The Top 6 Things To Look For When Apartment Hunting

  |     |   Los Angeles Rental Guides

There's no need to dread apartment hunting. With the right tools in your arsenal, it can be a breeze. Here are the top 5 things you'll want to look for when searching for your new luxury apartment home. Happy hunting!

Location – Be sure to consider your location carefully. The perfect apartment can quickly become less desirable if it's located in a bad neighborhood. So, ask yourself some questions before you start your search. What are your priorities when it comes to location? Do you need to be close to work or public transportation? Is security a top priority for you? Or is proximity to restaurants and nightlife more important? Once you know what's important to you, it will be easier to narrow down your search.  

How many bedrooms/bathrooms are included – When shopping for the perfect apartment, be sure to consider how many bedrooms and bathrooms you’ll need. As you start looking at different properties, imagine yourself living there and which amenities would be most important to you. From co-living suites to 2-bedroom apartments, NMS West Hills has a great selection of floor plans and we’re confident that you will find the right one for your needs.

Amenities – When it comes to apartment hunting, there are a number of amenities you should keep in mind. Amenities can make all the difference between an enjoyable place to live and one you dread coming home to each day. For example, at NMS West Hills, we have amenities like an on-site pool with spa area for relaxation after work hours; on-site laundry facilities so that residents always have access to clean clothes no matter where they are; on-site maintenance personnel who will provide assistance if something goes wrong in your unit – not just during business hours. We want our residents to feel comfortable.

Utilities – Who has to foot the bill for utilities? Utilities are an often overlooked but crucial element of apartment hunting. Before you settle on a particular unit, consider who will pay for what. If water, gas, and electricity are included in your monthly rent, this is obviously one less expense you'll have to shoulder each month.

Furnishings - So, you've finally found an apartment that checks all of your boxes: location, amenities and utilities – but the furniture is a little dated. No problem! This is where we here at NMS West Hills can really help you out. We're proud to offer our residents fully furnished apartments so that they don't need to worry about buying any extra pieces. From the bed frame to the couch, you'll find all of your furniture waiting for you upon moving in.

Cost-to-value ratio (rent vs amenities) - When you’re looking to find the best value for your money in a rental property, make sure that you take into account not only the cost of rent but also all the things included with it. For example, NMS West Hills offers co-living apartments where residents share a living space and kitchen area, reducing the cost of rent. This can be an amazing opportunity for those who want the benefit of having extra amenities like on-site laundry and gourmet kitchen spaces without paying full price. Each co-living suite comes fully furnished with cable, wifi and utilities included – providing an unbeatable combination of luxury amenities and cost-effective living.  

With the right tools in your arsenal, apartment hunting can be a breeze. These tips and tricks will keep you ahead of the game when searching for that perfect apartment in Los Angeles.
