Watch For These 4 Danger Signs When Touring an Apartment

Landlord pointing at floor plan of apartment and giving apartment tourThe search for a new apartment can feel overwhelming. Time is often against you, and you may even begin your search from another state or country. You start by finding apartment options that fit within your desired area and price range. (Tools like ApartmentSearch are great to help you save time on this first part.) But usually, once you have the list narrowed down to a handful of options, you will want to visit the apartments in person. After a long day touring apartments, they often all begin to look the same.

However, there are some important differences you should look out for. Not all apartments are the same and sometimes the challenges can be hard to spot. This list will help you discover the wolf in sheep’s clothing.

Communication – or lack thereof – is key. When the community that you toured is slow about following up with you after the tour, that is a red flag. If they fail to provide adequate, prompt follow-up, then what will happen when you have a maintenance need or other question as a resident? On the other hand, if you left the community only two minutes ago and are receiving a non-personalized follow-up form letter, then they may care less about your visit and more about adhering to a set policy. If they truly care about you becoming a resident, they will follow-up in a proper amount of time and in a sincere way.

There’s more focus on regulations than apartment amenities. As a renter, you must accept certain guidelines and sign a lease in order to live there. However, when you tour a community, overuse of phrases related to your lease contract should be cause for alarm. Watch out for communities that value talking about what they hold residents accountable for rather than how they can help you feel like this apartment will be a home you are comfortable in.

There seem to be a lot of little inconveniences. For many apartment dwellers, it’s the small things that have the most impact. One or two tiny inconveniences are not a big deal, but little things can add up to become big daily nuisances. Look up and down during your apartment tour. Mold lines on exteriors of buildings and dirty breezeways/hallways can signal neglect. Test the water in the apartment. How long does it take for it to get hot? Do you get great cell service in the apartment? Does the light coming through the windows throughout the day (or even at night) meet your needs? Remember: this is going to be your home. Make sure it has all the comforts you want.

You have concerns outside of the tour. Some items can only be learned when you are not on the actual apartment tour and these can stand out like night and day. Visit the community at odd times, such as when your commute would begin/end and at night. Is it crowded getting in or out of the community grounds? At night, is the lighting adequate, allowing you to feel safe walking about? Is nighttime noise a factor? These lessons are best discovered on your own and can make all the difference during your life in your new apartment home.

Of course, there are many more factors to consider, but everything starts with finding the right place to live. Start your apartment-finding process by visiting www.apartmentsearch.com. It is fast… it is easy… and it is free. Make finding your next apartment easy when you visit ApartmentSearch today!

Pros and Cons of Tiny House Living

Smiling man leaning on orange camper van.Are you in the process of looking for a new home? Whether you live alone or you’re relocating with your roommates, you’re probably weighing all of your housing options. Houses and apartments are the two obvious choices, but have you considered tiny houses?

Tiny houses are a relatively modern type of housing that’s gained significant popularity over the past few years. These small-but-mighty homes vary in terms of style, amenities, mobility options, and more! Are you curious about what it’s like to live in one of these charming abodes long-term? Here are the pros and cons of tiny house living.

The Pros of Tiny House Living

In addition to being aesthetically adorable, there are many pros to tiny house living, which can explain their boom in popularity.

Most notably, tiny houses are incredibly affordable in comparison to their “normal-sized” counterparts. They cost much less money and time to build and are typically designed to be highly energy-efficient. Depending on the total cost, tiny home dwellers are often able to skip paying a mortgage altogether. All of these subpoints make tiny houses an especially great option for first-time homeowners.

Additionally, tiny house living can span beyond miniature houses. Converted vans, refurbished buses, and trailers also count! With all of these different options, portability is a big advantage. Choosing the tiny house life allows you to enjoy unconventional freedoms, such as a nomadic lifestyle, going off-the-grid for extended periods, and traveling without pricey hotel bills.

The Cons of Tiny House Living

Although tiny houses have their fair share of perks, it takes a specific personality and lifestyle to thrive under this type of living arrangement. Consider if you’re willing and able to deal with these cons.
Living in a tiny home can cause you to encounter issues that apartments and larger homes manage to avoid. For instance, sub-par plumbing is a known problem with this type of living arrangement. If a tiny house is calling to you, make sure you can handle a composting toilet first. This kind of living experience is not for everyone.

