5 Apartment Features You Should Never Pass Up February 4, 2019

5 Apartment Features You Should Never Pass Up, Conway East, South Carolina

No matter their size, the best apartment rentals often share a number of important features and amenities that contribute to a more functional, comfortable space, while keeping monthly costs down. If you’re apartment hunting, here’s a list of features to look for. 

Must-Have Apartment Amenities & Features

1. Onsite Laundry

Avoid having to use a laundromat by looking for an apartment rental with onsite laundry. You’ll be able to stay on top of laundry even when it’s rainy or snowy and save money. Most apartment laundry facilities cost less than commercial laundromats; using the washer will often cost $1.50 instead of $2.00 per use.

2. Pet-Friendly

Choose a pet-friendly apartment rental to avoid having to sneak your dog or cat into the building or, worse, having to give your pet to a shelter. Pet-friendly apartments also provide the opportunity to meet and socialize with other pet owners in your building. You may even meet a neighbor who is willing to watch your pet when you are away.

3. Included Utilities

Cooling and heating costs during these seasons can be high, making tenants turn their thermostats up or down significantly, resulting in a less-comfortable environment.

4. Plenty of Outlets

A lack of outlets can increase your electrical fire risks due to overloaded outlets or power strips. Circuit breakers are capable of handling a specific amount of voltage per electrical line, and too many appliances plugged into one outlet or connected power strip can cause a circuit to short and possibly catch fire.

5. Parking

An apartment that includes parking will save you on having to pay for a permit or street parking, especially if it’s in a high-traffic area. Additionally, you won’t have to stress looking for parking, and your car will be safe from burglars and vandals.
