Hey, y’all! Welcome to apartmentlist.com, the virtual one-stop shop for all your Athens, Alabama apartment hunting needs! Situated in quiet little Limestone County in the Huntsville metropolitan area, “Little Athens” is a favorite stomping grounds for families, singles, retirees, and working professionals alike and plays host to some of Dixie’s most affordable apartments for rent. Are you just jonesin’ to score the apartment of your dreams in Athens by any chance? Then you’ve come to the perfect...
A little money goes a long way in Athens, where cheap apartments definitely rule the roost (Four to six hundred bucks, tops, is all it takes to land a quality 1 or 2 bedroom apartment or townhouse in Athens). Amenities, meanwhile, tend to be top notch, as many apartment complexes come equipped with in-unit washers/dryers, oversized swimming pools, fitness centers, clubhouses, balconies, patios, garage parking, and magic elves who clean your house while you sleep (okay, perhaps we exaggerate). Pet-friendly (including dogs allowed) rentals are available in abundance as well (ditto for furnished apartments in Athens), and waiting lists are rare, so feel free to shop the market leisurely before deciding which humble abode is the best fit for you. Just arm yourself with a couple forms of I.D. (sorry, League of Justice cards don’t qualify), proof of income, and a list of previous residences when you’re ready to submit a leasing app, and you’ll be kicking back in your Athens dream pad before you know it!
There’s no such thing as a danger area in Athens, fortunately, as crime rates are pretty low throughout the city. Still, if you’re not familiar with the area, you should probably visit Athens in advance to make sure you’re comfy with its laid back, small town Southern vibes. Also, since you’ll be living in the heart of “Tornado Alley,” you may want to consider a basic renter’s insurance (which usually costs less than $20 a month) that covers the cost of your belongings in case they blow into Georgia or the Land of Oz one day.
Home to a quaint downtown shopping district, the walker-friendly George S. Houston Historic District, and a wide range of open spaces, parks, museums, historic sites, and eateries, Athens is a city with something to offer to renters of all shapes and sizes. So what are you waiting for, bold apartment scavengers? Start sifting through the listings for a primo crash pad in Athens, and happy hunting! See more
Finding an apartment in Athens that accepts your pet may not be easy, but it’s very possible. Keep in mind, most of the time you’ll have to pay a premium for bringing your dog along in your new apartment. Some apartments require you to pay monthly pet rent, others will ask for a non-refundable pet fee or a refundable pet deposit.
While landlords and property management companies have varying pet policies, most of them limit the number of dogs you can bring to your apartment and include breed and weight restrictions.
If your pet falls under some of the restrictions outlined in the pet policy, it’s still worth asking the landlord if they can make an exception for your dog. Preparing a pet resume ahead of time could help you build the case for your furry friend. Make sure to include information on behavioral training your dog went through over the years and proof of vaccinations. If you can, include references from your former landlord and/or neighbors.
