If you are thinking of renting a luxury apartment, you are making a great choice. Luxury apartments tend to come with amenities your typical apartment building doesn't have. They are usually found in some of the best locations in a neighborhood too. However, there might be additional fees for certain things you might take for granted in a regular apartment building or other surprises you weren't expecting.
Here are a few questions to ask your real estate agent when you are looking for a luxury apartment rental.
Are The Amenities Included In The Rental Or Extra?
The majority of luxury apartment rentals come with amenities for you to enjoy. For example, many have gyms or a spa. The most common feature you will find in a luxury apartment is a pool. For the most part, the price of using these amenities is included in the rental fee, but there are some buildings in which these amenities are an extra charge.
You need to ask your real estate agent or building manager if the amenities are extra or if they are included in your rental price.
What Is The Storage Space Like?
While most condos have extra storage space for your clothes or knickknacks that you won't want cluttering up the space, rental apartments don't always have a lot of extra storage space. This includes luxury apartments that were recently built.
Ask your real estate agent or building manager what the storage space is like there. Does the apartment itself have ample space to store items? You can check that out when doing a walkthrough before renting it. Or, does the building have its own lockers or storage space in a designated area of the building?
If you have a lot of items, it's a good idea if that apartment has space for them.
Is The Location Convenient?
When you are looking to rent a luxury apartment, location is an important part of the overall picture. Many luxury apartments are located either downtown for the convenience of professionals who work in the offices nearby, or they are located outside the city limits for more peace and quiet for the tenants.
If you are unfamiliar with the city or town, then ask if the location is convenient for you. You can inform your real estate agent or building manager of what you need in the location so they can guide you. Do you drive? Then a building further away from the bustle of the city might be in order. If you take transit, you might want a bus stop within walking distance.
