When apartment searching, make time to always view any available house a real estate agent is pushing to you, no matter the promises, you have to go out and actually take a good look at things for yourself to be sure it’s a place that matches your preference and taste.

Things to check before you pay for an apartment:

  • The Road: How good is the road network that leads to the apartment?
  • Flood: Does it get flood in the area when it rains? This is a big deal because so much can go to ruins when the road is flooded.
  • Security/Safety: Have there been severe cases of armed robbery in the area? You need to put your safety at the top of any decision you’ll finally make.
  • Water Supply: You obviously cannot do without water in a house, confirm very clearly and even try to confirm on your own from a different source; that clean water is not an issue in the house.
