I Am Finally Home in Vegas

I love living in Vegas. I was born and raised here, but I moved to the east coast with my family when I was a sophomore in high school. I even went to college there, but my heart always considered Vegas my home. When I graduated from college, I applied at a few schools in Vegas, wanting to teach there rather than in New York. I was hired on almost immediately at one of the schools, which meant I had to hurry and find an apartment. I looked at the community website for one that my childhood friend lives at, and I loved everything that I saw there.

For me, it was half about the community amenities and half about the apartment itself. I knew that I was going to want some downtime on my own there, especially when I had to do things like read research papers and grade tests. The apartment that I found there has nine foot ceilings, air conditioning, washers and dryers, granite, hardwood flooring and so much more. (more…)

We Did End Up with Our Perfect Home

I wanted to find a nice house without a lot of effort. When I bought my first house nearly 20 years ago, I didn’t mind because I found it exciting. That lost its appeal on my second and third houses, and I definitely didn’t want to attempt to find my fourth and hopefully last home without the help of a Denver realtor. After finding the best one in the area, I told him what I wanted. I only wanted to look at properties that matched the criteria that my family and I wanted in a home.

My wife and I have three kids, and they are all quite active. (more…)

Comfortable Apartment Living in Las Vegas

I refer to it as our little oasis in the desert. I like the apartment where we live in Las Vegas. You can click here to see the Bloom Apartment Homes yourself. Two swimming pools is a feature that I like. I use to do most of my swimming at night during the middle of the week to avoid crowds where we used to live. My favorite times were when we had the pool to ourselves. There are two where we live now. The amenities at our place are the things we like. A feature that is very nice for apartment living is having our own washer and dryer in the apartment. No need to haul any clothes to a laundry room or laundromat.

I like the floor plan of where we live too. We have a nice kitchen with stainless steel appliances including the dishwasher. (more…)
