Wood floors through much of the main level. Basement storage. One off-street parking spot behind the home. Water and lawncare are included with your rent! Residents are responsible for gas, electric, trash, and snow removal. All Tenant leases with Qwest Property Management, LLC will be automatically enrolled in our Resident Benefits Package program which is $29.00 per month, in addition to the rent charge. ** If you have a Section 8 Housing Voucher - Unfortunately, Section 8 does not accept our company’s lease as the controlling legal agreement between all parties as they require the use of their HAP Agreement and Tenancy Addendum. If you were to apply with our company, it is possible that you could be “approvable” based on our company’s rental application criteria. However, because our company can not use the required standard Section 8 leasing documents, Section 8 will ultimately not work with you when trying to rent one of our properties.

City Guide for Grand Rapids, MI
What to keep in mind when looking for cheap apartments in Grand Rapids, MI

Finding cheap apartments in Grand Rapids takes some ingenuity and effort, as well as quick action. Before you head out on your search, bring along pay stubs, bank statements, letters of recommendations from landlords or employers, and identification. The more proactive you are about your search, the easier it will be to score a deal.

Look for cheap apartments in Grand Rapids by regularly scouring listings and looking during slower renting seasons, like winter. You can still find a deal if you move during the summer months when apartment hunting is more competitive.

You may be able to find cheap apartments in Grand Rapids in neighborhoods that are located away from attractions, restaurants, and entertainment. You may need to look farther out than you would prefer, but access to highways or public transportation can get you into the heart of Grand Rapids.

The building you choose can also make a difference in finding a cheap apartment in Grand Rapids. Older buildings that need some updating are more likely to have better deals. Walk-up apartments without elevators, on-street parking and few amenities like on-site fitness centers can also signal affordable rents in Grand Rapids.
