Apartment Search Tips

When it comes to renting an apartment in St Louis, you have many choices.

But how do you go about getting an apartment?

First, you must start by making a plan. Make a list of what you are looking for: hardwood floors, dishwasher, parking, specific neighborhood, etc. You may not find everything you desire, but it doesn't hurt to set priorities.

You can narrow your search online, by using our Apartment Search. Once you have narrowed your search and have chosen the apartment(s) that are the best for you, call the resident manager to discuss details.

Schedule an appointment to see the unit(s). Try to see the units in the daytime; it is good to know how much natural light an apartment gets. Do a careful walk-through of any unit you are serious about.

It is always nice to meet the neighbors of any unit you are serious about, as well. Find out if neighbors are friendly, what they like about the building, what they like about the neighborhood, etc.

Do your research ahead of time, so you have a good idea of what your money buys. Be prepared to act quickly when you find something you like; apartments go quickly, especially Barron Realty rental properties.
