Elaine Nicholson Apartment, 2018-07-20 09:45:44. The independence of renting your first apartment is exciting, but don't allow your excitement to overshadow reason. Being a first-time renter is challenging and requires responsibility. Before you start viewing apartments, take some time to define your needs and calculate a budget. Add up all of your monthly income, including financial aid, and multiply this number by 0.3. The resulting value is 30% of your monthly income and roughly the amount you can comfortably spend on rent. Only consider apartments for rent with a cost close to this number. Now, do you have pets? Are you open to a roommate? What amenities do you prefer? Do you have transportation, or will you need to walk to class? Ask yourself questions like these, and stay within your budget to narrow your options.

Use several websites to read reviews from. It is important that you get a good idea of what to expect from a certain management company. Keep in mind, not all rentals will have reviews about them online, but that doesn't necessarily mean the place is good. Take all reviews with a grain of salt. Everyone is different, and what may have been a nightmare for someone's expectations, may not be for you. After reading several reviews, consider what are common problems they have all discussed. For example, many reviews mention that local residents smoke in the alley; it is safe to say most residents are smokers.
