Moving to Summit

Are you waiting for the other shoe to drop? Well, think expensive shoes because the median rent in Summit is more than both the state and national average rental amount (AreaVibes.com). But all this really means is that you'll have to get your shoes a walkin' to really cover a lot of rental ground to find a place you love in your price range. Obviously, the competition for below-average rents in above average places is going to be tough, but the tough get going, right? Have your proof of income and a damage deposit in order if you hope to find an apartment in Summit.
