WHAT TO KNOW WHEN APARTMENT HUNTING IN LA

Moving is the worst.
  1. If the neighborhood is listed as "Hollywood Hills" it probably means "This is not in the Hollywood Hills".
  2. On-site laundry that isn't pictured means there is a washer/dryer in a cobwebbed, dark room in the back of the building.
  3. If the neighborhood says "Larchmont" it means "Koreatown, two miles from Larchmont".
  4. "Newly remodeled" means they're planning on redoing the dirt-filled carpet but aren't sure when because it's probably never.
  5. If the manager is rude to you on the phone, don't go with your heart and give them a chance to be nice because they're not. They're really mean.
