Monroe, LA is one half of what’s known as Louisiana’s “twin cities.” The other half is West Monroe, located across the Ouachita River. Monroe may be a small city but that doesn’t mean it’s devoid of activity. In fact, it’s packed with all kinds of fun stuff to do. In order to take it all in, you’ll need a place to crash and rest up for the next day’s activities, right? So let’s find you the perfect apartment in Monroe, LA.
On a tight budget? Have no fear, our penny-pinching friend; Monroe has a vast range of cheap apartments from which to choose. Studio apartments for rent are a little hard to find in Monroe, but you can rent a roomy 2-bedroom place for as little as $495 a month. Who needs a hotplate in a studio apartment when you can have a whole kitchen? If we’ve piqued your interest, check out the The Seasons Apartments on Woodale Drive.
If you’re in the market for something more posh and crave a luxury apartment for rent, you’ll find several in Monroe from which to choose. Spend up to $809 a month on rent and in return you’ll get three bedrooms and three bathrooms in almost 1,100 square feet of living space. Find these gems at Town and Country Apartments over on Old Sterlington Road. If you want to spend any more than this on rent you’ll need to rent a house.
Speaking of which, Monroe has some lovely neighborhoods with houses for rent to fit most budgets. A three-bedroom, two-bath home with over 1,800 square feet of living space rents for $1,200. The problem with renting a house in Monroe, though, is that the majority of them don’t allow pets.
Don't fear, pet owner! You’ll still find pet-friendly apartments spread throughout Monroe. The complex at Texas and Bonner allows pets with a small pet deposit and extra rent every month. The great thing about this complex is there are a number of grassy areas surrounding it that the pooch is sure to love. Some apartments for rent in Monroe are more cat-friendly than dog friendly, but if you have a tiny pooch, it doesn’t hurt to ask the landlord to allow your buddy to live with you. Keep in mind that the bigger the dog, the more of a challenge you’ll face in finding a pet-friendly apartment in Monroe.
