Most leases in Minneapolis have a 2 month + 1 day notice. If you are looking for a March 1st move in you should be good. It may be a bit early for April, but it doesn't hurt to ask as we post our available apartments as soon as we know about them.

There starts to be a lot of movement at that time of year. I would get a start on it now.

Please visit our website at for a complete list of available homes. Inventory will begin to increase as we approach February and March, but is currently quite low.

The leasing market in Mpls is generally 60 days ahead of itself, meaning all listings for a 3/1 move in are being listed now and listings for 4/1 will hit the market around 2/1 - 2/10. The sweet spot for finding a 3/1 rental will go until about 1/15 at which point options will begin to taper off. My broker, Downtown Resource Group specializes in the condo/loft market in Minneapolis (downtown, uptown and NE mostly) and we work with all the new apartments which are somewhat comparable as well. If this type of property and area is of interest, let me know know, I'd love to be of service. You can learn more about us here:

Depending on where you are looking in Minneapolis, I would get a head start. The rental supply is far lower than the demand and it might take a while to find the right home.

There is also an MLS system for rentals in the metro. Let me know if you are looking to relocate :)

Or perhaps we could discuss the purchase process when ever you have time.

Thank you,
