Be the Master of Your Move

Posted On: Thursday, July 2nd, 2015

Tips for a Stress-Free MoveYou’ve saved your pennies and budgeted for your rent, but have you planned for all of the details after you’ve signed your lease? Moving into an apartment is a big step, but it can be made much easier if you prioritize planning before you drive away from your former residence. If you’re considering moving into a new apartment, there are some simple solutions to mastering your move:

Make moving arrangements in advance: Are you using professionals or your friends to help you move? Whether you’re trusting your buddies or resting easy with the pros, make your arrangements several weeks ahead of time. Even if you’re moving yourself, this may mean renting a truck or using short-term storage. Some apartment communities have relationships with moving companies that offer discounts, so make sure you check with your new community office to see if this is an option.

Don’t procrastinate on your packing: Start with the trinkets and seasonal items that don’t get used very often, and save the everyday-use items for the end. If you start packing early, you’ll relieve yourself of that stress on the night before your move. (more…)

Why Millennials Would Rather Rent Than Buy

Posted On: Thursday, June 25th, 2015

Millennials would rather rent than buy, outnumbering Baby Boom generation As the job market continues to improve, young college graduates are rapidly becoming the largest share of the American workforce. However, due to the national $1 trillion student loan debt and an increased “sharing mentality” among Millennials, this surge in the labor force has not necessarily translated into home sales.

According to a recent study by the Pew Research Center, Millennials will surpass the Baby Boom generation in size this year. This growing demographic has extensive knowledge of technology and is more likely to graduate from college, making these individuals more desirable candidates for jobs while also burdening them with never-ending student loan debts. Because of this, the option of renting is becoming more appealing and the idea of homeownership is now a distant concept for those in the 18-34 age range.

Millennials choose to rent for several reasons. For one, the majority of jobs that require the knowledge and skills many recent graduates possess are ones that happen to be available in major cities throughout the country. Therefore, Millennials are no longer looking to live in large suburban homes because they are not convenient to work or they simply cannot afford to finance a home. Many people in their 20s are also more likely to change jobs or relocate for work within five years of accepting their first jobs. So, they see no point in being tied down to a major purchase they made when they were fresh out of college. Additionally, renting does not require extensive home maintenance, which often contributes to stress that Millennials do not want, need or have time for as they are starting their careers.

Posted On: Wednesday, April 15th, 2015
