How do you choose where you’re going to rent an apartment? While part of the process relies on exactly where you can find available spots, if you live in a city like Greater Moncton, chances are there will be plenty to choose from no matter where you look. We’ll discuss some key points to consider while you think about what is most important to you!
You’ve probably heard the expression “location, location, location!” in a number of contexts. It holds especially true when it comes to renting. Are you looking for something centrally located? Or perhaps in a quieter area of town, away from the noise and traffic? Speaking of traffic, this is another major consideration! While Moncton is a smaller city, there are a number of areas that traffic congestion is higher, especially when looking at some of the quickly growing residential areas (ex: some parts of Dieppe, and the North End of Moncton).
While this is very closely tied to location – it’s important enough to talk about on its own. If you have a family, access to schools, parks, etc. becomes significantly more important than it would be for those without children. Additionally, your personal means of transportation can affect this decision quite a bit. You may not be as worried about how close you are to shopping, grocery stores, and pharmacies if you have a vehicle to get around town. If you do not have a vehicle, your access to public transportation becomes a major factor and should and should weigh heavily into your decision about where to look and where to live.
Ultimately, the price of an apartment is probably going to be the biggest influence on your final decision. What you can afford, what additional costs are at play (utilities, internet, etc.), roommate(s), size/number of bedrooms – are all incredibly important. Comparing overall prices with all factors considered is going to help you in figuring out what will work, immensely. Make sure you’re taking every possibly budgetary consideration into account, so you have an exact picture of what you can and can’t manage.
The Apartment Itself
We’ve talked about some very real, tangible things to consider during your selection process. But there is one other important thing to consider. Finding a place that you like and would be happy to call home! This one is more subjective – but not something you should ignore. Without forgetting the considerations above, be sure to take the appropriate amount of time to find an apartment that suits your personal preferences. If you start with a space you love, the little touches you put on it after you move in will make you love it even more!
