5 Questions To Ask On An Apartment Tour In Greenwood

Walking through apartment tours is a crucial step in knowing if that a particular community is for you. But while you’re inspecting the bathrooms and closet space on your Greenwood apartment tour, it’s also a good time to ask your tour guide some in-depth questions. These questions are good to help you get a glimpse of the feel and personal attention the complex can offer. Remember that your apartment will be where you call home for a while, and it’s nice to know exactly what you’re getting into. To begin, these are the 5 questions to ask on an apartment tour in Greenwood.

What Is The Community’s Pet Policy?

Many complexes market themselves as pet-friendly apartments in Greenwood, but that term can mean many different things. Some buildings have restrictions on dog breeds you can own, or how many pets can be in the apartment. Some pet policies prohibit small animals, such as rats, guinea pigs, birds, or reptiles. And all pet policies typically have a pet fee for your animals -- and many may even charge a cleaning fee upon move out.

Asking about the pet policy is a must if you live with a cat or dog, or you’re considering adopting one very soon. After all, you’d like your pet to be just as comfortable in the apartment as you are. But it's also a great question to ask on an apartment tour if you don’t own a pet. That way, you know what types of pets you might cross paths with on a consistent basis. You may also want to ask what amenities the apartment community has for pets -- like dog parks or provided waste disposal bags.

How Will I Pay Rent And Utilities?

20 years ago, rent was always paid by leaving payment at the front office. These days, there might be different ways to make a rent payment. Does the complex have an app or can pay by direct deposit? Can I pay by credit card and stack up reward points for my rent? Some complexes may even let you pay through trusted payment companies like Venmo or PayPal. Asking this question during an apartment tour can be critical for residents who are traveling a lot or require a cashless option for paying rent.

Learning the details about utilities can also make your life easier in the future. What utilities are included with rent? Can you incorporate utilities in my rent check? Are utilities, like water, electric, and gas, determined by communal use or are they determined by individual apartments? Can I choose the internet, phone, or cable providers, or am I limited to the same provider as everyone else in the community? These questions may feel cut and dry, but sometimes the answers are different than you'd expect.

What Amenities Are Available?

Your Greenwood apartment tour should also include a quick look. During your Greenwood apartment tour you should also look at the amenities and grounds. Although an overview of what a community has is nice, you may like to ask more about residents' day-to-day usage of the apartment community’s amenities.

If you’d like to work out in the early morning or late to accommodate your work schedule, be sure to ask about the hours of the exercise center -- and when it’s most often used. Moms and Dads may want to see what the policy is for kids to use the fitness center or pool. If you want an apartment that’s not only a space to lay your head down at night, but a community you can truly enjoy, it’s important to ask amenity questions while on your apartment tour. The answers may be the decision point between two apartment complexes in Greenwood.

How Do You Handle Maintenance Requests?

Before you finish your apartment tour, make sure that you ask about the maintenance situation. Maintenance practices can vary wildly, from on-site maintenance to outside maintenance that needs to be reserved within regular business hours. Unforeseen problems do occur sometimes, but it’s how your maintenance requests are handled that can make or break how you feel about your apartment.

When asking about maintenance, it’s good to be thorough. Does the community have 24-hour on-site maintenance, or can personnel only work on repairs during regular business hours? Who do I talk to when I have an urgent repair need? Do they have an online form to complete request maintenance? And how will I be contacted when they are done? You might even want to ask what services wouldn’t be covered by maintenance staff, such as washer/dryer installation or ceiling fan installation.

Where Do I Park?

When you’re on your apartment tour in Greenwood, it’s good to ask what how parking is handled. Do I need an assigned parking spot, or is parking by my building open to all residents? Am I given a parking sticker or hang-tag for my vehicle, and what if my family has two or more cars? Does my lease include an individual garage or carport? And don’t forget to inquire about the towing procedure. You’d hate to to find your dream apartment, but realize that you need to go around the block for half an hour to get a curbside space.
