When you’re apartment hunting, you’re thinking about budget specifications, the minimum amount of rooms, the neighborhood and location, and other crucial questions about your potential living space.
However, renters often overlook one of the most important aspects of a potential apartment—the amenities. Creating a checklist of amenity needs will help you think about what you really want to get out of your new home.
For example, if you add a comprehensive, modern fitness center to your amenity checklist, you can alter your budget specifications because you can drop that pricey gym membership fee. Consider an apartment with a pool, and you can toss that season swimming pass too.
You may also have pet-friendly on your radar, but have you considered how important an on-site pet park can be for you and your furry friends? You can save time, money, and make new friends if your apartment boasts amenities for your pets. You’ll even want to consider a parking garage in your checklist. Nothing ruins a great day like searching for a parking spot for hours.
The below infographic by The Village at Commonwealth will help you consider a few critical amenities for your new apartment.
