Need assistance with deposits, utilities, phone, internet, etc. click here.


Consider the requirements to move into certain apartments.

Consider age requirement, income restrictions, pets, credit score.


Find an apartment near the areas you frequent most: school, work, daycare, etc.


Ask yourself, is this on a bus line. How will my transportation costs change?

Rent should not be more than 50-60% of your income. But rent is not the only cost associated with moving.

Consider utilities, sewage, parking, renters insurance, and Wi-Fi.


Think about how much space is needed for your budget and your family.


You may consider a 1 bedroom during the first year of parenting.


Your apartment should cater to some of your needs since you will be there at least a year.


Think about: laundry on site or in-home, A/C, updated kitchen appliances, security, etc.
