Not quite ready to purchase your dream home? Renting a space is just as big of a responsibility as buying your own. But, what should you REALLY consider when finding that perfect pad to settle in to?
- List down your non-negotiables. What home features or accessibilities are you NOT willing to live without?
- Though, these non-negotiables SHOULD be realistic to how much you can actually afford. How much can you shell out on shelter? (Don’t forget to account for association/village dues, water and electricity costs, and parking fees)
- Consider the price per square meter… a teenie, tiny apartment in a central district, could possibly get you a roomier one-bedroom condominium right at the outskirts. Weigh what’s worth your budget!
