checklist: apartment hunting

The Suite Life

If you’re planning a move to (or within) LA, we want to make your apartment search a bit easier. No doubt you’ll be checking out multiple places in hopes to find “The One” and in your thorough apartment hunting, sometimes all of the properties can blur together.  We’ve created an Apartment Hunting Checklist so that you can take notes while viewing available apartments to help you remember which ones you liked best later on.

First, be sure to check out the prices for a 1 bedroom and when you start your apartment search and set up appointments, we recommend that you print out a screenshot of the listing and write down the date and time of your appointment at the top of the page as well as who you’ll be meeting with.  Staple this to the front of our checklist so that pictures of the unit will be attached for reference.  The Suite Life - Apartment Hunting Checklist

Our Apartment Hunting Checklist will help you take notes about the basics while also reminding you to ask some important questions while you’re on the tour.  Is there a fee for breaking your lease? What’s the parking situation like?  Is there laundry on-site?  Is the building under rent control? Can you paint?

Comparing your notes over a cup of coffee later on will help you to narrow down your choices to find the perfect place to call home.

  1. Thank you for your advice to print out a screenshot of the listing. I’ve been wondering how to keep all of the apartments that we’re touring straight. I’ll be sure to try this out and see how it works this time around.
