finally, a foot in the door

Just in time for W's graduation; bring on the apartment hunt. Bay Area apartment rents fall 1st time in years. From SFGate:

"That toll, of course, is good news for tenants, who have stood by helplessly as rents and demand for choice apartments surged in recent years. Now the competition is intensifying among landlords, with some already offering things like $99 move-in specials and free credit checks to would-be tenants, Latham said.

'I think we'll see more of that competition for tenants, so (landlords) better know how to manage it and give tenants the service and value they think they're paying for,' she said."
