These deals are on display online and in the leasing offices.

Incentives are often offered during the slow winter months and typically include one or two months free rent with the signing of a 12- or 13-month lease. However, one development recently decided to go the extra mile.

Glynis Whitaker, property manager at 611 Park Avenue and The Severn [both located in Mount Vernon] announced that they are offering one month’s free rent or “a four-night, five-day cruise out of Baltimore to Bermuda with a 12-month lease.”
