380 Apartments for rent in Garden City, MI with Garages
"I wanna live in a garden city, marble and glass between heaven and hell. I wanna dream when the lights go down." (- Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, "Garden City")
Garden City became a village in 1927, and its planners wanted to style it after the English "garden cities" of the time. English garden cities such as this one in America were designed so that each house was set on a large 2-acre plot to allow for home gardening and farming. All the households were essentially given space to plant their own vegetables and fruits to help sustain themselves. Now, Bock Street and John Hawk Street are the only places you can still find these miniature homesteads, since the rest of the city has been redesigned to accommodate a larger population. If you are a "gardens, not lawns!" kind of person, Garden City could probably still give you a sympathetic platform. Who wouldn't want a tiny self-sustaining acreage within a modern town, full of amenities? See more
Garden City apartments with garages are sometimes more expensive than other options. However, they may make more financial sense in the long run.
Weather, break-ins, and daily struggles to find a space can take a toll financially and physically. Remember that even cities in mild climates experience issues like salt air, tornadoes, hail, falling branches from storms, and other issues.
It’s also possible to score an auto insurance reduction if you park in a garage. Ask your insurance provider about any deals or discounts that could trim money off the cost of your monthly bill.
Before signing a lease, ask the landlord or property manager about any restrictions on garage use. It’s important to know if there are enough spaces for tenants and visitors and what happens if the garage is full. If you’re moving into an apartment inside a home, ask about any conditions on its use and if storage is allowed.
