The One Thing You Should Never Do When Apartment Hunting

March 29, 2016 by Isabel Jones
shefinds | Shop

While we all dream of owning that penthouse apartment overlooking Central Park, most of us aren’t in a position to make that a reality. As with most things, it’s easy to skip over the core details that stand between you and your ideal apartment. One of these important details is price. It’s so, so tempting to entertain all sorts of what-if scenarios when it comes to money — you could win the lottery, earn a promotion, get an inheritance! But if there’s one area where you most definitely should not play your odds, it’s financial security.

When you’re apartment shopping, it’s vitally important that you set a budget and stick to it. As in, don’t entertain fantasy options. If the “perfect apartment” is out of your price range, then it’s definitely not the perfect apartment.

I try to use this same principle when going clothes shopping — if I see an item outside of my budget, I will resist the urge to try it on. Why dangle the carrot when you know it’ll only lead to pain — either the stress of out-spending, or the despair of knowing you can’t have the “perfect” so and so… So, bottom line: if the price is too high, MOVE ON.
