APARTMENT HUNTING-May 26, 2013 Here is a blend of what goes on today.
First you have people looking to rent by June 1st. And by now you think they would have found something right? They think after seeing something that is updated & priced right that they have all the time in the World. Plenty of others to see right? WRONG!
IF YOU SEE A MODERN APARTMENT & PRICED RIGHT YOU CAN NOT TAKE MORE THAN 24 HOURS LET ALONE TELLING A LANDLORD I WILL LET YOU KNOW NEXT WEEK! ONCE A LANDLORD HEARS THAT YOUR OUT AND THE FIRST ONE THAT COMES WITH MONEY GETS IT!
Next you got Landlords that have two bedrooms, on 1st.floor, offer use of yard, with rent of $1800 Heat Electric to pay, but they want a couple only????????
***THE MOST DIFICULT TASK IS A FAMILY OF TWO ADULTS, 3KIDS, & A DOG!!!!!!!!!!
BETTER OFF PLAYING LOTTO! LESS THAN 5% ALLOW DOGS, WHICH LIMITS YOU TO POTENTIALLY 12 APARTMENTS DURING THE COURSE OF AN ENTIRE YEAR! INCLUDING 1,2,3BEDS. APARTMENTS
FROM 1 OUT OF 20 HAD DOGS TO TODAY 1 OUT OF THREE PEOPLE HAVE DOGS!!!!
SOME LANDLORDS REQUIRING ADDITIONAL SECURITY IF AND I MEAN IF THEY TAKE YOUR DOG!!!
******SITES TO STAY AWAY FROM WHEN SEARCHING FOR AN APARTMENT!
CRAIGSLIST,NY-TOO MUCH COMPETITION, LANDLORDS ADVERTISE THEIR PLACES WITH WATERBUGS/MICE/ETC.. AND INCLUDING HIGH RENTS. LASTLY YOU WILL BE ONE OF AT LEAST A DOZEN BEING CONSIDERED!
SUGGESTION: LOOK AT HOT PADS-BARZARYNKA, TRULIA ETC.
WORK WITH REALTORS WHO GET MANY LISTINGS, AND WILL NOT WASTE YOUR TIME.
LANDLORDS HOLD ALL THE CARDS, THEY CALL THE SHOTS, AND THEY PICK WHOM THEY WANT.
THE HARDEST THING YOU'LL EVER HAVE TO EXPERIENCE TODAY! FINDING AN APARTMENT!
THE PUBLIC ADVOCATE!
