I had been renting the same house for nearly 15 years when I decided that it was time for me to find a new place to live. The crime around the area where I was living was increasing, and I was worried about my two children. It has been just the three of us for years, so we didn’t have anyone else looking out for us. I almost started looking at houses, but I decided to look at apartments near Alamo Heights first. I had been to an apartment that a friend of mine recently started living at, and I really liked it.
It was my first exposure to any kind of apartment, and I was really surprised at what I saw there. I guess I just had this opinion that a house was nicer than an apartment, but I found that the opposite is true. Her apartment is luxurious and spacious, plus there are so many things included with it that it didn’t make sense for me to look at another house that would be older and involve more work from all three of us. I looked at the Niche Apartments, and i found a three bedroom unit that is perfect for us.
The nice thing about this one is that there are two bathrooms there. We have only had one bathroom in the last 15 years, so it was nice to finally have that doubled. Another nice thing is that the kids will not have to change their school district, which is huge for them. We looked at the different floor plans, and we all agreed that the one we picked was perfect for us. The kids are excited that they have a pool and basketball court right there, and I am happy that my kids are living in a safer neighborhood now.
