An easy way to save money on rent is to move in the winter rather than the summer when there’s less competition. With the months getting colder, it may be time to start looking at apartments in Reno you would like to live in.
You may also be able to extend the length of your lease, giving the landlord assurance that he or she will be receiving rent for an extra month or so. You can also sometimes negotiate other means of decreasing what you have to pay. For example, if you have a pet you can ask for additional pet rent costs to be waived or for parking fees reduced.
Once you know what you’re looking for and how much you can afford, start searching for apartments. Use Reno apartment finder sites like Apartment Genie to contact properties that seem like a good fit to set up appointments for tours.
