A few things to avoid when renting an apartment in Athens Ohio

If you are looking for an apartment for rent in Athens Ohio, here are a few red flags you should watch out for.


Indoor waterfalls – While a landlord may tell you it’s the work of architectural genius when you are looking at the rental, you should know that it’s probably just a leak.

Miami University posters on the wall – It’s not a good sign for an apartment for rent in Athens Ohio. If the landlord has to pull back yellow tape to show you the apartment – it may not be in the best shape.

Actual red flags – I don’t know what it means, but I would be worried about red flags.

Apartments that are billed as “great for a fight club” – First of all, they shouldn’t be talking about fight club. Second of all, most rentals that are homes to fight clubs usually are not in great shape.

If the landlord tells you not to say Beetlejuice three times – Be warned because the landlord will likely make bad 80s references to you often if you rent the place.

Optional doors – You will want actual doors. Don’t rent a place that doesn’t have doors.

A rental unit built out of straw or sticks – These rarely hold up to the wind of a strong wolf, and you need to be aware of this. Most wolf wind experts today recommend rental units built out of bricks. In a related note, don’t even look at the rental units that are built out of candy, as the landlord will probably be an evil witch.

If the lease is written in crayon – Crayons are often a red flag and indicate you may be renting from a kindergarten student. Most likely, the rental will be pretend.
