Up until recently, I had been living with a roommate for about three years. It was been tough because the person I was living with is somewhat problematic, and the place where we lived together is her own home. Two weeks ago, she decided she no longer wanted a roommate and told me that I had 24 hours to move out. Panicked, I called friends and asked where I should look for a place to live. They named several places, including Alicante where two of them personally live now.
I had a hard time believing that I would be so lucky as to find a complex that would let me move in right away after being approved. But I also knew that I needed to get a move on and start making calls to some of the places that I was told about.
I have two small dogs, so I needed to make sure that the place I move into would allow dogs. For safety reasons, I wanted a place that had a gate around it. I also wanted to be assured that I could sign a flexible lease in case it was a place that I ended up not liking. I truly did not want to be stuck signing a lease for a year or more that I could not get out of, if necessary.
I ended up each of the other places I heard about, and Alicante was the only one that could fit all my needs on such a quick basis. They said they are fine with both of my dogs, their entire complex is gated and secure, and they even have short-term leases. The best news of all is that they said as long as my application was approved, they have two apartments that are available now, and I could move in immediately.
They approved me quickly, and I’m already in my new place. I love it. It’s affordable, peaceful, and no more crazy roommate! My new apartment is even nicer than the place I lived in previously.
