Finding a North Dartmouth Apartment

When to search

Spring is the best time to break out the for-rent ads and look for an apartment in North Dartmouth. April, May and June are the times when the most apartments come up for rent. The earlier you start looking in this period, the less competition you're likely to face.

Staying in the know

Making a good impression on a landlord is about more than just your interview. When you're given an application to fill out, treat it as seriously as you would a job application. Be neat, thorough, and truthful in all aspects of your application. If you're not, it will reflect badly on you when the landlord is trying to make a decision.
