City Guide for Edwardsville, IL

Abraham Lincoln once said, "Whatever you are, be a good one." The plumbers of Edwardsville took the former president's statement to heart, and word of the awesome community they formed leaked out.

Don't ever underestimate the power of plumbing. It helped Edwardsville, located on the western side of Illinois in Madison County, to become the construction capital it is today. Starting out as a model village cooperative for plumbing factories' workers, then-named Leclaire grew prosperous by offering its plumbing personnel fair wages, reasonable working hours and a share of the profits. Workers were able to purchase their own homes, and they developed a sense of community which still exists today. Ultimately incorporated into Edwardsville, the town continues to prosper as it protects its plumbing pedigree. See more

What to keep in mind when looking for apartments with balconies in Edwardsville, IL

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