When should I start looking for an apartment?

The best time to start your apartment search is 2-4 weeks before you are ready to move-in. If you come earlier than that, you’ll run into one of two potential issues:

  • You won’t have access to view all of the units that will be available for your preferred lease start date. Some landlords don’t show occupied apartments.
  • You’d have to start your lease earlier than your preferred lease start date and pay for days you aren’t actually living in the apartment.
