Is Apartment Life in Clearfield, UT the Best Decision for Your Situation?
If you desire a more affordable, low-upkeep lifestyle in Clearfield, Utah, living in an apartment has a lot to be said for it. While the picture of the American Dream is often one of a big house with a dog, a spouse and 2.5 kids, not everybody is there yet -- and not everybody wants it. Instead of working toward someone else's dream, picture your ideal living scenario -- what you want to expend time on and the amenities that are most important to you. If gardening isn't on that list, but fast access to downtown is then apartment life could be optimal for you.
Location, Location, Location
If you care more about location than yard space, in Clearfield rental apartments are regularly situated near downtown and major shopping centers. A house in the same area will often be far out of many households' funding capabilities.
One sacrifice that accompanies apartment living is privacy. Sharing walls with other tenants means keeping sound to a considerate level, especially at night. This can be made harmonious by clear communication with the people who live within earshot and a clear understanding of everyone's expectations. On the bright side: A lot of Clearfield apartments have security amenities that most houses lack. They may include gated entry, key-restricted access at the front door, and maybe even an on-duty security guard. So while you have limited separation from the people who share your walls, you do get to separate yourself from the outside world.
Many Clearfield apartments ban pets, so if you have a dog, cat, rabbit or other nonhuman family member, make sure to check our apartment finder (under Pets/Smoking) and inquire to the apartment manager about the conditions governing the complex you are considering. Some rental apartments allow pets as long as you are willing to pay a cleaning deposit and an extra monthly fee.
One advantage to apartment living is that the renters' pooled resources provide the option for extra amenities on the grounds that you might not have the budget for on your own. Apartment complexes sometimes provide shared hot tubs and playgrounds, for example. Scan the Clearfield listing descriptions in our apartment guide to find out which extra features are available.
