9 Common Mistakes That Renters Make - http://gplnk.co/1RE5VIx

The tenant population is certainly diverse, and many renters, especially #millennials are entering the housing market for the first time. Unfortunately, word often doesn’t get around about typical renter mistakes, so the same errors are often repeated.

A HUGE mistake, in our opinion, that many renters make is taking the apartment before they learn the neighborhood. You really want to take a look at the neighborhood a couple of times before you agree to any written contract. Drive through the area four separate times, days and evenings weekdays and weekends. Also look up crime statistics for the immediate area.

Here are 8 more common mistakes that renters are making... can you think of any more? http://gplnk.co/1RE5VIx

Thinking About Subletting Your Apartment This Summer? 
Checklist: http://gplnk.co/1pAuPw3

Are you one of the many millennials that will soon be on summer break from college? If so, you might be considering doing a little traveling. Whatever your situation, when your apartment is sitting empty, it could be making you money. Enter the world of subletting.

“But before you leap in,” notes Laura Gaskill in Forbes, “it’s important to get a full picture of the risks you face and what (if anything) you can do to minimize them.”

In other words, successful subletting is all about preparation. Our latest blog post offers a small, five-item to-do list that will guide you in getting yourself legal, finding a tenant, screening applicants, figuring out your price, and charging a security deposit. 

Here is a quick 5-item checklist to get you started: http://gplnk.co/1pAuPw3

It's All About Tricking the Eye

Lucite furniture has been everywhere lately — and from the looks of this dining table, it’s obvious why! Lucite is the ultimate neutral: You can pair it with any color or pattern, and it instantly glams up a room. If you’re going for a minimalist look, Lucite will help keep your decor streamlined and clean, since it doesn't really have a visual footprint.

Are You An IDEAL Tenant?
If you can learn how to put your best foot forward, you can write your own ticket when it comes to choosing an apartment! Learn how: http://gplnk.co/1Oa4YWg

One of the main ideas in the legendary self-help book How to Win Friends and Influence People (Dale Carnegie, 1936) is that you can optimize all interactions by looking at the situation from the other person’s perspective.

That truism is helpful when looking at apartments. Keep in mind that the landlord wants the best possible renters, but even more than that, they want to keep all the terrible renters at arm’s length.

Here is one landlord's horror story: “He had stored garbage in the attic, because he did not pay his garbage fees…. He also kicked in all of the doorknob holes with a sledge hammer…. But, the clincher was how he literally walked thru my walls, leaving an outline of a body throughout my sheetrock.”

Time To Get Organized!!! http://gplnk.co/1MngQ1I

Let's face it, you probably have too much stuff. It's incredibly valuable to have "everything in its place" and to have your life guided by a sense of order; in fact, more than 4 out of 5 people said that being organized made them more productive on the job, according to J.J. McCorvey of Inc.

Studies have also suggested that organization is positive emotionally as it revitalizes and empowers people.

But where to start? Our latest blog post is going to help you. Learn how to get yourself, and your apartment, organized: http://gplnk.co/1MngQ1I

Bad Credit? No Problem!!! http://gplus.ly/1KDZkuz

HotPads has tips to help you land an apartment even if your credit isn't so great!

One of the best pieces of advice is to focus on the small operators. Think about it... a landlord who owns a few buildings as an individual is often more willing to make “on the fly” lease adjustments, as opposed to a large apartment company, since the latter uses a more standardized approach. They are more likely to be less rigid in their rules.

Have A Lease With A Slumlord? Steps You Can Take: http://gplus.ly/1KLiglH

The dreaded S-word, #slumlord . This is a term ascribed to a manager of a “slum” property. Generally a shady individual who profiteers as the expense of their tenants.

We featured some advice from +Marcia Stewart of Nolo[dot]com on a recent blog post that outlines some of the big stick solutions that one might choose to use if their landlord is refusing to make good on their end of the lease agreement:

1. Refuse to pay rent.
2. Reach out to your city’s building inspectors.
3. Repair-and-deduct: Make the fix yourself and then reduce your next rent check accordingly.
4. Thumb your nose at the lease and move elsewhere.
5. Continue to pay your rent but file a lawsuit against the slumlord that covers the difference between what you paid them and what is truly fair rent given the lack of maintenance.
