Top 5 Things to Know Before Renting in Detroit

  1. Understand Detroit’s Neighborhoods

Detroit is home to an array of unique neighborhoods, each of which will offer a unique living experience. Narrowing down where you want to live will be one of the first steps in renting a new home in Detroit. You’ll be able to choose from Midtown, the University District, Corktown, Downtown, and more, and you’ll love exploring all the enticing spaces that await. However, our favorite district is Downtown Detroit, where you can easily explore all the other neighborhoods while still living in the heart of the city. Just outside your door, you’ll find dining, shopping, entertainment, and more, and there are abundant transportation options nearby. Surround yourself with high-rise buildings, parks, breweries, markets, and more when you live in Downtown Detroit.

  1. Get to Know the Rental Market

Once you narrow down a neighborhood, you’ll want to get to know the rental market in the area. Although prices in Downtown are more than they are in the suburbs, you will still appreciate a lower cost of living than most major cities have to offer. When you consider cost, you will also want to consider convenience. You won’t have to pay as much for transportation Downtown, thanks to the nearby bus routes, and grocery stores, restaurants, and low-cost entertainment are within walking distance. However, much more will go into deciding where you want to live.

  1. Pin Down How Many Bedrooms You Need

Deciding how many bedrooms you want in your new apartment in Detroit will be a large factor in where you live. If you live alone, usually a one-bedroom floor plan will suit your needs, however, if you work from home, have a lot of hobbies, or anything else, you may want more room, so you’ll want to look for more square feet. However, two-bedroom apartments are abundant in Downtown, including at Detroit City Club Apartments, so you can easily find the perfect roommate floor plan.

  1. Identify What Amenities You’re Looking For

If you have figured out a neighborhood, price range, and floor plan that you’re looking for, it may be time to look at the details. You will want to see what amenities you’re looking for inside and outside of your home. Whether you want spa-inspired bathrooms or renovated kitchens or a sky park with Downtown views, a rooftop swimming pool, or an on-site market, you can find it all in our apartment community. All our homes offer abundant storage, and some even have office or den space. Contact our team to learn about which layouts are available now!

  1. Prepare to Navigate the Rental Process

If you have all this sorted out, it’s time to start the rental process. You’ll have to fill out applications for any apartment community you’re considering, so you’ll want to have the basics squared away. Make sure you have money put aside for application fees, a list of where you’ve previously lived, and questions that you want to ask before signing a lease. Contact our leasing office for questions about what you’ll need to apply!
