way over $1,000 per month! And, some of those are old and run-down. Sicy, isn't Nebraska looking more and more desirable each day?
post #12 of 29
YES LOL!!!

I guess I cant really complain. I do like my apartment. Its not big but I have a garage and a pool and I'm a few blocks from work.

I just cant believe such beautiful apartments go for $400. If I could make the money I make here in Cali, in Nebraska, I could live in a nice apartment and actually have spare money to buy stuff! LOL

Shell, the first link you gave us didn't work for me either.

I think Lions Gate looks like a very nice place to live!

We're in almost the same situation in Toronto! If the Lions Gate apartments were in Toronto, you would be paying probably $1000 - $1200 or more. Plus, there would be NO vacancy because the waiting list would be too long!!!

When we owned our condo, we could have rented it out for $1350. That comes with no parking (it would cost you an additional $150 month) and the unit is a one bedroom apartment that was only 735 sq. feet.

Most people who want to rent in Toronto either pay too much for too little, or pay low rent but live in a gross area or basement apartment.

OMG , I guess I am spoilt here in Georgia . I pay less then $ 500.00 a month as house payments . Here you get a small appartment for $ 350.00 and up , but most don't allow pets . If they allow pets you would have to pay a none refunding deposit of $ 200.00 .But the jobs suck here , only min. wage by $5.25 I think .

I like the Lions Gate too, but no dishwasher. Some of the other apartments had all the amenities of the Lions Gate, but no dishwasher.
My favorite was the Water Brook apartments, but they only allow one cat. How many cats to you have, Shell?

I live in a two bedroom ranch with an attached garage and my mortgage is $358.00 and that includes insurance and taxes.
post #17 of 29
Nora, your mortgage payments are SO reasonable! I hope you don't mind my asking, but what is the full price of your house????
post #18 of 29
My house was $40,000.00. They wanted $45,000.00, but I countered at $40,000.00 and because they had already built another house and didn't want two mortgages, they accepted.

I live in a quiet neighborhood on a dead end street. The huge park in our city where all the events take place in only 3 blocks away. Very handy on the 4th of July and such. In the winter they have a tobogan hill where you can ride a tobogan down and have a lift take you back up to the top. It is a beautiful park and in my town the most desirable houses are around this park, so I got really lucky.

I'm looking at the price of your house!!!! Down the street from my house, a vacant piece of land for residential sale was going for $100k! And in cottage country, 2 1/2 hours north from Toronto, cottages on a good lake start at $150K.

I seriously have to move out of this urban money pit!

I'd go for Waterbrook, because of the larger kitchen. Always hated those tiny, cramped apartment kitchens.
post #21 of 29
I know you've heard about me rave about the beautiful place where I live. Our natural surroundings would take anyones breath away. But if your looking for a urban environment, this is not it. I have to travel about 3 hours to Green Bay to find a real mall. Cost of living is low though and for 100,000 you can buy a lot of house. Because of our many lakes, we have people from Chicago and Detroit who build gorgeous retirement or summer homes here.

Houses in my neighborhood are around $400,000, and less than a mile up the hill from me they are over a million -- I'll never own ... unless Harry & Maggie start bringing home the bacon!

I can't get over how cheap rent is in Lincoln NE. I wish I could have the same rent, living here in Los Angeles. Rent is A LOT more, let me tell you.
post #24 of 29
they are all nice. I think I liked lionsgate the best.

it's crazy how much the cost of living fluxuates across the country.
post #25 of 29
I liked the Waters one also. It is expensive here also but some of them have special deals like one month rent free or half of the first month, etc. Pet rates are way up, now they charge per month in addition to the pet deposit that you may or may not get back when you move out.

Thanks everyone for your opinions! I can't believe that some of you pay so much for housing! Yowzers! That's a lot of money! I just don't know how you guys could handle everything being so expensive. My Dad & I figured that with my new wages I'll be able to afford a place up to $500 to $550 a month. I'm just amazed that I'll be able to afford it, but I can't believe that rent is that high. It just seems like wasted money to me...but I can't buy a place either since I'll be moving every few years.

Hey Sicy...wanna move to Nebraska & be my neighbor?LOL!
post #27 of 29
Oh my
I just cannot believe what we pay in Ca. For what I payed for my house in Ca, I could have a mansion somewhere else(lol)

All the apts look nice.
post #28 of 29
Shell i like Lion Gate also, i would guess you will choice the one that will allow all your cats, dont you have more than one? i am blown away by some of these rent prices, but the cost of living is different in different places, you can rent a real nice house around here for 400-600 a month, they all look nice. good luck on choosing

Yeah...I've got 2 cats. I plan on taking them both with me (Tiki & Echo...Bud is my brothers cat so he won't be going with me). But I could lie & tell them I have only 1 cat...but it would be hell to pay if I got caught.
