About

“When you are ready to move out on your own, MyFirstApartment.com tells you step-by-step how to make it happen.”

Since 2006, we have blogged about everything “first apartment”, from lease negotiations to interior decorating advice, from cooking tips to dealing with problem roommates, from medicine cabinet must-haves to negotiating a deal on your first mattress, always with special emphasis on smart money management.

Our team of bloggers covers the first apartment experience across the USA, with primary focus on the major metros (New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles) that are the magnet destinations for new graduates.

As a sign of the quality of our content, many universities around the country (NYU, Columbia, University of Texas and Kent State, among others) link to MyFirstApartment.com as a recommended site on their housing websites.
