Something for Everyone at Parc Life EC

I knew that I wanted to look at Parc Life EC as soon as I heard about the location of it. It is so close to Canberra Park that it has its own entrance to it. This is an area that has already been developed into something amazing, and it just continues to get better and better with the things that are being added there on a very regular basis. The park is right next to it, so a family is able to have all of the amenities from the EC itself as well as the park right next door.

It is also within walking distance to the mall, which has most everything that a person could need. The hospital is real close too, which is a major employer in the area. There is just so much going on in this small area, and I have a feeling if someone does not get in on this now, they will definitely regret it. Continue reading

Moving into a Really Nice EC

There are so many great things about the parc life ec development. The more I find out about it, the more I know that this is where I want to be. The first thing I did was learn more about the company who is creating this masterpiece. I knew that if this was the first project, that I would probably not be as excited. However, the company is well known and has a good reputation for creating safe and amazing developments. That is all I needed to know to let my excitement gather speed as I read more about this development on its website.

There are a total of 525 different condos. The two bedroom condos go up to 775 square feet, and there are 70 of them available. The regular three bedroom units go up to 947 square feet, and there are 60 of them. Continue reading

My Parents and I Are Having a Fantastic Time in Another Country

My dad is a businessman, and we have lived in some really great places. He really surprised mom and me when he pulled up the parc life website on our computer at home and asked if we would like to live there. I immediately asked dad where it was located, and he very calmly told me that the building was located in Singapore. My mom’s mouth fell open. I thought that dad was joking. He then told us that he had learned of a job opening there within his company, and he was hoping to get the job and take me and mom there to live, too. We immediately agreed to it, and we moved just four weeks later.

I knew that it would be hard to leave my friends behind, but I also knew that it wouldn’t be permanent. Things change in life, and I knew that moving to another country is an amazing opportunity that my family could not give up. I also knew that it would be a lot of fun to go to school in another country and make a lot of new friends. Continue reading

Kansas is More Home Now Than Where I Grew Up

I never thought in a million years that we would be moving to Kansas. I was born and raised in the Northeast. When I thought of Kansas, I thought Wizard of Oz and tornadoes. What did I know? Well, not much of anything. My wife knew that this was going to be hard on me. She had lived in a couple of states before. I have not. However, I had to go where the work was. She looked for apartments for rent in Wichita KS. What she found was nothing short of perfect. It was more of a dream home than the place I grew up at.

I also never thought that I would have daily access to a 22-acre lake pretty much right outside my front door. I have always wanted to be close to an inland body of water that would not be treacherous or a threat if the weather turned bad. I have a relative who lives in a hurricane zone because he likes living close to a bay. I will choose this 22-acre lake over that any day. It is just the right size for kayaking, taking out a pontoon boat or even sailing small sailboats. Continue reading

Moving to Jackson Cut the Commute Time to Work Drastically

The place you live is important. As a kid, I didn’t care much where I lived. Home was home. As long as I had my family and some good friends, I was okay. As I got older, I liked some nicer things. I like an apartment that has grounds that are kept well. I like a nice swimming pool. I like for us to have a nice kitchen to cook our meals in. That is why when we looked at the Woodlands Apartments website, we decided to go out and take a look.

We needed a place that was within our housing budget, and we needed two bedrooms. My wife and I and our daughter needed to move to be closer to my wife’s new job. The commute was taking its toll on her. She had been driving 90 minutes each way. Moving to the Woodlands Apartments cut her commute down to less than 10 minutes. I got a transfer to the closest warehouse from our new apartment, and I am about 15 minutes away. Continue reading

My First Fact-Finding Mission and Home Purchase Was Easy

My husband and I have been talking about moving to Colorado, and one day he came home and said it was now going to become a reality if I wanted it to be a reality. He said that his boss thought he would be a perfect fit at their Denver branch if he was interested in it. Boy, were we ever interested! So, my husband sent me on a fact-finding mission by flying me out to meet up with a realtor in Denver so that she could show me what types of places were available. I was so excited, yet very nervous as well. I usually have my husband with me when I do important things like that, and I hoped that I could handle it all myself.

When I married my guy, he already had a house. I had been living in an apartment for 10 years prior to meeting him. So I had absolutely zero experience when it came to purchasing any type of property. But he gave me a few tips here and there before I left. And I also checked out a couple of websites to learn a bit, too. Continue reading
