If you are looking for apartments in Lafayette, La. and don’t know where to begin read on and discover how making a list will help you find the space of your dreams.
Lists are made for all types of things. There are grocery lists, vacation packing lists, party planning lists, and bucket lists of things that a person wants to do before their life is over. Making a list to help you find the apartment of your dreams may sound unnecessary but it can help you focus on the things that are truly important to you that you may not have realized until you wrote it down.
Start with some basics to write your list. Type it into your phone so it will be with you if someone is helping you in your search include them in the list-making process, gather around a laptop or go old-school with pen and paper. It doesn’t matter how you write it down, just that you do.
Brainstorm everything that you want in an apartment. You may think things like adequate parking for everyone in the complex is a given but when you start looking at spaces you may find that isn’t always the case. Don’t judge the list yet. Just write down everything you can think of that you would like to find in an apartment.
Here are a few things that make most lists: the number of bedrooms needed, the number of bedrooms desired, number of parking spaces needed, whether the unit can be upstairs or downstairs, does the apartment allow pets, how much are deposits, am I okay with neighbors with children, do I want to live in a gated community and is the location suited to the type of commute I am willing to make to work or school?
Some things that also might make your list: is their great food delivery in this area, is cable/internet connection possible or included, what type of lease will I have to sign and am I willing to sign one for the length of time required, and can I walk around this neighborhood safely?
Once you have a list, you will probably have around 25-50 things to consider. Now is the time to re-read your list and make three categories: must-haves, would like to have, not necessary (but would be nice). These columns distributed by the level of need and want will help you quickly narrow down your search.
With your list in hand start looking at spaces where you are considering making your home. Be brutal. If it has 4 of your must-haves but not all 7, keep looking. Does it have all your must-haves, but only a few of your like to haves? Make notes and go on to the next place.
Starting your search online is a great way to eliminate places you won’t need to see in person. So, you’ve narrowed it down to a few places or your list helped you find the one place that has the things you wanted. Sign your lease, pay your deposits, and make a list of things you’ll need to do before you move.
