Apartment Hunting in the Spring

It’s spring time!

The snow is beginning to melt, the sun is shining, and people just seem to be in an overall better mood.

So, how does this relate to apartments?

Spring is a great time to consider moving, primarily because of the weather. In spring you aren’t basing the day you move on weather conditions, if it’s too hot or too cold.

With that in mind, other people have the same idea.

This means competition. There will be multiple prospective residents looking at the same apartments as you. If a place meets all your needs on your apartment wish list, go for it.

Usually, there will be a good selection of apartments to choose from due to not many people wanting to move during winter. That means people might be moving out, giving you the opportunity to move in.

This gives you an advantage to see a variety of floor plans. Choose a floor plan that matches your preferred lifestyle. Whether you're looking for a one, two, or three-bedroom apartment. If you want the apartment to offer unique property amenities. Or, if you want to live in a certain location, like Forest Lake or Blaine.

Another reason to consider moving in the spring is moving companies. Winter is a slow period for moving companies and summer is their busiest. Spring sits perfectly in the middle of the two extremes allowing moving companies more flexibility in their schedule to help you move.

Either way you look at it, spring is a win-win!

Summer

The most popular time to move is summer, but why?

In summer you’re not only battling the heat, but there is more competition and higher prices.

Apartments that surround campuses begin to fill up around August and September when school is back in session – making apartment hunting a challenge.

Fall

Following the summer wave of people moving can mean a low number of vacancies come fall.

Winter

You could be facing slim pickings as people settle in for winter to arrive.

Moving furniture and boxes during the cold, rainy, and icy weather can be a challenge.

Spring gives you the opportunity to browse a variety of apartments, to look at the landscape of the apartment buildings, and envision your life in the community - with ease.
