Things Apartment Tenants Should Know About Being a Good Neighbor

January 23, 2015 · Posted in ,


If you talk to a group of apartment renters, you will find that many love their living situation because they do not have to worry about the expenses and responsibilities that come with owning a house. Rather than having to deal with property taxes and maintenance expenses, all they have to do is pay the rent on time.

However if you continue the conversation, you will find out that there is also a potential downfall to living in an apartment, your neighbor. Unlike living in a house where your neighbors are usually next door or across the street, apartments tend to put a larger number of people in a much smaller space. The results can be frustrating if the neighbors do not respect each other's space.

Below you will find a list of unwritten rules to living in an apartment with other people. Some of these may appear in your lease, but many of them have come up over time in response to other people's struggles.

How to Build Your $1000 Emergency Savings Fund

January 15, 2015 · Posted in ,


Have you ever had your car break down and had no money to pay for the repairs? Has your plumbing backed up and damaged your home just after you spent the last dollar in your paycheck? Have you gone to the emergency room without knowing how you are going to have enough money to cover your co-pay expenses after your insurance kicks in?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then you know there are times when people need money that they may not necessarily have. On top of that, emergencies usually happen without giving people any prior notice which makes borrowing money difficult. During times like these, an emergency fund can not only save your finances but it can also help maintain your sanity.

But what exactly is an emergency fund? Just as its name suggests, an emergency fund is a savings account set up to cover unexpected life emergencies. In the absence of the fund, it is possible that you would either incur more debt or not be able to pay the expense at all. Usually an emergency fund is loose enough so that you can withdraw money without penalty, but hard enough to access that you do not feel tempted to withdraw money on a whim.

With that being said, here are some steps to assist you in creating a basic $1000 emergency fund.
