If you’re in the market for a new apartment, it can be a daunting task to sift through all the options and find the perfect place to call home. That’s where we come into play. We are a FREE apartment locating service that can help you find the perfect home. We take all of your opinions, requirements, and concerns into consideration and create a list of the best options for you. To help you get started touring apartments and create a list of things that are important to you, here are 10 things to look out for when touring apartments:
Location: Consider the proximity of the apartment to your work, public transportation, grocery stores, and other amenities that are important to you. Make sure it’s in a safe and convenient area. We can help you with this as most of our agents were born and raised here in Dallas.
Layout: Take note of the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as the general flow of the apartment. Are there any awkward spaces or weird configurations that might make the apartment feel cramped or uncomfortable? Do you need a specific number of bedrooms? These are all important things to consider to help your locator find the perfect place for you.
Storage: Check the closet and cabinet space to make sure it’s sufficient for your needs. Also, take a look at any additional storage options, such as a storage unit or garage. Most complexes have these options available to rent monthly.
Natural light: Take a look at how much natural light the apartment gets during the day. This can have a big impact on the overall feel and mood of the space.
Noise: Pay attention to the noise level in the apartment, both from inside the building and from outside. This is especially important if you’re a light sleeper or work from home.
Maintenance: Ask about the maintenance and repair policies, as well as the responsiveness of the maintenance staff. Make sure you’re comfortable with the process for getting things fixed if something breaks.
Amenities: Consider the building’s amenities, such as a gym, pool, or laundry facilities. Make sure they match your lifestyle and needs. A lot of Dallas apartments have really awesome, high end amenities that you’re sure to love.
Rent and utilities: Possibly one of the most important things to consider, the cost of rent, as well as any additional fees or utilities that may not be included. This will help you determine if the apartment is within your budget. As apartment locators, our agents have access to all of the best specials and options to help you get the best price possible.
Parking: If you have a car, make sure you understand the parking options, including any costs or restrictions. Some people prefer a parking garage, while others like the convenience of parking in front of their unit. Dallas has plenty of both to satisfy both sides.
Landlord/Management: Finally, ask your agent about the landlord or management company to get a sense of their reputation. A good landlord can make all the difference in a happy and stress-free tenancy.
Touring apartments can be overwhelming, but with your apartment locator keeping these 10 things in mind, you can be sure to find the perfect place that meets all of your needs and wants. Good luck!
