I was looking for an apartment to rent in Silver Spring, MD. I was already renting one, but there were too many break-ins going on in the area. One of my neighbors had their car broken into twice and another neighbor had their apartment broke into. Even though I had a lease, I wanted to move out of this area. I knew there would be penalties for moving out because I would be breaking my lease, but I thought it would be for the best.
I started searching around for apartments for rent in Silver Spring, MD. I went to the store and bought a newspaper to see if I could find any rentals there. I found a few that I called about, but once I found out where they were located, I wasn’t interested. These areas were also known for crime. That’s when I went online and searched for apartments for rent in the area. I found a great website that had plenty of apartment listings. This website also mapped out the area where they were located so I could find out more about them before I contacted the landlord to get information. I found several apartments in desirable areas and a few of them were actually affordable. I was able to easily contact them through the website and let them know I was interested in seeing them in person. There were pictures on the website, but I wanted to actually see what they were like. It wasn’t long before these landlords contacted me back and I set up appointments with a few of them to see what the apartments looked like and if they were right for me.
The next few days I looked at 4 different apartments and I found one that was just perfect. The rent was just right and it included the utilities in the rent which I couldn’t pass up. I made arrangements with the landlord to get the paperwork done and make the payment so I could move in.
It wasn’t long before I had all my things moved into this apartment and was finally away from all the crime in the area I lived in. It was such a relief to move away from all of this. I love where I live now and hope I can keep renting this one because it’s really nice.
