Tired of owners requesting first month’s rent, last month’s rent and 1 month security deposit to move in? You’re not alone. The number 1 question we get from renters now is how much properties cost to move in.
The good news is Rent 1 Sale 1 Realty offices keep track of all the apartments move in specials and rent specials. Our team of realtors are in constant contact with the rental communities for these specials.
What are Move-In Specials and Rent Specials?
Move in specials are usually offered by apartment communities. They consist of no last months’ rent up front and security deposits that are typically less than one month’s rent. Some will often give ½ a month, 1 month or even 2 month’s free rent to entice renters. These freebies may be offered up front or prorated over 12 months, thus reducing the rent to what we call a rent special.
What if I want a townhouse?
Some apartment communities are townhome communities. They’re called apartments because of their form of ownership. These also offer move in and rent specials that we track of course.
What if I want a condo or home?
Private owners tend to ask for first, last and security to move in. However, the last month’s rent is negotiable as to when it’s paid. It can be paid when it should, on the last month of the lease, or it can be split up over a number of months after moving in. Typically its split over a three or four month period.
