Five Questions To Ask On An Apartment Tour In Brownsburg

Touring apartments is a crucial step in finding out that a particular community will work for you. But while you’re looking over the bathrooms and storage space on your Brownsburg apartment tour, try to also use the time to ask your tour guide some probing questions. These questions can help you determine the feel and resident service the community can offer. After all, your apartment will be your home for a while, and it’s good to know just what to expect. To start off, these are the five questions to ask during an apartment tour in Brownsburg.

What’s The Apartment’s Pet Policy?

Many complexes advertise themselves as pet-friendly apartments in Brownsburg, but that term means different things to different communities. Some apartments have restrictions on the type of dog breeds they allow or limit how many animals can live in the apartment. Some pet policies prohibit small animals, such as rats, guinea pigs, large birds, or reptiles. And all pet policies most likely have a pet fee for your furry loved ones -- and many may even have a cleaning fee when you leave.

Finding out about the pet policy is a must if you own a cat or dog, or you’re thinking of getting one very soon. After all, your pet needs to be just as at home in your apartment as you are. But it's also a good question to ask on an apartment tour if you don’t have a pet. That way, you know what critters you might run into on a day-to-day basis. Also think of asking what amenities the apartment complex has for pets -- like dog parks or provided waste disposal sacks.

How Will I Pay Rent And Utilities?

20 years ago, rent was typically paid by check at the front office. Now, there could be many ways to pay rent. Does the company have a mobile app or can I use direct deposit? Can I put it on my credit card and receive points for my rent payment? Some companies might even allow you to pay through popular payment systems like PayPal or Venmo. Asking how you pay rent while on an apartment tour can be key for those who travel or want an easier option for paying rent.

Learning the details about utilities can also save you headaches during your lease. What utilities come with rent? Are you able to add utilities to my rent check? Are utilities, like water and gas, determined by communal use or are they calculated by each individual apartment? Do I have a choice on the internet, phone, or cable providers, or do I have to use the same company as the other residents? These questions may seem simple, but sometimes the answers are surprising.

What Amenities Are Available?

Your Brownsburg apartment tour should also include a quick peek. During your Brownsburg apartment tour you should also see the amenities and grounds. Although an overview of what’s available is helpful, you may want to inquire about residents' day-to-day usage of the complexes’ amenities.

If you want to work out early or late at night due to your work schedule, make sure you ask about the fitness center’s hours -- and when it’s the busiest. Parents may like to see what the children’s policy is for the basketball court or pool and hot tub. If you’d love an apartment that’s not just a space to lay your head down at night, but a community to fully enjoy, it’s important to ask about amenities while on your apartment tour. The answers may be the deciding factor between two apartment communities in Brownsburg.

How Do I Request Maintenance?

Before you leave your apartment tour, be sure that you ask about the maintenance situation. Maintenance practices can vary between companies, from on-site maintenance to third-party repair that has to be booked within normal business hours. Emergencies do crop up at times, but it’s how your community responds to your maintenance needs that can deeply influence your apartment experience.

When you ask about maintenance, it’s good to be thorough. Does the apartment have 24-hour on-site maintenance, or can personnel only do repairs during regular business hours? Who do I contact for an urgent repair need? Is there an online form to submit a maintenance request? And how will I know when they are done? You may want to ask what services isn’t done by maintenance, like washer/dryer installation or new paint.

What’s Parking Like?

When you’re on your apartment tour in Brownsburg, don’t forget to ask what how parking is handled. Am I assigned a parking spot, or is it first come first serve? Am I given a sticker or hang-tag for my car, and what if my family has multiple vehicles? Are there individual garages or carports available? And remember to ask about any towing policies. You don’t want to discover the perfect apartment, but realize that you need to go around the block for repeatedly to get a curbside space.
