5 Questions To Ask On An Apartment Tour In Noblesville

Walking through apartment tours is a crucial step in knowing if that a particular community is where you want to live. But while you’re looking over the apartment floor plan and amenities on your Noblesville apartment tour, you should also use the time to ask your guide some in-depth questions. These questions work well to help you determine the atmosphere and resident service the complex can give. After all, your apartment will be your home for a while, and it’s good to see precisely what you’re getting into. To get you started, here’s a list of the five questions to ask during an apartment tour in Noblesville.

What Is The Apartment’s Pet Policy?

Many communities advertise themselves as pet-friendly apartments in Noblesville, but that can be a fairly vague term. Some buildings have dog breed restrictions or limit how many animals can live in the unit. Some pet policies prohibit small animals, such as mice, hamsters, large birds, or lizards. And all pet policies typically have a pet fee for your furry loved ones -- and many may even have a cleaning fee upon move out.

Inquiring about the pet policy is a no-brainer if you live with a dog or cat, or you’re thinking of getting one in the near future. After all, you want your pet to be just as happy in your apartment as you are. However, it's also a great question to ask on an apartment tour if you don’t have a pet. That way, you know what critters you might cross paths with on an everyday basis. Also think of asking what amenities the apartment complex has for pets -- like dog runs or free waste disposal sacks.

How Will I Pay Rent And Utilities?

In the old days, rent was typically paid by leaving payment at the office. Today, there could be multiple ways to pay. Does the complex have an app or can I use direct deposit? Can I put it on my credit card and receive reward points for my rent? Some companies might let you pay through trusted payment apps like PayPal or Venmo. Asking this question while on an apartment tour can be key for residents who travel or need a more convenient option for paying rent.

Understanding the details about utilities can also save you headaches later on. What utilities come with rent? Are you able to roll utilities into my rent check? Are utilities, such as water, electric, and gas, based on communal use or are they calculated by each individual apartment? Can I choose the internet, phone, or cable providers, or do I have to use the same provider as everyone else in the community? These questions may seem cut and dry, but sometimes the answers are surprising.

What Amenities Will I Have Access To?

Your Noblesville apartment tour should also include a quick look. During your Noblesville apartment tour you should also walk through the amenities and grounds. Even though a broad understanding of what’s available is helpful, you may want to probe further into the details of the complexes’ amenities.

If you want to exercise early or at night because of your work schedule, make sure you ask about the hours of the exercise center -- and when it’s the busiest. Parents may wish to see what the children’s policy is for the playground or pool. If you want an apartment that’s not just a space to sleep, but a community to fully enjoy, it’s vital to ask about amenities during your apartment tour. The answers may be the deciding factor between two apartments in Noblesville.

How Do I Request Maintenance?

Before you finish your apartment tour, be sure that you ask about the maintenance situation. Maintenance policies can vary between companies, from 24-hour emergency response to outside contractors that needs to be booked within regular business hours. Emergencies do happen sometimes, but it’s how maintenance is able to respond that can make or break your living situation.

When you ask about maintenance, it’s good to be thorough. Does the community have emergency on-site maintenance, or can they only work on repairs during normal business hours? Who do I talk to when I have an emergency? Do they have an online form to complete request maintenance? And how will I know when they’re finished? You may want to ask what work won’t be performed by maintenance staff, like washer/dryer hookup or new shelving.

Where Do I Park?

When you’re taking your apartment tour in Noblesville, it’s good to ask what where you park your car. Am I assigned a place to park, or is it first come first serve? Do I need a parking sticker or hang-tag for my vehicle, and what if my family has two or more cars? Does the community have individual garages or carports? And don’t forget to ask about any towing policies. You don’t want to find your ideal apartment, but realize that you need to circle the block for an hour to find a curbside spot.
