With renters accounting for less than 30 percent of residents, you won’t find too many apartments for rent in the Gadsden area. That doesn’t mean, however, you won’t be able to enjoy top-notch amenities at the handful of apartment complexes that dot the city streets. Luckily, inexpensive apartments are standard; $500-$600 tops will land you a basic one-bedroom apartment, usually equipped with swimming pool, laundry facility, covered parking, and other quality amenities. Looking for a family-sized luxury rental in Gadsden? A few two and three-bedroom units with spacious interiors (1000-plus square feet) are typically available for rent year-round, and even these apartments rarely cost more than $800.
Some apartments in Gadsden are pet-friendly and others aren’t, so pet owners should ensure that a landlord’s pet restrictions are agreeable before scheduling a visit. Also, since most rental properties in Gadsden are on the older side (only about 2 percent of all residences were built in the past 20 years). Be sure give your new place a solid inspection before settling in. Make sure the pipes, sinks, faucets, toilets, and showerheads aren’t leaky, all appliances, lighting fixtures, and fans function, and that the ceilings and walls aren’t covered in watermarks. If an apartment doesn’t pass the eye test, just move on down the line to the next place, because waiting lists are nonexistent and plenty of quality rentals are just waiting for peeps like you to make them your own!
We recommend visiting in advance to make sure you’re comfy with its small town vibes and laid back pace of life before signing a lease. Much of the landscape is suburban (there are plenty of rural areas as well in outlying areas like Rainbow City and Hokes Bluff), so hopefully you enjoy plenty of open spaces! If you do, and you appreciate a high-quality rental at a low-cost price, you’ll soon fall in love with apartment life in Gadsden!
Best of luck and happy hunting!
