Check out our top five tips for first-time renters:

1. Establish Your Surroundings: Starting off in your first apartment can be an extremely novel experience that could make you feel a bit lost. Make sure you get a good grasp of your new neighborhood. Establish nearby grocery stores, restaurants, parks, schools, and anything else that may be relevant to your life.

2. Make the Most out of Your Space: Plan out ahead of time where you plan on putting your furniture. This can help you establish a layout of your new home and prevent clutter from building up. Planning ahead is a great way to minimize the stress of moving into your new home.

Establishing a relationship with your neighbors can help bring a sense of community to your new apartment complex, and can even help you meet some new friends.

4. Become Familiar with Your Community: Take a few strolls through your community to help establish what features your new home has to offer. Find out the location of your community’s office, laundry rooms, pool, mailboxes, gym, and any other applicable amenities.
