So it starts.
I settled with the building owners the relocation payment I am due once I move out of here. And the fact that I can use part of it when I need a security deposit and what not.
I also reviewed my credit report which is… Well, it exists. There’s nothing bad on it which is a good thing.
With all of that done, I started looking at places in Downtown LA for around $2,000. One thing that been driving me nuts is getting distract by looking at places in other neighborhoods. Like, oooh, wow, wouldn’t it be nice to have this view of the ocean down in San Pedro?
But no, no, no! Must focus on DTLA!
So today, was the start of looking at places. I went to two different buildings around where the Standard Hotel is and saw five different units. I liked one unit from each building but neither were perfect.
View from the entrance
Looking towards the sleeping area
Pros: Simple rectangular layout. Good water pressure.
Cons: Second floor (aka lots of street noise). Didn’t feel as big as I was expecting. Shitty closets.
Looking in from the entrance
Pros: Perfect size. Sixth floor so it’s not too noisy. The rooftop pool and lounge areas were really nice.
Cons: Water pressure sucked. I don’t know if the water was turned off, but that was a concern. Also the washer/dryer unit wasn’t hooked up. And as I was leaving I heard a child crying.
So this was the first set of viewings. I have viewings scheduled for Friday, Sunday and Tuesday. I’m looking forward to getting this part taken care of so I can just start purging and selling shit.
I’m going to get palpitations.
