Second question is about the safety of your neighbourhood. So you have to gather information about the crime rate of the area in which the apartment is located. Most of the time it is seen that apartment owners don’t disclose the crime rate data of their locality, and urge residents to be careful about the crime without believing on any information. For that reason, it is better that the residents of that area do the research on their own about the crime statistics as this will allow them to make a well-informed decision before shifting in the apartment.

Third and final question is about the nearness of grocery stores, shopping centres or any recreational shop to the apartment.

If you cook by yourself at home then renting an apartment that is located near grocery stores or restaurants would be beneficial for you. And if you are a shopaholic then finding an apartment that is near to a shopping mall will be good because you will be able to spend your free time.
