Apartment-hopper or the pursuit of happiness?
This is a follow up to the message I had regarding the upstairs neighbor and her noise (Subj:"Starting to Regret Move...Time to Leave?").
Just wondering if anyone has had multiple incidents of dissatisfaction or unhappiness at more than one place and moved out to seek greener pastures?
I ask because my mom jokes with me that she always keeps my address in pencil because she says I move a lot. I know she's only joking and truly cares about my happiness, but I still wonder if there's such a thing as "too much moving" to different places because your dissatisfied - sorta like job-hopping is considered on a resume?
I recently got out of a lease renewal because of issues that I couldn't handle: 1)uncontrollable roach infestations in the building, 2) consistent outlet short circuits (kept causing the fridge to cut off). This place was a high-rise building condo owned by a nice couple, but they had issues with the building management and told me they "wouldn't twist my arm to stay" when I told them of the issues I was having. They also hinted at selling the place and we eventually worked out applying the security deposit to the last month's rent.
With that experience in mind, I purposely signed a month-to-month lease to prevent breaking a lease where I'm at now(renting a room in another condo). Two months later, I'm now uneasy about my current situation - a very hostile upstairs neighbor and overall difficulty adapting to living with a roommate. I'm the first person to understand that no place is perfect and the cost of moving (even just my studio sized stuff) is not fun. I stayed at a previous apartments for two years and one year, respectively. But has anyone else had the gut feeling after just a couple of months that a place is not where you want to be and have you moved out (if you were able to)?
