10 Horrors of Apartment Hunting
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: apartment hunting sucks (unless you’ve enlisted our help, of course). Here’s just a few of the horrors of apartment hunting you might encounter on the way to finding your perfect place.
Many a heads have been scratched trying to figure out how the apartment in the photo is the same one your standing in.
2. Poor Timing
It’s a tale as old as time: you think you’ve found the perfect place then poof, the listing disappears before you’re very eyes.
3. Creepy Crawly Critters
Don’t wait until it’s too late for this one: when you’re touring, open cabinets, examine corners and peek under appliances; now is not the time to play it cool.
4. Ill-Defined Spaces
Even those with true vision and talent for decor just can’t get past a kitchen/bathroom combo.
5. Delusional Landlords
“I’ll accept nothing less than $2,900 for this spacious and luxurious 225ft² studio, sink included.”
Someone actually lives here? Ugh. Gross. No.
7. Unexpected Roommates
Who invited these guys? Do they even pay rent?
8. Thin Walls
Who needs to catch up on their soaps when the situation in 8b is far more intriguing.
9. Unwanted Amenities
The plunge pool that nobody ever wanted…
10. Questionable Neighborhoods
Battling in the streets at all hours, those neighbors just have no respect.
