While looking on a Craigslist Asheville apartments listing, I found something that was quite uncommon. One of the listings advertised an apartment that looked like a condo, but had the price of a small single apartment. I thought it was some kind of scam to get money from people and lock them into a lease that they couldn’t leave. I contacted the person who placed the listing and asked them if I could come take a look at the place before committing to living there. The person agreed and I drove over to the apartment.
The picture on the listing was accurate and it stunned me. I couldn’t believe that the apartment was as big as a condo, and the person was only asking for such a low price. There had to be some kind of catch that I was missing, but I couldn’t figure out what it was. I asked the person what kind of strings were attached to the apartment, and he told me there were none. We did some more discussion and I agreed to live in the apartment. I didn’t even need to haggle the price down any lower, because it was low enough for me.
When I moved into the apartment, I was so tired from all of the work that I went to sleep. Once I woke up, it was the middle of the night and I was hungry, so I hopped into my car and drove around to find something to eat. There was a 24 hour diner open that looked like it had some good food, so I went there. I ordered a large stack of pancakes with sausage and eggs. After eating, I drove around some more to see what other stores and restaurants were in the area. There were a lot of good things to explore.
