When you’re looking for an apartment, it’s important to be sure you are completely happy with the one you choose before you move in. You know to ask questions, but what about physically checking for certain things yourself? People sometimes fail to do this, and it can end up leaving them stuck.
During your apartment hunting adventure, you should avoid these 3 major mistakes at all costs:
- Failing to thoroughly read your lease. You should know every detail of your lease so that there are no surprises later. We are happy to go over your lease with you and discuss any questions you may have.
- Neglecting to take photos of existing flaws. If you notice any issues that are there before you move in, take photos to document them for future reference. This way, you can’t be blamed for someone else’s doing. We have an on-site maintenance team, so if there was any damage from a past tenant, it would have most likely already been taken care of!
- Not checking if everything works properly. It might seem like common sense, but you’d be surprised at how many people skip this. Test out the light switches, open the refrigerator, plug your phone charger into the outlets – make sure everything is in working order so that it can be addressed if it is not! Again, our maintenance team makes sure everything is running smoothly in all of our apartments.
