Housing in a college town can be a tricky situation, as it often makes sense to move home during the summer. At The Landmark Apartments we understand, because while living in Fort Collins is extremely fun, with plenty of things to do, living at home and saving money is hard to pass up. With traditional 12-month leases being the president in our local Fort Collins community it can be hard for you, as a student to find CSU off-campus housing while also being able to go home to your parents for the summer.
At The Landmark Apartments, we are here to tell you that there are ways that you can manage a 12-month lease while also going home for the summer. In today’s blog post we will discuss apartment subletting, and a couple services that can aid you in your endeavor to sublet your CSU off-campus apartment.
What is Subletting?
Subletting is the act of leasing or transferring the lease, to another party for the duration, or a short period of time, while leasing an apartment or home. The benefit of subletting your home is that it provides you with the ability to temporarily leave, while also avoiding the costs associated with paying for an empty apartment. While it might seem as easy as posting a flyer to sublet your CSU off-campus housing, it might require some extra work to find a trustworthy candidate to take over your Fort Collins apartment’s lease.
