As a follow up to my article on apartments in Arizona I found this and wanted to link to it.
When you step into the leasing office of an apartment to meet the landlord it is important to remain calm and collected as suggested by the folks at https://blog.movingcost.com/local/arizona/score-a-cheap-apartment-in-tucson-az.html.
Always let it be known that you have several different options in place already. Do your research so you will know what prices and amenities are available in your area. That way if you are given a quote that seems too high you can let the manager know that there are lower rents in the area. Often they will match the price but if not, it could lead to free gym access or other amenities at a decreased rate.
Stress the fact that your interest in renting the apartment is long term. You will usually get a better rate for signing a 2 year contract instead of renting on a month to month basis for example. Landlords will often negotiate the price with you so don’t just accept the price they quote you. Try these tips and you might end up with the apartment you want at a discounted price.
How about you? Tried any of these tips? Comment below.
