A new report released by the Colorado Division of Housing has found that the average monthly rent for apartments in Colorado Springs has gone up by 5%. Right now that rent hovers around $759 whereas the average highest rent is closer to $840. This is a perfect example of how the law of supply and demand works when it comes to real estate. Because so many former homeowners are having trouble paying their mortgages they decided to move into apartments. And with fragile home sale prices those folks who’ve been saving up to buy their first home are finding it a lot more affordable to stay put in their apartments. All of this means that there are far fewer apartments then residents who need them. Thus when the supply goes down and the demand goes up so does the price.
You might even find yourself in a situation where moving from one apartment to a cheaper apartment is a better solution to help save money. It could be that you’re going from a two-bedroom to one bedroom or open loft space. If that is the case then you definitely want to give a consideration to downsizing when it comes to everything you own. Simply put, this means you shouldn’t be bringing your old junk to your new apartment.
Many folks think that the best way to get rid of the junk it to simply have a yard sale a week or two before the move. While this is a good idea especially if you can make some money from stuff that you’re going to throw out, what happens with all the stuff that doesn’t get sold? You’ll be forced to haul it back into your apartment and pack it up or leave it on your yard and hope someone will grab it. That’s not a very nice way to say goodbye to your neighborhood. A better solution is to schedule a junk removal day with Junk King Colorado before you’re moving day.
Although this might seem like you’re adding a step to what is already a hectic time you’re actually going to receive a huge benefit once the move is accomplished. Instead of having to fill up your limited closet space with unwanted junk you can say goodbye to it once and for all. If you’re still set on the idea of a yard sale why not schedule a junk hauling team to show up at the end of the day? That way they can haul away whatever is leftover and you won’t have to lift a finger.
Embracing the concept of a junk moving day will also help you pack up all your belongings that you will be taking with you without the clutter. This means less boxes and ultimately less time for the move. And don’t think it’s just junk that should be hauled away but also those unwanted pieces of furniture or kitchen appliances. If you leave those behind you might be putting your security deposit at risk if your landlord is forced to hire a crew to take them away. You moved into an empty space and that’s just how you should be moving out!
