It’s a bummer for my roommate and I, because we are so close to the end of our lease
My friend and I share a two bedroom apartment in Denver, Colorado. It’s about five miles away from my job, but I can get there very easily using the metro station. My roommate works even closer to the apartment. He sells marijuana at a dispensary. Legal weed is another great reason to live in Colorado! I’ve lived in Colorado most of my life, but both of us recently moved to Denver. The rates for a Denver apartment can be extremely high. My friend and I pay $2,200 for a two-bedroom apartment. The apartment community has a few amenities like a swimming pool, sauna, game room, and fitness center. Last month the owner of the apartment building updated all of the HVAC systems. My roommate and I were inconvenienced for the day while the Denver HVAC company installed the new equipment. The new heating and AC equipment works much better and the apartment smells cleaner and fresher. When I came home from work yesterday, there was a note on the door from the apartment manager. When my roommate and I renew our lease next month, our rental rate is going up. The place wants to charge more money now that they updated the HVAC units. It’s a bummer for my roommate and I, because we are so close to the end of our lease. Other people have longer leases and they won’t have to pay the increased rates until many months from now. I’m not looking forward to paying the increased rates, but I don’t want to give up the location and look for something else.
