The Best Time to Move to New York Apts.

Locating and moving into New York Apts can be an exciting, yet time consuming task with a lot of decisions thrown together during one crucial time frame. The research alone into the styles, pricing plans, and amenities being offered can become overwhelming. In order to relieve some pressure, let's take a look at when the best time to move is. Some feel that the most convenient time to move has a "once per year window" and if that window is missed you will have to wait another year to try again. This is simply not true. In fact, there are two times of the year optimal to move.

Moving to Your New York Apt in the Summer

The first option for an optimal move-in date is the summer. During the months of June through early August many apartments become available due to college semester cycles. Students who were renting New York apts during the previous academic year are now moving out and moving on. Within just a few days of this moving-out cycle, many apartment complexes begin their summer move-in specials.

Move-in specials often include free first month's rent, free deposit, and may even include perks from local businesses specifically designed for you. Other incentives may include free gym memberships and even free dining cards to help you become acclimated to your new neighborhood.

Moving to Your New York Apt during the New Year

Surprisingly, another great time for moving into New York apts is late December through late January. This time of year is good for several reasons. The first reason is the fact that not many people consider this to be an optimal move time. The busyness of the holidays and New Year celebrations generally get in the way of thoughts concerning moving.

The second reason is the fact that it is the end of graduate school semesters and many graduate students will be moving on to internships and positions that are located out of the area.

The third reason that the late December move is a great choice is because of holiday specials offered during that time. Moving trucks, supplies, and furniture companies will be offering special holiday sales due to the severe lull in business. Taking advantage of these specials can save thousands of dollars on your furniture and necessities for the move.

The last reason that the late December move should be considered as optimal for New York apts is the financial advantage. If a tax return is expected to come your way, you can use it as a "move to New York fund." The payment of the rent, furniture, and moving can be completed with tax refund money rather than dipping into your savings.

To take full advantage of any move-in special, it is always best to carefully plan ahead. By educating yourself on area specials and time frames, you will receive the optimal in move-in discounts, as well as a nice financial relief for your wallet.
