If the thought of packing up and moving house in cold or snowy weather doesn't exactly appeal, you're not alone. Perhaps you'd feel a little warmer if I told you that putting up with the inconvenience of a winter move could save you cash month after month from now on. Read on to find out why.

Turns out, that same nasty winter weather that makes you want to huddle indoors also makes apartment turnover very slow. That means, empty apartments are likely to stay empty longer, and if there's one thing building owners hate, it's units sitting empty when they could be generating rent.

So, thanks to a little thing called supply and demand, winter is your best time to negotiate a great rate, one that you get to keep all year long. Worth it? We think so.
