Finding an Apartment on Mercer Island

There are a lot of ways to find an apartment here, and little to none of them involve bribery! Okay, none of them do, we just wanted to sound tough. Sure, you can look online, but don't you want a great meet-cute for you and your new apartment?

Watch 'Em Go By

Take the bus when you have the time, and just sit and watch apartments go by with big "FOR RENT" signs acting as beacons. Don't worry, as long as you bring a book you won't look too creepy. If you see an amazing place, just get off the bus, grab the number for the listing, and give them a call. If it's a bust, just get back on the next bus!

Word of Mouth

When you see a great place, instead of keeping it a secret, let everyone know! It might not be the perfect place for you, and if it helps out a friend it'll inspire them to pay you back. Besides, who couldn't use a little good karma in their life? 

Preparation For Your Home

Have a copy of your credit report while preparing the applications forms. Seriously, if you wait too long, someone else might snag up your dream spot. Additionally, have at least the first month's and last month's rent available in your savings. Even if it's all you've got, you're going to need it to assure the landlord you're the right one for the apartment. After all, with the beautiful apartments you're going to have to choose from, you'll begin to truly understand why cash is king. 

This area is hot, so expect them to want a credit check. The nicer landlords may pay the cost themselves, otherwise expect a $30-40 dollar charge in addition to your application. Don't worry, this isn't a scam (unless it's a really lame one). To put the sugar on top, make sure to have a demonstration of your current employment. Whether it's current pay stubs or even a letter from your boss, you'll be glad you proved you're not a bum.

Parking

In most cases, apartments in Mercer Island would have parking within the property. On moments where there’s none, you could try to convince your landlord to open up a spot in your building (if it has any).

Finding Your Way Around

Ditch the Vehicle

The public transportation system in the King County is very reliable to ride on. There’s no need for a car unless you work in an occupation that require it or that involve transporting large items to more than one destination. You also have the bus, train or cab to rely on for traveling for work or personal reasons.

Cycling and Trails are FREE

Seriously, why spend money if you don't have to? Well, unless you like showing off. Mercer Island has some of the best parks in the state, though, so you'd be a fool not to take a moment to enjoy them from time to time.
