Search for Boston Apartments by Move-In Date

Apartment hunting in Boston is tricky even under ideal circumstances. Depending on when you need to move in to your new place, it can be more difficult still. Thanks to Boston’s incredibly competition rental market, finding an apartment to rent requires more than just checking current availability. In fact, to secure a unit that suits your needs and budget, it pays to know when to begin searching—and that should be based on when you need to move in. For your convenience, Boston City Properties allows you to search for apartments by move-in date, so you can get a leg up on the competition and more easily find an apartment that suits your most crucial requirements.

Why it Pays to Search by Move-In Date

In many rental markets, it doesn’t really matter when you plan to move in; throughout the year, apartments tend to fill and become vacant, so inventory remains fairly consistent. That’s decidedly not the case in most Boston neighborhoods. With more than 100 colleges and universities in Greater Boston, the apartment rental market is heavily influenced by when classes start and end. Therefore, most apartments in the city are on what is known as a September 1st cycle, which means that they become available for rent on September 1st. Another spike in demand occurs in January, which is when many schools have semester breaks. These and other factors cause significant fluctuations in availability throughout the year, and it helps to be aware of these ebbs and flows.

Start By Knowing Your Ideal Move-In Date

For best results, it pays to have a firm idea about when you need to move in to your new place when apartment hunting in Boston. You can then use the resources within this website to determine the best time to begin.
