5 Ways to Find the Perfect Apartment

Searching for a new apartment can be hard. You have a big decision to make, and finding the right apartment is even more important if you have to sign a long-term lease. According to Craig Van Lines, about 33% of renters move each year. Here are five tips for finding the best apartment as a renter.

1. Do Your Research

Start by doing your research on some of the apartments in your area. There are tons of rental listing websites and resources that can help you find a place to rent. Ideally, you want to start with a list of several apartments you might want to move to.

2. Visit Apartments in Person

Before you rent an apartment, make sure you check it out in person. Pictures can show you the general layout of an apartment, but they can’t show you the same level of detail that you can see in person.

3. Call Property Management Companies

Look up property management companies in your area and call them or check out some of their current listings. A lot of apartments are managed by property management companies, so you can find whole lists of available rentals from each company.

4. Ask Friends and Coworkers

Do you have a friend or coworker who’s happy with their apartment? Maybe you’ve been to a friend’s apartment that you really liked. Moving into an apartment you’re familiar with is always a good idea, and you can count on your friends and coworkers to give you the honest truth about their apartments.

5. Look at Reviews

If you’re still having trouble narrowing down your list of apartments, check out some reviews. Not every renter leaves a review, but checking online feedback is a good way to figure out if there are any common problems tenants have with a property management company or apartment. If the apartment you’re considering gets good reviews, you probably don’t have to worry about problems like nosy landlords or loud neighbors.

Moving to a new apartment is a big decision, especially when you consider the deposit and lease terms. It’s important to do your research and visit apartments in person to make sure you’re moving to a good place.
