5 Things to Look for When Apartment Shopping, Lexington-Fayette, Kentucky

With hundreds of rental listings across half a dozen websites, apartment hunting can be overwhelming. But if you know what you're looking for, you'll have an easier time. Before you start, consider the following factors to narrow down your choice of apartments.

5 Things to Consider When Looking at Apartments

1. Budget

Before you start to look at apartments, you should know your price range. Go through your budget and figure out exactly what you can afford. Have a firm idea of your ideal price and the highest you can go. You want to ensure you can live comfortably while paying for your new home.

2. Location

ApartmentsLook at the location of your work, school, local stores, and any other establishment you visit frequently. The closer you can get to these important places, the less time you'll spend in the car and the calmer your life will be. Decide beforehand what's the maximum distance you're willing to drive, and look at homes inside that radius.

3. Amenities

Make a list of all the basic amenities your apartment must have, such as laundry facilities, a dishwasher, a yard, a quality HVAC system, parking, and storage space. When you view the apartments available, check for everything on your list, and consider extra amenities — such as pools and fitness centers.

4. Neighborhood

Even a few blocks can make a massive difference to the environment around your apartment. Make sure you look in neighborhoods where you'll feel comfortable and safe, especially those with welcoming communities.

5. Utilities

Double check with each landlord which utilities you'll be responsible for and what your bill is likely to look like. This can tack hundreds onto your rent if you aren't careful. Also, make sure services like phone and internet meet your needs.

With careful planning, you can ensure the apartment you choose is perfect for your household. Sit down today and decide what's most important to you in your housing.
