Enjoying Des Moines WA in an Apartment Versus a House

Front of Office-Des Moines Washington Apartments for Rent

When you move to the Pacific Northwest, you might have visions of working at your new job, attending school, or taking up an outdoor activity like skiing, bicycling, or hiking. However, one of the most important decisions you’ll make is where to live.

  • Will you choose to rent a house?
  • Will you buy a home?
  • Is apartment life right for you and your family?

Here are some of the reasons living in a Des Moines apartment community like Saddlebrook may be the best decision you make this year.

A Turnkey Experience Awaits

Moving into an apartment offers an ideal opportunity to decorate a new space and make it yours, and one of the best parts is that you won’t need to repair anything or fix anything in your new home. All that’s required when you move into a new apartment is that you bring your furnishings and family and do a little decorating.

Moving into a house might be a goal for you and your family some day, but having the extra time to get things repaired and up-to-par before you move in takes some extra energy and money. Consider the ease of moving into an apartment where all you have to think about is where to hang your pictures and how to arrange the furniture.

At Saddlebrook, you’ll see a washer and dryer in every apartment home, huge closets and big pantries, cozy gas fireplaces, and spacious private balconies (or patios if you’re on the ground floor). You often have to provide your own washer and dryer, as well as appliances like the refrigerator when you move into a house. These costs can greatly increase your cost of moving.

Moving into a house with a pool or with extras like a superior security system, gated access, or a gym often means living in a luxury neighborhood that comes with a luxury price tag. An apartment often provides you with many of the amenities that wouldn’t otherwise be available to you unless you were able to purchase a brand new home in an expensive area of town.

That purchase may very well be in your future, but you may not yet be at the point where you can pull out all the stops for a luxury home purchase. An apartment community like Saddlebrook is an ideal way to find yourself surrounded by a wealth of community features like a seasonal outdoor pool and an outdoor Jacuzzi.

If you choose to make your home at Saddlebrook, you’ll also have access to a garage or carport for your vehicle, extra storage space for your possessions, and a complimentary tanning studio. Enjoy the community wellness center or have fun at the basketball court and play area.

A Worry-Free & Easy Moving Experience

2 Bedroom Apartments for Rent Des Moines WAMoving can seem like an adventure, but it can also be a complex and stressful experience. The type of residence you choose to live in may impact the difficulty or ease of your move. Relocating to an apartment is quite easy once the lease is signed. Virtually all you have to do is sign the lease, get the key, and move into your new home!

When you move into a house, on the other hand, you might be sitting in limbo for quite a while during the mortgage application process. Even if you choose to rent a house, you may have to deal with buying certain appliances, setting up a half-dozen utilities and services while also dealing with general maintenance work.

Living in an apartment community means you don’t have to deal with any of those issues because your management team is on-site to provide services like 24-hour maintenance. Although different apartment communities usually provide varying amenities, the overall ease of moving into an apartment is superior to the stress and uncertainty of getting a mortgage.
