So here's how our actual place compares to what we originally wanted



-2BR, 2BA

YES

-Fitness center (on-site! Treadmills required!)

no - but there is one next door that we can use for free since as our friend owns it

-Pool (preferably roof-top)

no

-Jacuzzi (w/ a “no freaks allowed” rule)

no

-Fireplace (for those cold winter nights)

no

-Dog Park (w/ automatic dog poo removal! Haha! I’m kidding!)

um, no

-Washer/Dryer in unit (A MUST MUST MUST, we are DIRTY KIDS!)

YES!

-Dishwasher, Refrigerator, Stove (I know, we are such snobs!)

YES!

-Cool islandy-thingie in the kitchen (you know)

YES!

-Walk-in closets (one closet for just my shoes alone! No! Yes!)

KIND OF!

-Hardwood floors (two French bulldogs with vomit issues, hello)

YES!

-Vaulted ceilings with a huge wall for our upcoming giant flat screen TV (negotiable)

YES!

-Custom Mouldings (whoa! I’m just kidding! I don’t even know what that means)

I DONT THINK SO?

-Close promimity to the Metro Red Line

YES!

-And so on

We are across the street from the Staples Center/LA Live, next door to a friend of ours, a few blocks from one of my BFFs, and within two miles of another good friend of mine. YAY! Also, there is a wine bar less than a block away. OH yes.

I don't know why people like to say "custom" moldings. I guess to make the lesser educated think they're getting something special and pay more. If you haven't already got it, I'd install some chair rail in certain rooms like the dining area and maybe the master bedroom. Definitely do a nice crown molding in as many rooms as you can, as well as a nice tall base. With those hardwood floors, you'll be thankful come resale time.
