City Guide
Moving to Dranesville

Dranesville is a great place to move. It's a commuter town, so there are tons of housing options, from 1 bedroom apartments for rent to 3 bedroom apartments. If you're starting a search for apartments in Dranesville, you're going to want to start by gathering all your personal information. Gathering necessary documents will allow you to put in an application on an apartment to rent, should you find one that speaks to you! Some of the parts of your application will include pay stubs, bank statements, tax returns, proof of income, proof of employment, a credit report, letters of reference from former landlords, letters of reference from personal contacts, and copies of your IDs. Another important way to secure an apartment to rent is by putting down a deposit. Usually a deposit includes the first month's rent and a security deposit that's equal to the amount of the first month's rent. You might also be asked to put down the last month's rent, too, so you might want to pinch pennies and save up before you start the hunt.
