Here’s a loft, there’s a loft, everywhere is lofts and more lofts! Ever since the Jeffersons moved on up to that deluxe apartment in the sky, it seems that everyone wants to find lofts for rent.
However, finding lofts and apartments that fit within your budget and have all the amenities you need can be difficult at times. Between scouring apartment listings both in print and online, to meeting with landlords, to determining what are your must-haves, finding the best loft apartments for rent takes a little work.
Luckily however, there are a few things you can do expedite the process and find the apartment of your dreams. Here are just a few things to keep in mind.
Give them something to talk about
The more people that know you’re looking for an apartment, the greater your chances of being able to find lofts for rent that meet your specific criteria. So get talking! Tell your family members, friends, co-workers, and social media contacts that you’re in the process of finding an apartment. There’s a good possibility someone knows someone else who knows something about an apartment that might be right up your alley.
Not all apartment postings are created equal, so proceed browsing with caution. There are several red flags to look out for, including outdated pictures, vague apartment descriptions that seem a bit too salesy, and of course, prices that are too good to be true. A word of advice, if it seems too good to be true, it most likely is!
Take a look
After managing to find loft apartments you’re interested in seeing, it’s important to come to the viewing prepared with a list of questions and concerns. It may also be a good idea to have a family member (thanks Mom) or friend tag along for good measure. They may think of a question or notice a problem area you would have otherwise overlooked.
