Renting a 3 bedroom apartment in Santa Barbara, CA

With 3 apartments in Santa Barbara, CA, it can be hard finding just the right 3 bedroom apartment. Before you even start thinking about size, price and features, you have to choose a neighborhood. And that’s no easy task, considering that, depending on the area, you get a wide range of rentals in Santa Barbara, CA, from very cheap to very expensive. Then you also have to factor in the distance to work, kindergarten and/or school. It’s an important decision, as most likely you’re going to spend the next couple of years in this apartment with your family. You are not just searching for an apartment to live in, you’re searching for a home. The internet is supposed to help, but it only confuses you further with redundant lists of things you should pay attention to. We know the feeling very well. Let us give you just one piece of advice: take the rational path and get your priorities right. The only person who knows what type of apartment you need is you. Create a mental or written list of things you absolutely cannot live without, filter accordingly. If a balcony or a garage is absolutely crucial, then head on to the filters section and check the ones you want. This way you will save time by skipping the apartments that don’t meet your criteria.
