Questions To Ask Your Apartment Hunter

With nearly 43,000 apartments currently being built in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, finding the perfect apartment can seem impossible. However, as your apartment hunter, Uptown Apartment Locators sets out to find you an apartment home that checks off all, or nearly all, of the boxes on your “must-have” list. Doing so saves you time and headache, in addition to landing you excellent deals on top apartments.

As your apartment hunter, we’d recommend that you come up with a standard list of questions to ask yourself when considering an apartment. This will help you quickly narrow down your list of options in order to pin-point the apartments that you’ll want us to take you to tour! Here are a few important questions that we think should be at the top of your list:

How Long Will My Commute Be?

This is one of the first questions you should ask about an apartment, especially if you are working with an apartment hunter in Dallas. The amount of time you are spending in your car each day going to and from work can play a significant role in whether or not you enjoy where you live. When you find an apartment that you think might work from the options we’ve provided you, take a moment to pull up Google Maps and type in your work address. Make sure that the estimated commute time is an amount you are willing to spend on the road each and every day. If not, our team can help you find an apartment that is even closer to your workplace!

What is the Apartment Complex’s Guest Policy?

If you are the type of person who loves to entertain, make sure that the apartment complex you are considering is guest-friendly! No guest wants to leave your place, only to find that their car was towed away. Make sure the complex you choose to live in provides guest parking. Plus, you may want to check and see if there is limit on the number of guests you can bring with you to use the apartment’s amenities. For example, some complexes will limit you to two guests when visiting the community’s pool. Asking your apartment hunter to consider these details now when providing you with apartment options will save you the headache of having to deal with frustrated guests later.

Can I Have a Pet in the Apartment?

Before signing your lease, be sure to ask your apartment hunter about the complex’s pet policy. A large majority of apartments in Dallas are pet-friendly. However, some apartment complexes are very particular about which pets they do and do not allow. If you are unsure about whether or not your pet will meet the apartment complex’s pet policy, ask your UAL agent to find out more details! We want you and your pet to be able to fully enjoy all of the benefits that your new apartment has to offer!
