5 Simple Tips for Apartment Renters in LA

5 Simple Tips for Apartment Renters in LA

  |     |   Apartment Living Tips And Tricks, Los Angeles Rental Guides

If you're new to LA, one of the first things you'll learn is that apartment hunting is no joke. The city is booming and there are a lot of options, so it's important to make sure you're getting the most for your money. These five tips will help you find the perfect pad without breaking the bank. Happy house hunting! 

1. Look for apartments in nontraditional neighborhoods. 

One of the best ways to save money on rent is to look for apartments in less popular neighborhoods. These areas are often more affordable and offer just as much (if not more) charm than pricier parts of town. Do some research and see if any lesser-known neighborhoods fit your budget and lifestyle. 

2. Compare prices and amenities. 

When you're looking at different apartments, it's important to compare apples to apples. Make sure you're considering the price of rent as well as the cost of utilities and other amenities. If one apartment is more expensive but includes included utilities or covered parking, it may be worth paying a bit more in rent. 

3. Get creative with your space. 

If you're open to living in a smaller space or have your heart set on a particular neighborhood that's outside of your budget, get creative with your housing options. There are a number of ways to save money on rent by downsizing or choosing a less traditional living arrangement. Consider renting a co-living suite, a living arrangement that allows you to share a unit and enjoy your own private living space, while saving on rent. Concourse apartments in Westchester offers a vast range of co-living suites, all of which come fully furnished and with varying levels of price, square footage, and privacy. 

4. Look for move-in specials

 Many landlords offer move-in specials to attract new tenants. For example, Concourse apartments in Westchester CA offer some of the best move-in specials in the area. Our current specials include up to 8 weeks of free rent on a 12-month lease and $500 off your 2nd month of rent when you apply within 48 hours of your tour. Plus, if you move in within 20 days of your tour, you'll receive an additional discount on top of our other leasing specials. And, if you and a friend lease co-living suites together, you'll both receive a $500 move-in special. 

5. Consider a short-term lease. 

If you're not ready to commit to a long-term lease, consider a shorter lease term. Many apartments offer 6- or 12-month leases, which can be a great option if you're not sure how long you'll be living in the area or if your job situation is relatively unstable. At Concourse, you can rent for 31 days or longer if you choose one of our furnished Westchester apartments.
