3 Considerations to Make Before Renting Your First Apartment, Ashland, Kentucky

Whether you’re downsizing or moving out of the family home, renting your first apartment can be an exciting experience. With so many options to choose from, it can be difficult to narrow options to find an apartment rental you can transform into a comfortable home. To help find your dream dwelling, below are a few factors to consider.  

3 Points to Keep in Mind When Searching for Your First Apartment

1. Nearby Shops & Services

Before you sign an apartment rental contract, think about whether the building is located near your job, a supermarket, public transportation or gas stations, and any other shops and services you need often. Picking an apartment close to these locations could make life easier by cutting down on how much time you spend commuting. If you prefer to journey by foot, pick a residence within walking distance to these destinations. This way, you won’t have too far to go to get what you need during bad weather.

2. Usable Features

To aid in the search, reach out to apartment rental companies and ask which features come with the units. If you love to cook, for example, you could benefit from an apartment with an electric stove, dishwasher, and other appliances, as well as a large refrigerator and pantry. If you often entertain, you might want a living room with built-in shelves to hold stereo equipment, gaming consoles, DVDs, and other belongings.

3. Long-Term Cost

As you search for a place, ask which costs are covered in the rent. Apart from funds for a deposit and monthly rent, you should also have money in the bank for electricity and other utilities, as well as cable, internet service, and renters’ insurance. Go over your budget and yearly income to decide what rental you can comfortably afford.
