Focus on the Family

family blog

Ditch The space is a site that is geared towards everyone and anyone. While we have focused a lot on college students and the young twenty something’s we want you to know we are here for everyone’s use. So with that said, today we are changing it up and focusing on the family.

Families, aw that word has so much behind it. For some of us we smile and for others of us we cringe. Whatever feelings arise you still know what a family looks like.

My family and I are from Orange County, CA. I grew up with a swimming pool, backyard, and I got to play outside basically every single day (The benefits of no winter). Moving here was definitely rough at times, but I have figured out how to manage. Here in New York City pools and big backyards don’t exist. Families across American look so different, to each their own.

However, If that last part got you thinking, wishing, and hoping about more space then maybe it is time to switch it up. Maybe it is time to move out of the city and into Brooklyn, Queens, Jersey, Connecticut, you name it! If you are truly ready then take the first step and head on over to DitchTheSpace.com. If you are just toying with the idea still head on over to ditchthespace.com and be inspired! Let us help you find your new gain and or inspire you. Don’t feel bad about ditching your NYC Apartment. Look at your ditch as helping someone else find their new gain. “Your Ditch is Their Gain”. Forget dreading ditching your apartment and focus on what could be. Think about all the wonderful memories that are going to be made in your new place. The move will be well worth your while! And hey, once you realize the value of much more room for you and your wonderful family maybe, just maybe the extra space will entice you to add another little one to your gang.

Rest and Relaxation

Rest and Relaxation, it is truly needed to revive ourselves. We work hard but if it’s all for nothing if we don’t give ourselves space to just be.

This last week I headed back home, to Southern California, for some R&R time. It was just what I needed to feel refreshed and come back to the real world with a new sense of newly founded optimism. Oh, how wonderful my rest time was. I took time to fixate my eyes on the beautiful beaches and I just sat. I sat thinking about all the unimportant things, and let me tell you it was great!

We all need moments like these, moments where we allow the everyday stresses to be put to rest, just for a while. We need to enjoy life and enjoy the sights around us. So go, be, and enjoy the rest you deserve.

Don’t worry DitchTheSpace will be around when you get back. We will be by your side when you get back from time away and realize that you need to ditch your space and find a new place that will continue making you feel alive, just like that R&R time did.

So my friends go be free for a week or weekend and remember Rest and Relaxation is the perfect recipe for rejuvenation!

Here are some soothing sounds to calm you over for the next couple of hours in the event you are interested. Recharge your batteries and enjoy life!

Summer travel: But first sublet your space!

      image(Monaco)
Sublet your space with us this summer and travel! Travel now because the value of the Dollar is stronger than ever! It is time to explore European countries and get more bang for your buck. However, as we know and have experienced it is not that simple. In fact, it is much more complicated than that. The truth is logistics come into play. We must think about bills and figure out how it is possible to travel and still pay rent, not to mention rent!!! Did I mention paying rent? Sadly it is hard to travel and pay rent without stressing over finances.

There are many options to avoid this inevitable headache like planning and saving for years, but why? Why don’t you allow your wanderlust soul to take root and go this summer, why wait! Go to the places you have imagined and day dreamed about while at your 9 to 5 job! Let’s stop for one moment and just imagine. Imagine those places, those smells, and that tan that will add a fine color of soul refreshment to your tone.

I know we here at Ditch The Space, have dreamed about a get away to Paris or even a long stay in Monaco. Can you see it now? We sure can!

Spring Time Sublets… Maybe Williamsburg? Anyone?

