Apartment Finder Tips: Ask the Tenants
The first step to better apartment living is to find a good apartment to begin with. It takes a little research, but with some time and some dedication you should be able to find a nice apartment in the Reno/Sparks neighborhood you want. Apartment Genie is a great tool to help you find rentals that are in your price range and in your preferred neighborhoods.
After you have found a place you have your eye, you can find out more about your potential apartment building by speaking to people that already live there. Asking them questions can be really helpful in getting a clear idea of whether you will enjoy living there. Below are some important general questions:
- Do you enjoy living here?
- How quickly does the landlord respond to maintenance requests?
- Are there noise issues?
- Is there anything I should be aware of?
If you are not looking forward to talking face-to-face with tenants, you can leave a note under a few doors or in a few mailboxes. Leave your name, number or email address and let them know that you’re thinking about renting in their building and want to ask them a few questions.
