With the new year, many renters start thinking about the coming year and many start searching for a new apartment in anticipation. Moving to a new place is an exciting milestone — but it’s also a huge undertaking.
When you rent an apartment, you might be moving to a new city for the first time. While searching for an apartment today has gotten easier with websites and apartment finders like RentSeeker.ca offering a large selection of apartment rentals available for rent, moving can be overwhelming — all the more so when you’re in a totally new environment.
When you move into a new apartment, chances are you don’t have the budget to shell out the big bucks at a home design boutique. Even if you don’t want to spend next month’s rent on home décor, you can still make your place look incredible with DIY’s projects!
Whether you’re going to university for the first year this fall or heading back to school for your second or third year, you can never be too prepared. As summer draws to a close, it’s time to start thinking about not only what to bring with you to college, but also what you can do to make the coming year as successful and enjoyable as possible.
Here are 5 Back to School Tips for College and University Students from The RentSeeker.ca Team for all you Students and Happy #BacktoSchool Year!
That first glorious year of university can be the most exciting time in the lives of many students. It’s a chance to live in a new city, to embrace a new cultural shift; it’s a chance to meet other likeminded young people who share your passion and excitement, and who, with luck, will become longtime friends in the years to come.
Of all the rooms in your apartment, you probably spend the most amount of time in your bedroom. After all, it’s where you recuperate after a long day of work, school, or other obligations — and hopefully for at least eight hours a night, if you’re getting enough shut-eye! As such, it’s a place you want to enjoy and feel at peace in; you want it to be conducive to relaxation, harmony, and rest.
Unless you’ve done it dozens of times — and unless you’re the World’s Most Organized Person — moving into a new house or apartment is usually a stressful, expensive, and tiring experience. And while you might cover every last detail of the shuffle from Point A to Point B, sometimes that first night in a new place poses a different set of challenges. After your friends or the movers take off, you’ll find yourself in a very empty-feeling space, surrounded by towering piles of boxes and bare walls. At this point, it’s common to feel a bit stranded, a bit out of sorts and dazed, and a bit irritable — especially if you’re a student moving out for the first time, you’ve never lived alone, or you have young kids or pets just getting accustomed to a major change. … How To Make A New Rental Feel Like Home Sweet Home
