Relocating to a new town or a new home can be a bit of an upheaval, but moving to Mulvane is no more of a challenge than moving anywhere else. There's plenty of housing for rent in Mulvane, so it shouldn't take you too long to find yourself a property. It's a good idea to leave at least four to six weeks to find property rentals in the city. However, if you're the sort of person who has very specific ideas about what you want from a property, you may need to allow a little more time or be willing to compromise somewhat (ask yourself if you really need those gold faucets and that south-facing breakfast room).
Whether you're looking for apartment homes or larger houses, your landlord will usually ask for more or less the same things before you can move in. You'll generally need to show some ID, proof of income, rental history and credit history. It's likely that you'll have to pay a full month's rent upfront along with a security deposit, which will be returned to you at the end of the tenancy, as long as you keep the place in good shape.
Although the whole city of Mulvane only covers a little over 4-1/2 square miles, you might be surprised at how much difference there is between the neighborhoods. In some areas it's all tree-lined boulevards, green spaces and, well, more trees, whereas in other neighborhoods you'll be close to civilization and not too far from a good slice of pizza. There's pros and cons to every area, so it's really down to personal preference.
North Rock: This neighborhood is a little outside of town, so you'll be further from the main shops and restaurants. Homes here tend to be larger and set on bigger plots.
City Center: The center of Mulvane is a good place to look for city apartments. You may have less green space, but it sure is a convenient area to live in.
Rivera: This neighborhood mostly contains newer properties with a good mixture of houses and apartment buildings.
The biggest community event in Mulvane is the annual Old Settlers Celebration, which features a carnival, a pageant, a parade, food stalls and much more. If you like to get out and about, you may be pleased to know there are 14 city parks in Mulvane, with some great sporting and recreational facilities. If you're in the mood for a little bit of history and culture, you can check out the Mulvane Historical Museum on 300 W. Main Street. When you're feeling lucky, there's always some fun to be had at the Kansas Star Casino.
