Are you ready for your next move? Sometimes it can be difficult to decide if it is the right time to rent a new apartment. The itch to move, especially as the weather warms up, may have you ready to pack your bags. Here are the top 10 reasons that now may be the best time to rent a new apartment!
1. You Want an Easier Commute for Work
It might be time to move into a new apartment if you have a new job offer or you are looking to move closer to work. Commute time can really affect one’s quality of life, so this is definitely a legitimate reason to move to a new apartment. When moving for a job or to be closer to friends and family, consider the total commute time, the type of commute you prefer (walking, driving, bus or train) and the access to public transportation options.
2. You Want Access to More Modern Amenities
Is your current apartment building a bit run down or outdated? One of the huge perks of apartment living is the access you have to modern amenities. From a fitness center in the building to modern appliances, apartment living allows you to live in modern luxury. Consider which amenities are important to you in your next apartment and move to a location that offers what you are lacking currently.
3. You Want More Space
Having a spacious floor plan can provide all the space you need to help you feel relaxed and at home. Changing apartments because of space constraints is very common. Try not to get too caught up over square footage, as modern floor plans have higher ceilings and are arranged to be more open, creating a space that feels much larger. Go on a tour to experience different floor plans and pick a space that meets your needs.
4. You Want a New Pet
If your current space does not allow pets and you are looking to add a furry friend to the family, you may be forced to rent a new apartment. Look for apartments in your desired area that are pet-friendly and will allow your specific pet to live in peace. Summit Court is proud to be pet-friendly community!
5. You Want Access to Public Transportation
Living close to public transportation can make a world of difference in your life. Summit Court is located conveniently in walking distance from NJ Transit and is also a skip away from major highways. If you are currently located far away from public transportation, chances are that you have a hard commute. Easier access to public transportation is a great reason to rent a new apartment.
6. You Want Your Own Space
Are you currently living with roommates or at home with family? If so, you may finally feel ready to embark on renting your very own apartment. This is an exciting time in your life, and a great reason to make a move! Renting your own space can feel liberating. It is an exciting step into independence and adulthood.
7. You Want a More Walkable Location
Being able to go on nice walks to local places can greatly improve your overall mood and health. If your current location isn’t in an area that allows for easy walking, you may be tempted to move to a more walkable location. This is an understandable reason to move into a new apartment, as it will improve your quality of life and give you easier access to the places you want to go!
8. You Want Less Maintenance
It is very common for people to move from living in a house to living in an apartment. While this may seem uncommon, it makes sense when considering the conveniences apartment living can offer. If you are tired of worrying about maintenance and the other stresses home ownership can bring, moving into an apartment can help you live a more relaxed lifestyle.
9. You Want to Save Up to Buy a Home
On the flip side, moving into an apartment can help you save up to eventually buy a home. Many renters have the goal of one day moving into a home. It is a great idea to rent an apartment while you save money for that next big step. In the meantime, you will get to enjoy the amenities of apartment living and explore what you want your next step to be.
