Before signing a lease, renter’s insurance brand, Protect Your Bubble, shares a list of questions consumers should ask themselves.
ATLANTA, Ga. (PRWEB) April 04, 2013
Spring is known for being a busy time of year as landlords and leasing offices gear up for the rush of apartment seekers. The temperate weather in springtime makes it a great time of year to move, but it’s also nice because there are many enticing deals available. But before signing a lease, renter’s insurance brand, Protect Your Bubble, shares a list of questions consumers should ask themselves.
1. Did I inspect the unit very carefully?
If possible, it’s a good idea for consumers to see the exact unit they’d be living in. This way, they can inspect the unit and look for things like mold, bugs, stains, off-putting smells, and so on. People should remember to look carefully because once the lease is signed; it’s tough to go back.
2. Is the neighborhood safe?
A person’s home should be their refuge. It’s important to do some research on the surrounding areas so that the renter will feel safe at all times of the day and night. Anyone unfamiliar with the neighborhood should contact the police department and ask for a crime report to get a better understanding.
3. Can I really afford this?
It’s important to carefully plan out the expenses associated with the home each month. Things to factor in are monthly expenses outside of housing costs (ex. gym memberships, daycare, groceries, entertainment, and savings) rent, utilities, commuter toll fees, gas mileage to work). Once this has been sorted out, consumers should ask themselves: “Can I really afford this?” If so, then sign that lease!
4. Should I get renter’s insurance?
Once consumers find the right apartment, it’s important to consider renter’s insurance.
