Don’t Regret Your Rental

Renting an apartment or even a home is just as an important step as when you’re buying a home when it comes to all the verifying and inquiring about the space. When renting, there’s a big possibility you’ll stay in the same space for several years, so you want to make sure you love the space, the amenities the price and the actual deal.

When you’re visiting the place you’re interested in, make sur to ask plenty of questions to your landlord or the realtor working on his or her behalf.

Ask about noise issues within the building. How are they dealing with construction, either outside or from neighboring apartments? Is there a limit to the time your neighbors can still do their laundry in the communal facilities? Is there more young families with children or more seniors? If the walls are thin, noise can be a problem, so just figure out the most honest answers to this question. The issue of noise can be an even bigger problem if you work from a home office. You’ll be trying to concentrate and make business phone calls while there’s someone operating a drill nearby. Another important point regarding working from home is internet connection. You want to make sure you’ll have access to high-speed internet so you can run your business effectively, without worrying about lost connections or timely downloads.

When you’re visiting an apartment, make sure that what you’re inspecting is the actual unit that’s offered to you and not one “like” it. Pay extra attention to this when you’re touring a rental community. If you like what you see, ask about repairs and maintenance and how that’s handled.

Parking can be another variable to watch out for. There can be a shortage of spaces or none at all since some condominium complexes only offer valet. While that can sound like a good thing, think about the morning time when you’re rushing to work and you have to wait for three other people before you to get their car. Sometimes a parking space is an extra monthly payment as well. It’s good to inquire before you sign on the dotted line.
