Apartment Hunting Checklists for Atlanta Apartments

After you contact the leasing offices to schedule some tours of Atlanta apartments for rent start planning your inspection of the floor plans and the apartment communities you will visit. Create a checklist of things you are looking for while you’re apartment hunting. You should personalize your apartment search checklist according to your own needs and wants, but make sure your list includes all the following items.

On your first visit to any Atlanta apartments it’s important to remember your tape measure. Jot down the measurements of all the rooms especially the living room, dining area and bedrooms to make sure your furniture will fit comfortably whether it’s a townhouse or an apartment home. Make note of where the cable and phone hook-ups are located. If the leasing specialist shows you a model apartment remember to ask if your floor plan will be exactly the same.

Meet some of your future neighbors while on your initial visit to the Atlanta apartments you will tour. Ask them questions about surrounding neighborhood. This is a great way to get sense of the community.

Remember to ask the leasing agent all your questions. Some good ones include:

  • Does the rent include utilities? Which ones?
  • Is painting allowed? If I paint, what do I need to do if I move-out?
  • In addition to rent, what are the other move-in fees like deposits, pet deposits, pet rent and administrative fees?

Because the current tenants may still reside in the actual units during your first visits to Atlanta apartments they may not be ready to view. That’s OK! Before you sign the lease you should do a thorough walk-through inspection of the apartment you’ve selected. Inspect the inside of closets and cabinets ensuring each door works properly while looking for signs of pests and mold. Record your concerns on the move-in inspection form so the leasing specialist can create work orders for any repairs that may be required.

Apartment Housewarming Party

Not long after you move into your new Atlanta apartment you will be ready to host a housewarming party. Don’t wait too long so the apartment will still feel like a new place. There are a few things you can do to ensure your party is fun for not only your guests, but also for you.

First, remember to invite your neighbors. Getting to know the other residents helps build the apartment community. Also the invitation, whether delivered in person or in writing, tells your neighbors why you have so many guests right after you move in. If the other apartment residents do not attend, be respectful and keep your party to reasonable hours. Follow the rules set up by the on-site management team.

Next, be sure to keep it simple. Save time and money by keeping the affair casual. Provide some light snacks. If you want to keep people from being in and out of your fridge all night, fill one half of your kitchen sink with ice and place cold beverages in there. Instead of trying to have everyone’s favorite, pre-mix a couple different drinks. Just stir and pour over ice as people want them. This keeps the party cheap and cuts down on cleaning your apartment the next day.

Then make sure guests have see all your rooms. A housewarming is the one party when all of your guests should be checking out the spacious bedroom and walk-in closet of your apartment rental. You and everyone else will feel more comfortable if the place is clean and you have hidden all your old embarrassing childhood photos.

Finally, prepare a soundtrack in advance. Great music sets the tone for the entire party. Make a mix that will not over take the conversation. Choose beats that turn your apartment into a dance club if you want, but don’t forget your neighbors! Burn copies of the music for each guest to take home. It will be a great souvenir from your amazing Atlanta apartment.

JAMCO Properties, Inc. invites you to make your next housewarming party at one of our 20 affordable metro Atlanta apartment communities.

Atlanta Apartments, get to know your neighbors

Meeting your neighbors in the apartment community is not as simple as it once was. Residents in Atlanta apartments have changed with the times. But getting to know your neighbors is not only fun, it is smart. People are busy, so here are few ideas for turning your Atlanta apartment complex into a real community.

Nothing brings people together like free drinks and snacks. Throw a party and invite all your neighbors. Even if only a few people attend, going door to door with an invitation puts a name to your face. Maybe the apartments feature a barbeque grill amenity you can use or supply your guests with plenty of home baked goods and other goodies neighbors might share.

Man’s best friend can help you meet new people too. Pet friendly Atlanta apartments bring animal lovers together. Walking your dog at the same times as your neighbors helps you socialize with other renters that have the same interest as you! And if Fido ever escapes, your neighbors will know where to return him.

Garage or yard sales are not just for single family homes. Organize a multi-family yard sale in your Atlanta apartment community or nearby. Make room in your spacious closet, a little cash and new friends all at the same time. Large multi-family sales bring a larger crowd so you can show those outside your apartment home what makes your community special. Before you know it, you’ll have new residents to meet!
