Apartment Hunting : The Hunt

Buyer Beware: What you don't know when shopping for an apartment can hurt you! Go ahead and ask those uncomfortable questions before you sign the lease. Raise your hand if you love moving! Hahaha, just kidding. Hunting for an apartment can be a super exciting time in your life…but it can also be one of the most stressful things other than death, marriage, or starting a new job. Yikes! Did you know landlords must legally comply with Fair Housing laws? I once went on a showing with a landlord who violated five Fair Housing laws in a sentence. I wasn’t even mad; I was impressed. One sentence!
