What to Look For in a Rental Apartment

When choosing a rental apartment there’s tons of floor plans to choose from, but what should you really be looking for? We’ve compiled a list of the top things you should consider when looking for an apartment to rent, to hopefully make your search a little bit easier.

Location – The location of your apartment is key. You want to make sure you’re close to work, close to friends and family and close to the amenities you are accustomed to. Another thing to consider is the environment. Do you like to be close to dining and shopping or a little closer to nature? Maybe a happy medium?

Price – Finding an apartment in your price range is super important. You don’t want to overpay and have no money leftover for the things you enjoy in life. Your budget might also determine the size of your apartment home. 

Amenities – Amenities are perks that are built into the cost of your rent and can be a huge bonus when renting an apartment. Things like fitness centers, pools and outdoor grilling areas are not only fun to enjoy to use, but can save you money!

Community – Living in an apartment community means you have potential new friends super close by. Things like resident events will help you meet your neighbors and get to know the community a little more while amenities like dog parks or community gardens are great for socializing. 

Layout – Apartment floor plans and layout are a big thing to take note of. Maybe entertaining is important to you, so you need a large living area and balcony. Maybe you want a walk-in closet or a spare bathroom. Ask to see all floor plan options so you can choose the one that best fits you. 

Pet Policy – If you have a furry friend or hope to get one in the future, it’s important to find a pet friendly apartment community. Read over the pet policy to make sure your four legged companion is welcome and able to enjoy your new home!

Quality – You might be able to find a dirt cheap place to live but are you really getting a quality home? Quality appliances, finishes and amenities will really help your rental apartment feel like a home. 

Our goal is to make you feel like family during your stay with us – however long that may be! If you need more information, call or email us today at 251-626-0234 or eastbay@tonsmeireproperties.com.

What Our Residents Have To Say

It’s a very quiet apartment complex. The pool is really nice. They have a puppy park. The pier is awesome to fish on. I’ve caught a huge black drum and several red fish from it.

They are quick to do any repairs; easy online rental payment. The bedrooms are really good size with washer/dryer hookups. Plenty of kitchen cabinet space. They put new vinyl plank floors down everywhere but the bedrooms, which is nice as I hate so much carpet. It’s a lot of space for an apartment – the most I’ve ever had. Highly recommend it as it’s a great location to I-10, Walmart, and it’s right off 98..

If I ever had to live in an apartment again I would go back to East Bay. I had zero issues while living there and we lived there for 1 1/2 years.
