When Jenny Mickleson of Austin, Tex., went looking for her apartment she had a hard time figuring out which were the best rentals. "It wasn't that I couldn't find a good place, but I just kept thinking the next one might be better," she says. "I had the hardest time saying yes!"

Some people are lucky enough to have Mickleson's problem. In cities such as San Francisco and New York -- where the markets can be a lot less renter-friendly -- a great rental apartment in the right price range can be tough to come by.

But no matter where you live -- or are looking to move -- here are a few great tips to make sure when you sign that lease you are signing for the best rental apartment that your market has to offer.
