Apartment Rental Tips for College Students in Lexington

Are you leaving the dorm and renting your first apartment next year?  It’s a fun time and you’ll gain new freedoms.  But, you should know a few tips to help make your experience simple.

  1. Beat the Crowd.   Just like you, there are many exiting students looking to score the best apartments in Lexington.  Proximity to campus and amenities draw a lot of interested renters.  Don’t let the last available apartment in the ideal location go to someone else.  That means start researching properties online now.
  2. Tag Team.  Consider the benefits of a roommate.  Your rental dollars go twice as far, which means you can get more space and likely better amenities.  Make sure that when you sign your lease that your roommate(s) also sign the lease.  That ensures that any liabilities for damages, etc. are shared by you all instead of just you.
  3. Visit Several Apartments.  Don’t let the enthusiasm of living in an apartment get the best of you.  Visit several locations.  See for yourself how long it takes to get to campus, or how far you are from the nearest gym.
  4. Take Pictures.  Grab your future roommate and smartphone and document your visits.  Take pictures of parking spaces, amenities (like a pool or gym), closet space, outdoor lighting, etc. Sit down with your future roommate and go through the pictures and discuss what you like best and least about each location.
  5. Credit? Many college students have not yet established a solid credit score, so most will need a parent to co-sign the lease.  Get your ducks in a row whether you are applying under your own credit rating, or need a co-signer.  Once you begin renting, you will begin building your own credit rating, and you may be able to take your parent off as a co-signer for following years.
  6. Checkbook Please.  After selecting the right apartment, don’t forget to bring your checkbook when you apply for a lease.  The property management may require you to cover their costs for checking your credit.  If your credit is approved, you’ll be asked to put down a deposit.  With a lot of competition for your new apartment, you don’t want to miss out because you forgot your checkbook.
