It’s Moving Season!

Posted: April 22, 2015 by Yana in cambridge

Spring has sprung and summer is on its way. Now let me guess, the end of your lease is coming up, isn’t it? So you begin doing a little apartment hunting. You view a few places, fall in love with one, call the leasing office the next day, anxious to submit all of your paperwork and bam! You’re hit with the news that it has already been rented. Sound familiar? You are not alone.

Why is this?

Between the months of May and September, the number of people moving increases significantly. If you think about it, this is just around the time that college students are getting out of or beginning school. The same goes for families with kids. Also, these months provide the most accommodating weather conditions for movers making the voyage from another state.

Now, do you want the good or bad news first? The good news is the higher turnover rate at this time means you may have a greater selection of  units to choose from. The bad news is that there are way more people looking to move at the same time as you. Meaning that more people are competing for that apartment that you know is perfect for you. This means that you will have to act quickly in finding a place, making a decision, and submitting your deposit and paper work or risk losing the apartment to other interested renters.

It’s stressful, I know. But here are a few tips to help you succeed this busy rental season.

Do your research
Get all of your questions answered before looking at a unit. Does it come with your non-negotiable amenities? Will it be available during a time frame that suits you well? Do they accept pets? Know how well a place suits your needs before taking the time to look at it.

Have a clear idea of your current situation
Do you know exactly when your lease ends? Would you be able to move out a few days sooner or later? If so- what will it cost to do so? Knowing the answer to these questions will help you make a decision in a timely manner.

Have your paperwork and deposit ready before looking at apartments
This way, when you find the absolute perfect space you won’t have to waste time scrambling to gather all of your paperwork together. Having everything together and immediately available will allow you to secure that apartment right there and then.

Knowledge is power
Just knowing that this is the busy season puts you at an advantage. Now put these useful tips. Get out there and get that apartment you love!

San Diegans love their pets, this is undeniable. Being a native, you may not realize this. However, coming from another state, this is something I quickly caught on to upon moving here. Around here, people bring their pets everywhere, and I mean everywhere. To the grocery store, to the shopping mall… I saw a lady at Target just the other day walking around the store with her dog in what appeared to be a doggy stroller. Is this a real thing? I’ve even seen people sitting at the bar with their dogs for happy hour. Normal? In my opinion… not exactly. Awesome? In my opinion… YES!

So, it only makes sense to accommodate this great love San Diegans have for pets right? Right! So yes, this is the part where I tell you about our pet policy because it is indeed awesome. Just about every single property managed by Cambridge is pet friendly. We don’t think anyone should have to break a sweat over having to pay $50-$100+ on top of their rent to have Sparky live with them. At Cambridge we have a one-time pet deposit. $250 for dogs, $200 for cats. That’s all!

Nice and affordable right? Just the way we like it! Something else that is awesome and affordable?  This weekend’s promotion at the San Diego Humane Society. For just $15 you can take home the dog or cat of your dreams! So if you’ve been wanting to get a furry child to push around in a doggy stroller or perhaps accompany you to happy hour (great conversation starter if you’re new in town – just saying) consider this the sign you have been waiting for!

If you do adopt the pet of your dreams this weekend, let us know about it will ya? We love hearing about this kind of stuff. From everyone at Cambridge, we wish you a happy and safe weekend!

I mean really, how can you say no? There’s so much of this one to love!

Say hello to Buddy! He is a 6-year-old Domestic Short Hair. Buddy is a big boy with a big heart. He would love to be a part of a sweet family again, especially if they are able to give him the petting and attention he craves. He is really a nice kitty and will blossom into a loving companion once he feels safe and secure in a new home. Buddy is is a gentle boy looking for a wonderful new home.

After his previous owners were no longer able to care for him, his caretakers discovered that Buddy is severely obese, weighing in at 35 lbs. Since entering our care, our vet staff have been working with him to slowly help him lose weight, and he will need a patient new family who will be willing to continue to watch his weight and help him to get back to the healthy boy he once was!

His adoption fee includes his neuter, current vaccinations, permanent microchip identification, 30 days of complimentary medical insurance from Trupanion Insurance, and a certificate for a free veterinary exam!

Buddy is available for adoption at the San Diego Humane Society’s San Diego Campus at 5500 Gaines Street. To learn more about making him part of your family, please call (619) 299-7012.
