So what is the best time to look for an apartment? The best days are in the first four to five days of the month – the earlier the better, and here are the reasons why.
On the simple basis of supply and demand these first days of the month provide the best selection and largest amount of suites available. Landlords usually rent on a first come first serve basis so being there sooner than everyone else gives you the best chance of finding that perfect apartment.
Existing tenants have to provide 30 day written notice on or before the last day of the month so in the first days of the month the building managers will be aware of exactly what is coming up for availability on top of anything that is currently vacant..
