  • When should I start looking for my next rental property?

  • Consider starting to actively search for your next rental property on Rent around four weeks before you need to move. Rental properties come on and off by the thousands every day. If you find a great property today, it may not necessarily be available when you檙e ready to move.

  • When is the best time to look for an apartment?

  • An open house or apartment tour on a Saturday could lead to a signed lease on Sunday. That why we recommend starting your search 30-60 days before your desired move-in date. The rental inventory will be up to date during your search and you檒l be ready to move in fairly soon once you find something.

  • How far in advance should I start looking for a house?

  • If you have some time or your lease does not end in the next 60 days, you can start looking a few months out to get an idea of the area you would like to be in and the type of rentals (ie apartment, condos, single families, etc). If you know the area you need to be in and what you want, about 30-45 days from needing to move should be ok.

  • When is the best time to move in with a landlord?

  • I always recommend 3 weeks before the move-in date so the landlord won’t feel pressured to hold a property and second guess their decision to choose you as a tenant based on move-in date. This is a great question and one I’m asked frequently. Usually, your best bet is to look about 30-45 days out from when you want your lease to begin.
