There seems to be a huge lifestyle trend shift amongst millennials. Â Many of them would claim that their plan is to never get married, have a cat or dog, and rent an apartment forever. Â But it is not too hard to see what had caused this change in what is considered normal living space.
After the home ownership market depreciated in value, lots of folks had to change their lifestyles. Â Home ownership is just not as feasible of an affordable option for many Americans now when compared to renting property. Â Whether you are renting a house or an apartment, keep in mind that there will almost always be neighbors; and that there will definitely be a land lord to answer to. Â Learning how to share space with others can be difficult to acclimate to at first, but here are some tips to help with transitioning.
Keep in mind that this post does not give advice for roommates (but let us know if you would like some pointers on it.) Â There are many things to learn if you are new to living in apartments, condos, townhouses, or close-in-proximity bungalows.
If your building has shared laundry, then make sure to remove your load promptly and always clean the lint filters. Â Although your neighbors may not be courteous, keep in mind that the land lord may not call a repairman right away if a machine overheats and needs to be fixed. Â Also make sure to not use detergents with strong-smelling chemicals, as these (when used in excess as they often are) will cause blockage in washing machines.
