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.

Now that the outside temperatures are finally warming up, it is time to make use of the outdoor space at your apartment. 

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.
* If you have not tackled the cleaning yet it is 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 have not already, it may be time to invest in an outdoor patio set. Or perhaps 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.
* 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.

THIS IS THE WORST EXPERIENCE I'VE EVER SEEN SINCE I CAME TO UNITED STATES. I'm international student and i have been here in USA for 3 years i was moving from city to city and now I'm studying at California state university San Marcos i moved to Barham villas on August 18 ,2014 because i have to move and it was the only chose anyway I moved here and they are sucks sucks is hardly the word First they charged me and took $1,093 INSTEAD OF TAKING ONLY $205 from my account they told me at the begging that it happened by mistake and the money will return into my account with in 24 hours and nothing returned into my account then they told me it takes more time the month done and i didn't receive my money back they kept telling me that for several weeks and at the end they told me just pay the rest of your monthly rent so i paid the rest of my rent which is $724 honestly they are cheaters because how come they can wihdraw much more money from my account since i wrote at the check only $205 . and i have a proof for that i have a proof for everything I'm saying second when i moved in the balcony door was broken and the kitchen Window as well was broken . Third all the plugs were not working even after i start elictricety service, there was problem in most of the plugs. Fourth there are no gates and no security cameras and it's not safe at all at night it's very dark and you can't even walk since it's dark and there are not enough lights. the management are really bad and the staff as well no one is friendly they only think of taking money from you. Fifth i always pay my rent before the beginning of each month and after 4 or 5 days they leave a notice on the apartment door it says /////THREE DAYS NOTICE TO PAY RENT OR QUITE MOVE OUT \\\\ they are not polite at alL, always there are loud voices from outside from workers and you can't get a quite and nice sleep also it is very expenseve it's not worth 1817$ at all I DON'T Recommend this community to anyone even to my enemies THIS IS THE WORST EXPERIENCE I'VE EVER SEEN SINCE I CAME TO UNITED STATES

I've lived at Barham for a bit more than a year now and I really like it. The maintenance men, and the office staff are really nice. Cindy, the office manager, as well as the rest of the staff will work with you on any reasonable issue. They've implemented new policies about parking, so hopefully that will help the situation. Like most places in California, there are more cars than people, and their parking lot simply can't handle 2-3 cars for every apartment they have. They bake cookies everyday and give them out to everyone. The grounds are always kept really clean. It's within walking distance of the university so they attract a lot of college kids, but there are a number of families that live there as well. It's a really nice place to get your life started. The atmosphere is really relaxed which reflects the large college population. There are parties but the office tries to keep them under control and I haven't noticed that it's a large problem. I haven't really encountered too many problems that the office hasn't tried to fix for me. Like I said, the atmosphere is really informal and relaxed which might not be for everyone. I moved here from Eagle's point in neighboring Escondido and THAT place is trash. I think most people who complain about Barham haven't lived anywhere that's truly ill-managed.
