Deciding on an Apartment in Orem
Apartment living in Orem, Utah, is an optimal path for people who desire an inexpensive living scenario. Don't have time to waste tending lawns and weeding flowerbeds? No problem. That's the owner's responsibility. In addition, you will usually be off the hook for routine maintenance such as plumbing and appliance fixes.
Location, Location, Location
If where you live is more important to you than how much space your Orem property occupies, Orem rental apartments are regularly situated near cultural districts and major shopping centers. A house in the same area will often be well out of many families' funding capabilities.
Privacy vs. Security
One tradeoff that comes with apartment living is guaranteed peace and quiet. Sharing walls with other people means keeping noise to a reasonable level, particularly at night. This can be worked out by good communication with your neighbors and a clear understanding of each other's expectations. The positive tradeoff: Many Orem apartments have security amenities that single-family homes often lack. They may provide gated entry, key-restricted access to the building as a whole in addition to your own apartment, and in especially fancy complexes, even a manned security system. So while you may not have a lot of separation from the people who share your walls, you do get to separate yourself from the outside world.
Most Orem apartments restrict pets, so if you have a dog, cat, hamster or other nonhuman companion, be sure you check our apartment finder (under Pets/Smoking) and inquire to the landlord about the conditions governing the complex you are looking at. Some apartment rentals allow pets with a cleaning deposit and an extra monthly fee.
One plus to living in an apartment is that the tenants' combined resources make it possible to have extra features on the grounds that you might not have the budget for on your own. Apartment complexes sometimes offer shared swimming pools and playgrounds, for example. Check out the Orem listings in our apartment guide to learn which extra features are offered.
