Red Flags to Watch Out for When Apartment Hunting

If you’re reading this, then most likely your time at your current apartment is coming to an end and you are beginning the search for a new home. We have created a guide to help you identify and watch out for red flags when apartment hunting for your next home.


Not everyone’s apartment building is as clean and well maintained as PepperTree Apartments! When touring apartments, it’s important to look for telltale signs of bugs. For example, if the apartment has termites, it’s possible that you’ll see small wings near the corners of rooms, and around the base molding, especially if it is wooden. Termites are also attracted to light during the evening so make sure you look toward the ceiling to see if any of these insects have gathered.

Another great way to watch out for bugs in a new apartment building is to check under the sinks and in the cabinets for cockroaches. Often, where there is one cockroach, there are many! Avoid the stress of dealing with exterminators and home remedies, and check for these things before committing to a new lease.

Unhappy Tenants

Another red flag to watch out for when apartment hunting is unhappy tenants. Taking the time to chat with current and former residents of the apartment building can help you identify any issues you may run into moving there. Looking online at reviews and forums is another great way to determine how residents truly feel about their living situation.
