What’s on your list?

When you’re looking for the best rental apartment, there are many factors to consider. Narrowing down your search can be tough. But finding the best fit for you doesn’t have to take a lot of time. Here are some quick tips to take to the leasing office: 

1. Location, location, location

Gain insight into the culture of a potential apartment community by asking about the location. What does the specific location offer residents? What if you could have easy access to downtown Boston, but come home to a peaceful retreat? What if you could enjoy modern amenities in an established, well-built hilltop community with gorgeous views of the ocean, mountains and downtown Boston? Hint: Altitude has got it all.

2. Amenities

Basic is fine, but why not go for more? Inquiring about amenities for all seasons is particularly important when you’re dealing with Boston winters. What kind of indoor entertainment does the rental property offer when temperatures dip?

A modern amenity center is also key. And you could probably use more than just a fitness center — ask about other spaces, too. You may need a conference room or a clubroom to host a party. Altitude offers all of that in addition to unique amenities like a yoga room, children’s play room, and theatre.

Beautiful grounds can enhance your summertime experience. But think bigger than just a pool. Altitude also offers tennis and basketball courts, and a dog park all on 43 lush acres.

3. Security

Inquire about security early in the conversation. Security should be a priority for any apartment manager and meet your personal comfort levels. Are the entrances to the community secured? With gated access 24/7 and keycard building entry, you can trust Altitude puts your security front and center.

4. Public Transportation

No one likes a complicated commute. Several nearby transportation options can make your everyday life so much easier. How does the rental community you’re considering hold up when it comes to public transportation?

At Altitude in Malden, you have two MBTA bus stops on the property, providing direct access to downtown Boston and ensuring you return home with energy to spare.

5. Upgrades

Asking about upgrades is one of the best ways to get to the bottom of how much value you are getting for your hard-earned rent money. How large are the units? Have they been renovated? What are the laundry facilities like? How much are utilities?

A look at Altitude shows spacious, fully-renovated apartments, featuring everything from stainless steel appliances and granite countertops to carpeted bedrooms and large balconies. Doing laundry is easy and interactive with the Maytag 360 Clothespin technology and a next-door laundry lounge. And that last question about utilities? You’d be happy to know your rent payment covers everything. 

6. Perks

When you are checking out a possible rental apartment, ask what sets that property apart from the others. With panoramic city and ocean views, standout amenities, and balconies for savoring the sunset, Altitude is one of a kind. Here, you can have it all.
