What to Know About Renting


The number of people that will occupy the apartment has a huge influence on the type of rental housing that makes the best fit, naturally. Not keen on living in what feels like a clown car? Didn't think so. Fortunately, single occupants and growing families alike can find someplace to call home in Adelphi, but you should do your research on how accommodating the neighborhood will be for a family of your specific size. For example, those with young children should research potential schools, playgrounds, and day care options close to each apartment. This information will come in especially handy if you are looking for a place in Adelphi with the help of a real estate agent. Your agent can focus on your requirements, saving time and helping you to find the best place.


Scope out the neighborhood and find out the types of amenities available. Are there parks nearby, grocery stores, dry cleaners, drug stores, gyms, and other conveniences? We would hate for you to sign a lease, only to discover that you're not so fond of the loud business a block away.


Sound nuisances can end up being a very sore point when you sign a lease and move in. Do your neighbors have children? If they live upstairs, you may have to expect a lot of noise from running feet. If this is something you can't live with, ask for an apartment at the top floor, or beneath quieter tenants. Another thing to watch out for is the noise from an adjacent highway or busy roads. If the constant hum of traffic isn't much of a bother to you, it may not be a concern, but remember that a 12-month lease can seem like 5 years when faced with a nearby noise nuisance.

Those Pesky Pets

We're not saying that we don't love friendly Fido, but sometimes dogs can become a problem when they're not your own. Some apartments allow their tenants to own pets, and the barking or yipping of dogs can drive some people nuts. Imagine the sound... Are you going coo-coo? If the neighbors have untrained pets, ask for another apartment far away. Are you the pet owner? Be a pal -- It's up to you to make sure pets don't turn into pests.
