As the summer months bring increased availability, it's an excellent time for non-students to lease a new apartment in Tallahassee. With many apartments offering great deals, you can find a fantastic place to live in our state's capital. Here are the RentTally Team's best tips to help you find the best deals on Tallahassee apartments during the Summer months:

Aneesa suggests: Compare Fees

One of the best ways to save money when renting an apartment is to look closely at the various fees associated with the lease. Many apartments offer specials that waive these fees, which can include administrative fees, leasing fees, and application fees. These fees can add up quickly, sometimes totaling several hundred dollars. By choosing a property that offers waived fees as part of their move-in specials, you can significantly reduce your upfront costs, making your move more affordable.

Olivia's best tip: Compare Specials for 1 Month Free vs. Reduced Rent

Another common special is one month of free rent or reduced rent for the lease term. Understanding how these specials work can help you maximize your savings. For example, if an apartment offers one month free, you can leave this as a credit on your account, effectively reducing your rent for the remaining months of your lease. This can ease your monthly financial burden and help you manage your budget more effectively. Alternatively, some apartments might offer a reduced rent rate, lowering your monthly rent payment throughout your lease. Compare these offers to see which option provides the most significant benefit for your situation.

Jack's advice: Consider Square Footage

When comparing apartments, don't overlook the importance of square footage. The size of an apartment can greatly impact your comfort and living experience. For instance, a 700 square foot one-bedroom apartment will feel much smaller compared to these 1,240 square foot one-bedrooms at University Green. Larger apartments not only offer more living space but can also provide additional storage, room for furniture, and a more open, comfortable environment. When evaluating your options, consider how much space you need and how you plan to use it to ensure you select an apartment that meets your needs.

Finding the perfect apartment in Tallahassee involves careful consideration of fees, specials, and apartment size. By taking advantage of the increased availability during the summer months and comparing the various offers, you can secure a great deal on your next home.
