- Location, Location, Location – You can probably decorate the apartment to your liking but ask yourself can I live with the location. Is it near my school, shopping, my job and busing? Convenient to restaurants and the Interstate for traveling? Is there anything I like about the location? If not, keep looking and ask the landlord/agent if they have more options.
- Apartments with heat included can sometimes be the better deal and this way you can pinpoint your budget a little bit better for all the seasons in Vermont.
- General condition, if the apartment is not clean at time of viewing. Ask the landlord/agent what will be cleaned and what will be painted. Will any flooring be cleaned/shampooed or replaced such as carpeting? Add these details to your lease prior to signing.
- Does the property offer good outside lighting in the evening? Safety should always be taken into consideration.
- Is there any off-street parking? Worth it’s weight in gold when the parking ban lights are on in the City of Burlington.
- Are the landlord(s) and/or management teams experienced?
- Is there is a maintenance person/crew for repairs?
- Are the rooms big enough for your furniture and personal items? Not sure, take measurements.
- If you’re into sunshine, figure out which rooms have the best sun exposure.
