Apartment For Your Budget

Searching for an apartment for rent in Toronto can be a frustrating

and stressful task, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be the nightmare

experience that people make it out to be. With a little bit of

organization and planning, you can find your ideal apartment for your

budget within a reasonable amount of time.

Here is a comprehensive guide to finding a great apartment for rent

within your budget that meets your needs:

Decide how much you want to spend.

It’s all too easy to overlook your budget when you are enchanted by a

beautiful apartment, particularly when you are viewing the space in

person. This is why you need to set an appropriate budget from the

start, well before you even begin to view any apartments.

Take some time to crunch the numbers and figure out how much rent

you can afford per month. You should take into consideration all of

your recurring expenses including groceries, utilities, parking,

cellphone, Internet and/or cable, entertainment, etc. If you are

struggling to find apartments for rent within your budget, you may

want to consider bringing in a roommate. In the end, establishing a

price range will ensure that you don’t run into a desperate situation

where you are eating nothing but instant ramen noodles every night

just to make rent.

Decide what features you need.

Before you even begin browsing the listings of apartments/condos for

rent, make a list of all the things you are looking for in a place. This

includes ideal neighborhoods you wish to live in, the number of

bedrooms and bathrooms, the square footage, and specific amenities.

You should then organize this list into three key categories: must-

haves; nice to have, but can do without; and dream apartment

features.

Narrow down your search.

Visiting every apartment rental you are interested in can not only be

time-consuming; it can be entirely unnecessary. This is why it is

important to narrow down your search to a handful of apartments

that seem to stand above the rest of the online listings you have seen.

Schedule an in-person viewing for these choices to save time.

Stay on top of things.

When you have looked at several apartment rentals, it might be hard

to tell one from the other. This is why it is imperative to keep track of

any key details, such as the amenities, rental rates, security deposit

amounts, and contact information or things can quickly get stressful.

One option to help you get organized is to make a spreadsheet. But

perhaps the more efficient option would be to use CirclApp’s desktop

and mobile platform. The centralized platform combines the benefits

of a property listings site, a tenant-landlord management system, and

a contractor marketplace for a fully transparent, verified, and

accessible experience.

Look at places with roommate(s)

If you’re going to be sharing accommodations with one or two

roommates, you should invite them along to any viewings you

schedule. After each viewing, you can discuss it together and what

you like and don’t like about the place. This will save you both some

time and unnecessary stress, ensuring that you are both on the same

page in finding the ideal home.

Inquire about discounts

This is one of those things that the majority of people don’t even

consider, but it may surprise you that sometimes landlords offer

special deals or discounts based on the move-in date. For example, a

landlord may offer your first month free on the condition that you sign

a longer lease. Either way, asking for a discount never hurts to ask.

Determine utility costs

So you have found your ideal home and are eager to sign the lease. But

before you do, be sure to find out what the average utility costs are for

the apartment rental. Failure to factor in this expense can come back

to haunt you as utilities can be a significant added cost.

Don’t be afraid to negotiate

Even if you have found the perfect place and you are sure you want to

take it, you should still make an effort to negotiate with the landlord

on the price. Let the landlord know that you are considering a few

other options and that will give you some extra leverage in knocking

off a few dollars off the monthly rent.

In the end, a lot of finding an ideal rental home is about trial and error.

We are all prone to making mistakes here and there, especially when

we are inexperienced. All of these things can make apartment hunting

stressful at times, particularly if you are working with a tight timeline.

But if you follow the aforementioned steps and stay organized, you

are sure to have success.
