When looking for a new apartment, there are many things to consider! This community will be your new home and oasis, and you want to make sure it has everything on your list. How do you know what items to look for? Let our Rosetti team help! We’ve put together a list of what to look for when choosing a new apartment complex below.


One of the highest priorities we typically see with our residents is the location of their community! While they want to be in a great area with things to do, they also want to be close to their work. Keep your daily routine in mind, and create a radius of your work, school, and other activities or areas that are important to you. This will help you to decide on the amount of time you would be willing to commute. The great news is that our communities are all centrally located in the Capital Region and offer short commute times to major areas like Albany, Saratoga, Latham, and more.

Floor Plan

Before you begin your search, you’ll need to decide on how much space you need in your apartment! Are you looking for a one-bedroom, two-bedroom, do you need an office or a den? Think about the needs of yourself or your family, and keep in mind the space and storage you will require when looking at a new community.


Amenities play a huge role in your apartment complex! Think about what items you would like to have, or must have, in your community and apartment. Would you prefer to have an in-unit or in-building laundry room, do you want a pool or fitness center? Add these items to your checklist so you can be sure you are finding a community that has everything you need.

Pet Friendly

If you have a furry friend in tow, you’ll need to narrow down your search to apartment complexes that are pet friendly. Another important factor to keep in mind is to check pet requirements and policies! These are incredibly important as a pet friendly complex can have specific rules that you need to abide by. We have many apartments that welcome cats, check out our pet policy!

On-site Maintenance and Property Management Services

An important feature of any apartment community is the maintenance team! When looking at apartments, ensure that you will have access to the maintenance team or the ability to submit maintenance tickets. Our Rosetti communities provide 24/hour on-site maintenance teams to ensure that our residents receive high-quality service, especially for emergencies.

Other services you want to look out for are landscaping and snow removal! We know that having a beautiful and well-kept home is important to our tenants, and our team is dedicated to keeping our landscaping and parking lots clean.
