With the aid of a colorful group of friends, Blu sets out on an adventure to escape from an evil Cockatoo, Nigel, and his fumbling, bird-smuggling owner.

The viewing will be at 7pm on Friday, September 23rd at the Resident Activity Center. All children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Popcorn and sugar-free Kool-Aid® will be provided while supplies last.

Why Rent?

Posted: August 31st, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

As the demand for apartment homes rises, this survey was conducted of current renters to find out why they choose to rent. The results of the survey reveal that maintenance free living, cost and flexibility are the most common reasons to rent!

The largest number of respondents (43.7%) rent primarily for the maintenance free living in apartments. Many respondents have a strong desire for the convenience of a maintenance person available for common household repairs as well as the freedom of not needing to tend to a lawn, garden or landscaping.

More than 23% of renters choose to rent for financial reasons. If an individual plans to live in one place for less than five years, it may make the most financial sense to rent. The costs of buying and selling a home can total 10 percent or more of the price of the home. Additionally, home ownership in a desired neighborhood may be much more expensive than renting in the same neighborhood.

Renting also affords individuals the freedom to invest in a variety of stocks, bonds and mutual funds that can provide a higher return on investment as opposed to property ownership. The average home value increases only five percent each year, whereas the average stock value increases seven percent and bond value increases eight percent each year.

19% of respondents indicate that relocation flexibility and the lack of a long term commitment in an apartment is the primary reason they choose to rent.

Renting an apartment in Charleston, SC may be a good choice for the following types of individuals:

  • Young adults just beginning their careers.
  • Single parents who do not have time for maintenance .
  • Empty nesters who want to travel.
  • Anyone tired of long commutes to work.
  • Anyone who wants abundant amenities and social activities where they live.
  • Professionals who transfer often.
