Staying “Unstuck” Residentially
America has many fine living solutions. There are beautiful cities from coast to coast in this country, and it can take a while to truly decide where you want to put down roots. Maybe you want to live in one place for a decade, then spend a decade somewhere else. Today it’s more possible to follow through with choices like this than ever.
But you don’t want to be stuck somewhere for a decade because you don’t have an option. It’s better to be able to choose your situation. There’s an old quote regarding frontier roads that goes something like: “Choose your rut wisely, because you’re going to be in it for a long time.” But if it’s not a rut, then that time is simply pleasurable.
To that end, what you might do is a little state-hopping in order to find your perfect luxury apartment. Find a culture, a climate, and a municipality you enjoy, then find an apartment and live there for a few months to a year in order to really get an idea of the city. Think of it as an extended vacation, perhaps.
During that time you can find jobs, or see what the market is like, and truly determine whether or not you’d like to put down roots. But again, be careful! You don’t want to be stuck unnecessarily. If you don’t do your research right from the beginning, you could be stuck with something you don’t want that requires an invasive procedure to set right.
A Helpful Analogy
Sometimes sourcing a tummy tuck in Vegas may have nothing to do with being overweight; as LVCosmeticSurgery.com points out, sometimes people are: “In fairly good shape with a few fat deposits or loose skin around [their] belly that [they] cannot get rid of with diet and exercise.” Renting before a permanent move can be similar.
In both cases, you’re making a concerted effort to change something directly with the tools you have at hand, and the result is both psychologically and physically better. There are many ways to live your life, and what works for one person may not work for another. For example, someone might prefer the west coast, someone else Colorado.
Frisco or Denver?
When it comes to luxury apartments in San Francisco, CarmelApartments.com offers residents: “…apartments for rent [that] have access to multiple restaurants, beauty salons and gift shops, as well as a post office, full-service market, dentist, optometrist, dry cleaner and more.” With everything in walking distance, you can save on driving.
But perhaps the bay area is too expensive for your tastes. Luxury apartments need not be the most expensive in the world to provide you with the sort of top-tier amenities you’re looking for!
Denver also has a CarmelApartments.com page which offers housing solutions in LoDo that feature: “Brand new apartment homes featuring modern architecture, stylish interiors, thoughtful amenities and a downtown Denver location that mingles the best of LoDo and LoHi.”
And there are currently a lot of things to recommend Denver. The economy is in excellent shape, the climate is mild even in the wintertime (though you will have blizzards on occasion), and there is quite a bit of outdoor activity to be pursued. Skiing, rock climbing, hiking, swimming, cycling—you name it.
You can do many of these things in San Francisco, but minus the winter. Some people will prefer one climate, some will prefer the other. Your preferences will definitely vary. As a result it makes sense to lease a luxury apartment for a few months to a year and get an idea of the economic, ecological, and sociable climate before you establish roots.
