See Why a New York Apartment Has Cheese Boards in the Bathroom — House Call

Name: Laura Merle
Location: West Village — New York, New York
Size: Around 500 square feet
Years lived in: 3 years, renting

I love my apartment. It’s old. It’s a bit run-down. And it has almost all the New York charm you can possibly hope for (I sadly don’t have a fireplace…). I rented the place on a bit of a whim: A bad day at work meant that I was procrastinating online and found a listing for a two-bedroom place in the West Village for a not insane amount. “Obviously fake. Or gone,” I thought, but rather than emailing the agent I called him and to my surprise the apartment was not only still available, but had just been dropped a couple hundred below the listed price. I enlisted a friend to go check it out that evening, “Because if he wants to kill us, at least there’ll be two of us to fight him off.”

Modern Farmhouse Meets California Cool — House Call

Location: Castro Valley, California
Size: 1,400 square feet
Years lived in: 10 months, renting

We live in a cottage-style home. When we first saw the listing for rent I got a feeling that it was the house for our family. I fell in love with the big windows in the dining room, the hardwood floors, and overall it felt like a little home to us. My husband and I are both Peruvian, born and raised and have been together since high school (almost 15 years). We have two boys and very recently we welcomed our little girl. My husband is a mechanical engineer and I own a small online shop called Rebecca and Genevieve.
