View Apartments

If you’re currently looking for a new living situation, you may be feeling a bit lost—and more than a little overwhelmed. Apartments are a great choice and are available in different floor plans and offer different amenities to cater to your needs and lifestyle. That said, there are a lot of apartments in Hickory, North Carolina to choose from. At Estates at Legends, we’re here to help make your next move as easy as possible. Below, we put together some helpful tips that will help you find the best apartment.


Consider Floor Plans

It’s important to find an apartment with a floor plan that works for you. There’s a huge difference between an apartment with one bedroom and one bath and an apartment with two bedrooms and two baths. The more people you live with (or plan on living with), the bigger space you will need—and budget for! Make sure to think about the type of floor plans that would be best before moving forward with your search.


Check Out Apartment Amenities

As you search for the perfect apartment, take a moment to look at what amenities are offered. A pool and/or hot tub is always a plus—and so are in-unit washers and dryers that eliminate the need to go to a laundry facility. Resident parking is something that you should look into as well. Also, don’t forget about storage options either: many apartments offer both indoor and outdoor spaces where you can store your belongings with ease.


Consider Apartment Location

When you are searching for your new apartment, it’s important to consider its location. Look at the surrounding neighborhood and what is offered nearby—like restaurants, grocery stores, nightlife spots, or coffee shops. Make sure that there are plenty of public transportation options as well because parking in busy areas can be both expensive and time-consuming! It’s also a benefit if your apartment is close to work and near major roads and highways.


Check Out Maintenance Policies

When you’re living in an apartment, there are bound to be maintenance issues. These things come up from time-to-time and even the most well-kept apartments will have some problem or another that needs to be addressed by a professional. It is important that you ask about what type of maintenance policies your potential new home has before signing any paperwork—and make sure this doesn’t present too many issues for you on a regular basis!
