Stamford Apartments Moving Tips


The weather is not the only thing that’s warming up as springtime settles in. This time of year, the housing market starts to get busier each month as folks try to time their moves with spring break and the end of the school year. Here at Stamford Apartments, we often get calls asking about availability for anywhere from immediate occupancy to those who don’t plan to move for several months, as well as the annual influx of corporate summer interns looking for short-term leases. The rule of thumb for rentals is to start looking online approximately three months before you need to move. Narrow down the neighborhoods of interest to you as well as the available amenities each apartment community offers and start making a short list of your must-haves. These might include being within walking distance to the train station or having a washer and dryer in the apartment or finding an apartment close to downtown Stamford.

Once you’ve got a list of the desired apartments you’d like to explore, start making appointments to see them about six weeks before you plan to move. See as many locations on your list as you can, and don’t forget to ask for floor plans, take notes and be prepared to take measurements. (You don’t want to find out on moving day that your overstuffed sofa won’t fit in the door). Also, be sure to ask what amenities are included in the rent and if they charge a separate amenity fee.

For instance, here at the Stamford Apartment communities of The Townhouse Apartments, Hoyt-Bedford and Morgan-Manor we have no move-in or move-out fees, no application fees and no monthly amenity fee. Not only that, but your heat, water, cooking gas, trash fees and access to each of our onsite fitness centers are all included in the monthly rent. Additionally, both Hoyt-Bedford and Morgan Manor offer free parking.

When you’ve done your homework, you’ll see that we stack up pretty good against the competition. But don’t take my word for it; come on in and see for yourself!
