Is it a nice area, what amenities are available, are there community events, is it close to the city or far away (based on your taste), what are extra mandatory fees (parking, valet trash, amenity fee, etc) Biggest items for me in the apt specifically are whether there’s a kitchen island, does it come with a washer/dryer, and is there a standing shower (no bathtubs) Ask about guests — where do they park, how long, do they need parking passes etc. Last thing that comes to mind is once you get the lease — understanding how much it would cost to break the lease in the event you needed to

I have my own washer and dryer! That I love. Hopefully I can find a place with just a hookup

It’s so much fun!!! I’m so excited for you ☺️☺️☺️ I live by myself and honestly, found a place which is close to work and coffee shops/bars! I also chose a building with a doorman, concierge, etc even though it was slightly expensive. The sense of security is higher, IMO

uplifting

Awe!! I’ll be living by myself too. I plan to head to a few places after my softball games 🥺 there is nothing in my city that has a doorman or anything but I’d be ok with a security system

Oh I see!! Good point!!

I always pull up google maps and search the surrounding area for: cafes, restaurants, grocery, pharmacy, post office, vet if you need, dry cleaners, etc. You should know how far you’ll need to travel for regular needs like this, because that can make a big difference. You can also search for a crime map if that’s a concern for you. In the apartment itself, natural light (and the directions it comes from) and storage space are some of the first things I look at.

Idk 🥺

Use the COLA calculator on Nerd Wallet, you can estimate how much it would cost to live in a different city.

Alright so it’s not too much of a change then. Come up with a features list and rank them by priority of what you want. For example, I made it clear to my roommate in unit laundry was something we needed to have.

Why is this a confession??

I’m just asking for recommendations. This is a highly active bowl and I hardly get responses in others. So no, it’s not a confession, but I like getting responses to my questions
