  3. What’s not included and what is the average monthly cost for electric, water, gas, internet, cable and garbage disposal?
  4. Do you have a pet? Factor in the deposit and fees for the pet at the apartment community and monthly cost for food, medical and grooming care.
  5. Do not forget the insurance before you sign your lease.  See how much it will cost monthly to insure your apartment or house.
  6. Do not forget you will need fuel for your scooter or car‚ or are you going to use the bus?
