Also check the size of the water heater. I once leased a very pretty apartment and neglected to do so. Turned out it was a small water heater located under the kitchen counter. It didn't put out enough hot water to fill the bathtub-- a huge deal for me since that's my way to decompress after a long day. Plus if my roommate took a shower it was at least 30 mins before I could take one. We ended up on split schedules- she took her shower at night and I took mine in the morning. Ever since then, I ask to see the water heater. I've had a few realtors tell assure me the place had a big one, but I always insist on actually seeing it myself. A couple of times it turned out to be the same small one that I'd lived with years back.
