How to Reduce Stress while Apartment Hunting

apartment

1. Make a list of your needs.

Know what kind of budget you’re working with, what kind of amenities you need and what you’re willing to go with out – and what you absolutely can’t.

2. Prepare your paperwork and your bank account.

Organization can make your life easier when things get hectic.

  • Three Recent Pay Stubs
  • Landlord reference or letter
  • Photo ID

3. Do some research

Make sure you know what kind of neighborhood you’re about to move into. Is it safe? Put in the address on http://www.watchdog.com and call the local sheriff’s office to see what the crime in like in the area.

4. Don’t be afraid to be thorough. 

Don’t be afraid to check the plumbing, open closets, ask about typical utility bills, or inquire about any potential pests or problems like leaks. Often agents will rush you through a showing and into a decision. Take your time, take pictures, and ask any questions that you feel are important.

5. Bring a trusted friend.

A trusted friend can be an important source of support during the apartment search.

Check out these Amenities that Drive Up Rent

While you’re apartment hunting it is important to know that there are key factors that may raise the price of your monthly rent. Here the scoop—

1. Living near an interstate

If living near the interstate or a highway is important to you, then the added cost of having an apartment a mile or so away from one may drive the cost of your rent up.

2. Elevator

The convenience of having an elevator in your building can still be pretty costly. On average, Priceonomics estimates that an elevator will add $120 to your monthly rent.

3. Fitness center

Priceonomics’ study shows that people pay an average of $90 a month for a fitness center, so if working out in your own building isn’t all that important to you, consider spending your money elsewhere.

4. Laundry in building
