From Las Vegas, Nevada
Jul 6, 2011
Unfurnished 2 + 2 ground floor apt in a four-plex, close to the climbing gym, Red Rocks and Mt. Charleston. It's true this location is the "barrio/hood", but persistent sweeps by L.V. Metro has cleaned the neighborhood up a lot. It's just friendly working class folks now. In fact it is the friendliest neighborhood I have lived in Las Vegas. Good freeway access for trips to Red Rocks, Mt. Charleston, even Utah.
The unit I live in had a kitchen fire from the previous tenant. The landlord took the insurance money to undertake a complete renovation, but was required to bring the entire apartment up to current code. So new wiring, new carpet, European style cabinets, paint, new doors, new appliances, new A/C unit, new washer/dryer in apt, fireplace, approx. 973 Sq. Ft. the monthly rent is $600 and I estimate utilities at about $110.00
I want to split the cost 50/50.
I work from my desktop trading options in the stock market. Usually trading mornings from 5:00 to 9:00 A.M. - sometimes till 1:00 P.M. Rest of the time I am climbing, hanging out and training at the Red Rocks Climbing Gym or pursuing some other outdoor activity. I do a fair amount of new routing so I try to keep my on-sight leading standard at some level of integrity.
There is a workout corner in the living room: perfect pull-up, free weights, Stay-Ball, hang-board, small climbing wall.
Your first month's rent share must be cash, a money order or certified check for $400. We will adjust from there depending on the utilities charges. Internet is included without additional charge. If you want to rent for less than one month then talk to me. General use of course of the common areas and separate bathrooms.
The apartment share is available now. This is cheaper than paying the campground fee and includes your own bathroom.
Far as habits: I'm quiet. My friends tell me to my face I am OK to hang out with...I eat a generally a healthy diet. I've been actively climbing over 35 years. Not a compulsive cleaner, but I try to keep things clean....counters are clean and the place gets regular vacuuming. I sometimes have overnight guests. The climbing gear and guidebooks reside in a dedicated wire shelf for easy access. I've been know to leave a pile of cams on the carpet. I party very rarely.
I do have a cat. She's clean, quiet and friendly. The apartment building is located at Between Jones and Torrey Pines off Lake Mead Ave.
I am looking for preferably, a fellow rock-climber who is moderately quiet, neat and responsible to 1/2 share of rent and utilities. No smoking. No dogs: there just isn't room. Aside from studying trading I am planning several road trips this year and 2013.
