There are many types of apartments for rent in a city the rents for which can range from $ 400 a month for a standard one bedroom apartment with full kitchen up to $ 1500 for a luxury suite. More often than not a security or damage deposit is required and the rental rates may or may not include utilities that have a variable cost.
Rents vary according to the amenities offered by the building. Some buildings offer amenities such as air conditioning, cable and an indoor swimming pool to all tenants. Some times an extra charge that could be anything above $ 35 may be required to be paid for facilities like indoor parking.
There are many apartments for rent that are described as being bachelor or studio apartments. These typically consist of one large room with a modest kitchen and bathroom facilities. Rents for these units, which are in fact only suitable for a single person, can range from $ 250 a month, up to $ 600 per month.
The apartments that are available in the lowest range are often dark and damp basement units in substandard conditions and sometimes create health hazards due to the presence of bugs and vermin. The city authorities usually post warnings to public in regard to such inhumane and unsuitable dwellings or in extreme cases, close them.
Some of the worst types of apartments are merely rooms, often located in big, old rundown rooming houses and do not deserve to be termed as apartments at all. Such rooms are unsanitary and often patronized by drug addicts, prostitutes or vagrants, where murders are common. Living in them could prove to be very dangerous and unhealthy.
In some of the better areas of the city, there are apartments for rent that are larger than some homes. Expectedly, these apartments have exorbitant rental costs, often in the range of $ 2000 plus per month. Such high end units may have a gymnasium and a spa amongst other amenities like concierge, laundry and dry-cleaning services.
Some people have apartments for rent in their homes. Many of the larger houses have even been converted to duplexes and even triplexes so as to rent them out, since some of these homes are just too large to host only one family. The downside to living in one of these units is that the walls are often very thin, allowing all sounds to travel easily to other units located in the house.
The city offers a wide assortment of apartments for rent to suit any family, situation and rental range. There is always something for somebody and one only needs to look for what one wants.
