The ABSOLUTE earliest time for you to look would be MID JUNE.

Here's why:
Leases usually start the 1st of the month, regardless of when the person moved in.
Most leases have "Tenant must provide 45 days of notice if they decide to vacate"

Thus, by Mid-late June, most of the August inventory has revealed itself.

You must know, most of the country has about a 10% vacancy. Manhattan has LESS THAN 1% VACANCY. SUMMER APARTMENT RENTALS IS THE ONLY TIME YOU WILL PROBABLY EVER DEAL WITH SALESPEOPLE (BROKERS) WHO ARENT KIDDING WHEN THEY SAY YOU CAN'T WAIT OVERNIGHT TO THINK ABOUT IT.

The apartments for August will thenl rent in the following order:
Best apartments that are nice (People who grab quick)--------> Worst Apartments that meet people's minimum space requirements (People who "don't prepare", "don't get with a good, reputable broker", "Don't realize what position they are in to negotiate", "people who think they will find a great no fee deal in Manhattan", until it is too late.)

I've been playing this rental game for a while now, I'll be happy to help you win! you can reach me at 803-309-3470 to discuss further

Usually, it is being abided by the law that landlords need to provide a specific amount of notice (usually 24 hours) before entering a rental unit. Landlords can usually enter on shorter notice if it is impracticable to provide the required amount of notice. Just check your lease agreement to clarify what rights the landlord had to start showing your apartment before your move-out date. ... more

Nothing - without the signed form in your hands. Make sure your customers (they are not your clients) sign a fee agreement form that lists all the properties you will be showing them and give it to you BEFORE you take them out. That way you won't have to worry about this so much in the future. ... more

Did you sign your Buyers to an Exclusive Buyer Agency Agreement? If you are not doing this, all your efforts are for nothing. You should sit down with your Buyers and have a conversation on how you are paid and request their loyalty. This should be done on rental buyers as well.

Most people in general have a hard time understanding the value of time, unless they are sitting in front of an attorney, who charges by the hour. There are some excellent dialogues available to get your point across to your clients in a positive manner. We have all experienced this issue, the goal is to prevent this from happening in the first place.

Explain to your rental client, how much time and effort you spent on their search. Perhaps, they will feel a sense of loyalty when they go to purchase a home next year when their lease runs out. Never burn bridges...

Best of luck!
