How much do you know about your apartment ?


Unless you can afford a home, leasing an apartment is probably your next best option. Most people that lease pay attention to the price but how many people pay attention to the apartments criminal history?

Luckily, this is a very easy thing to find out. In most cases you can just google the name of your apartment followed by "police reports". This should bring up any relevant information regarding criminal activity for the apartment.

You may also be surprised to find out that the apartment you are looking for has been reported for not being up to code. I don't know about you but I don't want to have to worry about a collapsing staircase.

Don't bother asking the leasing agent about criminal activities. Most of them are not allowed to disclose that information. The internet is you best friend on this one.

Good luck searching -

How to beat the apartment locator

So its time to find a new apartment. First step check Craigslist !!  "Oh I like this price ! "  "What is this place called ?.. wait WHY DOES IT NOT SAY THE APARTMENT NAME !!!"


So what is really going on, why do they not list the names of the apartments?

These ads are put here by apartment locators. They don't list the name because they want you to contact them. Once you contact them they will insist that they either show up to the apartment with you or that you write their name on the referral section of the lease. 

It is important to understand that the apartment locator has only one goal and that is to get their name on your lease. If they put their name on your lease then the apartment will pay them several hundred dollars in most cases. Nobody works for free right.

I am going to teach you a very easy and quick trick to find the name of the apartment with only the image. Reverse Google image search. This is a very handy tool! 

1) First- Find the image of the apartment and drag it onto your desktop or save the image.

2) Go to google images.

3) Once you get there click on the small camera icon on the right side of the search bar.

4) It will give you the option to paste the image URL or upload the image. You want to click upload image.

5) Now just simply click choose file and upload the image. Done !



Google will automatically locate this image and all other similar images. Now just click on the matching image below and you will most likely land on a web page containing the name of the apartment. Then just call the apartment and ask about their availability.
