Considering these 5 steps will make your search much easier, and will  allow our real estate professionals to locate your ideal property  quickly and efficiently.

1. Price

The most important and significant step in locating the ideal place to  rent is setting your price range. Take into account your sources of  income, the amount of that income, as well as any major purchases or  investments in the future. When searching based on price, remember to  factor in the prices for utilities, and moving expenses. Once you have  set a base price you will be able to afford, the search can move  forward.

2. Decide on a location

Consider factors that may affect the location of your potential  residence, such as: schools, your place of employment, major highways  and interstates, stores, friends, family, etc. By deciding what  location(s) would best suit your lifestyle, your search will be narrowed  significantly.

3. Amenities

By prioritizing which amenities are most valuable to you, many potential  choices will be crossed out. Consider features such as: washer/dryer  connections, balcony/patio, bedroom number, square footage, floor,  fireplace, bonus rooms, pet policy, etc. While many properties have  strict guidelines, some vary by floor-plan.

4. Signing a Lease

Once you have decided which property is right, you will need to sign a  lease. The majority of leases will involve basic personal, employment,  and financial information. If your income is not sufficient, you may  choose a co-signer who can be held accountable. You will also be  required to indicate a lease term when signing, which typically range  from 6-24 months.

5. Moving In

When preparing to move, planning ahead is the most important step to remember.
