My tips on finding a Beacon Hill apartment easier

Finding a new Beacon Hill apartment can be a daunting task, with recent rising rents having made it especially hard this year. But there are things you can do to make the process easier.

Whether it’s your first or 10th time renting a Beacon Hill apartment, here are a few things to think about when looking for a new place to call home:

What are your needs versus wants in an apartment?

Before anything else, you need to decide what your priorities are and what you can afford.

The Ford Realty Beacon Hill website can help curate your search.

Another option is to use a broker to help with your search. Some of our exclusive listings have no-fee brokers.

Do you understand the rental market?

As with any major life decision, it’s always good to do your research. Rents can vary greatly from month to month and it’s best to understand the market to know what you can expect at different price ranges

If you’re not in a rush, you might want to wait until December when the market is slow.

Renters might also have more leverage to negotiate then. But with rental demand high, this year might not see as steep a winter slowdown as before the pandemic.

A downside of moving during the winter months might include having fewer options and if you live in places where it snows, potentially bad weather for your move.

Do you understand time is of the essence?

It’s important to learn as much as you can and make an informed decision. But in a competitive market, you can’t always take as much time as you’d like to consider options. The key is to do as much research as possible ahead of time so you’re ready to apply when you see something you like

Yes, there was supposed to be a clown at your birthday party. No, he didn’t show up. That’s a bummer.

The question is: how long should you mourn the loss of the clown? How much more of your life are you ready to sacrifice?

The same question confronts many people today. Your vacation trip has been canceled that you looked forward to because your kid was sick.

That’s what happened to someone I know.  But why be sad?

If it doesn’t help, why float in it?

Beacon Hill Apartment Renter

The reason I bring this up, I had a phone call today from a young lady who inquired about a Beacon Hill apartment for rent. I told her I needed to call the listing broker, which I did, only to be informed that they had an application on the unit. I called my (hopefully) client back and told her what the agent told me. She was obviously upset, I told her we have 100’s of Beacon Hill apartments for rent, and more are coming on each day. Not to be sad.

About an hour after the call, I received an email from a Beacon Hill landlord who had a similar apartment, best of all the landlord was going to pay the broker fee.

That happened.
