CHARM & STYLE IN WEST HOLLYWOODWhen the California sun rises over West Hollywood, it shines just a little bit brighter on The Fitz. Maybe it’s the majestic display of crystals strewn across The Fitz’s façade. Or maybe it’s simply a magical allure that must be experienced to be believed. Though admittedly, it probably has a lot to do with the crystals.Be it through majesty or magic, every sun-drenched corner of The Fitz beckons exploration. And as you search the grounds for new discoveries, you find that curiosity is quickly rewarded. The eclectic design both inside and out presents a vibrancy reminiscent of West Hollywood itself, yet The Fitz reserves a bespoke elegance all its own. So indulge in cultivated leisure, revel in refined style, experience uncommon adventure, and do it all from the comfort of home.

What to keep in mind when looking for apartments with move-in specials in Santa Monica, CA

Move-in specials offer an enticing incentive to Santa Monica apartment renters looking to save. However, it’s important to ask about any stipulations to the move-in specials. A free month’s rent may only apply to specific apartment floors or basic amenities instead of the apartment you really want.

Other move-in specials might include a lowered or no security deposit option. Keep in mind the lack of security deposit means you are responsible for damage when moving out.

No application fees are also popular move-in specials, which will immediately put more money back in your pocket.

Santa Monica apartments are more likely to offer move-in specials during an off-season like winter when fewer people are moving. You may be able to negotiate your own special like free parking for a year in the paid garage.
