My daughter and I have been on our own for her whole life. She is now 15 years old, and I consider her opinion in any major events in our lives. When I found out that the rent was going up on the house we had been renting, I knew that it was time to look for a new place. I asked her what she thought, and she got pretty excited. She told me that there are apartments for rent in Lewisville TX, which is just the next town over. I was concerned that she would have to change school districts, but she was okay with that.
She did not really like her school that much, and I knew that a lot of her friends did go to the high school in the next town. It would put me closer to my work too, so it was really a win win situation for both of us. She even knew which apartment complex she wanted us to look at first. One of her friends lives at Toscana Valley Ridge apartments. While I had never been in them, she has and she said they are really nice.
I was concerned about the price if they are that nice, but it turns out that we would be paying less than what we did for rent on the house we had been living in for the last few years. I looked at the floor plan, and I really liked what I saw. We would each have our own room and our own bathroom, plus there is a nice patio that we would be able to relax on in when the weather is nice. The best part is all the storage space, something we have never had. It did not take us long to decide that this was going to be the perfect home for both of us.
