Priscilla Miles Apartment, 2018-09-12 04:31:52. First and foremost, you need to know the location of the place where you want to rent an apartment. Ideally, it's better to get an apartment that's near your workplace or school so you won't have to commute every day. Also, choose a place that's accessible to some of the important places around town like drugstores and groceries just in case you need them. Living near these places allows you to save on time and money.

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.
Lilianna Bryant Apartment, 2018-09-11 21:32:51. 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.

Kayla Vaughan Apartment, 2018-07-18 13:55:49. 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.

Try to see just how much you will be paying monthly including shopping for your needs like food and clothing and transportation cost (if you happen to choose an apartment that's far from your place of work). And try to compute the amount you will be saving for each choice of apartment. Go for the one that lets you save more than what you have to pay for rent. Remember, an apartment that consumes most of your monthly income is never a good choice for it can leave you penniless having to pay for extra fees and utility bills. So, when choosing apartments for rent, always familiarize the area, try out the apartment for one whole day and check out its price. Nothing should be worth more than your life and certainly not even apartments!

Also, when talking rental agreement with the landlord, make sure that it includes the rental rate, security deposits, length of occupancy, apartment rules and termination requirements. Ask questions like how many people can stay in the apartments, when is the rent collection, what are included in the rental rates (i.e, water, gas, electricity, etc.) and under what conditions is the deposit refundable. And lastly, don't forget to check for signs of damage before you move in and inform the landlord immediately so you don't have to pay for anything you didn't break.

To start finding the best apartments, you need to try a variety of ways and the most common ones include using brokers, by word-of-mouth, the classifieds, apartment referral services, community groups and online apartment guides.

Alaina Sosa Apartment, 2018-07-18 12:30:58. Most apartment complexes in modern suburbia have substantial amenities that old inner city complexes may not have. These amenities should always be considered when choosing the best apartment for your needs. Is having an available in ground pool a desire for you and your family? Is the ability to have 24 hour access to a gym on the top of your list of amenities? Modern apartment complexes often have both of these things, along with laundry facilities, security departments, and sometimes things such as tennis courts, community rooms and volleyball pits.

Juniper Rowland Apartment, 2018-07-18 01:34:15. 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.
