Why Find an Apartment in Provo?
Provo and the surrounding Utah County have experienced rapid growth in the past few years. Known as one of the best places in the country to raise a family, Provo is a safe place to live with many family-friendly activities. As the area experiences even greater population growth, apartments, condominiums and townhouses are springing up everywhere. Meanwhile, Utah rental prices and cost of living in general remain well below the national average, which is another draw to living here. Plus, now that the state's commuter train, FrontRunner, runs from Provo all the way up to Ogden, it's easier than ever to get around. If you browse our Rentler apt. listings, you're sure to find something that suits your needs.
Apartment Living in Provo, UT: Benefits & Drawbacks
Living in an apartment in Provo, Utah, is an optimal choice for households who desire an affordable living situation. Don't have time to waste cutting lawns and gardening? It's okay. That's the owner's responsibility. Also, you'll generally be off the hook for periodic work like painting and furnace repair.
Location Is Everything
If location is more important to you than how much space your Provo real estate takes up, in Provo rental apartments are regularly located near historic downtown and popular commercial areas. It’s also home to Brigham Young University, if you’re looking for student housing. A house in the same area will often be way out of many tenants' budgets.
One sacrifice that accompanies apartment living is privacy. Sharing walls with other families means keeping noise to a considerate level, particularly in the wee hours. This can be offset by clear communication with the people who live within earshot and a respect of each other's expectations. On the bright side, many Provo apartments come with security features that most houses lack. They may provide gated entry, code-restricted access to the building, and maybe even a manned security system. So while you have limited separation from the people who share your walls, you get added privacy from the outside world.
Do You Have Pets?
Most Provo apartments ban pets, so if you have a dog, cat, rabbit or other nonhuman companion, be sure you check our apartment finder (under Pets/Smoking) and ask the apartment manager about the stipulations governing the complex you are considering. Some rental apartments are pet-friendly as long as you pay a cleaning deposit and an additional monthly fee.
One advantage to apartment living 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 provide shared hot tubs and playgrounds, for instance. Check out the Provo listings in our apartment guide to learn which amenities are available.
Space and Luxury Level
Whether your search for Provo apartment rentals steers you toward a studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, or even larger, apartment square footage tends to be on the cozy side compared to a house. However, both spaciousness and degree of luxury can vary. It's difficult to have a sense of how suitable the apartments for rent are in an area in Provo without taking a firsthand look at a few. However, looking through the images in the ads on our site will start you off right.
