While brownstones can be found from Boston to West Virginia along the East Coast, and as far inland as Chicago and Detroit, brownstone-style architecture is synonymous with New York City. Brownstones in NYC have gone from simple turn-of-the-century buildings made of a sturdy building material, to a level of popular culture.

When an individual decides to move to one of the new Jersey City apartments, there are a lot of different items to consider. There are some great steps a potential renter can take to help make sure it is exactly what the potential renter would like.
Researching Jersey City Apartments
First and foremost, it is important to decide what an individual can realistically spend comfortably on one of the available Jersey City apartments. It is important not to cut the rental budget too close to an individual’s available funds. It is always important to have a cushion in case of a personal emergency. A general guideline when trying to decide what to spend is up to thirty percent of an individual’s take-home income on rent. From this number, an individual can then look at other budget items to see if this number makes sense. Depending on lifestyle, this number could change drastically.
Look both online and at local papers for listings of available Jersey City apartments. There are a number of different websites that can provide great local real estate information for the perspective apartment hunter. If an individual is looking at a complex try looking for reviews about the complex. If an individual decides to actually go and look at an apartment in a complex, try to meet a few people who live in the complex and ask their opinions about the location. Their first-hand thoughts could prove invaluable when working towards a decision of one of the available Jersey City apartments.
Looking at Jersey City Apartments
Once the list of Jersey City apartments is narrowed down, make sure to have a talk with the land lord. Ask about rent increases, utility costs, responsibility for issues with snow removal or minor repairs. It is also worthwhile to ask if the land lord would consider lowering the rent slightly for a long-term lease (more than one year). This could prove useful if someone is considering an apartment that is slightly higher than the anticipated budget. However, be prepared to walk away incase the land lord is not willing to negotiate and the rent will be too high for the perspective renter and can could potentially cause a budget crunch.
It is also important to conduct a thorough inspection prior to signing a lease for one of the Jersey City apartments under consideration. Consider taking a video or photos. If any damage is found, make sure it is noted in the lease. This way when the renter decides to move again, it does not become the responsibility of the renter to make repairs to damage they did not cause.
