Many apartments for rent available are in our city. The standard rent may vary from $400 per month up to $1500 for a luxury suite. This price is for a one-bedroom-apartment with a fully fitted kitchen and a full bathroom. Usually you have to put a security/damage deposit in as well. Such a deposit normally is equal to half a month rental price. In some cases utilities are included in the price, and in other they are not. If paid separately utility costs vary depending on usage.
One of my sisters was very fortunate to find a nice apartment for rent in a very quiet building for only $550 per month. And it’s only a few blocks away from where I live. In fact she’s paying a bit more as there is an additional fee of $35 per month that goes for using the indoor underground parking. In her building there are also some additional extras as cable TV, air conditioning and an indoor pool, that are available to tenants’ families.
Another popular type of apartments for rent that are widely available are the so called bachelor apartments or studios. Their rent varies between $250 and $600 per month, because they only consist of a large room with a modest kitchenette and bathroom facilities. And as you can guess they are really only suitable for a single person. Usually the lowest range ones are in fact old damp and dark basement, and most of them are in such a condition that living there is a real danger. All the bugs and vermin they often host create such health hazards that it’s not rare at all, the City to close them down and warn the public about such inhuman dwellings.
Unfortunately there is another type of apartments for rent offered in our town that are even worse. In fact they are not apartments at all, they are only rooms, usually situated in an old ex-boarding house. Places like these do often attract prostitutes, drug addicts and all type of underground world members. Apart from being very filthy and unsanitary, such dwellings are also extremely dangerous because of the people who stay there. Murders in such type of dwellings do happen on a regular basis.
Of course there are great apartments for rent too – situated in the most prestigious areas of the city and are often with bigger size than some homes. They do usually offer top quality and of course feature additional facilities as saunas, spas and gyms available for their tenants. Laundry and dry-cleaning along with concierge services are not a rarity at all. And all that comes at the corresponding price, that’s usually in the $2000+ per month range.
There are also people who do offer apartments for rent situated in their own houses. In case the house is way too big for one family only there is nothing bad in converting it into a duplex or triplex and renting out. And many people have done so. But the most important downside of those is that being in fact one house they have very thin inner walls that allow noise to spread easily to the other units and no one actually has any privacy there.
So as expected, there is such a wide variety of apartment for rent offered in the City, that they can suit any rental range or family situation possible. Actually anybody can find one that suits for him.
