Check out these Amenities that Drive Up Rent

While you’re apartment hunting it is important to know that there are key factors that may raise the price of your monthly rent. Here the scoop—

1. Living near an interstate

If living near the interstate or a highway is important to you, then the added cost of having an apartment a mile or so away from one may drive the cost of your rent up.

2. Elevator

The convenience of having an elevator in your building can still be pretty costly. On average, Priceonomics estimates that an elevator will add $120 to your monthly rent.

3. Fitness center

Priceonomics’ study shows that people pay an average of $90 a month for a fitness center, so if working out in your own building isn’t all that important to you, consider spending your money elsewhere.

4. Laundry in building

How to Negotiate with your Neighbor without the headache

Having to bring up a discrepancy with your neighbor is NEVER fun, but it doesn’t have to end in a screaming match. If you find yourself to be a type A personality, there are ways to get your way AND make everyone else happy. Here’s how –

Upon moving in/ New neighbors moving in

Make sure you have the conversations that mean the most. If you are a person that has to be up and out of the house by 6AM, communicate that with your neighbor without blunting asking them to stop all noise by 9PM. Subtly dropping hints, allows people to think that its their idea to be quiet rather than being told to do so.

Call them before calling the cops – or landlord

No body likes a snitch. If something is REALLY bothering you, make sure to take it to your neighbor first. And if things are truly out of hand, at least you’ve warned them multiple times.

Create an open line of communication

If they have something that they are upset about that you’re doing – make sure to address the situation. Knowing that you are doing all that you can to make their life easier makes it easier for them to respect your wishes. nothing is worse than a one sided relationship.

How to be a Good Neighbor – Without the Inconvenience

Sometimes being a good neighbor can be extremely inconvenient – but it doesn’t have to be! Here are some simple tips to making your neighbor’s life easier and not having to get that dreaded knock on your door —

Keep it down!

You like to play music, have people over or even have a dog that might be a little overactive. But there are simple solutions to these everyday problems. Once you put your music on, step outside to see how if you can hear it if you were to walk down your hallway and then adjust accordingly.
Give your neighbors a heads up that friends will be over and to text you if things get a little loud.
Take your dog for walks throughout the day to keep them from pent up energy that turns into barking at late hours.

The hallway is not an extension of your apartment.

Try not to loiter in the halls, you have an ENTIRE apartment to lounge around in. Why else are you paying rent?
If you need extra storage, try putting it on your back patio or hanging it in the front of your apartment or inside – rather than clogging up the hallway.

Catch The Dark Crystal at the World Theatre Tonight!

The Dark Crystal – PG – The World Theatre

Saturday, June 10th, 2017 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Jen (Stephen Garlick), raised by the noble race called the Mystics, has been told that he is the last survivor of his own race, the Gelflings. He sets out to try to find a shard of the dark crystal, a powerful gem that once provided balance to the universe. After the crystal was broken, the evil Skeksis used sinister means to gain control. Jen believes that he can repair the dark crystal and bring peace back to the world, if he can only find the remaining shard.

Ann Matzke: Dix and Henri
Wednesday, July 26 • 2:00 p.m.
Author Ann Matzke, who specializes in writing for children and young adults, was the Library Media Specialist for Shelton, North Platte, and Gothenburg Public Schools from 2004 to 2010, and Children’s Director of the Wilson Public Library in Cozad from 2011 to 2015. While in Cozad, she began researching the lives of artists Robert Henri and Eulabee Dix, producing a book on Henri, with another currently in progress on Dix. Her research led her to New York City where both artists knew each other socially and professionally. Dix was the subject of two full-length portraits painted by Henri with one, Portrait of Miss Eulabee Dix (Becker) in Wedding Gown, on display at MONA. During her presentation, the author will share biographical information discovered during her research, and explain the manuscript writing process.
