City Guide for Fairview Heights, IL

"Well, out of Southern Illinois / Come a down home country boy. / He's gonna make it in the city / Playin' guitar in the studio." - Jim Croce

A charming town located just outside East St. Louis, its claim to fame is being the dominant shopping area for southwestern Illinois. With a population of 17,078 people, it's tiny enough to have that small town, Midwestern charm but big enough to offer entertainment and, of course, shopping for all. With St. Louis just across the river, there are all kinds of food, sports and museums available, and, of course, that lovely arch! See more

What to keep in mind when looking for apartments with hardwood floors in Fairview Heights, IL

Scoring an apartment with hardwood floors can be a big win for Fairview Heights 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.
