Four Signs it is Time to Find a New Apartment

The whole point of a rental is it’s meant to be temporary. Whether you stay in your apartment for six months or three years, eventually it will be time to move on to a bigger, better or just plain different place to live. At Move For Free, we’ve seen our fair share of new beginnings. Here are four signs that it may be time for your own!

1. Neighbors

Living in an apartment community means sharing pools, walls, gyms and more with neighbors. If yours are consistently inconsiderate when it comes to noise and privacy, it may be time to look elsewhere. Whether you’re only a wall away from a raucous college party or a crying newborn, losing sleep over neighbor noise just isn’t worth it. If your noise dispute can’t be handled in a civil fashion, it’s time to look elsewhere.

2. Bad Management

An apartment community’s management is responsible for making sure that everything runs smoothly. Repairs should be made on time. No plumbing work should take place without prior notice to residents. If you’re constantly waiting on management to fix broken appliances or having to shower at the gym, management is to blame. (We form business relationships with all of our apartment communities in Dallas, so you can count on fantastic management!) After all, your apartment is your home and their job. You need management that takes that as seriously as you do.

3. Movin’ On Up

Not all reasons for moving are negative. Whether you finally received that new promotion or won the lottery, something bigger and better is now in the budget. They say you should dress for the job you want – and we say you should rent for the job you want! An upgraded and organized apartment will better suit your new life. Goodbye thumbtacks and hello framed art!

4. Price

Did you love your apartment and its price only to have it raised substantially after a year? It’s not uncommon for prices to go up with demand. If your management isn’t willing to maintain the price you signed up for initially, you may want/have to start apartment hunting. Lucky you, you can find a new apartment complete with a free move by using Move For Free!

If one of these reasons has you searching for a new apartment, sign up at or call us today! Our experienced apartment locators will find you the perfect place (for free) and cover the cost of your movers. What are you waiting for?
