Weylie Moves to Los Angeles | Apartment Hunting | ilikeweylie


It’s really starting to feel more and more official Hello everybody. Welcome back to your girl’s channel. So I wanted to start the short series on my channel called “Weylie Moves to Los Angeles” to document my journey of moving to LA from San Francisco! About a week and a half ago Wah and I announced on WahlieTV about our move, why are we moving, when we’re moving and the moving plans I guess so I’ll link that video right over here so you guys can check that out that way I’m not repeating information for those of you who haven’t seen that video already. When we first posted that video a lot of you were like please do moving vlogs and of course we are so make sure to subscribe to wahlie TV if you guys want to stay updated on all the little details but here on my channel for the short series way we moved to Los Angeles I wanted it to be more about giving you guys my tips on moving [if] you’re new to apartment hunting there are quite a few websites that you can go on to find apartment listings a few that I like is trulia.com redfin.com apartment finders hotpads apartments.com and also craigslist with craigslist you have to use your better judgment because there are a lot of scammers so girl be careful if you are doing a local move you can also check out your local newspaper for listings there are lots of resources you just got to go out there and keep your options open and really look hard [i] like to make a list of the places that I’m interested in and once you have that down go ahead and send them an email or give them a call to schedule a tour Hi I’m yeah I was just calling to schedule a tour for next week sure what [stand] are [you] want to do 10am [ok] sounds good [alright] [i] have you [dad] [ok] awesome thank you so much [thank] I write for this trip we went between October 18 and october 21st so it was just a short [i] believe four days three nights we decided to make a road trip down to Southern California because we live here in Northern California and it’s only little bit under 400 miles it’s not terribly far but it is a long drive which actually I feel like road trips are really fun so if you can a road trip [i] would definitely recommend it we go to LA around 2pm on the 18 and I scheduled an appointment at 3.30 to take a look at apartments because I did not want to waste any time I knew our time was limited and I had about four places I wanted to check out so the first place I looked at is a two-story loft which I was super super excited about because my best friend Sophie lives in the same building and I mean honestly what’s better than living the same building as your best friend one thing I learned about apartment hunting over the years is that you will never find the perfect rental unless you are purchasing a home and you can renovate it and make it exactly what you want chances are you’re not going to get every single thing on your wish list just keep your options open and know that you’re not going to get be perfect unit but you can get close to it if you look hard enough so my first impression when I walked into this Loft is that the ceilings are high but [I] get to the kitchen and [no] the kitchen as you can see is just a small little hallway [not] a lot of light gets into the kitchen because it is tucked in but I told myself to just keep my options open because at least everything else about the loft is feeling good so far [so] [I] continue to make my way around the loft I thought it was pretty cool that is like a circle so you can make it full circle around the first floor of the apartment had large closet [i] really like that and also had a pretty large bathroom it doesn’t feel big because the bathroom is like a long shape [vs] like a big rectangle but overall it’s quite a lot of space and get my shower a toilet my sink and I also have washer and dryer in there which was up + anyways I [make] my way upstairs I was super excited for this part because I really wanted open-concept two-story type of loft and this one had it [i] was really excited until I saw the carpet [I] don’t like carpet overall I was pretty happy with the unit [i] kept in the back of my mind I wasn’t rushing to sign the lease right then and there because my experience with finding apartments is that chances are the unit is not going to get snatched off the market right away check out other places first but just let the leasing agent know that I am interested in this and if someone does put an application can you please let me know [homegirl] was really not trying to waste any time because [i] took another tour that day although we were pretty tired after the seven-hour [Drive] this one I was pretty happy about out of all the listings [i] looked at this one had brick walls yes girl it was really really beautiful the unit itself was about a thousand square feet I believe it was huge had a white kitchen [i] love a white kitchen and it’s just a very very open space it’s not two stories it is just one story all across [i] really like the bathroom the bathroom was very very [Vegas] bathroom like something you would find in caesars palace or something is very [boo] [she] had marble everywhere [i] did like it but I feel like after time I would probably hate it because it was just really really like grand. this particular unit had a lot of natural light and sunlight makes me [separate] that’s all the apartments I toured for that day because it was ready approaching around six o’clock and that’s when the office is closed so that’s a wrap to the first day on the second day of