5 Do's and Don'ts in Searching for a New Flat

There are lots of mistakes you can make when searching for a new flat. Keep the following list of Do’s and Don’ts in mind when renting a new apartment.

1. Don’t Go Over Your Budget

You’re always going to want more of something when you are looking at Greensboro apartments, whether it is more space, a better layout, or something a little more updated. The hard part is deciding which things are the most important to you and are actually realistic for your budget. It’s important to have a price in mind before looking for a new apartment—that way you don’t look at things you can’t afford.

2. Do Negotiate the Price

Just because the rent of an apartment is listed for a certain price does not mean that there is no wiggle room. You may be able to negotiate a better rate. Sometimes the landlord may also be willing to throw in incentives to get you to move in, such as a discount on the first month’s rent. You’ll never know what discounts you can get without asking.
