When I first went housekeeping, I was looking at different housing alternatives to suit my needs and my budget.
I told the realtor what my monthly budget was for rent and utilities, and my three make or breaks in property. After coming up with a workable rent and utility price, I had to give some thought to my make or breaks. I knew I wanted a good-sized bedroom and kitchen. I also wanted to have a garage for my car. She told me that narrowed things down if I didn’t want street parking, but she finally found three apartments for me to look at. I didn’t like the air quality of the first apartment building, even though I loved the apartment. Everything smelled old and musty. The next apartment had a beautiful kitchen, but a small bedroom that my bed wouldn’t fit in. The third didn’t have the largest of kitchens, but the bedroom was amazing and there was a garage. I asked about the heating and air conditioning, and she showed me to the garage. The HVAC system was in the garage’s corner, close to the house. There was HVAC in the garage along with it housing the HVAC system, and I fell in love with that tiny house. It was part of another property, but the older couple that were renting out the apartment were very nice. They said their daughter lived there until she got married, and they were charging me my rental fee with all utilities, including HVAC included. As long as they approved my references, the house was mine.
