im from NJ... and im moving to denver. After i got my acceptance to DU, i went out there to look at the campus and some apartments. Before i went, i researched like mad to find out what neighborhoods were good, what i can afford, what type of amenities i'd like, how far from campus, etc. I used alot of online search sites, such as rent.com, apartment.com, etc. i spent ALOT of time researching.... and i found a great apartment bldg.
one of the benefits of putting your deposit in early is that often times apartment bldgs run specials, and they differ from week to week. you are usually guaranteed the best deal between the time u put in the deposit and the day you sign the lease. So since im moving in late july.... im going to get the best deal between then and now. right now i went from $550 a month to $528 a month, and they say that they may offer a deal that makes it even lower.
i dont know about other cities, but in denver the apartments are competing with each other like crazy. the city use to be flooded w/ techies, but when the stock market started to crash they all lost their jobs and left.... so there is now an influx in apartments, and the rates are falling drastically.
