BOSTON CONDO RENTAL PROCESS

Beacon Hill 02114 is quickly becoming one of the most highly sought after zip codes to call home in the US. For many that are deciding on how to make that move possible, this blog post is for you.

When looking to rent Beacon Hill condos to rent or in a  Beacon Hill apartment complex, there are a few ways to go about it. The most common ways to rent would be to rent from an apartment complex, or rent directly from a condo owner. Both options provide pros and cons.

RENTING DIRECTLY FROM A CONDO COMPLEX

Renting an apartment in a high rise condo complex can be the easiest route. Apartment complexes can be found throughout all of Downtown Boston and generally require a smaller upfront security deposit. Many apartments for rent in high rise Boston building also offer residents referral bonuses for bringing in new tenants. If anything breaks within the apartment, they generally have an on-site maintenance manager for quick response times, or at least a 24/7 phone number to call. The downside to these rentals is that there is no price negotiation. The lease terms and rental price are usually pre determined and there are no negotiations available. Because of the lower price points, apartment complexes usually attract younger tenants, which can often lead to the community seeming more like a dorm instead of a home. In a high rise Boston building, there are some apartment complexes that definitely dominate the scene.

RENTING DIRECTLY FROM A BOSTON CONDO OWNER

The other option for renters is to rent directly from a Boston condo owner. Many Boston condos owners buy and decide to rent them out  This website has thousands of such units throughout the Boston area.

BOSTON RENTAL APPLICATION

After the initial walk through is completed and you have decided to call the place your home, you must fill out a standard application and provide credit and income documents to the condo owner. They then decide on you as a tenant. The benefit for you as a renter is that you can negotiate the terms directly with the condo owner, including lease length, pets, and rental price. Downtown Boston condo buildings are usually smaller and much nicer than apartment rentals. Generally, a security deposit equal to one full month’s rent is required before move in. Downtown Boston condo rentals can be found in every neighborhood of Downtown Boston

CONCLUSION

Either way that you decide to go, it’s always best to have someone that knows the local area and available rentals working on your side. Rental Agents (again, like us at Ford Realty) can send you current listings in the area that you’d like to live, and schedule showings with the condo owners, sometimes even taking you themselves. There is no cost for you as the renter, the rental agents are paid by the condo owners and apartment complexes for bringing them tenants.
