There are many options for apartments for rent in Sparks, NV. As a future tenant, you want to make sure you choose the best place for you.

Take an in-person tour and make note of apartment conditions, amenities, and community. Don’t be afraid to have a written checklist and questions for the landlord to ensure everything checks out!

Apartment Conditions

When you first walk into your potential apartment, check to ensure conditions are up to your standards, which include:

  • Overall cleanliness. Make sure there is no mold, mildew, or stains.
  • Clean and durable floors and carpets free of stains, soft spots, or damage.
  • Free of leaks and water damage. Check around sinks, floors, windows, and cupboards to ensure no leaky pipes, faucets, or water damage. Check that water pressure is sufficient in sinks, showers, and tubs.
  • Functional lighting and electrical. Check light switches and outlets to ensure they are working correctly and that you can access the circuit breaker(s).


Safety should be a top priority for you and your landlord. Ensure there are easy-access fire exits and an unexpired fire extinguisher on the premises. Check all windows and doors to ensure they are secure and in working order. Some Sparks, NV, apartments, like Seasons at Stonebrook, have Brivo Smart Home security access for each unit with a keyless entry, self-monitored security system, and doorbell camera. Also, check that the smoke alarms, sprinkler systems, and carbon monoxide detectors are all functioning correctly.

Apartment Amenities

Apartment living is convenient and stress-free due principally to the amenities included with your rent. Find out which amenities your apartment offers and ensure they are what you expect and need, including:

  • Internet and cable connection. What internet speed is provided? Does it meet your needs if you work or recreate from home?
  • Pet policies. Are pets allowed? Is there sufficient access to walking trails, parks, and outdoor space?
  • Storage. Is there enough storage space in your future apartment? Is additional storage space available if needed?
  • Trash removal. How is trash removal handled? Is there a trash valet service?
  • Laundry services. Are a washer and dryer included in the apartment? If not, are there shared laundry services available on-site?


The kitchen is the heart of the home, so it helps to ensure that everything is as it should be! Check cupboards to make sure they open smoothly. Look for signs of vermin. Test the oven, stove, refrigerator, and other appliances for functionality. Lastly, consider measuring the space to ensure it fits your dining furniture.

Rooms & Bathrooms

Ensure each room has two exits, including a working, secure window. Check storage and closet spaces, nooks, and crannies. For the bathroom(s), check proper ventilation, like a working fan, and that the toilet flushes correctly and efficiently. Check to see how long it takes for hot water to arrive.

Shared Amenities

Take a tour of the shared amenities to see if they are well-kept and not too busy, including common spaces, gyms, or pools. Find out whether there is a reservation system or extra cost for shared amenities. Also, check the following:

  • Secure entrances. Are entrances and exits locked and secure?
  • Parking. How many spots are available for each unit? Where can guests park? Is parking covered or secured?
  • Mail and Packages. Where are packages delivered? Is there a secure room for storage and pickup?
  • Emergency Maintenance. Is someone available for after-hour emergencies? Is someone available during the day?

Apartment Community

Lastly, touring an apartment can give you a feel for a place to see if you can call it home. When you are there, pay attention to noise levels, the surrounding neighborhood, and its location relative to your work, grocery store, restaurants, and shopping. If it is a place you want to call home, you have found a good fit!
