Essential Steps To Finding An Apartment

By | apartment locators, Apartments, Austin, Dogs, Gym, new apartments

It’s that time again! Your lease is ending soon and you’re ready for a fresh new pad! But you literally have no clue what to do or where to even start– and that’s okay! We’ve made a quick list of essential steps to take to ensure you’re finding your next apartment the right way! Know What’s Goin’ On! Knowing when your lease is up is a must! Don’t let it creep up on you and send you into a “three weeks to find a place” frenzy! The best time to start looking is within the 60 day window before you’ve got to move out of your current spot. This is because pricing and availability change almost daily, and we want to ensure you receive the most accurate leasing information available before committing to anything. Also remember that most apartment management companies require a 30 to 60 day notice to vacate; DO. NOT. FORGET. Finally, it’s crucial to know whether you’re planning on having a roommate or if you’re flyin’ solo because this drastically effects your search. If you do have a roomie, make sure you’re both on the same page as far as move date and budget are concerned–and probably preferred apartment temperature, but we’ll save fighting over the thermostat for another blog. Hit Us Up! It’s time to link up with your Smart City agent. Tell us your wants, needs, the areas you’re interested, and anything else you prefer in a living situation! The more you tell us, the…
