I am looking to rent an apartment in the Harrisburg area. I've gone to 3 different communities and everyone had a chart showing the prices fluctuating every day! I was in one of the communities 2 weeks ago and when I went back yesterday, found the same unit was up over 100.00 and could change if I went back next week! This seems something new to me, as I've rented apartments in other states for many years and the price quoted was what I paid, not something different every day. Seems like gas prices or the stock market. Any comments on this? It's very frustrating.

There is one specific company that runs about 3 or 4 apartment complexes in the Harrisburg area that I know does this. Apartments where I am living are now going for $200+ more right now, then when I was looking for an apartment. Perhaps, I got lucky & was looking during an off-period. I can only hope that this is my luck when my lease is close to being up & need to decide whether or not to stay or move.

Best advice: If there is a community that you particularly like, and you can wait. Watch the prices change from week to week. When you see prices drop significantly...jump on it.
