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.
recent trend is emerging in which old buildings such as ancient colleges and schoolhouses are being converted into apartments. While looking dingy and old on the outside, many of these units are state of the are luxurious living after their conversions to apartments are complete. Luxury apartments in 200 year old buildings are very hip, especially closer to the big cities where style counts for something. Often times in large cities, apartment renting is the only way to find shelter since the price for real estate is so incredibly sky high that it is nearly impossible for the average Joe to afford to buy a condo or single family residence.
It is crucial that you rent an apartment that is in a neighborhood that fits your needs. If you need work or you like the nightlife, choose an area with restaurants, clubs and shopping centers nearby. It helps to use Google Earth to get a feel for the place, but once again don't base your entire opinion of a place on online screenshots. Places often look different from what you see online.
