What is an Apartment Hunting Checklist?

A Pre-Rental Checklist is your tool to keep track of the important information when you're searching for a new apartment or home. It's easy to forget details when you're viewing your tenth apartment; make sure you keep track of important questions and variables. Which place had utilities included? Which allowed pets? A Pre-Rental Checklist helps you keep organized and choose the best rental for you. 
Finding a new place is stressful - but you can make it a little easier with a Pre-Rental Checklist. You probably have a few key things you're looking for. Maybe it's a walk-in closet and fitness facility, or maybe you're seeing what kind of move-in incentives landlords are offering. Having all your information in a single document can help ensure you're always asking the right questions and keeping track of the answers. A Pre-Rental Checklist can be your go-to item when you're looking for a new apartment.

When to use a Pre-Rental Checklist:

  • You're looking for a new apartment or house to rent.
  • You want to compare multiple properties.
  • You have specific requirements or questions to ask landlords.
