There is no right or wrong answer to the question of “When is the best time to rent an apartment” because the answers boil down to what you value most. Potential renters can save money by scoring a move-in deal during certain times of the year and other times they will have ample choice of apartment listings because everyone is moving. If you are thinking of moving into a Redlands apartment, here are a few tips.
Best time to save: winter is generally the best time to save money on an apartment by scoring a “move-in” discount or deal. Apartment renting is slow during the winter and open units can sit unoccupied for weeks and months on end. Many apartment complexes will offer huge discounts during this time of the year.
Choice and options: if finding the right apartment is what you value most, the best time to move is during the summer. Apartments experience ample turnover rates during June to September, so if choice is what you are after, waiting until the middle of the year to find a new apartment.
