There is an institution tasked yearly to dive into what’s going on the life of a person on why he or she is going to do this – the American housing survey. The information they gather affects the decisions made by the huge market of rentals in the city. Here are their recent findings:
The decision of 20 percent of the people moving from one location to another is greatly induced by the person’s job or employment status.
25 percent of respondents have almost identical requirements when asked “what factors are you looking for first in a neighborhood you’re going to move into?” They’re answers always includes quality of education, activities present in the neighborhood, public services and how many friends or relatives are located within the area as well.
21 percent of the respondents said that the final aspect they looked at which made it the tie breaker for some conflicts is that they liked the way the neighborhood is planned. This alone is a great motivational tool for developers that whatever investment their putting on the beautification of the layout of a neighborhood does indeed play a huge part in return of investment or ROI.
34 percent accounted for people who cited an array of “other” reasons.
This most recent results of the survey done by the American housing survey cements that the primary reason why people move remains to because of financial situations or their jobs. Although considering the overall result, it also tells us that amenities does play a bigger role on their decision making process than what previously thought.
Once a person have located the neighborhood, it now time to move on the particulars of the apartment. As the experts have always said when you’re trying to find yourself an apartment – it’s all about options. It’s important that you list down the things you liked on each apartment you visit. After that what’s left is to weight in the options you best like. Here are some of the best options one has to look for in an apartment.
Storage – if you’ve got a lot of things that you don’t particularly want to be seen out in the open by guest, it’s good to always keep an eye on where you could store these things. Missing out on this could lead to an apartment filled with clutter which would of course lead to unhappiness with your choice.
Appliances – You need to be as scrupulous as possible. The biggest mistake is to be timid and not to check on each feature of the apartment’s appliances. Check for obvious wear and tear on all appliances as this could save you a lot of hassle in time.
Noise level – when you come in to check on an apartment being offered, it’s best done during early in the morning or even at nights. This way, you’ll be able to hear the noise level of the house brought by other people nearby. At these times, it’s more likely that all the neighbors are at their homes and you’ll pretty much have an actual view of what you’re going listen to everyday.
