3 Smart Tips for Long-Distance Apartment Hunting , Conway East, South Carolina

Local apartment hunting is stressful, but finding a place to live in an entirely new city can feel overwhelming. The team at A1 Properties in Vernon, CT, and Myrtle Beach, SC, have helped numerous clients streamline the process. To get you started, they share three tips on how to approach the search while living out-of-state.

How to Tackle Long-Distance Apartment Hunting

1. Research Potential Neighborhoods 

Do thorough research on the neighborhoods you’re considering. If you have friends or family members that live nearby, ask which areas are safe and fall within your price range. Check how far the prospective apartments are from work, as well as venues and activities you enjoy. See if the area offers convenient public transportation or parking. You want to account for more than just the beauty of any given space but also convenience and quality of life.

2. Use Technology as a Resource

Apartment HuntingAfter finding an apartment of interest, take advantage of any technological tools to make a quick decision. Most real estate agents conduct meetings through video chat applications. Doing so allows you to take a virtual tour of the apartment and ask the professional questions about the space without having to travel each time. 

3. Have Your Documents Ready

During the search, you may have to take a last-minute trip to the new state to sign the apartment lease. Have all your documents ready, especially if time is limited. Put together a folder with your checkbook, recent bank statements, and a pay stub from your current workplace. Bring valid identification such as a driver’s license or a passport.
