Moving into a new apartment is an extremely exciting next step in your life! When you’re not ready to commit to the large investment of a home or simply need to downsize, an apartment is the perfect option. However, with so many different apartment buildings in the area offering such different lifestyle options, choosing one can be extremely difficult. At Kaftan Communities, we want to help you find the perfect new home, so we’ve compiled a list of the key features to consider when finding an apartment to rent. Read on to learn how to find the perfect apartment for you!
Depending on where you work, the neighborhood and accessibility to nearby attractions, location is key. This should be one of the top things to consider when choosing your new home. Try to find an apartment with a centralized location from your job, attractions you’re interested in, family, friends, and shopping centers.
Creating a budget and finding a place within that range is another top criterion when choosing an apartment. Be sure to account for parking, utilities, and additional charges, if necessary!
If you have a lot of belongings or are perhaps living with a roommate, extra square footage is key. Most apartments are anywhere from 600-1,000 square feet, so be sure to pick the correct size for your living needs!
Many apartment complexes these days have on-site laundry, gyms, pools, resident events and more! When touring a building, be sure to ask about the amenities available for residents to see if you could see yourself fitting in there.
If you’re an animal lover, great! However, not everyone feels the same way about furry friends. Be sure to ask each apartment you’re looking at if they’re pet-friendly. Some may have restrictions on the number of pets or even their weight, so be sure to double check! In addition, there may be a monthly charge factored into your rent per animal.
Whatever your apartment needs may be, Kaftan Communities has a place that you can call home. Contact us today to set up a tour of one of our apartment communities!