What’s more, tiny homeowners aren’t awarded the luxury of having a landlord, HOA, or dedicated property management company to help with routine maintenance and repairs. Although it’s nice to have ownership of your place, this means more work on your part when something needs to be fixed.

Most obviously, tiny homes are significantly lacking in space. This typically isn’t an issue for those living alone or practicing a minimalist lifestyle; however, that’s where the buck stops. Tiny houses aren’t well equipped to handle large families or excessive storage and can feel quite confining to some.

The Happy Medium

As you can see, tiny houses are an enjoyable and affordable option — but they often come at a cost. If low-maintenance living is what you’re looking for, you’re better off finding an apartment that perfectly suits your needs.

By using our apartment lookup tool, you can find all the things you love about tiny homes in an apartment of your dreams. You don’t have to live in a small house to reside in an on-trend space!

How Much Space Do You Need in Your Apartment?

Older couple sitting on couch, discussing desired apartment sizeIt has often been touted that bigger is better. But that is not necessarily so. In some instances, the practicalities of smaller can be just as alluring as the trappings of a larger option. Great things come in small packages…right? The debate gets even more complicated when you talk about living space and apartments. Who really knows the actual square footage they need in order to live comfortably? What does 750 square feet actually look like — and does it look that much different from 850 or 950? So when searching for your next apartment, how much space do you really need?

How Much “Personal Space” Do You Need?

Everyone has a different need when it comes to space. Some people like to be able to stretch out and enjoy some added elbow room. Others do not want to have to clean any extra surfaces. In addition, the more people living together, the more space that is usually desired. Kids need less space than adults, and a cohabiting relationship often requires less space than roommates. This means that, before the apartment-searching process even begins, the questions of how much space is needed should be addressed.

How Much Stuff Do You Have?

But the discussion does not stop there. Cultural factors often play a key role in the decision. Generational trends reveal that Baby Boomers and Gen X often desire more spaciousness, while Millennials and Gen Z prefer smaller living spaces in order to make more room for experiences. The desire to acquire and retain more possessions leads to a need for more space. So, if you are someone who has a lot of stuff, you are going to need a lot more space in order to store it. Legendary Comedian George Carlin once observed that the purpose of the home is “a place to store your stuff while you go out and get more stuff.”

Can You Afford the Location?

Location is also a key factor. Thanks to suburban sprawl, larger apartments are more prevalent than ever. But, the closer to a city’s interior that you search, the pricier space becomes. The denser the city, the greater the squeeze on space and budget. Micro-living is a growing trend in large US cities and is already a common feature in large international cities. If you desire a life in the city, space is a need you may have to do without.

Can You Afford Everything Else?

All of these coalesce into the most important factor in the discussion on space: price. In the years since the economic downturn, apartment living has increased in popularity. At the same time, more apartments have been constructed to meet the growing demand. The past couple of years have seen rental costs reach their maximum and, in some cities, even begin to decline. How much rent you can afford leads to the ultimate determination on the value of space. Other factors to include in the equation are utility costs and commuting fees. And, once you have your budget determined, the desired location established, your storage requirements analyzed, and your personal space requirements determined, it is time to find your next apartment home.

And not only is ApartmentSearch free to use, it will actually pay you a reward when you tell your apartment community that you found your new home using it. The time has come to find your new home.

5 Advantages to Renting a Furnished Apartment

Legs of woman sitting on the floor with cup of coffeeIf you’re a professional or student always on the move for work, the advantages of furnished apartments are a no brainer. However, renting a furnished apartment can actually be a smart choice for almost anyone! Check out these five huge advantages to see how a furnished apartment could be beneficial for you, from both a cost and convenience perspective.

