Are you looking to move?
2020 has been an absolutely crazy year, and I feel like more than ever people are making changes, forming new habits, and prioritizing things differently in their life. I know I am.
For example, I live in NYC – one of the most amazing, but also one of the most expensive cities in the US. In addition, indoor dining, clubs, bars, and so much more are all still closed (in comparison with some other locals throughout the country). When part of your job is live-performing, singing, and DJing, this definitely changes the perspective for your everyday life.
I decided September 1st to move out of my apartment, and look for my next big adventure. I also realized that I don’t necessarily need to be in NYC currently. I could explore other cities and take advantage of this ‘new normal’ by experiencing a city that I never would have (most likely) otherwise.
I started thinking of possibilities…. Tampa, Dallas, Chicago? All phenomenal cities with something special and unique to offer.
As I was researching and googling, I came across some pretty cool tools that I wanted to share with all of you in case you were in the same boat and thinking some of the same things I have been.
First, I found this amazing site called Zumper.
I know what you are thinking…
What the heck is Zumper? It’s actually pretty awesome and helpful. Zumper is used by millions of renters to find houses, rooms, condos, or apartments for rent.
I saw that they have a function where you can even apply for apartments online, submit digital rental applications and credit reports with Zumper’s screening service, and the best part is… it’s all SAFE and powered by a trustworthy company, TransUnion™ – so your personal information is in good hands. 🙂
Their inventory is updated in real-time, so you’ll always see new rentals on Zumper first. In a big city (with a lot of demand), like Chicago, this is SO important because listings and availability can change so quickly.
You can also filter by location, price range, bedroom count, pet-friendly spots, or amenities; and set an alert to get notifications when a new listing is posted.
I’m not sure where I’ll end up, but I’m excited for this next chapter, and I hope you are too! Hopefully this insight will help you find your PERFECT home!
