We’ve created a free checklist of “must ask” questions while apartment hunting. Simply click this link, and you can download a PDF version to use while looking for the right home.

Questions to Ask

The questions are divided into applicable categories such as “Pre-Visit” and “During the Tour” as well as things to consider while reviewing the lease, and some final thoughts. There are things you should ask yourself like, “Is this home an affordable, practical option?” as well as questions to ask your leasing agent or potential landlord such as “What is included in the utilities?” You also want to use a general sense of discernment while viewing the place and its surrounding area – do you feel comfortable and safe? Can you envision yourself living there?

What to Check While Apartment Hunting

There are also some small things to check like if all the power outlets work, or if the water pressure is lacking. It’s easy to forget things like this when you’re trying to calculate rent costs and feel out the neighborhood. We’ve compiled all the pertinent questions, all you have to do is download the list to reference while searching for or visiting different places.
