5 tips to find and successfully secure your rental property

When it comes to finding apartments to rent in Manchester, there are a number of steps you can take to make sure you find the home of your dreams. You just need to know what they are! So, we’ve put together our top 5 tips to help you successfully find and secure your rental property.

1.) Work out exactly what it is you are looking for before you start looking for it! 

It will really help you narrow your search if you clearly define what type of apartment you are looking for. Firstly, you need to think about what the most important aspects for you are. Is it the size, the location or amenities - or are you just looking for luxury apartments in Manchester? Would a second bedroom be useful, is a location next to great transport links important – or are both of these factors essential? It really pays to take a moment to clearly understand what your needs are.

This is also a good time to set your budget – by knowing exactly what you can spend each month, can really help to speed up your search.

2.) Location location location!

It’s important to know the sort of location you are looking for. It’s all very well thinking you want to be in the city centre – but exactly where? We have a number of different flats to rent in Manchester each with superb locations. As well as the area you are looking for, a good location can mean good transport links too. Do you want to live somewhere near a Metrolink or train station? Or are you looking to rent an apartment in Manchester close to the office or your favourite bars and restaurants?
