City Guide for Okemos, MI

Okemos seems like it’s in the middle of nowhere. In fact, it once was. Okemos was once a Native American settlement and trading point for the Ojibwa Indians, and the town was named after Chief John Okemos.

Today Okemos is a thriving but slightly remote suburb of Lansing. Lansing attracts a diverse population because it’s both Michigan’s capitol and is home to Michigan State University. In 2011, CNN Money magazine said Okemos was the 12th best city for hip, young singles. Okemos is an attractive place for people to live if they want a more rural, slower-paced alternative to Lansing. Many people also choose to live in Okemos if they need convenient access to other cities in the state, including Grand Rapids, Detroit and Ann Arbor. Okemos is an approximately equal distance from all three cities. See more

What to keep in mind when looking for apartments with hardwood floors in Okemos, MI

Scoring an apartment with hardwood floors can be a big win for Okemos 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.
