The Apartment Complex: Pros and Cons

For those looking to find a home through a rental agency or through Craigslist, they should consider the, pros, and cons of renting an apartment in an apartment complex. So what are these pros and cons of renting an apartment in an apartment complex?

Renting in an Apartment Complex

If youre looking to rent an apartment in a complex, such as a Petaluma apartment complex or a Santa Rosa apartment complex, you will most likely need to have a good credit rating. Many apartment complexes are owned and managed by large rental companies that arent willing to rent to people if they have a bad credit score. They assume that if your score is bad that you have a habit of not paying your bills, and they dont want to take the risk of leasing you an apartment and you not pay your rent.

The pros of renting an apartment in a Santa Rosa or Petaluma apartment complex are that any repairs due to wear and tear are the responsibility of the rental company to fix or replace (unless you damaged it). This includes: burst pipes, electrical problems, pest infestations (caused by other tenants), worn and broken appliances, and other problems that arent caused directly by you. Also, apartment complexes feature amenities that renters are allowed to take advantage of. These amenities include (but not all complexes): swimming pool, Jacuzzi, Laundromat, fitness center, community room that can be rented for parties or meetings, playground, basketball court, tennis court, assigned parking and some offer security gates.

Another pro of renting an apartment in an apartment complex is that there is never a lack of neighbors. For the person that loves meeting new people will love living in an apartment complex.
The con of renting a Santa Rosa or Petaluma apartment complex is that you have a lot of neighbors. For those who dont like being surrounded by people they dont know, living in an apartment complex probably isnt a good idea. Not knowing who your neighbors are can be scary, and living in fear isnt healthy. Another con is that a lot of rental properties owned and managed by large rental companies charge a lot of money depending on the location, amenities and the size of your living unit.

One more con is that you are at the mercy of the rental company, meaning that even if you want to move, your apartment is falling apart around you or you want to paint of upgrade your appliances, you are stuck in the lease and the conditions of the lease.

Renting an apartment in a Santa Rosa or Petaluma apartment complex can be a wonderful way to find a great place to live, but always be aware of the good and bad of complex living.
