James asks…

My apartment is a mess! Are there any companies that will send someone out to help me get it organized?

My family and I just moved from a rather large apartment in Germany into a normal sized 3 bedroom 2 level apartment in Denver. I’m looking for some assistance getting everything in its place – Once that’s done, its all a matter of upkeep.

Sandra asks…

About how much would utilities cost for a small apartment?

I am looking to move into a 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment in Denver, Colorado. I have never lived on my own so I don’t know what utilities would cost. Can anyone give me a rough estimate of what I’d be paying per month?

Administrator answers:

Thatt can vary . Your best acurate bet would be to call the electric company for the area your looking at and ask them what the montly average is for the apartment you are looking at.
Ps. Some apartments pay for electric.

Sandy asks…

What are typical utilities paid for when renting an apartment?

Also, how much is average per each in a single one bedroom apartment?

Administrator answers:

Depends on where you live. In the Denver/Boulder area of colorado, typical paid utilities are water and (less often) trash. I’ve heard of all utilities being paid for at a couple of locations, though. The cost of utilities in general will vary based on where you live. Going by what mine were, figure about 100/mo for electricity and gas and 30 or so for trash (water’s always been paid where i lived)

The avg cost of a 1bdrm apartment will vary wildly depending on where you want to live. Out in middle-of-nowhere colorado, you’re probably looking at about 400/mo for something decent. In the middle of manhattan, you’re probably looking at something closer to 2000/mo

Mandy asks…

What apartments are good in Denver?

I’m not familiar with Denver, but I’m relocating there. I have tried to search for 3 bedroom apartments that are under 1000 a month. But on www.apartmentratings.com, I keep finding nothing but bad comments about every apartment I have looked at. What do you recommend? Or, are there any apartments that you would stay clear of?
anywhere in Denver, my husband is getting transferred there. He doesn’t care about commuting, because it’s what we do in Jersey, so we’re used to it.

Administrator answers:

I wouldn’t take apartmentratings.com too seriously. Remember that people tend to complain about something a whole lot more than they will complement something. And most of the posters on there are a) ex employees with a grudge; b) renters who did something wrong and got caught and are trying to get revenge; and c) people who think they should get A quality homes for C quality rent.

You should definitely know the area you want to live in first. Downtown, close to downtown (Cherry Creek or Washington Park area), suburbs (Lakewood, Aurora, Highland’s Ranch, Broomfield). Once you know how close to downtown you want to be, then I would call a locator service, such as Apartments by Cort, or Apartment Guyz, someone like that. You can tell them what you want, your price range and any particulars and they can narrow it down for you.

Also, I don’t know where you’re coming from, but prices may be higher here. As a rule of thumb, always choose an apartment at the top of your price range. You’ll be signing a lease for a certain amount of time, and nothing will make you more uncomfortable than living somewhere cheap because you thought you’d save money that way. Pay more for rent, save money elsewhere.
