  |     |   Apartment Living Tips

 

If you’re new to apartment living, you may want to read our top list of apartment living do’s and don’ts! These are a few great tips and rules to live by when living with neighbors, rented space, and community living. Follow these, and your apartment home experience will be great!

 

DO:

Spend time researching your options before settling on an apartment home, floor plan, square feet, location, amenities, and more that are necessary in your next apartment home and community. You can save yourself time and resources by narrowing your search to only include exactly what you want in your apartment living experience.

DON’T:

Don’t make your search too narrow. There is likely the perfect apartment home community out there for you but you may need to adjust a few “must-haves” for your new apartment space.

 

DO:

Read your lease carefully. Reading every line of your lease is important to establish a clear understanding of the expectations from your new apartment management company. Buckingham only includes important details and encourages you to understand these from the day you move in so you have a smooth apartment living experience.

DON’T:

Don’t forget to ask questions. If something seems confusing and you don’t fully understand your lease, you should connect with our leasing team to provide clarity.

 

DO:

Simplify your moving process by only moving your items and furniture you know you will need. Moving too much into your apartment is easy when you are moving from a larger space like a home to a smaller space like your new apartment home.

DON’T:

Don’t buy everything you think you need at once. It can be easy to get swept into over-purchasing furniture and décor in the effort to finishing moving. We suggest that you buy everything you need to live comfortably, but then wait. Live in the space for a little and figure out through experience what you actually need for your new apartment home.

 

DO:

Get to know your neighbors. One of the best perks about apartment community living is the opportunity to make new connections with your neighbors.

DON’T:

Don’t be a bad neighbor. That means don’t be too loud, please pick up after your pets, and be friendly around the apartment community. Go by the golden rule and treat others how you want to be treated. Kindness can go a long way!

 

Follow these apartment living do’s and don’ts and we know your apartment living experience will be a positive one. Welcome home, and if we can do anything to make your experience in our community the best it can be, connect with our leasing office for assistance.
