upgrade.downgrade.

Ahhh, apartment searching - so exciting yet so frustrating. I stumbled upon this hidden gem last night while surfing the night, and decided to check it out early this morning before work. I fell in love (of course) so during my lunch break, I brought the husband over for his approval. I was caught by the reasonable price that I saw online, only to find out that the one for that price doesn't feature the upgrades (these photos from my phone show an upgraded unit). I saw the apartment without the upgrade but knew that I wanted this one so I didn't take any pics. However, with my husband being more of a practical person,  he didn't understand why we would pay more money for the same amount of space just because I want stainless steel appliances, updated cabinets and tile downstairs instead of carpet...men! They always bring you back down to reality! I realized he was right, and so we are planning to get a unit just like this one...minus the upgrades...

This is the unit with the upgrades, we're not getting this one :(
A 1 bedroom townhouse...just enough space for us...

I can't beat the price for this place

Don't you hate when the man brings you back to reality...LOL!! I would have been the same way, but finanically I guess it makes sense.

I hate moving, but love being in a new place!

I've missed you Gisela :(

OMG Craigslist is the worst in New York - so many scams! I've had bad experiences with it...here in Florida it's not so bad though - I know a couple of people who have rented based on what they've seen on there and it was actually the same apt when they got there, lol