  1. Furnished apartments are perfect for procrastinators. No judgment here – not everyone carefully plans for a move months in advance. If you need an apartment on short notice, furnished apartments are the perfect solution. Not only will you have a roof over your head, you’ll have one furnished with all the things you want and need, but might not have time to buy.
  2. You’ll save time on decorating and buying furniture. Some people love spending hours on Pinterest planning the perfect décor for their new space, or arranging and rearranging furniture for feng shui. If that’s not you, or you simply don’t have the time or resources to do that, renting a furnished apartment is an ideal compromise. You can still have a cozy, decorated space, but without the anxiety of creating it from scratch.
  3. You’ll benefit from a serious reduction in stress associated with moving. Don’t worry about packing up your old furniture and paying for movers. Don’t stress over measuring every corner and wall of your apartment, hunting for the perfect pieces, then struggling to assemble each one. By renting a furnished apartment, you can skip all of these headache-inducing tasks!
  4. When renting a furnished apartment, you rarely have to commit to a long lease. Not all of us can say for sure that we’ll be in the same city in 12 weeks, let alone 12 months. Leases for furnished apartments are typically much shorter than traditional leases, so you don’t have to worry about breaking a lease when you’re ready to move on to the next adventure.
  5. You can pick and choose your furniture through CORT. Scrap the myth that furnished apartments lack personality. When you rent through CORT, you can handpick each and every piece of furniture and décor that goes into your space. You can customize your space exactly how you like it, creating the apartment you’ve dreamed of. Even better, you aren’t stuck with those pieces for life – so your apartment can easily change when your tastes do!

No matter where you are or where you’re headed, there’s a furnished apartment with your name on it. And no matter where your life takes you, from Boston to San Diego, you can relax knowing your move can be both convenient and cost-effective. Simply visit ApartmentSearch.com, choose the apartment complex that interests you, and click on “Show Me Furnished Apartment Pricing” to learn more!

It’s Renewal Time! Should I Re-Sign My Lease?

Woman with red fingernails, signing paperwork to renew her apartment leaseFor some apartment renters, it is a day of much anxiety. You arrive back to your apartment to the note that your lease will soon expire and you must decide whether to stay or go. Many renters are seeing rate increases included as part of the new rental agreement. This may leave you asking: Is it time to move on or should I renew my lease? Here are some things to consider…

Price Is a Factor

No matter how much your apartment community may sell you on the “value” of your rental rate, the simple truth is that most us of can only afford so much. However, finances can sometimes be rearranged if the increased rate is too far out of your comfort zone. Moving is a pain and costs a chunk of money to accomplish anyways. Plus, there are moving costs to consider too, like fees related to setting up/transferring utilities, putting down a deposit on your new apartment, and a whole host of other unforeseen moving expenses. In the end, even with the increased rental rate, it might be cheaper to stay where you are.

The Value of Roots

Most people enjoy where they live. So, unless you detest your surroundings and can’t wait to get out of there, you may simply prefer to stay put — all things being equal. You have roots in your community. You often have friends, a good relationship with management and maintenance staff, and a good feeling about your surrounding area. The grass is not always greener on the other side. If the thought of leaving crushes your soul, then you might want to consider signing and staying. Loving where you live is priceless.

Is It Time For a Fresh Start?

Going to a new place can have its rewards, too. If rent is less expensive, then you have a bonus to go along with the many other factors that could be desirable in your new place. A new location could mean a shorter commute to and from work, as well as the things you love to do. New amenities could be a draw, as well as an opportunity to create new beginnings. A fresh start is often not only a good thing, but a great thing.

When The Time is Right

Along with these, there are an infinite number of other reasons to move apartments or stay in your current one. Eventually, the time will come when you decide to see what else is out there. When that day arrives, we hope you will visit www.apartmetnsearch.com. There, you will find our extensive database of apartments all across the country. Search by budget, neighborhood, amenities, and all the other things that are important to you.

3 Lessons on “Adulting” For First-Time Apartment Renters

Young couple moving into new apartment, sitting on floor surrounded by boxes but looking excitedSpring is here and for thousands of college students across America, it means one thing… spring break. Visions of beaches, parties and a week-long celebration of their youth fill the days leading up to mid-terms. However, for some college students, spring brings to mind a harsh reality. In just a few short weeks. the ride is up and life in the real world begins. They might be spending spring break apartment hunting to get ready for what lies ahead. Very soon, it will be time for Adulting 101.

Lesson 1 – How Much Do I Need to Move Into A New Apartment?

