My partner and I are moving to Columbus, hoping for an Aug 1 lease start date.* We are trying to figure out whether to visit the last week of June or the first week of July to look for a place (we're moving from the South, so only can come for a few days). Anyone see any advantages to one week or the other, in terms of how the local rental market works? I've been scoping Padmapper/CL for a few months and have rarely seen Aug rentals yet; I'm hoping June will bring more listings....
Thanks for any advice! We are looking forward to joining the community in Columbus.
*yes, I know there are already a lot of threads about moving, but I never saw any that dealt with advice on WHEN to look....nonetheless, sorry if this is repetitive.
