Rapid Re-Housing Apartment Comparison Checklist

September 10, 2014  |  

Clients may want to use this checklist to compare different apartments, especially if they are viewing a number of units in one day. Depending on the client’s situation, he or she may not have a lot of options, especially if the vacancy rate in the community is very low. Nonetheless, encourage clients to view at least a couple of different units, particularly if there are children in the household. Moving frequently can be very disruptive to children – especially if the children have to enroll in a new school – so it’s important that the client find a unit (and neighborhood) that will work for them in the long term.
