How many apartments with hardwood floors are available for rent in San Lorenzo?
San Lorenzo Village was one of the nation's first planned communities, with parcels designated for schools, churches, parks, and several retail centers.
Located just across the bay from and south of San Francisco, the pleasant city of San Lorenzo once bore the less attractive moniker of "Squatterville." It was so dubbed because California Gold Rush miners camped between the former Mexican land grant properties of Rancho San Lorenzo and Rancho San Leandro. They may not have found gold but they could've found oysters. Oysters were introduced to the bay, brought all the way around the cape from Patchogue, Long Island on the east coast by a half-shell loving gent named Moses Wicks in the 19th Century. Originally designed as a planned community in 1944, the town featured neighborhoods of two and three bedroom homes, parks, schools, and retail centers, San Lorenzo served as a model for other well known communities like Levittown, PA.

Scoring an apartment with hardwood floors can be a big win for San Lorenzo 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.
