Setting Up Your Budget
Before you start your search, it is essential that you know your budget. That way, you won’t have to waste time seeing properties that are too far out of your price-range. Make sure to budget tenant insurance and hydro costs with the total amount of rent you’re willing to pay. Also keep in mind that you will most likely have to put down a deposit for first and last month’s rent. Make sure you have enough to put down an offer immediately if you find the right property.
