Q. Can I have shelves, curtains, posters, etc.? 

  • The answer is a resounding yes! You can have shelves, curtains, posters, and so much more. The possibilities are endless, whether you want to express yourself through funky wall art or create a cozy corner with curtains and a few throw pillows. Shelves can be a great way to add storage space and showcase your favorite decorative items, while posters and art can add color and personality to any room. So get creative because the only limit is your imagination when decorating your space!

Q. Can I paint my walls? 

  • Whether settling into a new apartment or looking to refresh your current space, painting your walls can be a great way to express your style and make your home feel more like you. While you’re free to paint to your heart’s content, it’s important to remember that you’ll have to undo your handiwork before you move out. Restoring your walls to their original color can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be a headache. With some preparation and care, you can enjoy your freshly painted walls without worrying about the move-out process. So go ahead, break out the paintbrush, and choose the hue that makes you smile – just remember that you’ll have to say goodbye when it’s time to move on.

Q. What does the application and leasing process look like? 

  • Applying for an apartment can be a daunting experience, but the application and leasing process can be straightforward and efficient. To get started, all applications must be submitted online. This makes it easy for the applicant and the landlord to organize and keep track of important information. After the screening process, a decision will be made, and the applicant will be kept up to date with the subsequent steps. With modern technology and well-established processes, renting an apartment has never been more accessible.

Q. Do you require renter’s insurance? 

  • Protecting yourself and your belongings with renter’s insurance is essential as a resident. In a fire, theft, or other unexpected circumstance, renter’s insurance can help reimburse you for lost or damaged items and offer liability coverage if someone is injured on your rental property. It’s a small investment that can provide peace of mind and protection for your belongings and financial well-being. So, if you’re a renter, don’t overlook the importance of renter’s insurance.

Taking care of this task at least 48 hours before your move-in date ensures no last-minute delays or complications could ruin your moving day. Whether moving into a new home or apartment, covering all your bases is essential when setting up utilities.