Finding a new apartment on ApartmentSearch is easy. Once you have an idea of how much you can afford each month, you can search for an apartment based on price, along with factors such as location and desired amenities. But the initial costs to move into your first apartment can quickly add up. Make sure that you have money stashed away for:

  • Security Deposit – Varies between a couple hundred dollars to one month’s rent (or more)
  • Utility Deposits and Hookups – $200 to $500 combined, but prices range by location and provider
  • Moving – One truck, plus friends and family helping could run up to $200, depending on distance
  • Other – Furniture, kitchen needs, bathroom items and such: prices vary

This means you should plan on having at least $1,000 plus your first rent payment to get you started.

Lesson 2 – The Roommate vs. The Troll

Many first-time apartment seekers find comfort in the fact that they do not have to go it alone. They can get a roommate. Resources can be pooled and expenses divided. But the quad living comforts of your previous student housing world do not always transition well to your new world. Shared space and usage can lead to some heated disagreements. Plus, one roommate can be a larger user of utilities, making an even split on bills not a reasonable compromise. Also, be sure that your cleanliness habits and needs match those of your roommate.

This means roommates can be a money saver, but also a headache creator. Use caution when making the decision.

Lesson 3 – Something You Really Need to Know

Some of the things that parents and friends were there to help with in the past may be elusive to you now. The time has come to learn some of the things that will help you succeed out there on your own. Getting yourself ready now means less turmoil later. These things include:

  • How to File Your Taxes
  • Scheduling medical check-ups
  • Budgeting
  • Grocery Shopping/Cooking
  • Practical things to do in an emergency

Of course, everything begins with finding the apartment that is right for you, and that means a visit to www.apartmentsearch.com. Once there, you can find the apartment that is right for you within our comprehensive national database. And, when you tell your leasing agent that you found your apartment using ApartmentSearch, you can earn up to $200 in rewards. This goes a long way to helping you to start adulting on the right foot.

How to Apartment Hunt With Your Significant Other

Young couple Moving in new home.Sitting on floor and relaxing after cleaning and unpacking.Your relationship has gotten serious! With hearts in your eyes and butterflies in your belly, you’ve decided to move in together. Now, you’re ready to tackle your first cohabitation challenge: apartment hunting. This process can quickly move from exciting to stressful if you let it. Here’s how to navigate the tricky waters of apartment hunting with your significant other so you can begin your journey as roommates on a loving (and peaceful) note!

1. Pick a location.

Obviously, the location of your new, shared apartment is an extremely important decision. Maybe you both love an area of town and this is a no-brainer. However, there may be some necessary compromising. What if you both want to live as close as possible to your workplaces, but those are on opposite ends of town? An apartment smack dab in the middle might be your best bet. Keep an open mind and figure out a location that will work for both of you.

2. Determine your budget.

First and foremost, talk about rent. Some couples split the rent right down the middle, while others split it in other ways – that’s a matter of your personal financial situations. It is crucial that you and your significant other are both honest and open about how much you are willing and able to spend on rent each month. The living situation will end in disaster if you don’t speak up and end up renting an apartment out of your price range! Once you both have your budgets on the table, you can figure out which apartments are realistic options.

3. Figure out which furniture is coming with you.

Because you’re combining two households, you need to determine what furniture you will each contribute to your new home. For example, decide who has the better (i.e. comfier) bed, and bring that one! Take inventory of what you each have, and figure out which things will come along and which things will be donated or sold. If you need to purchase new items, decide how you’ll pay for them. You may split things 50/50, or you may each be in charge of buying different things.

4. List your “must-haves” in an apartment.

You probably have some things that you absolutely need in your new space. Maybe that’s a washer and dryer in unit, a walk-in closet, a dishwasher, a balcony – whatever! Think long and hard though… what can you really not live without? You’ll probably end up with one, maybe two things. Share those non-negotiables with your partner and listen to theirs as well. Then, you’ll know exactly what you’re looking for as you apartment search.

5. Decide on the other financial logistics.

After all, rent is not the only expense you two will have. Decide how you’ll handle things like your cable, Internet, and utility bills. Same with groceries and other household necessities like toilet paper, laundry detergent, and so on. Maybe you’ll keep it simple and split everything down the middle, or maybe you can delegate expenses. Make sure you have a conversation about it though, because “winging it” is a good way to get into arguments.

