When it comes to finding your perfect pad to rent, the location is everything.
You need to feel happy, safe and content when you sign your contract and put down your rental payment month by month. Sometimes, it can be difficult to know exactly what you want from your home, and exactly what you want from your area. There is a lot of value that can be added to a property purely based on its location, so let’s take a look at what factors you should consider when you are looking for ‘The One’ to call home…
What To Consider When Looking ‘The One’ To Call Home…
The Community -
One significant aspect to consider when it comes to finding your new home, is to find out what the locals are like. Is there a community spirit? Do people help each other out? Does your neighbour say ‘Hello’ when they see you?
It’s simple measures like these that can completely enhance your experience at a particular address.
Easy Access To Amenities -
Every tenant is different and every tenant prioritises different aspects of a property when it comes to looking for their rental to call home.
If you are a social butterfly, then amenities such as local bars, restaurants and leisure centres could be at the top of your list, or if you like to be able to get your essentials in without too much of a trek, then you may want to choose a property in walking distance or a short drive to a shopping centre or supermarket.
Whatever you are looking for in your local area, be sure to not compromise. You need to ensure that you are going to be happy and contented living where you do, so if you need any advice along the way, contact your agent and they can help make sure that each box on your list is ticked accordingly.
Easy Transport Links -
Ideally, you want to live somewhere that has easy access to transport links. Whether you drive your own car, rely on the bus or metro, or like to take a taxi, considering your access to transport is vital in order to make your life as easy as possible and ensure that you are 100% happy and stress free.
Thinking Ahead -
If you plan on renting your chosen property for many years to come, then factors to consider could be starting a family, if that is what you want for yourself. This means it is important to think ahead, and not just in the moment, to ensure that you are getting every bit of value out of the home that you can.
What are the local schools like? Are there nice parks around? How many bedrooms does the property have? Do you have a garden?
Future Plans -
Although it could seem drastic, especially if you are a Student embarking on your University experience, but researching into future plans for the location of your prospect property can be a huge decision maker. Are there any development plans for a new shopping centre or organisation that could create new jobs? Are there plans to enhance the transport links? These are both things that can add value to your property and the area that you live in.
