We have moved. A lot. The most recent move was just a few months ago, in June. I’ve mentioned the frequent moves as being one of the hard aspects of being an Army wife. I’ve talked about the best and worst parts of moving. Remember when we had no furniture and the air mattress tried to kill us? I even admitted that I needed to have my mom come unpack boxes for me, because I just couldn’t bring myself to finish the job (p.s., there are still boxes- Mom, you’re such a slacker, geeze). Clearly I talk about it
all the freakin’ time frequently, so I’m sure you’re aware.
All this makes me consider myself well-versed in all things moving. So when Apartment Guide asked me to participate in their “Military Housing: Home Base in Any Place” Blogger Challenge, it was a perfect fit. We have used Apartment Guide in the past when looking for apartments (at the moment we live in a house we own, but they aren’t all rentals- they have real estate listings too!) and I’m psyched to promote them.
Over at Apartment Guide, there is a focus on all stages of the process, it isn’t just about finding a roof over your head. Their Moving Today site has information about how to make the most of where you are currently living, help with looking for a new place and tons of moving tips. For a military family that is always shifting from living to looking to moving (it has averaged out to one move per year for us, woah!), resources like Moving Today can always be useful.
Apartment Guide is also trying to make sites you already use more helpful in your search for a new place. They have a search feature right in their Apartment Guide Facebook page, as well as a app that let’s you search with friends on Facebook. It’s already part of a site you’re likely to use anyway- awesome! And you can find Apartment Guide on Twitter (@aptguide), where you can use the hashtag #OfficeHours to get help focusing an apartment search. For those of us that are in military families, we can also @ them with the hashtag #anyplace.
Obviously I’m excited about all the great ways to use Apartment Guide. But I’m not the only one that should be excited, you should be psyched too. Apartment Guide is providing a $100 AmEx gift card to give away to one of you!
