While you make preparations for the new you, don’t leave your space on the back burner. Here are a five things we think you should resolve to do differently this year with your space. Resolve to tidy up more effectively and efficiently Photo Cred According to the Cleaning Institute, though most Americans spend six hours a week cleaning, many don’t know if they are cleaning enough, if they are cleaning correctly or where to focus their cleaning efforts. We recommend spot treatments and maintenance on a daily basis and deep cleaning a section of your apartment once a week–don’t forget things like dusting the ceiling fan or cleaning the baseboards! With small and consistent effort, you’ll always have a tidy place to come home to. If you’re not convinced, here are the best cleaning practices backed by scientific research. Resolve to never be late on bills again Photo Cred Adulting is hard, and worrying over rent, utilities and other bills can really dampen the mood. If you’re no stranger to late payments and skipping a bill to pay on another, we proudly declare, NEW YEAR, NEW YOU! Pro tip: Creating spreadsheets and calendar reminders can help you stay on top of all of your bills and keep you accountable.

Whether you’re a first time renter or an all time pro, renting can be tedious, overwhelming and just plain annoying, but we’re here to help! Our Ultimate Guide to Renting is broken down into easy to read sections, especially for the skimmers (you know who you are), and covers everything from pre-search prep to move in day! So, sit back, grab a snack and let’s kick some rental ass! 01. Prep Work Before you deep dive into the abyss of internet apartment searches and start scheduling tours, you need to figure a few things out first: Your budget: What can you comfortably afford with your current income? Apartment complexes typically require that you (or the combined household) make an annual income of 3x the monthly rent. But we gotta go a little further and ask that even if you qualify, would spending $1600 on rent every month starve you to death? …we’re not into that. The size of the apartment: One, two, three bedrooms? Figuring out what size apartment to rent depends greatly on your needs, your lifestyle and how many people will be living there. Roommates:…

The Top 5 Apartment Amenities That Dallas Renters Really Want

By | amenities, Apartments, Dallas

Amenities are a big deal in the apartment world. In fact, I may or may not know someone who was convinced to apply at a specific complex because the on-site gym equipment boasted the same leather that Ferrari uses; also, that person may or may not have been me. Regardless, some major perks of living at an apartment instead of a house are the included AMENITIES. In a recent effort to get a leg up on other properties, developers have been getting creative with the added benefits. We wanted to know which apartment features y’all think are worth it, considering that renters are the ones actually paying for them in the long run. After asking our people and doing some digging, we put together a quick list of the top five amenities that add true value to an apartment. Check it out and let us know if you agree! DOG PARKS A clean and well lit place to bring your four-legged friend to frolic around, take care of business and roll in the dirt (WITHOUT HAVING TO LOAD HIM IN THE CAR AFTERWARDS) is practically non-negotiable. Photo Cred REAL FUNCTIONING FITNESS FACILITIES A big gym with new, well cared for equipment (including more than one squat rack) saves cash and the commute for the gym rats–extra karma points if there’s a yoga studio.
