Learn to LOVE Living Alone!

Living alone for the first time, whether by choice or circumstance, is huge milestone. However, this huge change may lead to feelings of anxiety, confusion or loneliness. If you have found yourself questioning how to adjust to living alone for the first time, or have been nervous to take the plunge, let us help you!

Prepare: Budget

Having anxiety about money is not uncommon, especially if you will be living alone for the first time. Start with a budget that you are comfortable with to help put your mind at ease. Feel free to browse our property listings online to find an apartment that best suits your budget here. We also have a “My First Apartment” budget worksheet that can help you get organized. Ask a Customer Care Coordinator for more details (you can find their contact information here), or find the template here!  We are always willing and able to help you prepare for your first time living alone.

Move In: Make the Place Your Own

Having a disconnect between yourself and your apartment may be why you do not immediately feel at home. Make your place your own and consider your personal style and how you can relay it to your home décor. Paint the walls, put up artwork – become a part-time interior designer in your own home. Adding your own style to your apartment will help you to connect to your space, and you will most likely feel more comfortable. For some design inspiration, click here.

Adjust: Consider a Furry Friend

Do you still find that you are lonely in your apartment? Consider a furry friend! If you have been a previous pet owner, or know that you can handle this lifestyle, this option may be good for you! At CLV Group, we are 100% pet friendly, and welcome furry friends into your home. Having a pet will not only keep you company on a daily basis, but will also encourage you to do activities you may not have done before, such as going on walks around the community.
