How much is rent for an apartment with a balcony in Youngtown?
How many apartments with balconies are available for rent in Youngtown?
Youngtown has quite the ironic name. Or, maybe it was an exercise in positive thinking. Youngtown was started as a retirement community that excluded young people. Things have changed quite a bit since then.
Youngtown has the distinction of being the oldest retirement community in the United States. But these days the town is a vibrant area of the Northwest Phoenix Valley of the Sun that is home to 6,156 people of all ages. The area is decidedly small, under two miles of land make up the town, but makes up for its size with a very involved and active community. The town was formed in 1954 when a couple of developers bought up 320 acres of farmland and created the first master-planned adult community in the United States. These men were well ahead of Del Webb and his Sun City community, which is now a neighbor. Things changed for Youngtown in 1996, however, when a resident was denied a request for a 16-year-old to live in Youngtown with them. The Arizona Attorney General got involved and it was determined that this particular bylaw was no good. By 1999, Youngtown was just a regular American town where anyone, and everyone, could live.

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 Youngtown renters. Ask about apartments on higher floors for the best views.
