Reno Apartment Guide: Finding an apartment on a budget

Exterior 2Before you go out to begin looking for an apartment, you should determine how much rent you can comfortably pay. Below are some tips to help you search for a Reno apartment on a budget.

Generally, your rent should be no more than 30 percent of your income. Keep in mind your other expenses and debt payments when making this calculation. You should be able to cover most of your daily living expenses (groceries, utilities, eating out and entertainment) on about twenty five percent of your income. Take time to look at your budget, before you start looking for your apartment. If you have limited funds and are finding it difficult to find a budget friendly apartment, you may want to consider getting a roommate to share expenses.

Once you know what you’re looking for and how much you can afford, start searching for apartments. Use Reno apartment finder sites like Apartment Genie to contact properties that seem like a good fit to set up appointments for tours.
