How much is rent for an apartment with a balcony in Big Lake?
How many apartments with balconies are available for rent in Big Lake?
Big Lake, MN, was named for -- surprise -- a big lake. One which was a very important part of the economy of Minnesota's Twin Cities. Before there were refrigerators, or for that matter the blue plastic ice packs you may use to keep your picnic lunches cool -- there were ice boxes. And they needed ice. And that came from Big Lake.
Big Lake had a population of 10,060 as of the last census in 2010. Located 41 miles from Minneapolis and less than 30 miles from St. Cloud, this lovely small city is close to urban culture but offers many community activities and natural beauty within its boundaries in Sherburne County. It's convenient to both Route 10 and I-94, for easy transportation. See more
Balconies are a coveted amenity for many renters looking for high-rise views and opportunities for fresh air. However, you should keep in mind that balconies often come with restrictions.
Before signing a lease, ask about how many people can be on the balcony at once. Also, ask about whether you’re allowed to store a bike or other items.
You’ll also want to know about any maintenance schedules. Using your balcony as storage could result in fines and intervention from your property management.
Keep in mind that not all balconies are created equally. You may discover the views of the parking area are less than optimal or reduce your overall privacy.
Balconies can also get messy with debris, foliage, dirt, and pollen depending on your location. Renters are typically responsible for any clean-up and basic balcony upkeep.
Regardless of the issues to keep in mind, balconies are usually a big win for Big Lake renters. Ask about apartments on higher floors for the best views.
