The best way to find an apartment in Phoenix is to create a good strategy for doing so. The strategy you come up with should deal with what you are trying to get out of the apartment search.
A person looking to find his dream apartment requires a different strategy from a person looking to find an apartment as soon as possible. If you are in the latter position, we have some tips for you.
How to Find Apartments Quickly
Know what you want
Before even searching for an apartment have an idea of what you need and/or want and stick to it. Do not budge on any part of your decision unless necessary. Make sure to at least have an idea on the following.
- How many bedrooms you will need
- How many bathrooms you will need
- The square footage you can work with
- What areas of the city you are willing to relocate to
- What you can afford
Take detailed notes
When looking at multiple apartments, especially all in a short period of time, it can be easy to mix them up. To avoid choosing the wrong apartment, take detailed notes, pictures, and videos.
You can take pictures on your phone and attach information to it such as the name of location and such to keep better track of each apartment.
Ask your friends, family, coworkers and acquaintances for recommendations
Friends and family often know of an available apartment or two and if you are lucky they might know of an apartment in their building or area that hasn’t even been listed making it a less competitive choice.
Use an apartment hunting app
Using an app can broaden the search pool, especially if you are willing to relocate to other parts of town. Plus, they are easy to use during any bits of free time. You can continue your apartment search during a coffee break or while you wait in the checkout line.
Check out apartments online
Though virtual tours are not enough, they can be quite helpful at eliminating possible apartments from the lists. You can use virtual tours to take a quick peek and decide if the apartment is worth a visit in person.
Hunt during the week not weekend
By visiting the apartments during the week you will most likely avoid dealing with other people taking a look at the place. When it comes to gated communities, you also avoid the hassle of finding someone to let you in if the porter is not on site.
