Moving into a new apartment is a big step, especially if this is the first one that you decide to use to make your own home. You may be excited to jump right in and make your own home in no time, but you do need to consider all of the costs that come with this decision. It isn’t as simple as signing the lease and getting the keys; there are often some expenses that you will need to pay for long before you move into the unit.


For example, the landlord will often as for an application fee to help cover the cost of your credit check and background check. Then there is the security deposit, which you can get back if you take good care of the apartment, the first and last month’s rent, and any other deposits that may be necessary to move into the place. You may also need to pay for packing supplies and movers to help you get all of your items out of the current location and into a new one.


This is why it is a good idea to be financially stable and comfortable before you make the move. Saving up for this is a great idea. Costs will add up so quickly, much faster than you would think, when moving house and you need a way to cover them. You may also need to add in some living expenses for a bit after the move as you get settled. To avoid some of the financial problems during the relocation, you need to start saving at least a few months ahead of time.


A good rule of thumb to consider is to have enough money saved up to pay all of the moving costs, the first three months’ of rent or more, your utility bills, the living expenses for a few months, and all of the required security deposits. If you can save a bit more for the emergencies that come up, that is even better.
