The Dos and Don’ts of Renting Your First Home

how-to-rent-your-first-apartment-2-768x512Renting a property isn’t always as straightforward as you might think, and there are several important considerations when starting your search for somewhere to live. Some dos and don’ts are worth observing:

Don’t rush – it’s tempting to jump at the chance of renting a property you really like the look of, but take your time and go through the following dos and don’ts carefully.

Do check the location is right for you – is the property in the best location to meet your needs? How close is it to your workplace? How good are transport links? Are the amenities you desire within easy reach?

Research the neighborhood as far as you can. Use a map resource such as this one to start, then ideally visit it and take a thorough look round and check out the whereabouts of amenities.

Do set a budget – rentals obviously vary by type of property, location and by specific area. You may have to budget for higher rentals if you have to – or simply want to – live in a specific part of the country. For example, San Francisco or New York would be at the higher end of the scale.

To get a feel for rentals by area and types of property available check out online resources. For example, if you’re looking in the Houston area you can use a resource such as ForRent to search for suitable properties in this thriving Texan city.
