Mice, Pests, Mold Control Out of the twenty factors listed, decide which five are the most important to you. Explain why, what you want and how you can check a rental for that factor. 1.) Location is an important factor because I wouldn’t want to live in an area with high crime rates. I would want to live somewhere I wouldn’t have to worry about my safety. I would check a rental for this factor by researching the city it’s in. 2.) Parking is also important because I don’t want to park far away from my living space. I want to have a parking spot right next to my apartment for easy access. I would check this by visiting the rental and looking for a parking lot. 3.) Price is an important factor because I don’t want to pay too much for an apartment that isn’t that big. I would be willing to pay a decent price but nothing too expensive. I would check this by asking the landlord what the price is. 4.) Windows and lighting are an important factor because I don’t want to live in a dark, stuffy apartment. I want an apartment that has windows and good lighting. I would check this by taking a tour of the rental. 5.) Age of rental would be an important factor because I wouldn’t want appliances or pieces of the apartment to fall apart during my stay. I would want a rental to be at most ten years old. If it were that old, everything would have to be in great condition. I would check by seeing the rental and researching the property history. Step 2: Choose your apartment.
