So you’ve leased a new apartment, now what?

Meet Smart City Connect, a free, easy way to complete the moving checklist that comes AFTER finding your new place. That means helping you with everything that comes after signing the lease, like setting up internet and utilities, connecting you with movers, and even getting the best rate on renters insurance. Kind of awesome, right?

How it works:

1. Get connected with your dedicated Relocation Consultant. Just like having a personal apartment locator, you won’t have to deal with multiple people or wonder what work they’re doing for you.

If you worked with a Smart City agent to find your new apartment, our Connect team will reach out to you shortly after you sign the lease. But, if you haven’t worked with one of our apartment locators, we won’t take it personally! You can still use our free Connect perks by utilizing the affiliate links listed below and/or connecting with a Relocation Consultant! Choose your city below to see the offerings in your area and get started.

Atlanta | Austin | Chicago | Dallas | Denver | Fort Worth | Houston | San Antonio

2. We’ll help you tackle the tasks you don’t want to do, like finding dependable moving companies or comparing pricing and promotions on internet plans.

3. Take advantage of discounts and save, because moving is expensive and we’re always looking for ways to provide the best deals to our clients.

Our specialists can run a search to find the best electricity, internet, cable, and security providers for your needs, make sure you get premier pricing, and even sign you up/process your orders! Service and providers vary by market. For example, energy is only deregulated in Dallas, Fort Worth, and Houston, so our electricity offerings are exclusive to those cities. However, setting up internet, cable, and security services is an available option in all of our operating markets.

Renters Insurance

All major apartment properties require renters insurance, while each private rental differs according to management preferences. That said, whether required or not, peace of mind comes from knowing that your at-home belongings are protected from some of the worst circumstances.
