Are looking for a nice apartment for your family in Austin? If yes, then The Bowie can be a good choice and worth considering in your options. The Bowie is a great residential building located on the Bowie street in Austin, Texas. There are many options available for a buyer to choose from like you can buy or rent or can choose from a variety of apartment types. Like studio apartments, one bed or two bed apartments.
In this article, we are going to discuss some important guidelines which you should always look before you buy an apartment or a condo in the Bowie. As, buying or renting an apartment is not something which was done daily, thus you have to take a wise decision and should get all kind of information and clarify all your confusions before you buy or rent an apartment. So this guide is especially for the people who are going to buy an apartment at the Bowie but still others can get benefit from it too.
Overview and Analyze the Location:
Before starting to find out an apartment in any building or condo tower, I always recommend you to have a deep look and analyze its location. As, location of your next apartment is going to be the most vital thing for you, to live there for many next years. Analyzing the location actually points to have a deep overview of that location, rather it suits you or not, how far the market is and how frequently you have to go to the market late nights. It also includes the factor that how far this building is from your office and what will be the plan you use to go to your office daily, like is there any kind of easily accessible public transportation facility available for you to get there or if you use your own vehicle like a car, what should be its fuel costs?
I always recommend you to double check all those above listed requirements and find that are you easy in shifting to that location and does it really suits you or not. You should make a decision on the base of above statistics.
Check for Reviews – (Online or in Community)
Reviews are the best way to find the experiences of the previous residents of the building. You can check out the reviews for The Bowie and can decide which type of people is saying what about that building. As reviews differ from the category of people living in that area, for example it is possible that a building suits the people who love pets but that same building cannot be a good fit for the people who do not own pets.
You can check for reviews about The Bowie either online or locally by asking your friends or family members if they know anyone who lived in the bowie. This way you can easily figure out which kind of experience you will get by moving to The Bowie. You can also ask a Realtor for that area so he can give you a brief pros and cons for The Bowie building.

The Condition of that Condo:
When it comes to the condition of an apartment, it basically refers to taking an estimate of how much you are going to spend on this apartment after purchasing it. You have to keep a good care of your budget which is required once you have bought the apartment.
Make sure that the amenities you’ve listened about that building are true. Like if the rooftop pool is attracting you, and then you must make sure that the pool is also functional. Also if escalators are the thing that you badly need, then make sure they are functional and working properly.
You should also talk about what kind of permissions which you have in your apartment. Like about the paint jobs and repairing and renewals, also ask about the permissions to change the design or layout of your apartment.
