Apartment hunting has been one of the most frustrating things I’ve come across

And the fact that my little brother found a place before me makes it hurt even more 😒😠

Take your time, being in a hurry may be a huge mistake down the road. Do a very thorough walk through make sure to document and take photo's any damage or things that might be blamed on you should ever find the need to break a lease. Keep ALL receipts for rent payments etc. Read your lease very carefully. Good luck.

Gosh I hate to hear ppl compare theirselves to others especially a family member. Your brother is your brother and you are you. Is your life a competition?
I understand that you want to do well but each person's situation, luck, circumstances are unique.

@REMsleep you completely misread what I said try reading in between the lines.

@Nolovehere You said that it hurt that your brother found a place before you.
What have I missed?
Anyway my comment was meant to encourage you so theres really no need to get into it if it turns out that you don't need any pep talks.

It’s really hard these days, rent is so high and to find a place in a safe area is important and if you have a pet they can be hard to find that will accept them.

You would not have fitted in that place.It was fine for your smaller sibling,but you need somewhere appropriate to your being the bigger brother.

@pedrohedgerow not exactly my brother already has roommates he moved with I am looking for a 1bed 1 bath kinda deal
@Nolovehere So your needs are different. Single dwellings are a little harder to find than roommate situations nowadays.

@bijouxbroussard I see plenty of listings for them it’s nonsense

Don’t be jealous of your brother be happy for him, maybe you should look at shared accommodations to
Monanorth · 36-40, F
Why not ?@Nolovehere
Monanorth · 36-40, F
I’m the same I do trust people but you never know if they’ll pay the bill on time or ever @Nolovehere
Nolovehere · 31-35, M
@Monanorth because you don’t know who you’ll get plus most people are dirty and don’t know how to keep their place clean and stay out of your stuff

May i ask what the specific frustration is that your having? I havent been in the market for a place to rent for quite a while. So im a bit oblivious to what its like out there right now.
Nolovehere · 31-35, M
@MrNightSky plenty of listings but no one gets back to me

If you are going be somewhere long term then you should consider house buying instead of renting

Ah that's true.. houses cost over twice what they did last year 😳@Nolovehere

@LRain I’ve made a bit of progress since this post but still not enough

Rent prices are soaring around here. I dont really need to look but I do just in case I happen to need something. Have to stick hard to my budget.

@Monday it’s everywhere I guess
I feel that 🙌 but best of luck man 🤙
