    Le sigh, so the time has come for me to move out. I was never planning to stay at my current place till after the new year so I'm now on the hunt for a new place. I have so far found two places with a roommate but I'm stuck on what to choose.....


    Option 1 is a recently remodeled modern apartment near the North Beach section of Miami Beach. We would be the first tenants. It is a beautiful, charming garden style apartment but is just over my price range. I did the math and I would barely have enough to get by when all is said and done.


    Option 2 is an apartment in the Design District of Miami. If anybody knows that area it is a "gentrifying" part of Miami aka they be kicking out all the black folks out. The apartments themselves are decent, but have all the charm of an STD. BUTTTTTT I would be just under budget and have enough money extra to spend around (mainly on drugs and hookers)...

    So what should I do? I have until December 1st to decide. My roommate doesn't really care either wait just FYI.


    Please random strangers on the internet....tell me how to live my life!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Option 2. You can't go wrong with extra money for drugs and hookers.

    Why are you moving bitches? That sounds like no fun. You should move men. Or mountains. Or something.

    Option 1!!!! For my first apartment I went with the nicer and more expensive apartment...and I never regretted it! Your home is where you will be most of the time, might as well make it as nice as possible...also with the economy the way it is right now see if you can get the rent down a hundred bucks...worked for me also..

    GOOD LUCK

    RadRTT has a point. I used to be a building manager. Rents are often far more negotiable than a landlord will let on. Partly depends on how long the particular unit has been shown at the asking price. But it never hurts to make an offer, especially if you have a good credit history and rental references.

    I'm leaning towards option 2. I'm tired of being po'!!!!!!!!I figured that I can really make the place mine with the money I will be saving by buying some nice artwork and furniture. And the apartments aren't bad, just across the street is the ghetto. I don't want tricks to be scared away!!!! (half way serious)


    But I would be saving a few hundred dollars by going with option 2. It leaves me enough money to finally enjoy Miami and maybe even save enough to go on a trip next year!!! (Israel anyone???)

    I tried already, he said HELL NAW!!!!

    It is a real nice apt tho. So I doubt he would since even I think it was a bargain. But it was still above my price range. And this didn't include electricity and internet/cable. I figured that is at least another $100 or so a month. Lawd knows I need my Real Housewives and Real Jock!!!

    Number 2 for sure. Yes you will spend more time at home, but it doesnt need to be nice, you can make it nice.

    Financially speaking, however, you will feel much healthier and less stressed about money with option 2. Your quality of life will go up.

    Plus who needs a nice place when you got drugs right?
