How did you end up where you’re living right now? What factors will help you choose the next place you live?

I currently live in a small town about 5 minutes from my workplace. I picked this place because I wanted to live close to work since I have to be at work early in the morning. I found this apartment by going to various online apartment finders and putting in a search for places close to where I work that also offered the features I was looking for. Here are some of the things I wanted in my home:
-two bedrooms
-two bathrooms
-second floor apartment
-walk in closet (not those sideways closets)
-close to work
-reasonable price
-good neighborhood

I ended up getting an apartment that was very close to work but did not have a balcony. I did get my two bedrooms and two bathrooms so I was able to live without the balcony as I have the additional space on the inside.

The price was comparable to other apartments in the area so I just ended up picking the nicest looking place. I could have gotten an even bigger apartment for the same price about 30 minutes away but that would mean I would have to get on the highway every day and I do not like having a long commute.

I would use basically the same criteria for my next place although I am hoping that the next time I move it will be into a house/condo and not an apartment.
