The Leasing Office

I was sitting here looking at apartments on rent.com and I began to notice a common theme. At least 75% of the properties that had a post on rent.com had like 1 picture of an apartment and then 40 pictures of the leasing office. What the hell is wrong with these people. Dont get me wrong, a nice leasing office is nice, but I dont plan on moving in to it. If you are reading this and you work for an apatment management company and you happen to be the person that posts the pictures onto rent.com, throw me a freakin bone here and try posting some pictures of the actual living space. That would be great.

You have a few options:

a) Get off your lazy ass and go look at the actual apartments.

b) Create your own apartment locator website, that way you get to take your own pictures. ( Not gonna happen if you can't do (a) )

c) Pay me $100 to find you an apartment.

Personally, if I were you, I would choose (c)

Wow action, you are so right. I should "get off [my] lazy ass and go look at the actual apartments." Oh wait, the apartments that I'm reviewing are 1500 miles away in the District of Columbia. So I will choose option (d) call every leasing office of each apartment I would like to view and tell them to email me pictures of the unit or send me a brochure. If they give me lip, I will ask to speak with their manager, and if the manager gives me lip I will ask to speak with the owner of the complex. In conclusion, I agree with Mike in his argument that rent.com needs to quit screwing around and post pictures of their units…and yes, I am bitter about a past experience.

mote, it is people like you who have made this world a far worse place. The internet has made you lazy. You expect everything to be handed to you on a silver platter. You don't want to work for anything anymore.

Shit, why doesn't the leasing agent just offer live online tours of each of their available units to whomever requests it? And while they are at it, they can go out and buy the same furniture that you have and decorate the place, just to make sure your stuff will fit.

You are probably so lazy you don't even go into work anymore. You just log in to work in the morning through your VPN, check your email, create some reports, watch the latest DIVX movie you downloaded, order some food at pizzahut.com, use your VONAGE phone to place some work calls, watch the TV in your living room through your computer using Windows Media Center, watch a virtual sex video, go to sleep, and then rinse and repeat.

Get off your ass!

Action,

Since I haven’t the faintest clue about “Vonage” and I truly had no idea you could watch “TV…through your computer using Windows Media Center,” I can only conclude that these are aspects of your daily life. In response to your ad hominem attack, I must point out the flaws in your argument. First, it was not I who offered the online viewing of apartments. If the participating apartments want to attract customers, then they must provide proper publication of their units. This was my argument. Your argument consisted of nothing more than a weak red herring that completely averted from any logical reasoning that would have been a response to my argument. As an example, you commented that “they can go out and buy the same furniture that you have and decorate the place.” What is the correlation between my furniture and the fact that apartments are not taking photos of their units? This brings me to my second argument: Is it not the point of rent.com for apartments to advertise their units to potential customers? Since you are trying to make the argument that I am lazy, allow me to counter argue that you are illiterate because my first comment specifically stated that I’m “reviewing [apartments] that are 1500 miles away.” Once again my Ivy League friend, isn’t rent.com claiming to offer a service for busy individuals who would like to view potential apartments in another city? So let me sum this up…I live 1500 miles away from potential apartments, rent.com is offering a service that allows me to view these potential apartments via internet, some participating apartments are not including pictures of the available units, and you say that because of this I am lazy and they should go out and buy my furniture. Wow Action, that is an amazing argument. A+.

I also didn’t know they made virtual sex videos…I hope you realize that most people don’t know about virtual sex videos, which is ultimately incriminating for you.

spoodles, stop wasting your time with rent.com (ebay should stick to auctions).

go with www.apartmentmatching.com

you fill out a survey where you rank you select/rank your preferences (area of town, price range, amenities), then the website ranks the results and tells you where you would like to live. you also get great photos, 360 degree videos, floor plans, maps, etc. -- but unfortunately for mote, it only services the dallas area.

i'm still looking for places in boulder (from japan) and i haven't found an apartment locating website that even comes close to the quality of apartmentmatching.com

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.

Hi Mikey-D,
Your blog is wonderful, although The Leasing Office isn't exactly what I was looking for: apartment listing, but I like the topic and how you wrote it. I am more interested in apartment listing, but during my search for more information I discovered The Leasing Office, certainly one of the finest blogs I have seen lately!
