Choosing an Apartment over a House

My husband and I were renting a home on the outskirts of Vegas, but we were not really pleased with it. Our landlord raised the rental price twice in the last three years, and we honestly had no idea if he was trying to price us out of there or gouge us. Either way, we decided that we were not going to take it anymore, and I started looking at a website that shows different apartment complexes that have units for rent in Vegas. We had already determined that we would be happier in an apartment for a number of reasons.

The first reason is that complexes are run by management companies rather than a greedy landlord. (more…)

An Honest Estimate for a Roof Repair

I can remember when I was a kid and a huge storm came through the small town we lived in. Every town sees storms, but this one was bad and caused a lot of damage. I was hoping to never see another one like that, and I didn’t up until about a year ago. We got a huge storm though, and unfortunately there was a lot of damage. I happened to be one of the homeowners who needed to find a company that does roof installation in Brooklyn NY, and quickly at that.

I started calling around and explained my predicament to a few different roofing companies. (more…)

Couldn’t Believe We Had Termites

When we found evidence of termites, we needed an exterminator in NYC and we needed them yesterday. What really made me mad about the whole situation is that we just moved into this house about a year ago. That means it was inspected before the sale could be approved and no one said anything at all about a termite infestation. That is incredible to me. Termites will ruin a house faster than just about anything outside of a natural disaster. To miss something this obvious is proof that someone wasn’t doing there job. We’re considering a lawsuit.

The lawsuit aside, we still had to take action quickly against the problem. Letting termites continue to chew through the wood in your house isn’t an option. I could tell me had them, but I had no idea how long we had them or the extent of the damage. Maybe I caught it in time, but I had strong doubts about that. (more…)

We Need a New Way of Thinking

Finding work outside the United States has long been a dream of mine. Now that President Trump has decided to take the American Dream and burn it to the ground until nothing is left but the shadow of the wall, I finally made the choice to call my new home Singapore. Massive Infinity in Singapore is one of those companies that are able to provide work for mobile developers like myself that absolutely need a change of pace. I can’t stand by and watch my beautiful country become corrupted by the idiocy that is our supposed President – a man who lost the popular vote but is somehow still our Commander in Chief.

Singapore knows what they’re about. (more…)

A Night of Outdoor Partying

Living in Seaside Residences has been pretty great. Last week, some of the other people who live in the building decided to have an outdoor party. I haven’t been living here as long as they have, so this was my first time going to one of the parties they have at the building. They use the outdoor grilling area to cook up lots of tasty food. One of my favorite things in the world to eat is Singaporean cuisine, so this was like heaven for me.

I met some new people at the party that also lived in the building. There are a lot of rooms in the building, so unless you knock on each door and talk to every person, the chances of meeting everyone outside of a party setting where they’re all in one place isn’t exactly likely. I didn’t realize that there were so many people my age living in the building. I always thought that aside from the ones living on a few of the floors, everyone else was a little older. (more…)
