June through August have the highest rents.


Agreed. Look to sign a lease in September after all the interns/summer people have left.

Thanksgiving to Christmas is a good time to find the best deal. Very hard to find tenants then.


Got a great deal in a Chinatown building at the beginning of December last year

Was on a January lease and the same apartment was consistently listed at 200$ a month higher in the summer


Ok cool :)

New apt in Arlington offered 2 months free rent


Yes. Rented my unit in early February and the same unit is now going for $500-600/month higher.

Just curious what neighborhood/size of apt?


You find the best deals in the winter and on brand new buildings that still need to fill up.

Go give them a look.
