5 Questions to Ask About Downtown Indianapolis Apartments

Downtown Indianapolis has experienced an apartment-construction boom over the past several years. With so many properties available, renters can be choosy about where they live – but sometimes, having too many options actually makes decisions more difficult.

Need some help evaluating downtown Indianapolis apartments? These questions may help you decide which apartment is right for you:

1. Is parking available?

Some apartments don’t offer parking – or they charge a high monthly fee for garage parking. Call to ask about parking availability and fees.

2. Is management on site?

If your roof suddenly starts leaking, you want some reassurance the property manager will attend to that issue quickly. Some apartments are under remote management, and it’s not uncommon for tenants of those properties to make repeated phone calls requesting maintenance assistance before someone shows up to make repairs. Look for a property with an on-site maintenance technician.

3. What’s the waste disposal system?

This may seem like an unimportant question, but when you don’t live on the ground floor, waste disposal can be a major inconvenience. A trash chute or valet trash service makes life much easier.

4. Can I tour the property?

A leasing agent or property manager should be willing to show you around, as well as show you any units that are available. If you try to schedule a visit to a property, but no one returns your call in a timely manner, that’s a good indicator of how promptly they’ll respond to maintenance requests.

5. What community amenities do you offer?

Amenities can enhance your quality of life. Access to a fitness center, a pool, and outdoor areas for relaxing or entertaining make an apartment community truly feel like home.  

Other Considerations

The high-rise apartment buildings close to Monument Circle often have waitlists, but newer properties on the edge of downtown may have more availability (at a more reasonable price).
