Just as families come in all shapes and sizes, every family has different needs and wants when it comes to finding the perfect place to call home. Whether your family consists of just you and your significant other, or you have a growing family with children at home, we’re sure that with a little effort, you’ll be able to find just the right space for everyone.
When searching for apartments in Brighton, or anywhere else, take the time to discuss your needs ahead of time, create a needs and wants list, and then do your homework. Being prepared, knowing your budget, and deciding which factors are a “must-have” will help make your apartment search that much easier.
Renting an apartment by yourself is pretty easy when you only have your needs to consider. Renting an apartment with a family member, significant other, or children means it will likely take a little more time to find a place that suits all of your needs.
To make your apartment search easier, take some time to sit down and create a list of all of the must-haves. The kids might want a place with a pool, but proximity to their school should take priority. What about the family dog? Pets are family too, so finding a place that is pet-friendly is a must-have if you’re planning to bring your furbaby along.
Budget is a major consideration for most people — especially if you’re planning to grow your family or already have small children. That’s why it's important to establish a budget, and stick to it. By renting within your means, you’ll have the money you need to cover your other expenses without worry.
Once you establish a budget, the next step is to pick a location. Do you want to live in the heart of the city or a quieter, family-friendly neighborhood in the suburbs? Many families choose the latter, but even so, you’ll have plenty of choices. Pick an area that you love and then determine how far away you’re willing to drive to work or to your children’s school to expand your options.
When you start looking at potential apartments, don’t forget to ask a lot of questions. For instance, which utilities and amenities are included? Is there room for parking and does it cost extra? Are pets allowed, and if so, are there number/type exclusions? Gathering as much information upfront will help make your decision that much easier in the end.