apartment hunting I scheduled a tour with this building that I knew I didn’t really love but I wanted to keep my options open and just have a backup which leads me to another tip for you guys like [i] said in the beginning you want to keep your options open and one thing about keeping your options open is that you might not be able to be in your ideal location this place was not in my ideal location but I wanted to check it out anyways because I had most of the stuff that I wanted and the price was right [it] was really pretty though the lady took us into one of the model unit that was furnished and I loved the way they furnished it was so cute the kitchen was beautiful it didn’t get really good lighting because the ceilings are lower at this place and the windows are smaller but overall I really like the vibe of it was really really cozy [bathrooms] were beautiful I love love love the finishes it just has more of a traditional vibe to it where there’s like an actual door to the bedrooms versus the other places [i’ve] checked out which was more of an open concept so our trip is quickly coming to an end we have about two more days left and it’s time to make a decision but before made my decision I wanted to check out one more place, I personally think that it’s important to at least check out three places before you make a final decision because three just seems like you know right amount of going into this one I wasn’t super duper excited because this one was the most expensive out of all of them but I wanted to check it out anyways and turns out I found very very perfect unit I absolutely loved it was so pretty. I like to so much that I forgot to even bring out my camera because I got that excited that unit was already taken and I don’t understand why he brought me to it tease me like that but he did have the exact same floor plan just on a different floor those available so I was able to record that one to show you guys the layout at least this one is four stories down from the one that I saw and it’s just a lot darker it did not have a view which unfortunately didn’t work out in the end because I need a space that is nice and bright because I’m home all the time and just being somewhere where it’s surrounded by buildings next door will will make me feel very claustrophobic and you know a little sad because it’s not getting a lot of natural sunlight that [I] have to kick that one [my] [list] here we are on the last day of this trip and it’s time to make a final decision which I have actually made my final decision last night I just have to go sign the papers today but your new apartment hunting I guess I can kind of give you a little overview of what to expect when you apply for building is obviously different amongst like every building because they have different policies and if you’re renting from the homeowner itself they might have a different type of policy so anyways but in general usually they do a credit check most places I heard look for credit scores above 630 and after that they need your bank statement or your [paystub] just to have a proof of income to make sure that you’re not going to just not be able to pay rent and then you also have to apply for the place usually you can do it online and they usually charge anywhere between 20 to 50 dollars from what I’ve seen it yet that’s like a general rundown of it but I know some places don’t do as much of a background check and what they expect it’s just like two months rent as the deposit and that’s that but uhm yeah that’s kind of like the general process that we have to go through this time anyways as far as which one I chose I think you guys probably have an idea by now if you follow me on instagram that already spilled the beans because I got really excited for those of you who follow me on instagram you will know that I went with the two-story loft yayyyy all the units were beautiful and it was really hard to choose but in the end I chose the two-story loft because it had most of the stuff on my wish list so this concludes episode 1 of weylie moves to Los Angeles hopefully this series is going to be helpful for any of you that are looking to move or you’re currently moving I don’t know if you are congratulations I hope you have a wonderful time on your new place and yeah that will be all for this video for now and I will see you guys in my next one. Bye

This is so awesome and love the way you do your videos and story telling. This was a very helpful video for sure. How does the pets deposit work? Do you put down a huge deposit money all at once or is it a certain amount of money you have to pay each month for having pets? I am planning on moving to La in the middle of next year and I wanted to know more on how that work since I will be bringing my yorkie with me. Love you! <3

A good idea my friend gave me when I was going to be moving out of state and roadtripping out first to look for apartments, was to pack up the car with stuff I didn't need right away at my current place and put in storage, that way when it came time to move we could fit the rest of our stuff in the two cars we were bringing, so we didn't have to use a moving company. Note: we were leaving a furnished townhouse for an unfurnished apartment, so no big furniture.

I wish it were that easy for us to move around here in Vancouver, Canada. No way would we even be able to find units that big for an affordable price! I've been wanting to move out with my boyfriend for the past year and a half but everything on the market is so small, old, out of the way, or just ridiculously over priced.
