So,

We are moving out soon. Rent is just getting way to darn high for our taste and we can get a place the same size for 100 to 200 a month less.

So, we told them we are leaving and I get a call the other day. Person says we are with the apartment complex and we see you are leaving. You spouse signed the intent to leave but you didn't. You both must sign. I am like, uhhhh ok, no problem will be by later. Then the person says, by the way have you found a apartment yet? I said nope, not yet. Then the person says, what if i could keep your rent just as it is now would you be willing to stay (they wanted to jack it up by 75 bucks). I said nah, im looking to lower my bills all around, but I will discuss it with the significant other just to make sure we are on the same page.

Anyone else noticing land lords willing to haggle now down here? I noticed we have a abnormal amount of vacancies in this complex. I have been calling around to find out prices round town and EVERYONE has ridiculous specials now too.

Screwed up economy aint all bad I guess.

That's good news for you. If they're willing to negociate to keep you and the area is still in good shape, that's a plus. You dont have to worry about moving out, so that saves you time, money and energy.

yeah, for sure. We are thinking to go month to month IF they offer us the same monthly we are at now. Me and the wife just did a ton of interviews in another state. Hopefully one of those pan out and we can split soon. Then phase one of operation "Snake Plissken" will be complete.

i'm not surprised. I live in Miami and there are so many empty buildings. I'm glad you are getting a better deal.

Care to share where you are going? I'm in the process of doing the same. You can always DM me if anything. I hope that works out for you and your wife. At this point, month to month is the way to go. Great Luck on that.

We aren't doing all of that (at our communities) but then again, some management companies may be. A lot of people seem to be putting in their notice to get a cheaper apartment or buy a home for around the same price as rent...
