Why Find an Apartment in Sandy, Utah?
For those who want a taste of city life without the crowds and chaos of actually living in the city, Sandy is a perfect choice. Located a short highway or public-transit travel from Salt Lake City proper, Sandy is a suburb that has grown into its own. Here you'll find the South Towne Center shopping mall, the Jordan Commons restaurant and cinema complex, and the Southtowne Expo Center, which hosts fascinating touring expositions year-round. And don’t forget Rio Tinto Stadium, home of the Real Salt Lake soccer team. Add them all up, and it's no wonder that the influx of Sandy residents has led to the development of many new apartment dwellings, ready for people to move in.

Living in an Apartment in Sandy
If you prefer a low-cost living space in Sandy, Utah, renting an apartment has a lot to be said for it. While the picture of the American Dream often fed to us is one of a suburban house with a dog and midsize family, not everybody has that -- and not everybody wants that. Instead of buying into someone else's fantasy, imagine your perfect living space -- what you want to expend time on and the conveniences that are the highest priority for you. If gardening isn't on that list but easy access to downtown is, for instance, then apartment life could be optimal for you.
Spacious vs. Conveniently Located
If you care more about location than yard space, in Sandy apartments for rent are often located near cultural districts and popular commercial areas. A house in the same neighborhood could be way out of many people's budgets.
One tradeoff that comes with apartment living is privacy. Sharing walls with other renters means keeping sound to a reasonable level, particularly at night. This can be offset by regular communication with the people who live within earshot and a clear understanding of each other's expectations. The positive tradeoff is that often Sandy apartments come with security amenities that most houses lack. They may include gated entry, code-restricted access to the building as a whole in addition to your own apartment, and sometimes 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.
Dealing With the Pet Question
Most Sandy apartments ban pets, so if you have a dog, cat, gerbil or other nonhuman companion, be sure you browse our apartment finder (under Pets/Smoking) and ask the landlord about the guidelines governing the complex you are considering. Some apartments for rent are pet-friendly with a cleaning deposit and an extra monthly fee.
One plus to apartment living is that the tenants' pooled resources make it possible to have extra amenities on the grounds that you might not have the budget for on your own. Apartment complexes sometimes provide shared swimming pools and fitness centers, for instance. Check the Sandy listings in our apartment guide to find out which extra features are offered.
Space and Luxury Level
Whether your search for Sandy apartment rentals leads you toward a studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, or even larger, apartment square footage tends to be on the small side in comparison to a house. That said, both square footage and level of luxury vary greatly. It's hard to really understand how suitable the apartments for rent in Sandy are without taking a firsthand look at a few. However, looking through the pictures in the ads above will get you off to a good start. Everything from cheap studio apartments in low-rent areas to fancy condominiums and townhouses for rent right in the heart of the city, can be discovered in our Rentler Sandy, UT, apartment finder listings.
