Looking For An Apartment Is Harder Than I Thought

Looking For An Apartment Is Harder Than I Thought

I live in Plano, TX and I have stayed with my parents for too long. I have decided that now is the time to branch out and get my own place, so I started my apartment search about a month ago. The thing that is crazy is the fact that I thought it would be much easier than it has been. This is like some nightmare I am having a difficult time waking up from.

The first thing that gave me trouble was trying to decide on a good price range. I created a budget before I got started, but this would only let me afford places in Plano that leave a lot to be desired. There is nothing worse than thinking you will find a gem and being showed a place that has ripped linoleum, walls with holes in them and people milling around in the halls.

Another issue I have is the fact that I pinpointed one area that I would love to live in and I just cannot afford it. This makes me feel terrible since it means that I will have to look for an apartment in an area that is not very well known to me. I am not closeminded when it comes to trying new things, but I am not trying to live in a place where I cannot be completely comfortable. I will have to do some serious research to see what I can come up with.

I thought that I would look at a few places and end up signing a l;ease right away, but it seems like my search is just getting started. I know that this is part of being a responsible adult, but I wish things were much easier than this.
