Priscilla Miles. Apartment. September 12th , 2018.
An unadvertised rental that was behind a private home was one of the nicest options available to me. I found a cozy one bedroom suite that was perfect for me in that small building. I almost fell in love with the place, even though it wasn't one of the affordable apartments for rent that I put on my list. That wonderful apartment was just too far out of the way for me.
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.
The way we used to find somewhere to live was by looking in the newspaper or on bulletin boards, making many phone calls and just hoping that all the places haven't already been rented that we want to look at. Trying to find an apartment to rent could take you days and sometimes even weeks. And you would be going in blind if you were moving across the country because there was no way to see what you would be getting.
