76 Apartments for rent in Saraland, AL with Balconies
First it was called Alvarez Station. Then it was Cleveland Station. Then it settled on the name of Saraland. This small city finally found its calling in life as the friendly neighbor accepting the overspill of people from Mobile.
Sometimes it takes a community a while to get going, and that describes Saraland. Only 12 miles north of Mobile and located on both sides of I-65, Saraland is a tiny city with a personality complex. It is called the "Gateway to Progress" but claims that it represents progress on its own, thank you very much. There seems to be a bit of "small dog" complex going on. Its history says it was "sparsely population" at the start of the century, but the population "swelled" to 4,595 by 1960 and then "swelled" again to the current 13,405. Saraland continues to swell as Mobile expands! See more
Balconies are a coveted amenity for many renters looking for high-rise views and opportunities for fresh air. However, you should keep in mind that balconies often come with restrictions.
Before signing a lease, ask about how many people can be on the balcony at once. Also, ask about whether you’re allowed to store a bike or other items.
You’ll also want to know about any maintenance schedules. Using your balcony as storage could result in fines and intervention from your property management.
Keep in mind that not all balconies are created equally. You may discover the views of the parking area are less than optimal or reduce your overall privacy.
Balconies can also get messy with debris, foliage, dirt, and pollen depending on your location. Renters are typically responsible for any clean-up and basic balcony upkeep.
Regardless of the issues to keep in mind, balconies are usually a big win for Saraland renters. Ask about apartments on higher floors for the best views.
