Tips For Finding Apartments At Any Time

If you’ve looked for apartments in the greater Denver area before, you know that many of the available leases follow the academic year. With so many colleges in the area, it’s no wonder that many property companies opt to follow this schedule. However, for people looking to move outside of those times, it’s not uncommon to have trouble finding open units in the first place. Here are a few simple tips from your trusted Colorado moving team to help you find an apartment in the off-season.

Start Your Search Online

The internet is one of the best ways to find open and available apartments. However, instead of relying solely on Craigslist, start broadening your search. Check with individual property management companies to see if they have any units that will fit your needs. Use resources like Zillow to identify homes that are up for rent. You’ll even be able to narrow down your search by neighborhood and price point to only show homes that are right for you.

Drive Around

Believe it or not, many private landlords don’t put their properties up online. Instead, they place a sign in the front yard and wait for people to call about the property. The only way you’ll find these units is if you drive around looking for them. Pick the top three neighborhoods you want to live in and take a drive. If you see a “for rent” sign on a property that looks appealing, make a note of the address and the landlord’s phone number and call them when you get home.

Don’t Dismiss Subletting

Situations change and many students end up needing to find a tenant to sublease their apartment in the middle of the year. Unfortunately, these openings often don’t show up on general rental listings. Instead, check sites like Airbnb and Flip display sublet listings. However, many people still rely on Craigslist to find tenants to take over their lease quickly.

Head to Apartment Complexes in Person

If the internet is not giving you the results you were hoping for, try meeting with an apartment manager in person. They’re always up to date on the leases in their building, but they may not have had a chance to post an opening online. If a unit is open and it fits your needs, they’ll work to get you into the apartment as quickly as possible, saving you the further strain of hunting for an apartment. If no units are available, most property managers will happily take your information and contact you as soon as a suitable unit opens up.

Ask Around

Your coworkers and friends are a wonderful resource when it comes to finding housing outside of the main leasing season. If you’re looking for a new place, don’t hesitate to ask the people close to you. They may have a friend that just moved out of their apartment or know of a unit in their building that just opened up.

Though finding an ideal apartment can be a bit of a challenge, finding the right movers to help you relocate doesn’t have to be. At Eden’s Moving Services, our dedicated staff can handle the heavy lifting for you so you can focus on enjoying your new home. Contact us today for a free moving estimate.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
