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.

Want to start your spring and summer off on the right foot? A clean house will surely help! Here are a few insightful tips to help you conquer all of your cleaning tasks for the coming months.

1. Work from the top down, inside to outside, to avoid getting what you just cleaned dirty again.
2. Do one room or one area of a room at a time to avoid unfinished jobs. The satisfaction of seeing one room sparkle will make the hard work feel like it's worth the effort.
3. When tidying, reduce trips around the house by temporarily depositing items in one organized area near by. Once you’ve finished cleaning you can find those miscellaneous items a proper place. 
4. Efficiency is key, so clean two things at once. While laundry is going, scrub the shower stall.
5. Make small repairs on easy to fix items….If you're not handy, hire someone who is, or better yet, look up a fix-it-yourself video and learn while you clean. 
6. Invest in a good pair of rubber gloves to protect your skin and nails from cleaning chemicals.
7. Dust before vacuuming or cleaning the floor. Try an extendable feather or lambswool duster for reaching above window casings, door frames, and corners. Household rags are invaluable for jobs requiring a damp cloth – natural fibres work best.
8. Buy a mop with a squeeze mechanism and a decent-size heavy-duty pail – ones with a measuring scale help get soap-to-water ratios correct.
9. Don't stand your brooms on their bristles. It will destroy their shape and diminish their effectiveness. Instead, get a broom holder or hook at your local home improvement store. 
10. Use a Swiffer for light dusting, or your favorite broom or vacuum attachment to clean hardwood floors. Then damp-mop with a mild cleaner such as Murphy Oil Soap to make your floors sparkle and shine.

3. “Gingerbread” Houses - use graham crackers to to create a mini “gingerbread” house
4. Windows - make use of your window space by creating beautiful snowflakes with a glue gun
5. Serving Tray - if you’re hosting guests, consider a tiered serving tray (stacked vertically) to save table space
6. Ornaments - get creative with your ornament decorations and hang them from your ceiling - bonus points for hanging them on lights

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.

Summer is here!

Click below for tips to help you have a happy and healthy summer! 

1. Do you want to save energy, money, and keep your home cool this summer? Remember to keep windows and blinds closed during the hotter hours of the day, turn off any unnecessary lights or appliances when not in use, and use ceiling or window fans at night to cool your home  

2. During summer we all like to open up windows and let the fresh air flow through our homes. Unfortunately, many people forget you should always close and lock your windows when leaving home whether it is just for the day or for a long summer vacation. 

3. There is nothing worse than getting into your car when it has been sitting in the sun all day. Park your car in a shaded or covered parking spot. Over time this can also help save the paint job and interior of your car. 

4 Get outdoors to enjoy your favorite sport or hobby, stay hydrated, and regularly apply sunscreen. These simple things can go a long way to keeping you happy and healthy this summer

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 invest 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!

Start 2015 off fresh with these green cleaning and organizing tips!

Below are a few tips to spruce up your apartment for the new year. 

1) Go through cabinets, closets, and desks to find and recycle all unneeded paper products.
2) Feeling the burden of an overstuffed closet? Give your old clothes a second life; donate any unused clothing to Goodwill!
3) Recycle your electronic products. Most electronics stores will take your old or broken products and recycle them. Avoid tossing those in the trash!
4) Use eco-friendly cleaning supplies. Most stores carry a great selection of environmentally friendly cleaning products, pick some up on your next shopping trip. Or, better yet - make your own! Simple household items like baking soda and vinegar can be used for any number of jobs.
5) Freshen up! Simmering water, citrus peel, and fresh mint or basil will lighten up the air in your apartment without any added toxins from synthetic air-fresheners (and it will save you money as well!). Make sure you never leave your stove unattended. 

Why wait until spring, when cleaning can be this simple? Keeping it green will help your apartment stay healthy and toxin free. What are your favorite go-to green cleaning or organizing tips? Comment below to share your ideas!

#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.

Best property in Liberty!!!

My son's Father is renter there and has moved another family into his 2 bedroom apartment. There are two families, a total of 3 adults, 1 teenager and 1 baby all sharing 2 rooms. They obviously do not hold their tenants accountable for moving other's in after they signed their initial lease. So, there is 20 year old male, his teenage girlfriend, their 1 year old baby and my 14 year old son all sharing 1 bedroom!!!! I am pursing this with DFS currently but cannot beleive an apartment complex would allow this. I feel sorry for anyone that is neighbors with them. Carrington obviously is hard up for tenants. Face it they have the little sign boy standing on the corner of Flintlok and 152 waving his advertising sign each week. I might also mention they rented to him without performing a credit check or checking for pets. He has my cat living there which he has refused to give me for 3 years. He also is in Bankruptcy, had his home repossesed and has had multiple warrants for his arrest of the past few years for several crimminal acts. I sure would not want him or his sub-leasors to be my neighbors! Pathetic!

I have lived here for 1.5 years and its been great so far. The floorplans and the grounds are beautiful and the staff is helpful. I like that the office is open 7 day a week and the maintenance staff is available 24 hours a day. The fitness center is clean and the community offers a variety of activities for the residents. I personally cannot think of anything negative to say about Carrington Place. Sure I can hear my neighbors from time to time and I have encounter an agent on occasion that was not as helpful as they could have been, but I've yet to have an experience that has made my stay her anything but excellent. The price is a little high, but you get what you pay for and I think that Carrington Place is worth it!

I was excited to move in when we first looked at the place, but now I have a very different opinion. They make it EXTREMELY difficult to pay rent from not being open, no rent drop box, no online pay, and everytime you do it over the phone you have to sign a form (seems to defeat the purpose of paying over the phone). We have been accused multiple times of not picking up after our dog so that they can charge us the $25 dollar fee. Not once have they been able to tell me when the incident occured or if they could even prove that it was my dog. They did not back off until I told them I would bring the bags in to prove I was picking up after him. I am very fed up with this place!! Do not live here.
