We typically offer only annual (12 month) or longer leases. This is especially true for leases beginning in late July or early August. It will be very rare for us to still have availability by that time. We typically only have availability in (late/early) Dec/Jan, May/Jun, and Jul/Aug.
In the rare occasion that we have a unit that is still available after August 1st, we will offer a shorter term lease on it. Preferring at lease a May ending, but going off of the waitlist at that point. So if you’re looking to lease for just the fall, or the fall and spring, you can check our availability then and contact us if there is an opening.
The other exceptions would be for the occasional December/January or May/June ending leases which is usually from a tenant that lived there long-term and was extended as a special case. Also in the case where someone were evicted for any reason. This type of unit availability and lease is rare and would be decided on a case-by-case basis.
We do offer longer than a one year lease for those who would like to lock their rental rate in at the current pricing. Our rents have never gone down from one year to the next, so it could be a good investment.
