Moving out to a suburb for SOs job. Not very many apartments within walking distance to the Metra, so options feel a bit limited. Is two weeks of lease overlap starting 7/15 a lot? Or should I wait?

Lease overlap is nice so you don’t have to slam the entire move in one day.

Also costs $ though lol. I personally think a week is optimal

I’m in the exact situation as you! Which suburb? Haha

I am currently moving and have a two week lease overlap. It feels good to not be rushed when moving especially since we’re not taking any days off for it

Confused by the question - what does having limited apt options have to do with your lease overlap? Normally you do a lease overlap bc that is the only choice you have, so if you can wait to not have an overlap, then don’t have one. If that is the only apt available then it doesn’t sound like you have a choice...

I always try and get the leases to overlap. It’s a lot less stressful.

But if you have your stuff together, or just don’t have a lot to move, or just want to save $$ you don’t need one.
