Tips & Considerations For Renting
It’s always best to begin with your ideal situation and then be flexible to find the right fit. Some things you are going to want to have in mind prior to starting your search include:
- Location: Especially in Greeley, do you want or need to live close to campus? Do you want to live near shopping, K-12 schools, or recreation? Does the neighborhood fit your lifestyle (student or children-friendly)?
- Cost: Are confident with your monthly budget and what can you spend on rent? Have you considered “hidden” costs that may or may not be included in the lease terms (utilities, cable/internet, renter’s insurance, water, garbage service)?
- Amenities & Size: What size apartment do you want (bedrooms and bathrooms) and what amenities do you want in the space (washer/dryer, A/C, dishwasher, furnishings, etc.)?
- Condition of Unit/Complex/Neighborhood: Have you toured the complex, unit, or spent time in the neighborhood to see “what’s around"?
