When hunting for an apartment or place to live, you always enter with a set list of questions and wants. But what things should we be on the lookout for that might make even the best place seem like a bust? Click through the jump and tell us what's number 1 on your list of "Run, don't walk away!"

Sometimes it's easy to fall in love with a space. Maybe it has great lighting or architecture, maybe it's close to a bus line or grocery store. But what happens when we get all doe-eyed at our list of wants when we should be seeing signal flares or red flags instead.
Tell us below the one thing you wished someone would have told you to look out for when apartment hunting. What do you wish you would have looked for or asked about before signing your lease? Was the location really too busy to walk your dog after work? Did it have a mouse infestation? Did it need too much work and you ended up in over your head? Let us know below!
