Winter is Coming for Atlanta Apartments

  • How many square feet is the floor plan?
  • How many bedrooms?
  • Baths?
  • How much are rent and fees?
  • Is the location good for commuting?

These are all common questions that come up when renters are searching for the perfect Atlanta apartment to fit their budget. All of these are great questions to ask, but what about, “Is there a fitness center in the community?” Winter is coming! And the best apartment community amenity to fight the pounds associated with winter weight and holiday eating at Atlanta apartments.

Not all Atlanta apartments’ fitness rooms are created equal. Be sure the health center in the apartment community you choose has the essentials you require. For instance, is there cardio equipment available so residents can maintain heart healthy exercise? What about weights or resistance training for building strength? The cardio-friendly fitness center at Stonetree Apartments provides multiple treadmills and other cardio equipment AND weight machines for strength training.

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.

Oak Run Apartments in Jonesboro, Georgia serves our community with 1000 sq. ft. two bedroom garden apartments complete with well-equipped kitchens including dishwashers, spacious living / dining areas, full laundry rooms, a private patio or balcony and lots of storage!
