New Renters Should Consider:

It’s the first time you’ve chosen where you want to live!  Here’s what to consider:

Is the apartment location or unit size more important?  It’s a common trade-off.
Are you brining a pet?  Do you have to?  It often ups the rent, deposits and fees.
Want a roomie?  You can get a much better apartment for less rent!
Rent should be between 2-3x your month income.
Cosigners are necessary if you don’t have enough income.
Cosigners must make 5-6x rent in monthly income.
What will your commute to be school, work or both?
Do you use public transportation?  Does your apartment need it nearby?

New Renters Shouldn’t Worry About:

First time renters typically worry about the wrong things.  Don’t sweat:

 That you have no rental history.
If you have no income, as long as you have a cosigner.
Little things like finishes.  Layout and location effect your lifestyle most.
Amenities you won’t really use.  Do you really play tennis often?
 Neighborhoods you can’t afford.   You’ll get there; be smart with your $$.
