Finding a new apartment can be a hassle. Many people recommend going to an area where you would like to live and looking for “For Rent” signs. That’s one way to do it, but in the age of the Internet, you can save time, gas, and shoe leather.
A simple way to start an apartment hunt is to go on Craigslist, click on your city, neighborhood, and the type of rental you’re looking for. Many landlords advertise their rental properties on Craigslist, often with pictures. But there are other search engines on the web that may better suit your needs. With them, you can find things like floor plans, maps, lease information, whether utilities are included, cost, and more. Some even allow you to start the renting process online.
The following are popular websites dedicated to finding you a new crib:
WalkScore.com is a particularly interesting website that allows you to search for an apartment based on your interests. You can find out about things about an apartment’s neighborhood in terms of nearby restaurants, entertainment, grocery stores, schools, and more. WalkScore.com gives scores to cities and neighborhoods for things such as “Bike Friendliness” or “Transit Friendliness.”
Moving can involve a lot of hassles. Sometimes the apartment you want won’t be ready for a while, but you have to move out of your current place immediately. You can crash with friends for a few weeks, but what about all your stuff?
