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 fibers 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.

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.

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

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 fartsy. 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 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 barbeques or cookouts. Click below for a few safety tips for your next get together. 

1. Whether you use a charcoal or gas barbeque always make sure to follow proper safety precautions when lighting, cooking, and storing the barbeque.  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.

we lived here and really enjoyed it. Granted it's been a while but our apartment was great, we had great neighbors, and the maintenance staff was always quick and friendly. we never had any issues with any of the office personnel either. If we ever get to come back to the springs, I wouldn't think of staying any place else!

Thank you so much for your feedback, Tamara! I'm thrilled to see that you enjoyed your home and look forward to having you as a resident again should the opportunity arise!

I just moved in here into a two bedroom a month ago and I have no complaints. this is the nicest place I have lived so far in Colorado springs. I love how the buildings only have 4 apartments so you don't have many neighbors so it's fairly quiet.I like how they pick up your trash and recycling from your door 5 days a week.love my kitchen appliances. And I like how if we have issues we have security here we can contact instead of having to call the police. I love having a washer and dryer in my apartment too. Love having Windows,a balcony and just everything about the inside of my apartment is great. The one thing I wish I could change is that the kitchen was bigger. But overall I like it here.and the apartment etc book said they have walk in closets here which is not the case.and I like how the management here is caring and kind to the residents.and being across the street from king soopers is nice and I love the area and being close to fort Carson too is great. Overall I really like it here.

My car, a neighbor's car, and my fiance's car have all had broken windows and break-ins. The gate is always left open. Security is seen maybe once a week, I have no faith in them to respond were I to need it(being 5'2 and living alone this is a major concern). There is trash left everywhere half the week. I've had ants from day one. You can hear plainly the kids outside all the time, there was a period for nearly two weeks where they were throwing rocks unchecked loudly at light poles and cars, leaving one vehicle badly scratched. Not dog friendly at all, they will charge you bogus charges for not cleaning up after your dog such to the point that I now video tape myself every time I bring my dog out for concern of jipped out another $50(which they automatically add to your rent so there's no contesting it). Upon the lease being expired, they will perform a white glove inspection and if it's not in better condition than when you received it, you're out $2000. Furthermore, their records are poor and unprofessional, with no records of additional residents which means a college student living with me cannot prove residency and thus is delayed from going to college another year. It looks like a lovely, wonderful apartment complex, when in reality they WILL screw you over.

Won't answer phones or return emails when you have questions about your rent. The pest control you get charged monthly for apparently doesn't work because mice in your apartment. The rent is an outrageous price for the gates to be broken ALL the time. Vehicles were broken into multiple times in the 3 months I was there. This is NOT SAFE for YOUR FAMILY. Find somewhere else.

This apartment complex had a lot more downs than ups. I am military and chose this area being so close to post. Lesson learned. First off you don't get what you pay for. Rent is pretty pricey even for a one bedroom. The ceiling on the first floor is unbearable. It is so loud it seems like the ceiling is going to collapse. The walls are paper thin so you can hear everything.. The gates really don't make sense because they stay open most of the time or break. There are bug/spiders everywhere!! I had a rodent in the apartment TWICE!! They did not do anything about it. I pay extra for pesticide service, never saw any pest control service. I would not recommend this apartment. However, it is close to king soopers which was great. They also had pretty good customer service which was good.

I lived here for exactly a year. This place has so many issues. One of my biggest issue are the ants! So we were charged a pest fee monthly but yet I have NEVER seen anybody spray for pest. WHY am I being charged a pest fee when I have ants all over my apartment? Another issue is maintenance I've put in work request for problems with our bedroom door, they came to look at it back in March 2013 and said we would have to pay to get it fixed, which we agreed that we would pay, and it is Jan 2014 and the door is still broken. After March I put in a total of 4 work request asking them to come take a look at it again, I even talked to the manger but nothing has yet to be done. There is dog crap every where outside. And today I received my bill for February and It said I owe them for the whole month of feb. BUT my move out day is FEBRUARY 2nd. Nothing ever gets done here, the gate is always broken. The apartment seems nice at first but things start to fall apart and you would expect for the price you pay, you would be living in a somewhat nice apartment, but you aren't. I wouldn't advise ANYONE to rent here.

This place is horrendous. They literally try to stay out of your way until they want their money. They have absolutly no compassion by any means. Walking into the "upgraded appartment" and being conned into the purchase. Initially everything is half assed throughout the entire unit. Hoping the security behind gates would permit some sort of saftey...or naw. The gates literally push open so anyone looking for an easy B&E heres your spot xoxo
