Like many of my generation I left fast pace, aggressive city living for a kinder gentler lifestyle in South Florida. I sought temporary living accommodations because I was sure that my housing wants and needs would become more apparent and defined once I settled into the tropical lifestyle assuming they didnt change altogether. So, I set out to rent an apartment from among South Floridas abundant supply of luxury apartment communities.
Although I had done my best to winnow my list, I still had too many communities to evaluate in detail within the weeks deadline I had set for myself. I also knew that the kind of evaluation I needed to do would require more than a seat-of-the-pants review of the various apartment websites and paperback guides that I had at my disposal. It was time to get out in the field and kick a little dirt and wrestle with some bricks and mortar.
The best single place for a maintenance inspection is the pool and its surrounding lounge area, which usually is the most popular common area within a community. Most leasing tours for prospective tenants begin with a tour of the pool area, which is usually centrally located adjacent to the propertys leasing and property management center. As a communitys showcase, these areas are usually better maintained than other less visible areas. So, if the pool area needs a renovation, you should wonder how the rest of the property looks.
