Finding the ideal space for lease can sometimes feel like looking for a needle in a haystack. About 33% of people who rent move every year, either they move to a new apartment or a home, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Unfortunately, this means there is a lot of competition for the perfect space for lease. Once you have found a space, here are things to consider to ensure that space will fit your lifestyle.
Does It Have Enough Space?
One of the biggest problems people run into with space for lease is the size. After trudging around for a few showings, you may feel a bit burned out, and be willing to “downsize” into a space that doesn’t fit your lifestyle. Don’t make this mistake. Take a step back and really give the space consideration, and what would it mean to have to accept a smaller space? You may find that in the end the space just can’t work for you. Keep in mind if you do accept a smaller space than you need, you will likely join the 33% of Americans that move every year sooner than you think. It may be best to continue your search.
What Do You Need From the Lease Space?
It is important when you find a space for lease that the space can provide you with what you need to live comfortably. Do you need a lot of natural light to feel mentally good? Do you have a dog or a cat? Will the space permit pets? These features, if they are important to your lifestyle, will have a great deal of impact in how you feel about living in space. Don’t compromise on the needs that are really important to you.
How Much Does The Lease Space Cost?
It is important that you know what is covered in the lease. How much will it cost? What is included in the cost? Is maintenance covered? Do you have to pay for trash services, water, or other utilities? Before you sign on the dotted line, no matter how much you love the space for lease, be sure you are going in with your eyes wide open.
