How easy can renting an apartment be? Just a piece of cake, right? Wrong. There are many aspects and factors that should be considered before renting an apartment. Many people make the mistake of renting a place they regret living in, and since many arrangements for apartments require you to pay upfront in advance and have to stay for a set number of months, many can't just leave and just charge the whole thing to experience. But when you think of it, it's pretty easy to be able to avoid this kind of situation.
For one, it is important that you consider the location of the place. Is your apartment building in a good neighborhood? What are your impressions of the other tenants - you can do a visit first and see what you think. Don't just look at the physical condition of the apartment itself - which the most obvious and the only aspect people usually notice - and look for things such as the fire escape, accessibility, and so on. Also try to anticipate any situations that may arise based on your lifestyle and preferences that may clash with the landlord / super's rules. You can also look at online reviews for different apartments and see which one you like best and fits your needs better.
