Add your own area rugs, even if they apartment is already carpeted. Using area rugs pulls a room together and changes the atmosphere in a room dramatically. There are rugs available for all tastes and at all price points. If your style tends toward traditional, look for oriental style rugs. Those with a modern or contemporary flair can seek out bold geometrics or abstract swirls of color.
Apartments with lots of amenities are typically owned by large property management companies and are more likely to check your credit. So, if you have bad credit, stay away from the apartments with pools and workout rooms. An individually-owned condo or townhouse probably wont require a credit check, especially if its newer. Chances are the owner hasnt been through many tenants and probably hasnt had a tenant skip out on the rent, so they dont have much reason to do credit checks.
You can ask questions, look at all the websites, and still miss a hidden gem. Sometimes you need to get in your car and drive. You may pass apartments for rent while you are learning the area. You can either stop in and talk to the management or go home and look for more information before heading out.
When you move into an apartment you can expect to have to live with some limitations such as white walls and no painting allowed, no nail holes in the walls and after a while, it can seem overwhelmingly oppressive without some sort of personalization for your home. However, with a bit of creative finagling, you can create apartment decor that fits your style perfectly.
