Finding an Apartment

Finding the right apartment can be a difficult task. Many renters don’t even know where to begin. They look in the local paper, check a few national or local web sites and often get disappointed with what apartments are available. Part of the reason is that a lot of apartments are not advertised well. Many renters like to see photos of an apartment or learn many of the details before making an effort to visit.

Here are some search tips for finding quality apartments near you:
Search early. Start looking for an apartment before you actually need it. Searching for an apartment can take a lot of time.

Evaluate your top priorities in finding the right apartment and write them down. Keep the list short.

Compare apartments and consider using a checklist to compare them.

Research the cost of living in the area. Also, make sure you prepare a list of other possible expenses such as utilities, water, transportation or parking and food when considering your housing buget.

Know the area – When moving to a new area, if possible have a friend, family member or someone who knows there way around show you the area.

Have your deposit ready – if someone else gets their deposit in first, you could lose out on a great apartment.

Don’t hesitate – if you find an apartment you like, get it.

The bottom line when searching for an apartment, is to be prepared. You will likely live in the apartment for one year or more so taking the time to find the right place will save you time later if you decide to move.

Please remember, if you used Apartment Rental Maps to find your new apartment home, remember to tell them "I found you in the Apartment Map!"
