This is a turning point in your life and making well balanced decisions are crucial. Now it’s time to find your first real apartment, here are a few tips.
Live Within Reason
Figure out how much you can spend is better than stressing out over how you are going to make your next payment. It’s also important to feel safe within your neighborhood. Researching your community is always a good idea before you dive in.
Don’t Go It Alone
College is about learning and sharing your apartment with roommates isn’t a bad idea. Going forward with this approach may mean you can move into a nicer apartment than you could if you were living by yourself.
Choose Apartment Amenities Wisely
Before you start your apartment search, it’s important to know which amenities you are willing to compromise on. Some common areas to consider are laundry, dishwasher, storage, parking, fitness center and that dreamy ocean view balcony.
