Tips for Touring a New Apartment

Searching for a new place to call home can be a bit overwhelming and take up a large portion of your time. However, there is a list of apartment must-haves and have-nots that you should be on the lookout for while touring apartment complexes. While it’s sometimes difficult to remember every aspect of a new home, it’s important to keep these things top of mind. 

Safe Community

Your home should be a safe place that you can enjoy and relax. However, not all apartment complexes live up to this expectation. While touring your future apartment, be sure to take all of the necessary measures to ensure that your home will be safe.


It is extremely important to be aware of the environment and community around your apartment complex. At Executive Lodging, our 5 locations are located in safe and well-known areas of Memphis.. From Collierville to Harbor Town, your stay at an Executive Lodging rental will be safe, secure, and comfortable. 


At Executive Lodging, we want to provide our customers with outstanding comfort in their homes. Part of keeping our residents safe is making sure that not everyone can enter the community that they live in. For the convenience and safety of our residents, our units are located in gated communities, ensuring we are in control of who enters the complex.



Useful Amenities

Another aspect of apartment living that you should look into is the quality of amenities offered while living in a certain community. For many apartment communities, amenities are few while rates are high. However, at Executive Lodging locations, we offer our residents a multitude of amenities to take advantage of during their stay in one of our apartments, including a fitness center, clubhouse, business center, and pool to name a few.


At Executive Lodging, we understand that appliances are no small part of your lodging. Therefore, we offer our residents a list of major and minor appliances including: 

  • Dishwasher
  • Microwave
  • Full-size refrigerator
  • 4 top stove
  • Toaster
  • Coffee pot
  • Full-size oven
  • Disposal


Even the little things such as silverware, plates, dish towels, and more can become overwhelming to purchase and store at your apartment. For the convenience of our guests at Executive Lodging, all of these small details are completely taken care of. We provide our residents with a kitchen stocked with necessities that they will need during their stay. 


Our guests’ satisfaction is of top priority to us. Therefore, each of our apartments includes furniture that can make the space feel more comfortable. Our apartments at Executive lodging come fully furnished and include:

  • Bedroom: Queen Bed, Dresser, 2 Nightstands, 32” TV
  • Living Room: Sofa, Sofa Chair, Coffee/End Tables, TV Stand w/32”TV
