Yes, during the early summer, rentals are easier to find. "Easier" is relative in Heritage Hill, however. If you are looking for features such as central air, dishwasher, garage, laundry, etc, those go very fast. We looked on Craigslist and some other sites (as well as walking around and calling on every "For Rent" sign for 2 bedrooms for about a month before we found the perfect place. We are really picky and always try to find the best for our money, so that could have had something to do with it, but many places were rented the same day or day after they go up on Craigslist. Be aggressive and don't be afraid to call people repeatedly and leave messages expressing your interest to see the apartment that day.

When I first moved to GR in 2007, we looked at 22 apartments in one weekend and finally found the perfect one. We saw some real doozies, so don't be afraid of what you see at first as the quality has a very wide range even at the same price point.

We love it here though and it is worth hunting for apartments in this area instead of moving to a cookie cutter apartment on Alpine or in Grandville. Good luck!

Enjoying an area doesn't necessarily translate into the best place for job opportunities, or perhaps your plans to move to California have changed?
