Q. Can you help me prelease an apartment to be ready when I move there?

A.  Yes.  We do that all the time for our customers. We advise you on the apartments , Austin neighborhoods, est. commute times, school districts , rents and move in specials. We can show you photos, floor plans, and many times 360 degree views of the apartments. This way you will feel comfortable with your apartment choice and secure in your move without a costly apartment hunting trip.

A. What lease terms do the apartments offer?

A. 6 or 7 month minimum but 12 or 13 month leases are the standard. Usually there are cheaper prices for a longer leases and/or a month free on a 12 or 13 month lease but not on a shorter term.

A. What if I need a less than 6 month lease?

Some apartment communities offer a three or four month lease, but it will cost you $100-250/month extra per month. 

Depending on your situation,  it is sometimes better to find a cheaper six month lease since the premium on a 3 month lease causes you to pay the equivilent of 4 1/2 to 5 months rent. If you must   have a three or four month lease, you will be limited but we can find you the ones with the smallest upcharges.

If you need a month to month or two- three month lease, corporate apartments are fully furnished and include utilities, telephone, etc. They are also expensive: one bedrooms are $1700-2200, two bedrooms $2100-2600, and three bedrooms are $2400-3500/month.


Q. What about old warehouses or factories that were converted into lofts ? 

A. What few old brick warehouses that were downtown were bulldozed in the 80's, or are being rented to restaurants or nightclubs for very high commercial prices.  There are no old factories that have been converted into apartments in Austin either unfortunately.  The downtown lofts are new construction, not old warehouses. (and most are being sold as condos for over $340 per sq ft- for Example, a 700 sq ft one bedroom is going for about $230,000+)  Austin is nothing like the west coast cities mentioned above, so if that is where you are moving from, be prepared. We can only rent what exists in Austin, but if we can't find it nobody can!

Q. Why do I need help in finding an apartment?

AApartment searching can be time consuming and frustrating. With hundreds of choices, it can be mind boggling. We have a computerized database of virtually all the apartments in the metro area (like an MLS). We can cut  your apartment search down to 2 hours from 2 weekends.         
Most Austin apartment locators work with the same properties, so there is no need  to contact several thinking we have different properties listed. We suggest you pick one that you feel comfortable with (hopefully us). Then discuss your needs with your agent to pinpoint the ideal apartment. (Most online, automated websites have  a VERY limited number of apartments to select from -  ones that will work with a non-local agent, and pay them without them escorting the tenant.)