Apartment hunting with your significant other doesn’t need to be stressful. By discussing these five big things, you can create a plan and go into the process with a clear idea of what you both want in a living space. When all’s said and done, make sure to tell your landlord where you found them. ApartmentSearch.com is the only national apartment-locating service that pays you for using it – up to $200, in fact! Find your apartment and then use that money to treat yourselves to a lavish date in your brand new city.

8 Signs It’s Time to Move Out of Your Parent’s Basement

Adult son eating breakfast at his parent's house, with parents looking frustrated in the backgroundFor the first time in more than 130 years, adults ages 18-34 are more likely to be living in their parents’ home than they are to be living with a spouse or partner in their own house or apartment, reports Pew Social Trends. Are you one these folks? Check out these 8 (somewhat hilarious) signs it may be time to move out of your parent’s place and into an abode of your own. It’s easier and more affordable than you ever imagined!

1. Your mom can’t sleep without knowing you’re safe in bed.
She’s worried. You said that you would be home around 11 PM and not to wait up, but it’s 11:04 PM and you haven’t responded to her 15 text messages from the past half hour. You could have been kidnapped and she has no reason to believe that you weren’t. Because you AREN’T RESPONDING! Oh no! If it gets to be 11:10 PM, that’s it. The authorities will be called. And you’ll be embarrassed when they show up to your friend’s apartment looking for you, aka the “abducted child.”

2. Your room is straight out of the 90s.
You haven’t redecorated since 1999, and for some reason, you are okay with this. Look…let’s be honest. It’s time to reevaluate. Those blacklight posters are only acceptable for so long and your glow-in-the-dark stars hardly glow anymore. Your neon inflatable couch makes it difficult to relax and having to blow it up more every time someone comes over is, quite frankly, a hassle.

3. Your “private time” isn’t so private.
Everyone needs some alone time, especially if you find a special person with whom you’d like to, dare you say, “Netflix and Chill.” But when dad comes in announcing that he loves this movie, your intimate setting quickly turns into the new venue for popcorn-making and vibe-killing.

4. When it comes to cooking, two’s a party – three’s a crowd.
Your poor parents. Your aunt gave her that “Dinners for Two” book right after you and your siblings were supposed to be gone – yet, there it sits, lonely and gathering dust on the kitchen counter. That’s because your parents aren’t “two.” They’re still “three” and you’re cramping their style. Get out and become a “one” already!

5. Your race car bed has been too short for your legs for years.
It really is still cool. You’re kind of known for it. But, comfort trumps cool, and your legs have been hanging off the end since ‘96. Priorities.

6. Your laundry has stopped doing itself.
Okay, your mom was doing it. But now she’s not. And your room has never been messier. In fact, you’re not even sure how to do laundry, are you? Ask your sweet mama for Laundry 101 and get ready to begin your new life as a grown up. (And then, if you want, eat cereal or candy for dinner. Because after all, you are an adult! Make good choices, kids.)

7. The renovations your parents keep making are the worst alarm clock ever.
The constant hammering never ends. Mom wants a new island constructed in the kitchen and dad’s been waiting for you to leave the basement so that he can turn it into his man cave. Until then, though, he’ll hire a guy to just run a jackhammer outside every morning at eight until you finally give in. (Dad’s very subtle.)

8. Your mom insists that you call her “roomie.”
Oh geez. “Mommy” would almost be better. You’re an adult! Remember?! Though, now that you think of it, Dad is kind of her roomie…which makes you…their…”baby?” Wow. You gotta get outta here.

Though it can seem intimidating, it’s a lot easier (and cheaper) to move out of your parent’s place than you may think. Ever considered leaving the nest for a fully furnished apartment that could be your own, private place? With a company like CORT on your side, you don’t have to worry about the logistics of furniture, boxes, or even a moving van. They handle all of that and more for you. You can even rent linens and decor if you want. All you need to do is show up. (You got this. Set an alarm!)

Now are you ready to take flight, little bird? Check out cheap furnished apartments for rent in your area on ApartmentSearch.com. Select the listing you’re interested in and then click on “Show Me Furnished Apartment Pricing” to see just how affordable moving out of your parent’s place can be.

