No matter if youâ??re buying or renting an apartment in Denver, you should know that Denver apartments are expensive. But how expensive are they, exactly?
If you plan on renting, a one-bedroom apartment costs over $1000, which means that if you only have a budget of $1000 for an apartment, it wonâ??t be enough. On the other hand, if you are buying, the price is at least $400,000. You would be pressed to find Denver apartments that cost $200,000.
If you think thatâ??s too expensive, it is. But then Denver has always been an expensive place to live in.
Anyway, whether or not youâ??re buying or renting, you would be glad to know that there are many apartments that you can choose from. To take a look at listings, you should go to websites like Zillow and search for apartments for rent or for sale.
When it comes to choosing a place, there are several factors you need to consider. One of these is the living space. Living space is different from the floor plan. While floor plan takes into consideration the space taken up by the walls, living space tells you how many square feet you can step on and use.
Most listings only list the square footage of the floor plan. This is not accurate. If you want to know how big of a space you actually have, you should ask the real estate agent about the square footage of the living area.
Another factor that you need to consider is the amenities of the building. It goes without saying, not all apartments are created alike. There are those that offer swimming pools. While others do better by adding a gym on top of the pool. Still, there are those apartment buildings that donâ??t offer anything at all.
Anyway, itâ??s not our place to tell you what type of apartment youâ??re going to choose, whether itâ??s going to be the one with the swimming pool or the one with nothing at all.
Another factor you need to consider when deciding on an apartment is the relative location. You donâ??t need to rent an apartment that sits at the heart of the city. But you do need to choose a place where you have access to transportation. There are apartments out there that sit on the fringes of the city and itâ??s not the place you want to be unless if you have a car.
Before deciding on an apartment, make sure that you make a personal visit. Some people consent themselves with virtual tours. For us, this is not enough. In virtual tours, there are things that you can is easily miss like stains on the wall or a few things that need repairs here in there.
The good thing about it is that you can easily book a personal visit. You just need to contact the concerned real estate agent. Choosing an apartment is not rocket science, however, you do need to be careful.
