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.

That's about all you need to know to enjoy life in Bessemer, Alabama. Good luck and happy hunting!

What to keep in mind when looking for dog friendly apartments in Bessemer, AL

Finding an apartment in Bessemer 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.
