Cartoon_man_in_suit_on_stack_of_books_searching_for_apartment_.jpgApartment searching can be a difficult process and searching for a new apartment out of town can be downright stressful. The newspaper and Craigslist can only give you so much information which can lead to uninformed decisions, regrets, and moving to iffy apartments.

Thankfully, here at Hignell Rentals, we make apartment searching easier. Keep on reading if you're in a long distance apartment hunt and moving to Chico, California.

Learn About All Chico Has to Offer

Chico has a special sense of community. There are great restaurants, gallery shows, farmer's markets, downtown events, and so much more. If you're looking for a place to live that has an eclectic and quaint downtown, then Chico is your place. It seems as if our downtown is always putting together an event of some kind [except during this COVID-19 season] to get the community together for either a good cause or to prompt local businesses.

Here on Hignell Rentals, we also provide a page dedicated to giving you a list of a few of our favorite local events, fun indoor and outdoor activities, along with tasty places to eat. 

Apartment Videos for Long Distance Tours

Once you've had a look at what Chico has to offer you, it's time to take a look at where you're going to live. Our apartment videos* will help you make that decision!

Transparency with Price

It's common to have to wait and call an apartment complex to find out the prices of different units. We give you the monthly rent prices on our website, along with the deposit amount for each of our complexes and each of our units so you can see right then and there if it will fit in your budget.

Apartment Vacancy Lists

Once you know which complex you'd like to apply at, 

Once you've had time to look through the different complexes, and before you begin the application process, make sure there are vacancies within that complex. You can find out if there are any vacancies by scrolling towards the bottom of the page, past Floor Plans, until you see the header Vacancies.

Checking for Vacancies

If you want to double check that the type of apartment you want is available for rent then you can call the apartment complex office during office hours (located in the Contact Us section below Vacancies) and talk to their staff about unit vacancies.