5 Reasons Furnished Apartments are a Rad Choice for Off-Campus Housing

Blonde college student sitting cross-legged on couch in off campus housing, reading a bookEver moved somewhere, excited to start fresh and eager to explore, only to realize that you need to go…furniture shopping? Bleh. While you may have heard of furnished apartments for corporate travelers and last-minute movers, you may not know that they’re a super smart choice for off-campus housing, too. Dare we say, an A+ option? Check out our five reasons!

1. The savings are epic.

The money you save when renting a furnished apartment is pretty hefty. Just think about it: furnishing every room in the apartment, buying large items that require movers to help, and even decorating the place — the costs add up quickly. With a furnished unit, you won’t have to worry about spending money, or time, on any of that.

2. Your place will look awesome.

When it comes to picking the right decor for your place, the last thing you want is a home that doesn’t feel like one. But sprucing up your walls and putting potpourri in vases isn’t everyone’s favorite thing to do. And if it is, those costs can get, well, costly! With a furnished apartment, you’ll be able to to pick themes and colors of the decor based on your taste (which are guaranteed to change). How easy, peasy and oh so stylish!

3. The process is painless.

No heavy lifting (literally), no last minute posting for people to buy the things you don’t want to move, no packing up fragile items, and best of all, no worrying about not having a bed to sleep on your first night! A furnished apartment is an easy apartment. Not to mention, your friends will thank you for not offering free pizza and beverages in exchange for spending their whole day moving your old furniture.

4. It’s a quick turnaround.

When you rent furniture from CORT, any apartment can be a furnished apartment, even in as little as 48 hours. That’s less time than what you might spend browsing Netflix for your next show to watch. Worth. It.

5. You can’t beat the convenience.

Getting in and out of a place in between summer school, summer fun, and visiting the fam is tough – if it’s your first year off campus, not having to furnish an entire place right off the bat can save you time and moolah. Use both more wisely when you use ApartmentSearch.com to locate an off-campus apartment, and then find out how you can get three rooms of furniture for as little as $119 a month with CORT’s student furniture rental packages.

Taking a Tour? Watch for 3 Types of Model Apartments

Full length rear view of an affectionate couple looking out of window in empty apartmentCongratulations. You’ve been searching for an apartment to rent on ApartmentSearch and discovered three communities that have everything you are looking for. They are all in the same area and generally have the same price and basic amenities. Now, the time has come to tour each and make your final selection. During your apartment tour, each leasing team will take you through a model apartment, one that’s meant to put their best foot forward and help you see that their community is the superior choice. But, not all apartment communities are created equal. and neither are their apartment models. These are the 3 types of apartment models you are likely to encounter.

The Great Empty
Many times, the apartment that you are looking to move into is still occupied by the previous renters who still have a few days left on their lease. Since they have not left yet, you have to see a different apartment to get the basic idea of what yours will look like. In an empty apartment, you get to see the basic layout of the place and some of the interior amenities that you will be able to enjoy. But what about your furniture? How is it going to fit within this space? It is nice to see a unit similar to yours, but nothing beats a representation of the lifestyle you can lead while living there.

Welcome to the Museum
Other models simply “wow” you when you walk in. Tantalizing all of your senses once inside, this model is made to impress — and impress it surely does. Each room has been carefully thought out and shaped by an interior designer. The place looks like it’s right out of a Pottery Barn catalog! And therein lies the challenge. Does anyone else at this apartment community live like this? You are almost scared to touch anything with how nice it all is. Sure, it is great to see the potential of your future apartment, but a “museum” isn’t a true representation of what life in this apartment community is really like.

Just Your Average Digs
When you walk in, you are treated to the smell of…cookies. Chocolate chip, to be exact. The furniture, freshly delivered from CORT, matches your expectations for what you would be spending on rent. Everything is laid out so you can see just how your apartment most likely will look once you move your things in. There is art on the walls and maybe even a rug on the floor. It is warm and inviting, and it makes you feel right at home. It is not glamorous, but it doesn’t have to be. It makes you want to sign a new lease and move right in. This will do nicely.

Of course, first you have to determine the potential apartment community you would like to live at before you can tour an apartment model. There is no better place to start the search than at www.apartmentsearch.com. Discover the most comprehensive listing of apartments for rent across the nation, sorted by the factors that matter most to you. And, when you tell your leasing agent you heard about them using ApartmentSearch, you could even be eligible for up to $200 in rewards. Visit us today and discover your next great apartment home.
