Let us help make the search for your next home easier. Here’s a quick run down on top questions to consider during your apartment rental search process.
 
Price - What does it cost for the apartment (studio, 1, 2, 3, or 4 bedroom) you’re looking for? What does that price include?
Neighborhood - What’s the neighborhood like? Where would you grocery shop? What restaurants, cafes, retail centers, entertainment and cultural venues are in the area?
Transportation - What would your commute to school or work look like? Is there public transportation nearby?
Lifestyle - Is the community pet friendly? What do the interior of the apartments look like? What community amenities are available? Are there any social events at the apartment community?

When is the Best Time to Rent an Apartment?

The best time of year to rent an apartment is when you need to, of course. But if you have some flexibility - are in a month-to-month lease or are crashing with your folks, for example - planning the timing of your move into an apartment rental can pay off.

Spring and Summer: In general, May through September is the busiest moving season. Kids are out of school, college students have left for the summer, and the good weather makes hauling items across town or country easier. The result is a dynamic rental market where inventory is typically higher, giving you a wider selection of apartments to choose from. 

Fall and Winter: During the fall and winter seasons, the apartment rental market typically slows down. The disadvantage of searching for an apartment during this time is inventory tends to be lower. But the upswing is that because demand for apartments is lower, you have a greater chance at finding a deal on rent. 

It’s September! Ask our staff whether we're offering any seasonal move-in specials.

Summer is almost over!

Time for one last vacation before the warm weather ends? Click below for tips to keep your home safe while you enjoy your vacation.

1. Let the landlord or office manager know you will be out of town. They can hold any mail or packages that come for you, and more importantly watch for any suspicious activity around your home.  
2. You can arrange to have a trusted friend or neighbor watch your home while you are out of town. Make sure to give your landlord or office manager the name of the person you have watching your home so they do not report this person as a trespasser.      
3. Unplug electronics that are not absolutely necessary while you are away. Most electronics still use power if you leave them plugged in. Examples of things to unplug include: TVs, video game systems, lamps, computers, and small kitchen appliances.
4. Clean your home before you leave. Remove any perishable foods from the refrigerator, take out the garbage, and sweep or vacuum.  Why ruin your vacation by having to clean when you return home?
5. Lastly, if you are not taking your car on a long road trip, make sure to remove all valuables and park it in a safe place.

Comment below with any of your own suggestions or ideas on keeping your home safe this summer.

How to Create an Entryway in your Apartment

There’s nothing like a well thought out front entryway to give you a sense of arriving home. But you may be experiencing this common issue in the apartment you rent: the front door opens directly into the living room. Without a formal foyer, your apartment home might lack a defined space to land. 

Here’s a list of clever ideas to create the feeling of an entryway even when there isn’t one. 

Take a seat. Add a small bench with storage cubes underneath for your shoes. 

Light it up. Add a lighting element to the area, either by stringing some lights around the doorframe or by adding a small lamp on an entryway table. 

Create a division. Put a beautiful room divider or shelving unit between the front entryway space you’re creating and the main room the door opens into.

Get artsy Add some art on the wall next to your front door. You can splurge on a colorful painting or add something as simple as framed photographs from your Instagram feed. 

Roll out the red carpet. Add a low lying doormat or rug by the door. The softness on your feet will be a physical cue that you’re home sweet home.

Now that the outside temperatures are finally warming up, its time to make use of any outdoor space at your apartment. Lounging outside after a long day of work can provide the needed relaxation you have been waiting for. Consider the following ideas if you have a patio or balcony that could use a freshen up for the summer season. 

* If you haven’t tackled the cleaning yet, it's time to remove the cobwebs, dirt and other debris that have accumulated. Be sure to give the deck a good sweep or wash. 
* If you haven’t already, it may be time to invested in an outdoor patio set. Or perhaps you can just freshen up any faded cushions or accent pillows to give your set a fresh feel.
* Plant a few of your favorite flowers or vegetables to add some color and fragrance to your patio in pots or garden boxes.
* Be sure you are making use of shelving units and hanging what you can to conserve space. Double duty furniture like deck boxes can be used as both a table and storage and can be quite handy. 
* And finally, its time to unwind and share your apartment's outdoor space with company. 

If you have any ideas to add we would like to hear them!

#July is a month to celebrate with family and friends!
Some of the best summer celebrations involve barbecues or cookouts. Click below for a few safety tips for your next get together. 

1. Whether you use a charcoal or gas barbecue always make sure to follow proper safety precautions when lighting, cooking, and storing the barbecue.  Follow factory guidelines when using lighter fluid or propane tanks, clean your grill regularly to prevent grease fires, and store your grill away from anything that is flammable or hazardous. 
2. You should know the proper cooking temperatures and preparation for the food you are serving at your get together (especially meat). The last thing you want to do is make your friends or family sick. 
3. Make sure to have plenty of drinking water on hand so your guests can stay well hydrated.
4. Provide shade or a covered area where your guests can get out of the sun and cool off.
5. If you will be serving alcoholic beverages at your get together, please enjoy responsibly and make sure your guests do so as well.
6. If you will be lighting off #fireworks at your get together make sure you use extreme caution when handling, lighting, and disposing of the fireworks.  Keep water or a fire extinguisher nearby, never point the fireworks toward anyone else, and always stand a safe distance from the devices.  Make sure you know local laws and regulations regarding pyrotechnics and fireworks.

The apartment community is new and to some extent clean, but I am warning anyone interested in renting a unit here. I just moved out of the community and here are the list of things you should consider before deciding to rent a unit here: 1- They charged me $300 for Apartment cleaning, carpet cleaning, and paint. All of the above were in excellent condition since I cleaned them myself. However, when I asked them about the fees, the answer of was as follows (quote from management): "The cleaning and carpet cleaning are normal charges after resident moves out of the unit. When you moved in your Pat was professionally clean so when you move out we need to clean it for the next resident. Maintenance take pictures of the unit after resident move out as well. Did you pay someone to clean your unit? We need a deep cleaning and carpet cleaning. If you did pay someone to clean it please provide the receipt so I can talk to my manager about it." This is an email they sent me yesterday! Apparently, one has to do professional cleaning before move-out! 2- The elevators are broken and out of order almost all the time. You can expect to go up and down the stairs for the most part of your stay. 3- The fire alarm goes off almost every month, not mentioning the fact that one night it went off 13 times and no one could sleep until they went to work in the morning! All of them, false alarms! Imagine what happens to those with kids 4- The management team is never in the office, and when you need to pick up your package, you have to wait for hours. 5- The walls are thin and you can hear, with no effort, your neighbor's private discussions! 6- The trash chute is really nasty and unclean. 7- Bugs are all over the place. 8- No parking for guests or people with two cars. 9- Multiple break-ins to cars! Last week they had 3 on one day! 10- No shopping or stores in the vicinity.

Created a maintenance work request on a Sunday (clogged kitchen sink), what a mistake. No one seems to have a maintenance schedule, I just would like to know when someone is going to fix it (hopefully today).
