If you’ve ever looked for a Kamloops apartment rental, you know that finding an apartment can be a series of compromises. First, you may have to compromise on location if you can’t find something available, or something you like in the location you desire. This happens all too often because new apartment rentals are rare in the Kamloops area.
If you’re in the market for a Kamloops apartment rental, the following checklist will help you identify tell-tale warning signs that could save you some headaches in the future. Unfortunately, many renters aren’t as discerning as they could be, because it’s difficult to be “picky” in a rental market with vacancy rates of about 1.3%.

If you’re searching for a 1 bedroom apartment for rent in Kamloops, unfortunately your quest may result in frustration and disappointment. New Kamloops apartments in a good neighbourhood and central location are hard to come by, so many apartment hunters settle for what they can get.

Traditionally, TRU students and staff have had to take what they can get, renting an older, outdated apartment near campus, a spare room in someone’s home, or an apartment advertised as being “near TRU”, which really aren’t that close at all.
