Finding Apartments Online

Apartment Search Resources

The first place to turn is the internet. Websites like MyNewPlace.com allow you to search over 6 million apartments nationwide. This can give you a good starting point in which you can match your lists, budget with actual apartment listings in your desired location.

Usually, online resources are your best bet. If you are relocating, sites like Yelp can help you decide which part of town would suit you best. Online apartment rental sites will also have pictures, floor plans, maps and a comprehensive list of amenities that are usually not available with the limited space afforded to an apartment listing in a classified.

You can even websites such as Walk Score, which will show you what your neighborhood offers within walking distance.

Use one of the resources mentioned above to begin your search for apartments that fit your criteria. Online resources are designed to accommodate detailed searches.

If you start your search on the internet, begin by selecting your neighborhood by entering a zip code and then search your listings according to the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, rent and all the amenities that you would like.

Other amenities available include pet-friendly apartments, pools, fitness and business centers, views, fireplaces and a myriad of others.

You may need to narrow your search so that you can actually get around visiting all the apartments that are available. You are going to have to visit these places and meet with landlords.

Your first screening may also leave you with not enough options, in which case you’ll have to go tweak your ideal apartment criteria. Are you more set on a certain location or on apartment amenities?
