I Put Down a Deposit on My New Apartment

When I’m looking for a great place to live, I want to see the apartment in person before I make a decision either way. I found a great apartment online last week, so I immediately called to schedule a tour. I was really happy that the apartment complex was just a gorgeous in person as it was online. The paint was new and fresh. It looked like one of the newer places in the area. I like living in places that feel new and modern.

As we began the tour, I had to take a moment to walk next to the pool. I stuck my hand in the water and it was cool and refreshing. It felt like the perfect temperature to me. I really like swimming and I was able to imagine myself swimming laps nearly every day. The tour continues and we stopped by the common picnic area. There was a nice family grilling hamburgers. I introduced myself and told them that I was thinking about moving in. I asked them how they liked living here. They said that they really loved their apartment and the community. I was glad to hear that.

We walked up to what would be my future apartment and the leasing agent opened the door. Inside was one of the most spacious entryways that I’ve seen in an apartment before. I could put so many things in that area. I started picturing all of my belongings and where everything would go. The bathroom was another one of my favorite rooms. The shower looked like it was brand new. It was so modern and spacious. I pictured myself spending a lot of time there. When we got back to the office I was ready to sign the lease. I put down a deposit to ensure that it would be mine.
