Why Find an Apartment in Lehi, Utah?
Lehi, Utah, located on the cusp of Utah County and the Salt Lake Valley, may have the best of both worlds. It's a short train ride from more metropolitan areas, but retains a small-town feel. It is home to Thanksgiving Point, a nonprofit garden and one of the finest family-friendly attractions in the vicinity. Many technology companies and other startups have decided to operate in the area, to provide an attractive environment for their employees. Apartment development hasn't been far behind this influx, if the number of Lehi listings you'll find on Rentler is any indication.
Is an Apartment in Lehi the Right Choice for You?
If you wish for a low-cost living space in Lehi, apartment living has a lot to be said for it. While the popular depiction of the American Dream often fed to us is one of a cute little house with a pet and midsize family, not everybody has that -- and not everybody wants it. Instead of buying into someone else's fantasy, picture your ideal living space -- what you want to spend time on and the conveniences that are most important to you. If weeding flowerbeds isn't on that list, but fast access to downtown is, then apartment life could be ideal for you.
Location Is Everything
If you care more about location than yard space, in Lehi apartments for rent are often located in the proximity of downtown and major shopping centers. A house in the same area will often be way out of many renters' budgets.
One sacrifice that comes with apartment living is guaranteed peace and quiet. Sharing walls with other tenants means keeping noise to a low level, particularly during nighttime hours. This can be offset by continual communication with the people who live within earshot and a clear understanding of everyone's expectations. On the bright side, often Lehi apartments have security features that most houses lack. They may include gated entry, code-restricted access to the building as a whole in addition to your own unit, and sometimes even an on-duty security guard. So while you have limited separation from the tenants who share your walls, you do get to separate yourself from the outside world.
Do You Have Pets?
Most Lehi apartments restrict pets, so if you have a dog, cat, gerbil or other nonhuman family member, make sure you browse our apartment finder (under Pets/Smoking) and ask the landlord about the conditions governing the complex you are looking at. Some rental apartments allow pets as long as you are willing to pay a cleaning deposit and an additional monthly fee.
One plus to apartment living is that the renters' pooled resources allow for extra features on the grounds that you might not have the budget for on your own. Apartment complexes sometimes provide shared swimming pools and playgrounds, for instance. Check out the Lehi listings in our apartment guide to discover which extra features are offered.
