Getting Evicted Was a Great Thing

I knew that I did not have a lot of time to find a nice apartment to live at. My landlord had told me that I only had until the end of summer, which was just six weeks away at the time, to find a new place as his daughter and her family were going to move into the house I had been renting for four years. I could not find a house that I was happy with, so I did a search for Silver Spring Maryland apartments. I had never lived in an apartment before, so I was not sure what I was getting myself into.

As it turns out, I was making the best decision of my life. I liked the apartments at Ashford at Woodlake after seeing pictures of both the apartment interiors as well as the grounds. I looked at the floor plans too to make sure that it was something I would like, and it was perfect for me. I needed just one bedroom, and the rent I am paying on it now is less than what I was paying for the house I was living in.

I have only had to do that twice, and both were for minor things. The maintenance department showed up right away both times though. I have had to wait for weeks when I had something wrong at the house that I had lived in. I also get to use the swimming pool and fitness center here at no additional charge. It is just better all the way around for me here, so getting kicked out of my house actually turned out to be a good thing.
