Moving can be difficult.
Believe me, I know.
We have moved 7 times.
Add in all the precautions you must take for COVID and things definitely get a little stressful. I’m sure we can all agree that this past year has been full of many unexpected surprises.
And for some, planning a big move during a pandemic was added to their “to do” list. And not only were they needing to move, they needed to move out of state, during a time when doing things in person were limited if not completely restricted which made house hunting so much more difficult than usual.
If you are like some, needing to relocate for work or needing to move for personal reasons, you are already probably searching around everyone online for rentals and information.
After so many moves, I feel like a mini-pro at searching for rentals haha. While I have always had my favorite ways of searching, I recently discovered Zumper so when a friend came to me asking for help looking for an apartment in the Houston, TX area, I knew Zumper was where I wanted to search.
Zumper is a widely used apartment search resource for many areas, including Houston. It is used by millions of renters to find apartments, houses, condos and even rooms to rent. With so much uncertainty right now, it’s extremely important to do research and know information about the area you are searching so you have a good idea what to prepare for. My friend had no idea that the average rent for a 1-bedroom apartment in Houston, TX is currently $1,094 which is actually a 2% decrease compared to the previous year.
One of the many benefits of using Zumper is helpful little tidbits of information like this. Information that helps you know the area, helps you know if it’s an area you need or can manage financially, helps you prepare more for your move and much more.
I loved the ease of using Zumper, I could easily filter the search for apartments in Houston, TX to suit my friend’s needs and find exactly what type of rental she was needing. The listings had great pictures which is wonderful since it’s an out of state move and the map really helped her get a better sense of location and area. Plus it helped showed rent averages, different areas of interest, etc for those who are completely new to the area.
Zumper is used by millions of renters to find houses, rooms, condos, or apartments for rent and I definitely recommend checking out the website next time you are needing to find your next rental!
