Re: Situation arizes
I’ve lived in subsidized housing before. The main thing is price,
but it sounds like that isn’t much of a difference for you.
Being in town, you won’t use as much gas going back and forth.
You’ll still have utilities, but they are -usually- lower in
apartment buildings because you share walls (which effects heat).
Trash is usually included, as is water, so if you pay either of
those bills now, that’s a savings.
Gas is a savings to and from places. Also, being in town, you might
be within walking distance to some places.
As for your son, they might be a bit lenient, but they do have to
keep to the same rules with loudnes as other tennents. If your
neighbor was blasting the radio, they’d get in trouble if people
complain- same with the loudness coming from your son.
For moving in, it’s normal getting a deposit before handing a key
over, but ask them for a tour before signing a lease or placing a
deposit. Tell them you need to make sure it’s got enough room for
I don’t know the cost difference between propane and central heating
is, but again, you’ll be sharing walls, and if your trailer is older
than 10 years old, chances are, you are losing heat through bad
insulation, which can raise the cost. Apartments tend to be better
kept up, plus you have maitnence covered if anything breaks down.
Sharing walls means you have at least one side of the apartment that
is not facing outside, so it won’t be losing as much heat, if that
makes sense? Basically, a shared wall means a warmer home, and
slightly lower costs.
If you choose to remain in your trailer, would it be possible to
hire someone to do the lawn cheaply? A relative or neighbor?
