Today Travis and I went to Austin to look for an apartment. Travis had already gone by himself two days ago, to see a little bit of what there was.
We used an apartment finder company and reviewed a whole lot of different apartment complexes that would fit our needs: proximity to downtown, dog friendly, and allows leases of less than 1 year. We were about to head out to look at a few of the places when the gentleman helping us found the ideal listing. We decided to go there first!
The location was perfect, the rent alright, and we could move in early January. While we couldn’t view the actual apartment we would be renting, we didn’t see the point to keep on looking (especially after the places Travis had seen). We signed a lease, and now we have a place to stay in the new year! Hurray!
Here is the view from the building’s pool. Pretty sweet, right? Our view should be of a forested steam – not too bad either!
