Searching for a new apartment can be a difficult task, especially if you’re not exactly sure what you’re looking for. Many people say that they don’t know what they want but they’ll “know it when they see it”. Well, that may be true, but it’s always a good idea to have some starting points. We know apartments well, so we’ve put together a list of key things to look for during your apartment search.

Location, Location, Location

If you’re searching for an apartment, you’ve probably heard this mantra before. Location isn’t just important, it’s a necessity. Always take into consideration where you are in respect to your job, grocery stores, pharmacies, and other places you might need to access at your convenience. When living at Woodmont West, you’re just an hour outside of New York City, 45 minutes from the beach, and a very short drive from interstate Route 80, making your daily commute that much easier. When thinking of location, Mount Arlington may be perfect for you.

Consider your Neighbors

During your apartment hunt, it’s always a good idea to visit the place you’ll be renting to check out the neighbors. There have been plenty of horror stories of neighbors being too loud, erratic, or simply unpleasant. To ensure you’re not locked into a lease next to neighbors you can’t seem to get along with, go inside the apartment to see if you can hear the neighbors, or even introduce yourself and see how you feel around them. At Woodmont West, noise from your neighbors is a non-issue. Equipped with state-of-the-art sound absorbing technologies within the walls and ceilings of each apartment, you’ll barely be able to hear your neighbors even if they do decide to get a little loud.

What Amenities Does the Community Offer

When looking at apartment communities, it’s important to note the different amenities that they offer outside of the apartment itself. Having a beautiful apartment is great, but it’s only as good as the community it’s placed in. Take a stroll through the community before committing to a new apartment, ask about the available amenities and ensure they’re good for you. Woodmont West, the 2017 winner of the NJBA’s Top Community, offers a plethora of awesome amenities including a stunning swimming pool, a huge clubhouse, fitness studio, indoor golf simulator, barbecue pits, a playground, and more.

Explore the Neighborhood

So you’ve viewed the apartment and explored the community, the next step is to discover the surrounding neighborhood. See the local coffee shops, restaurants, and leisure activities to ensure that you’ll be happy being a part of that neighborhood. At Woodmont West, you’ll become a part of the Mount Arlington community, surrounded by beautiful parks, great restaurants, and plenty of things to do around your new home.

Determine How Much Space You Need

The only thing worse than having too much empty space in your apartment is not having enough space for all of your stuff. Because of this, it’s important to view all of your prospective apartments in person and visualize how much storage space it offers versus how much you need. Closet space, storage space, and living space are all very important to take into consideration. To ensure the best possible storage solutions for anybody, Woodmont West offers several different floor plans to meet one’s needs. Ranging from 1 bedroom to 2 bedrooms, explore our floor plans and determine which one would best suit your needs.
