While planning to rent or buy an executive house or an apartment, there are certain things that you need to keep in mind: (1) Not everyone is a legitimate vendor (2) Not every purchase will provide you the value for money. Hence, we’re sharing 6 things that you need to keep in mind to pick the perfect apartment without getting cheated.
1.Be clear with your requirements
Whether you’re a traveler or a local resident looking to rent a fully furnished executive apartment, the first thing is to do is being clear with your needs. You need to know what you seek rather than playing the vagabond game. Depending on the number of people who will be staying with you in that apartment, and the kind of comfort you’re looking for, you’ve to decide the size of your apartment. Moreover, other than the size, be clear with the budget and the number of days you would be renting the apartment for. For the most part, good renters have short term & long term agreements, but there are renters who allow you to rent an apartment with a custom agreement.
2.Check out property rental sites
There are multiple property rental sites which are a good source to lookout for good properties. But, taking necessary precaution is advised because there are fake agents too on such sites. And, the chances of fraud increases when you look at on such sites. Moreover, there are property rental sites which are owned by individual real estate companies, providing a much better platform to search for a good apartment.
3.Decide the location where you need the apartment
Good location matters! If you’re an outsider or a local resident looking to settle in a new place, a good neighbor matters the most. Not everyone treats an outsider or a new occupant the same way that they expect to be treated. Areas are categorized as good or bad for residing depending on certain aspects, one of them is crime rate, and with no doubt at all, people, be it a local person or a traveler, would like to live in a good area. Thus, before showing interest in an apartment, find out about the area.
4.Ask for actual images
Sometimes renter put false images of their property to lure clients. And, just after they receive the payment, things turn out differently. Thus, in order to save yourself from such frauds, ask for actual site images before paying the rental. Consider visiting the site personally.
5.Check if it fits your custom needs
Different people have different custom needs like high-speed internet, connectivity with the transportation options, and a good locality with an access to amenities. Check with your renter to ensure that the apartment meets your internal and external specific needs.
6.Ask for flexibility
Renting an apartment which provides you the flexibility to choose the duration of your lease and bend it according to your need, as per the future requirement, is a blessing in disguise. If you’re a traveler or indulged in a moving job, your stay in a particular area or country can be unpredictable, and you won’t like to get stuck because of the restrictions implied by the leasing agreement. Most renters don’t give you the flexibility to end an agreement when the need is over, either you pay for the whole tenure or you get stuck at the same place. However, there are certain renters who allow you to end the agreement whenever your needs are over without paying the extra, unfair amount.
