Imagine you’re on a tour in what could be your new apartment and the leasing agent turns to you and asks “Do you have any questions?”.
Before shaking your head no and hoping for the best, STOP. It’s important to ask questions and make sure you understand everything about the complex you’re considering moving into.
Don’t be afraid to jump right into it, the leasing agent is more than prepared to answer any question you could have. And if your parents are with you don’t be embarrassed when they bombard the tour guide with questions. I promise you’ll be thankful that they asked if cable is included when it comes time to set up your T.V.
As for if you’re touring alone, there are thousands of questions that you can ask. However the most important three are, how long is the lease? What utilities are included? And if none are, what does the average utility bill look like?
Money can be a hard subject to dive into but it is one of the most important ones, if not the most important. Make sure you understand every aspect of what makes up the lease before you sign and are responsible for making payments. This is especially important if your parents are helping you with rent because they will be liable as well.
Now let’s start over, imagine you’re on a tour in what could be your new apartment and the leasing agent turns to you and asks “Do you have any questions?”.
