We will do our best to work with you to help you find the community, apartment style, and price range that fits you best. You will have your own needs and desires, so as you begin looking for an apartment in Buffalo, take a few of these tips into account. There’s nothing worse than buyer’s remorse, especially when you’ve signed a lease on a brand new home..
Make Sure Your Furniture Will Fit
When you are out hunting for apartments in Buffalo, look over all doorways, stairwells, and other entryways to ensure you can get your big couch or king size box spring IN the apartment. You don’t want to be sitting on the floor crying over the fact that you have to sell your leather couch on craigslist.
Test Out the Shower
Water pressure is key. Make sure the shower and/or bathtub is adequate for all your bathing needs.
Ask About the Smoking Policy
For non-smokers, you don’t want to live above someone smoking a pack a day. For those of you who smoke, you want to know where the designated areas are, and that you don’t have to worry about that pesky neighbor above you yelling at you from their window about smoking.
Check Out the Area at Night
Buffalo has come a long way in the last decade, but that doesn’t mean safety at night is guaranteed. So much of the city is off street parking, so odds are you’re going to be walking at night. Do a little lap around the neighborhood by to see if you feel comfortable. If you feel like you have to lock your doors, maybe this isn’t the right neighborhood for you.
Use Your Friends
Sure, this might not be the biggest change in your friends’ lives, but it certainly will be momentous for you! This is not only your new home, but their place to visit you. When you start looking at lofts or apartment complexes around Buffalo, enlist the help of a friend for a second opinion. Let all your constituency know you’re looking too, they might end up finding your next apartment for you. Afterall, once you do find a new apartment, you’re going to have to ask them to help you move, so you might as well make them a part of the process now..
