City Guide for Bessemer, AL

Bessemer is truly a mixed bag of Alabama-nuts. Around here, neighborhoods range from cute to historic to country. It's a certain kind of living, so read on to learn all about renting in this community of Alabama land.

This little city is full of historic streets with historic buildings, houses, and even some historic eateries. The Bright Star is a local restaurant that has been serving food in a small cafe since 1907. Moving away from the historic districts, you will find a few golf courses giving certain areas of town a more suburban-feel, as well as the Watercress Darter National Wildlife Refuge, where protected lands provide some beautiful scenery and a chance to catch a glimpse of the endangered watercress darter.

You’ll find that most people around here are very warm and friendly. Unlike some bigger cities, when you move into a new home here, you can expect four or five of your next-door neighbors to come a knockin' with some fresh southern cooking and a warm neighborhood welcome. So, don't let any preconceptions keep you from opening the door and greeting your new neighbors!

Rental properties can cost anywhere from $500 to $1,300. There are cheap apartments throughout the city. Pricier apartment rentals are located in stylish downtown flats with long lists of amenities and extravagant floor plans. However, the most expensive places in town will be those nice, big rental homes, many of which back up to golf courses and protected woods. These rent for about $1,000 or more. There are also some more affordable little brick houses and ranch homes available for less than $800.

If you’re looking for apartment communities with luxury amenities -- such as swimming pools, clubhouses, and fitness centers -- then you’re in luck. There are a few apartment rentals with all these luxuries and more. There are also some rentals available with more surprising services, such as in-unit washing machines that can really make life easier.

Lucky for you pet-lovers, the city of Bessemer is full of pet friendly apartments and rental homes. Feel free to bring your furry friends along.

What to keep in mind when looking for apartments with hardwood floors in Bessemer, AL

Scoring an apartment with hardwood floors can be a big win for Bessemer renters. They`re typically a beautiful addition to your space. They’re also easier to clean and sweep, particularly if you have pets.

However, there are some downsides. Hardwood floors carry sounds. They can also make your apartment noisy for your roommates and downstairs neighbors.

Ask the landlord or property manager about the hardwood floors before signing a lease. Are they actually hardwood or a popular composite alternative? The latter is probably easier to clean and care for than the real thing.

It’s also important to ask about who’s responsible for any damage to the floors and what that entails. Your security deposit could take a hit from scratches, dents, and other damage.

Consider the type of climate you live in. Hardwood floors typically don’t fare well in damp climates full of moisture. Stains and buckling are common in hardwood floors after rain flooding or excessive moisture.

However, hardwood floors can be ideal for dry climates or sunny areas for renters who love the way they look.
