Grimes, IA is actually named after a person. The city was started in 1894, and it was named after James W. Grimes, a former senator and the third ever governor of Iowa.

Grimes, IA is a suburban enclave of Des Moines, IA. Located to the northwest of town, Grimes and Des Moines are easily linked by Interstate-35. Most people who live in Grimes are commuters. They travel the 17 miles into the heart of downtown Des Moines regularly for work and play. Commuting is popular; in fact, there are multiple buses that will get you between the two places. However, just because people commute regularly doesn't mean there's a shortage of amenities or things to do in Grimes. In fact, Grimes is a lovely little rural town with a bounty of shops, restaurants, parks and more. If you live in Grimes, you can get into Des Moines whenever you want. You may not always want to, though, because you'll have a whole host of suburban amenities right at your fingertips.

Moving to Grimes

To decide what you want in a rental home in Grimes, think about your priorities. Do you need space? A convenient location? A bright house? Whatever it is, select what you value in order to narrow down your list of potential homes and find an apartment. Once you've narrowed down your list of apartments for rent, you can get in contact with potential landlords or realtors in order to view the homes. Seeing the apartment rentals in person can ensure that they have the right energy and feel for your taste. Along with your application, you'll also need your bank statements, copies of your IDs, pay stubs, tax returns, a letter of employment and anything else that proves you make enough money to pay your rent on time. Next, you should also be prepared to put a deposit down on an apartment. A deposit won't be necessary unless you're approved for the apartment, but once you're approved, you'll want to put the money down in order to take the apartment off the market. After all, you won't want someone to swoop in and steal it out from under your nose!