                                                               photobyliz

One of our favorite things about spring is the joy that it brings to New York. It is soul fueling for every New Yorker that just survived that long and brutal winter. New York is a place where you go to find adventure and chase after experiences; we would be lying if we said seasons didn’t add to our cities je ne sais quoi. The reason being is that different seasons make different areas of the city more intriguing and for us in spring that is Williamsburg. Don’t we all just love the artsy souls that seem to congregate there? This is our go to place for subletting in spring because Williamsburg offers so much to its people. They have everything from fabulous food, arcade bars to outdoor flea market. One of our favorite flea markets is Smorgasburg (http://www.smorgasburg.com) it is by far one of our favorites because it takes place outdoors and the community of local vendors and artist that come together to hang out and embrace the local businesses. Since it takes place outside it sadly must close every year for winter and all winter long we anticipate it’s fourth coming once again. Alongside flea market fabulousness, Williamsburg has affordable boutiques and secret rooftop gems, which offers spectacular views of the city.(Hint.. Hint.. Above Urban Outfitters) Not to mention it is close to the Brooklyn Botanical gardens, which are a must see in spring. The cherry blossoms alone will put a smile on your face and you will begin to wonder if winter was actually just a bad nightmare.

Why don’t you just spring on over to Williamsburg, but first you spring on over to Ditchthespace.com and find your next gain so that you can be springing into a new place, maybe conveniently located in the heart of Williamsburg? Currently we have places that offer residency for as little as 1 month or as long as two years. Happy spring my fellow friends! Now go spring into action!!

However, let’s be realistic, business is ever changing.  Your business might grow over night or come to a screeching halt (which we hope doesn’t happen) for whatever reason you need a new space.  All of a sudden you are faced with the reality that you just signed a lease that you can’t get out of, or maybe you can as long as you find a new tenant.

Whatever position you find yourself in we can help.  Ditch the Space is the perfect place for you to ditch your space and find your new gain. Our online databases are filled with commercial spaces that offer short term or long-term sublets or leases. Why don’t you post your ditch and sublet or lease assignment.

Sublet Your Furnished Space This Summer and Make Extra $$

Summer is a great time to suspend your day-to-day reality in favor of a little more adventure. Many people take the summer season to travel, study, or work in another state or country. If you’re one of these people, you might want to sublet your apartment.

Your mundane is someone else’s adventure, so while New Yorkers like you might be shuffling off to a teaching assignment in Beijing or a writing program in Dublin, or even just going back to the West Coast on break from school, plenty of people around the country- and world!- are packing their bags for a summer adventure in New York City. If you’re in school, you may also find that many of your fellow students are looking for local summer housing.

Of course collecting rent and having your apartment occupied is a no-brainer, but what about dealing with all of your furniture? Leave it and you can rent that out too! Renting your furniture as part of the sublet deal is an easy and convenient way to make a little extra money while you’re away for the summer, and furnished spaces are an attractive option for new or temporary New Yorkers.

We love furnished listings at DitchTheSpace.com. It’s free to list your space, and our prospective tenants are qualified, responsible folks– exactly the sort of people you want in your apartment.

Is that enough incentive to overcome your lingering doubts about what to do this summer? Go on, get out there! Rent your place furnished, and you might even recoup the cost of your plane tickets!

Did the groundhog see his shadow?

After months of frigid temperatures, warmer weather is around the corner! Every big apple resident knows the struggles associated with a weekend getaway during the warm weather holidays. Plan early and save money by renting a furnished sublet for the summer!

Not sure where to start? Long Island or New Jersey?Hamptons

You can hop on the jitney, take the LIRR, or carpool your way to The Hamptons for a classic New York style summer! You will find both family friendly beaches AND parties that last all night long! Seen above, a private beach in Southampton, Long Island.

Beach lovers west of the Hudson typically shoot for Atlantic City or Seaside Heights, but the highly priced hotels and rentals (thank you Snooki & the producers of Jersey Shore) are making other NJ shore neighborhoods more attractive! The Jersey shore in general boasts an abundance of residential neighborhoods within walking distance to the beach. You are sure to stumble upon a fireside soiree in places like Belmar and Point Pleasant.

If you have a vacation home for rent in New York or New Jersey, find qualified tenants by listing with Ditch The Space. Start by creating an account here!
