Apartment viewing can be fun and exciting, but it's important to focus and pay attention to the unit and the complex as a whole. To keep yourself on track, create a checklist of things to look for at each place. If you don't wish to make your own, there are pre-formatted checklists available online. Never lease an apartment before checking it for basic safety standards and making sure everything works properly. Check fire alarms, hot water heaters, air conditioning units, fireplaces, showers, and faucets. Make sure all the appliances work and check floors and walls for scuffs or tears. If there are no serious issues and you decide to move in, make a note of any flaws you uncovered and report them to the property manager. You don't want to be blamed for something done by a prior tenant when you leave.
An interesting feature which I realized while surfing the portals of these real estate agencies is that they facilitate you to place the type of property you want to rent in and do not pressurize you to live in the apartment suggested by them. Moving ahead the experts of these agencies will let you visit the place before finalizing the deal with the property owner, moreover the experts of these agencies will help you in getting the formalities associated with renting an apartment accomplished according to the rules and regulations prevailing specific region. One more interesting feature about the portals of these agencies is that they have the pictures of properties available for rent with them from both exterior and interior, thus making it easier for you to at-least estimate the condition of the place you are going to live in.
Make sure you check out the crime rate in your potential area. There are some crimes that are annoying, but if you choose an area with a high crime rate, it can become a life threatening problem. Most counties and cities publish their crime rate reports online for free public viewing. Traffic is something else that you need to be aware of. It isn't enough to just visit the apartment in person. Even if it's located next to a freeway, it doesn't necessarily mean there won't be constant traffic jams.
