What to Look for in your Colorado Rental
Finding a home to rent in Colorado doesn't have to be tricky! Before you start your search, it's important to know what to look for in a rental home. Consider the points below as you browse rental properties on REcolorado.
- Research the neighborhood. Visit the REcolorado Popular Places to Live page to learn more about popular neighborhoods in Colorado. Search for the city or area you're considering to find out if the location you’re interested in would be a good fit. View real estate data including demographics, average housing costs, environment, and more.
- Learn the Walkscore. One of the benefits of living in the city is the ability to easily walk from your home to work, grocery stores, and entertainment. If you are looking for a home in a walkable area, complete the Walkscore search field on REcolorado listing pages to determine if the neighborhood is walker friendly.
- Be aware of amenities. Depending on the property you rent, several amenities may be included in your rent cost. Is it an apartment complex with a pool, gym, and outdoor space? What sort of garbage services are available? Is it pet friendly? Be sure to ask the superintendent or landlord about amenities.
- Low Maintenance. A great part of living in a rental home is the likelihood that some or all maintenance will be taken care of by the superintendent. Are you responsible for lawn care, snow removal, and damaged appliances? Find out what sort of maintenance the rental property offers so you can avoid extra expenses.
