Apartments for Rent – A Tongue-in-Cheek

Finding apartments for rent can give you a difficult time. (But, with this fun-filled article, I hope to make it fun for you.) If you’re like me, you probably know nothing about what had happened in the apartment before you move your stuff and your duff in. If you’re not careful, you may even get an unwanted bonus in your rented apartment.

“Gee, here’s a nice closet.” And, the moment you open it – “Oops! There’s a skeleton in there!”

Now, this will tell you that it is not that easy to know where to look for that perfect place to live.

For starters, try the classifieds. While they don’t normally give too much details, it is always a good
idea to call the owners or realtors up for a chat. And when you do meet up with a realtor who looks like
the butler in a horror movie – staaaaaay awaaaay!

Sure, that was an easy decision. To keep vampires, ghosts, and kn paradise other things that go bump, remember to bring a few crosses, tons of garlic and of course, holy water.

Another good place to do some research is the Internet. Try apartments.com, rent.com and rentnet.com. For some of these locations, they even have photos to show!

While looking at apartments for rent, be sure to see what amenities are offered with each apartment.
Some communities and buildings offer pools, rooftop decks and exercise facilities. Be sure to check out the security personnel, if any. If they grow fangs, spray holy water on them and shout “Holy cow!”

Remember to check into who will be responsible for the utility bills and if there are parking spots included
with the monthly rent too. Now, if you notice any flickering light or some crazy bloke who talks to himself
in the vicinity, it’s a sure sign that your apartment for rent is going to drive you nuts! So, forget it!

Always check whether there would be any extra cost because what may appear to be an affordable apartment may turn into a cash sucking vampire in no time. Be warned!

Finally, finding apartments for rent can be fun if you know where to look and what to look for. And, of course, if it gives you a hell of a time, it maybe a good idea to forget about shifting out and simply stay home.
