Create a Rental File to Stay Organized
 
You’ve found a new place to hang your hat. Hooray! Now organize all that paperwork you’ve collected in the process of renting your apartment. That way, when it comes time to renew your lease or (gasp) cash in on the renter’s insurance you purchased, information you need will be quickly on hand.
 
We recommend creating a file that houses the following documents:
1) Your lease and all accompanying documents you signed (tip: jot down important dates in the lease on a sticky note such as when rent is due and when your lease is up)
2) Renters Insurance policy
3) Move in / move out condition checklist
4) Storage rental agreement (if you have one)

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.
