Q: I’m interested in finding out more about your rental services!
Q: Your service sounds awesome! How do I schedule an appointment?
A: Email us at [email protected] with three days that you are available. Make sure that your preferred dates are 3-4 weeks out from your desired move-in dates.
Q: Why don’t you schedule appointments further out than a month from my desired move-in date?
A: Due to DC tenant laws, leases convert to month to month at the end of the term. This means that landlords typically don’t know if a tenant is leaving until they are gone! Available properties are usually vacant, which means that landlords are looking for someone to move in quickly.
Q: What are the price ranges of rentals in DC?
A: Generally speaking studios start at $1,400+. 1 bedrooms start at $1,700+. 2 bedrooms start at $2,400+. 3+ bedrooms start at $3,700+. Parking will typically add an additional $150-250 per month to the rent.
Q: I have a cat/dog, is it going to be hard finding a place?
A: While we here at City Chic Real Estate love animals, typically landlords don’t feel the same way. Having a pet typically eliminates 50% of your options, so you might need to be flexible on price range, neighborhood or unit features.
