GOOD LEASING FOLKS CAN EASE THE PROCESS. Im pleased to say that most of the leasing representatives I met at the more than two- dozen communities I visited that week were highly professional and efficient in discharging their obligation to enlighten me about their apartments. The really good ones cut to the chase and sized-up their offerings quickly. Many answered questions before I had asked them and usually with a few well chosen words and the aid of brochures, fact sheets and apartment floor plans and site maps. I was particularly glad when some representatives dispensed with filling out all the pre-application paperwork until after showing me their available units. As far as I was concerned, it was a complete waste of time for both of us unless and until I decided I wanted to live there.
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.
Over the course of my inspections, certain facts emerged as apparent truths. And, you should be aware that some of the foregoing comments apply to other areas of Florida and other types of housing (like condominiums and single family homes) as well as luxury apartment rentals. Readers are encouraged to verify similarities and differences across geographic areas and housing types based on their own experience.
