The good news: Moving to Perry Hall is a simple task that requires little more than finding a place to live and loading the moving van. It will help to have great references, money to hand over for the security deposit, and decent credit. But don't worry if you have a few blemishes on your credit report--some landlords are willing to look over a few credit snafus. You might want to curb your eBay addiction--at least temporarily--beforehand, though.
The bad news is that with only one distinct neighborhood, finding a good fit in an apartment rental will take a bit of searching and some investigating. The other downside is that the average commute to work is around 30 minutes. Not as bad as some other areas to be sure, but not as good as others either.
Plan a budget
When deciding on a budget, you might want to consider going a little over or even under it if you find what you are looking for quickly. So, no, don't randomly pick a number, and also don't be so inflexible if you can afford to.
Own a vehicle
While there is some public transportation, driving yourself will shorten your average commute time as well as make you more comfortable during the winter cold. Of course you will have to be the one driving on the snow-covered roads in winter, so that may or may not be a positive for you. Being a snowman or driving around snowmen--it's a tough dilemma, indeed.
Visit several times
If you aren't faced with a time crunch, visit the potential apartment a couple of times and drive around it at night.
Limit your legwork
You can eliminate a great many places from your list of potential apartments with a simple telephone call. Go over your list of must-haves and eliminate any apartments that fail to make the cut.
