Reduce the Stress Of Apartment Hunting

Moving is one of the most stressful experiences and if you are unprepared you can also cause unnecessary anxiety.  Heading towards a fresh start in a new apartment home should be fun and exciting when you are prepared and do not procrastinate in your search. To help eliminate the stress, nail down the answers to these three questions before you start your next apartment search.


What part of town are you interested in?
Do you want to live close to work or in a part of town with better schools? Know what your needs and want are in a neighborhood.


How much can you afford in rent?
According to industry experts, rent should not exceed 30% of your paycheck. Set a budget and stick to it!


What do you actually NEED?
Create a "must-have" list. Determine how much space you need in your new apartment home. Are you moving in with a roommate or is it just you? Do you need access to a fitness gym or parking garage? These factors play a role in what size home you need and how much it is going to cost you.

So when should you start your search? Our experts suggest beginning the apartment hunt before you even put in your 30-day notice with your current landlord.
