You’ve decided you want to rent an apartment with a friend. You already know you get along well. You’ve downloaded your roommate agreement and have a plan for how all the details are going to work. Now you’re running all around Calgary looking at apartments (probably based on price point alone) and are totally overwhelmed and confused.
So stop. Pick a neighbourhood you both love. And then narrow your search to find something you both like there. Why?
Because living with someone – even with a perfect roommate – will lead to interpersonal stress and conflict at times. When you’re situated in a great neighbourhood, you’ve got lots of options on where to go and what you can do when you need a break.
So what makes some neighbourhoods more appealing than others? Sure some people will say proximity to work. But really, it’s what’s close to home that matters.
Look for a neighbourhood with groceries close by. A neighbourhood with easy access to places you like to go. Great restaurants and coffee options are high up there. Add some green space and a bit of shopping. And you’ve got a winner.
