  • (upbeat electronic music)

  • - Hey guys, I'm Karlos, I live in beautiful Seattle.

  • Usually it's the city of the gray, but today,

  • the city of sunshine.

  • I pay $1995 a month, about $2000 a month for rent here,

  • and I'm gonna show you my beautiful home and my apartment

  • and show you what you get for about two grand in Seattle.

  • (upbeat electronic music)

  • - Hey y'all, my name is Ellis and welcome to my house

  • in Austin, Texas.

  • Where we pay $1950 for rent.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - [Karlos] As you can see, I have 26 foot fit ceilings.

  • We actually live in the basement of my apartment building.

  • I actually saw this building get constructed.

  • So we kinda got to see all of this before it was even

  • finished, which was kind of cool.

  • I have a blue a nose pitbull who loves to dig.

  • In my last apartment, he literally dug through the floor.

  • So with our new apartment, we wanted to get floors

  • that were impenetrable.

  • 'Cause as you can see, he's pretty rowdy.

  • I really try to keep a lot of greenery in here,

  • because I feel like greenery brings happiness

  • to your home and life and

  • yeah, I just think it's amazing.

  • - So upstairs is the kitchen and the living room.

  • Because we don't have much room up here,

  • it's not super big, you don't have room

  • for a dining room table.

  • But we do have a counter and some bar stools

  • which is where we can just sit to eat all of our meals.

  • Then over here we have our TV.

  • And our couches is where we spend a lot of our time

  • just hanging out.

  • We also have a balcony.

  • So this is really nice to have

  • where we can come outside.

  • Spend time out on our balcony as well.

  • - [Karlos] This is the kitchen.

  • This is one of my favorite places in my whole apartment.

  • I cook every night.

  • So I cook breakfast and dinner every day.

  • As you can see I'm also a minimalist.

  • I like a nice clean space.

  • Our apartment gives us quartz countertops

  • which is really cool.

  • We do have a dishwasher here.

  • This is one of my favorite things in my whole kitchen

  • is this deep sink.

  • I also like this extension

  • that it comes with the apartment.

  • Another thing I love about the apartment,

  • is this under LED lighting.

  • It adds, if you turn off the other lights,

  • you can just see how it just adds just like a little bit

  • of like sophistication.

  • - Our kitchen is pretty small,

  • but we have everything we need.

  • And we actually just got a brand new oven

  • which is really great to have.

  • And we also have a dishwasher.

  • It is small, but all of our appliances are right

  • where we need them.

  • And we also have a nice big pantry.

  • Where we can keep all of our food.

  • - Another reason why I love my apartment is

  • that is has a loft.

  • You can actually look right down into the living room.

  • You can see the dogs, you can see your guests.

  • And then you also have a nice view of the trail.

  • - So it's a two bedroom, one bathroom house.

  • This is the first bedroom.

  • Both bedrooms are on the first floor.

  • Pretty small.

  • But it's a decent place for what you can get in Austin.

  • Here we have the second bedroom.

  • Which is technically the same size as the first bedroom.

  • But the only difference is that this bedroom has

  • closet doors that open up instead of slide open.

  • And clearly we don't have much space.

  • But we do have extra storage space elsewhere in the house

  • which is really great.

  • And this is our bathroom which is a shared bathroom

  • between myself and my roommate.

  • But it is really spacious and we have two sinks

  • which is great 'cause we can each be in here getting ready

  • at the same time and not be in each other's way.

  • And then we also have separate room with the door

  • with the toilet and shower which is also great

  • if one of us is in the shower getting ready for the morning

  • and then the other can still be in the bathroom

  • using the sinks or mirror.

  • - [Karlos] This is our downstairs bathroom.

  • I really like the downstairs bathroom.

  • We have a stand up shower here.

  • My husband actually uses this bathroom

  • to get dressed in the morning.

  • Because I don't, he gets up at like five in the morning.

  • I don't get up till like seven, so.

  • I don't want him to wake me up.

  • - So even though there's limited space in our house,

  • we do have some extra storage space in the garage.

  • Which is great for any extra clothes, luggage, furniture,

  • anything else that we need to store some where.

  • And luckily we also have parking right outside.

  • We don't need to park our cars in the house.

  • And another great thing about our house is

  • that we have a washer and dryer over here.

  • So the garage doubles as our laundry room.

  • And this is a really great thing to have

  • 'cause not all apartments come with a washer and dryer.

  • - Let's move on into the laundry room.

  • Ugh, laundry.

  • We initially had the stackables,

  • and we don't like stackables.

  • So our apartment actually upgraded after

  • a couple complaints.

  • So what's cool about this building as well is that

  • they have this app.

  • There's a guest suite which is super cool.

  • So for $79 a night, you can actually rent this guest suite

  • that's in our building.

  • It's an Airbnb suite.

  • But we pay them directly through your rent.

  • So we get free Ubers from the building

  • Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

  • So if you leave from the building,

  • you can actually get, you get $25,

  • it's like a little voucher that's actually tacked

  • on your Uber account.

  • (chill music)

  • - Thanks for checking out my house in Austin.

  • This is what you can get for $1950.

  • Some of the best parts are having a nice big garage,

  • and a washer and dryer,

  • as well as a big bathroom.

  • Bye ya'll!

  • (chill music)

  • - So, one of my favorite things to do is come

  • have a drink on the rooftop of our building.

  • And you can actually see the Cascades Mountains

  • on a clear day.

  • Having a drink, we have a fire.

  • You guys can show your way out, cheers.

  • (chill R&B music)
