What to Bring When Touring a Downtown Chicago Apartment

Many of our clients ask what they should bring with them when touring luxury Chicago apartments. Whether your are looking at one or two places or have a whole day of showings lined up, there are just a few things a renter should come prepared with on tour:

Photo Identification: It is absolutely essential to bring along a photo ID when touring apartments in Chicago. Each building places an emphasis on security and will not allow anyone to tour apartments without proper identification.

Notebook & Pen or Tablet: It’s helpful to bring along a small notepad and pen, or come prepared with your tablet for taking notes. This way you can make notes about each property, including the things you liked best and any additional information to help in your decision-making process.

Tape Measure: You’ll receive floor plans with square footage and dimension information about each apartment when on tour with Luxury Living Chicago, but it’s still helpful to bring along a tape measure to make sure any specific pieces of furniture you have will fit the way you want.

Camera: Bring along a digital camera or smartphone to snap a few photos in each unit, particularly of the view from the apartment to jog your memory post showing.

If you’re looking to make a decision on the spot about an apartment, it may be helpful to bring along a credit card, checkbook, proof of income (pay stubs or offer letter), and information to help you fill out your rental history. These materials will help get the ball rolling on the application process right away.

Don’t worry if you’re not prepared to select an apartment that day. Most apartments can be secured online after you’ve had time to choose which place feels most like home to you!
