WIFI

Tenants – Our new WIFI is now up and running.  Please let us know if you have any issues.  This is a community WIFI network.  We can not guarantee a signal over the entire property.  Thanks!!

We are filling up!!

So far we have filled or pre-leased over 20 of our expected spring and summer move outs!!  Give us a call or check out our website at 812rentals.com for more info!  Don’t wait too long they are going quick!

The Summer RUSH!!!

The summer rush has arrived!  For all you that are wanting to get an apartment with us, please know that we are getting so many calls right now we are having  a hard time returning all your messages.

If you are serious about getting an apartment with us, please consider filling out an application.  People who fill out an application (812rentals.com) go to the front of my call list as we know you are serious about renting.  Once you fill out an application we will contact you with what your deposit would be and you can then decide if you would like to place a hold.  Currently we have units open May thru August.

We work hard to reach out to everyone, but when you are getting a huge volume of calls, it makes it tough.

Just in the last week we have finally started to get notices from those current tenants that will be moving, so we will start taking applications on those units right away.  We project to have around 10 that will be opening in the May- June timeframe.

Landing an apartment in Evansville….

I am starting to have more and more calls recently from people needing apartments this summer.  Below is an article I wrote several years ago that many people found helpful.

NEED AN  EVANSVILLE APARTMENT?

How to find an apartment in Evansville

I have so many nice people coming into my office looking for apartments this time of year. Unfortunately, this time of year is good for Landlords, but tough for prospective Tenants. There seems to be a surplus of Tenants from May to September. Then it is just the opposite from October to April. For those of you wanting to find that perfect West Side apartment here are a few tips.

Plan early. Most Landlords have an idea of what availability they will have 30 – 45 day in advance. If you are wanting to move from May to September, find the perfect apartment complex, fill out an application and get approved. Most landlords will then put you on a waiting list and call you as soon as they have something. I would recommend doing that at least 2-4 months in advance to insure you get into the desired location.

Pre-Lease- Most places will let you pre-lease, to guarantee availability. If you don’t do this, it will greatly reduce you chances of finding a nice place

Talk to current tenants, drive through the parking lot late at night. See if it has enough lighting in the parking areas.

Check out the neighborhood at www.familywatchdog.com or the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s web site.

Check the apartment complex out online at www.apartmentratings.com. Keep in mind that these reviews are sometime over critical, however, it is still a good idea to check it out.

It seems that one of the more popular ways to advertise is Craigslist.  It is free to advertise.  For the folks with nice places that are affordable, they don’t need to spend big bucks on fancy advertisements.  Not many people use the newspaper any more.

Hopefully these few tips will help make your search a little bit easier.

West Colonial New Lawn Project

After a tough summer for grass growing, we are super excited to finally have some grass at West Colonial!!  We removed some very old trees that were in poor health and planted a new yard.  As soon as we planted it – we didn’t get any rain for almost 3 months.  Needless to say we finally got some rain and now have a beautiful yard!!

WOW

As I write this I see that the last update on this blog was 10-1-15. While we have been busy – we have not had a unit open up this entire year that was not pre-leased!! Thank you to a great group of staff and tenants for making this a year to be proud of!!

What a busy SUMMER!!

Thanks to all our Tenants for their patience this summer!  It was a super busy time where we had many projects and improvements going all the time.  For the first time ever, we did not have any units open up without being held in advance!  We take that as a compliment : )

Our availability has slowed down considerably.  Keep an eye on our web site under available units to see what is coming open in the future.
