I am moving to a new area, and I want time to look at the housing market. I have not lived in an apartment before. , I live in phoenix area. I see the rents and deals offered, but Im wondering if I can negotiate a better deal or are these places with these fancy offices and agents set on the price and the deal they offer.

I looked at what the market was asking for what I was looking for. I found deal so I didnt have to..But thats something you could look at yourself. Plus I felt better myself that I knew I wasnt getting ripped off.

Foreverking.... Some people will deal and some will not. I own a small duplex and find people come to rent because they are tired of the big complexes. Again you will find good managers and poor managers. You should size them up as much as they are sizing you up. If you feel good with who you are dealing with go for it, otherwise shop around until you find someone. Renting is not only finding a delightfull place but also finding a good manager or landlord, both come into play when renting.LOL
