When shopping for an apartment locator service, you do not need to call multiple agents/locators.
All apartment locators, while they may not be equal in service, experience or property knowledge, have access to the same apartment communities and information. Contacting more than 1 apartment locator can be confusing and overwhelming. If you have contacted other apartment locators and provided the same apartment search criteria, "apples to apples", the outcome will be the same. On occasion apartment owners and leasing or management teams will offer deals or specials through our service, exclusively, but most offer it equally to all agents. I attempt to pre-qualify my customers prior to referring you to apartments in an effort to avoid wasting your time and money. During our initial consultation, I'll ask if you have any credit, rental or background issues that would prevent a standard approval. Apartment and rental communities have credit and rental criteria requirements. The more I know - the better I'm able to assist you. There are some second chance apartments, depending on your issue.
Important Facts/Tips To Narrow Your Apartment Search
Price - It may seem like a no-brainer, but remember to compare the total rental price over the course of the lease term. For example, an apartment community may have a higher monthly rent but is offering a free rent special of 1 to 2 months free, significantly lowering the total price over a 12 to 15 month lease term!
Lease Terms - Keep in mind that specials offered rarely apply to anything less than a year lease term and sometimes longer. While 6 month leases are still offered at most apartment communities, that will almost always increase the monthly rental price, sometimes significantly. Shorter term leases such as 3 months are only offered at some apartment properties. A short term lease of 3 months will be at "market rate", some have an additional upcharge, as much as $300 per month in addition to the higher market rent. Also factor in that most apartments use a dynamic pricing software for prices - I can help you with finding the best properties regardless of whether it's a long or short term lease you're looking for. I can also help you with a corporate apartment - a corporate apartment is either a long or short term rental that includes rent, furniture, utility allowances, cable, internet, maid service. They are significantly higher in price but is less than a hotel and much more convenient.
Water, sewer, trash,gas, and pest control are additional fees paid separately by the renter. There are only a handful of properties that don't charge these fees additionally - the vast majority do.
There are some all bills paid or utilities included apartments - they are older built communities that typically have been upgraded. They don't have washer/dryer connections in the apartment but there are laundry facilities on site. Contact me for more information for these apartment communities in Clear Lake, Houston or other areas.
Laundry facilities - You know you’ll be spending time doing laundry, so you might favor the complex that provides you with a washer and dryer in the apartment, over those which provide shared laundry facilities on site. If one apartment comes with a connection and another comes with a washer and dryer already installed, you might factor in the cost of renting or buying new units before you make your decision. Washer/dryer rental can run $40 to $50 monthly.
Location, Location, Location - One apartment may be closer to work, ensuring a shorter commute. Another may be within walking distance of a grocery store, and shopping. Still another may be close to school, public transportation, a dog park or even a favorite pub or restaurant to meet up with your friends and colleagues. It's always a good idea to put in the apartment’s address into Google Maps to measure the time to travel to important daily destinations. My free apartment list comes with Maps, directions, amenities and all the detailed information you'll need to be able to decide which property is the right one for you.
