To help with living expenses most will decide to share their living space with someone else. While all the bills are cut in half, you have to remember your living space will be as well. If you have a tendency to be introverted and have a hard time sharing small spaces with others, a roommate may not be for you. It is good to make a pros and cons list on the situation as well as a budget. Always room with someone you trust and who is reliable with their payments.

Plan Ahead

You should start looking for an apartment months before you plan on moving out. Many apartments require applications to be filled out and background checks to be completed. All of these things take time. You will have to do some research on each apartment you look at. When you rent an apartment you sign a lease and agree to live and pay rent there for a set amount of time. You will want to make sure you will be comfortable living in that particular apartment complex. Once you have decided on an apartment you will need to set up the utilities. While most apartments come with amenities included in the rent you may have to pay for electricity, water, sewage, or internet separately.

Walk Through your Apartment

A walk through in an apartment will usually refer to looking at the apartment for any noticeable flaws from previous tenants. This will often include scratches or marks on the wall, broken appliances, or stains on the carpet. Make sure you have a walk through with your landlord and write down everything you notice. If you don’t do a walk through you could be blamed for damages you didn’t do.

Moving In

To start off on the right foot go through all of your belongings and decide what you should and should not keep. Because you are moving into a smaller space it is a good idea to only take what you will need. Make moving a family affair and invite others to help you. This will make the moving process easier and faster to accomplish.
