Apartment Guide

Debi Marie meets Apartment Guide’s partner Kim Myles, ‘Design Star’ winner and design and style expert. Kim tells Debi about benefits of living in a rental apartment or condo, and giving the space your personal touch, and still be “landlord friendly”. Kim and Debi visit one apartment where they look at committing to a décor and style.
A key point; you don’t need big budget to make a big impact. Kim goes through a list of her top ten décor and design tips that are budget-friendly, easy to implement and, for renters, landlord-approved. Also, tips on finding the right apartment that suits you and your family’s lifestyle.

Move to the Right Space

Move to the Right SpaceLike many Americans, you may find yourself in the position to rent instead of own your next home. You are not alone -- the number of renters surged by 5.1 million during the 2000’s.*

While there are many contributing factors to the rental market expansion, one of the primary reasons is the declining housing market and increased economic stresses on American families, causing foreclosure rates to skyrocket.

Whether you’re navigating the rental market for the first time , or are a pro at renting, Apartment Guide, a division of PRIMEDIA, Inc. will provide you the tools and services to help your family locate your next home through a variety of mobile and social platforms.

Apartment Guide’s content rich website makes it easy to find the apartment you are looking for, while YOU pocket the money you would pay in commission to a realtor!

Even in difficult financial times, Apartment Guide helps families navigate through the next chapter of their lives and position residents to rebuild their “financial house.”
