239 Apartments for rent in Parole, MD with Hardwood Floors
"Our eternal love was show the way, / by the fleet of lights out on Annapolis' bay." (- Brooke Marie)
Parole is a small town in Anne Arundel County, Maryland with a population of around 15,900 people. It’s right on the border of Annapolis and effectively acts as a suburb to the state capital. The name came from its former role as a parole camp for the Union and Confederate Prisoners of War – maybe not the most pleasing name for a town, but rest assured it looks nothing like a prison camp today! It’s located right next to the Annapolis Mall and a large medical center, both nice features for a little town to have. See more
Scoring an apartment with hardwood floors can be a big win for Parole 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.
