FAQs

I have a pet, will I be able to find an apartment that is pet friendly?

Yes. While the pool of options does decrease with the inclusion of a pet, it is not impossible to find a landlord who is pet-friendly. You should be prepared to pay a pet deposit and/or a small additional monthly cost added to your rent.

What is typically required of me by a potential landlord?

You should be prepared to provide a potential landlord with one or two rental references they can contact. Ideally, these are previous landlords that can speak to your promptness of paying the rent and the upkeep of the apartment while you lived there. Feel free to talk to the potential landlord about any special situations that might prohibit you from doing this. Some landlords also require a credit and background check.

When should I start my rental search?

Typically, landlords require 30 or 60 days’ notice prior to vacating the property. Because of this, we typically recommend starting your search no earlier than 45 days prior to your desired occupancy. Because of the tight rental market, landlords are typically looking for immediate residency in their units and will not hold units for people who are looking to move in outside of a 60 day window.

Where should I start my rental search?

Typically, local landlords are looking for long term tenants to sign a one year lease. The following links are for options that generally fit within that typical one year lease requirement. We recommend using these resources for your rental search as they would have the widest variety of options:
