Renters, Tell Us Your "Beige Flags" For House Or Apartment Hunting

In case you have somehow escaped the "beige flag" content that's been trending all over social, let's get you up to speed. It started as dating slang signifying someone could be really boring and has since evolved to be about mannerisms that might be a bit strange or quirky but not exactly a dealbreaker.

If you're a current, past, or upcoming renter, I want to hear from you! What are your beige flags when hunting for a new house or apartment?

Maybe the house you're eyeing has a different type of funky wallpaper in every room?

Perhaps the layout is a bit wonky and you have to walk through a closet or bathroom to enter the bedroom?

Or, maybe it's something as simple as having too many windows or no windows at all?
