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.

Lounging outside after a long day of work can provide the relaxation you have been needing. If you have a patio or balcony that could use a freshen-up for the summer season, consider the following ideas.
 
* Plant a few of your favorite flowers or vegetables to add some color and fragrance to your patio.
* Be sure to make use of any hanging elements or shelving units to conserve space. Items like deck boxes can be used as both a table and storage, and can be quite handy. 
* And finally, it is time to unwind and share your apartment's outdoor space with friends and family.
