Some Questions I have about getting a new apartment.?
So I moved to Oregon from California and have been staying with the folks. Now Im ready to get my own place.
Im looking for a 1 bed room apartment.
I found a place off craigslist...I like it a lot....mostly.....BUT...I stayed in my old place so long that Im out of touch
with the whole process, its cost...and in general what to consider....so Im looking for advise.
Location: I havent been there yet so I dont know what the other tenants are like or the neighborhood. Its hard to tell by "Driving around" in Street View.
*** One thing I did notice...is the complex is right next to a Train Track. I already wrote the management company about that and they replied: " The train doesn't blow it's horn by us (only intersections, I believe) and only comes late at night - around 10:30 pm and close to 12:30 am, it seems, but they aren't consistent"
*** Would that stop you from getting this place?
Its in Albany, Or. The rent is $ 775.00.
*** Is that Bad or reasonable...or.??
It requires 12 month lease.
** Is that Bad ? I think my previous place was month to month.
I would have to pay for " electricity, water, and sewer...plus Renters insurance.
*** Is this bad? At my previous place I only had to pay for electricity. How much on average would all these things cost?
Well, Im sure I have more questions but this will do for a start.
Thanks Much !
