Gather up your friends and enjoy the fresh-water community of Shaker Heights, located in Cuyahoga County in Ohio. An eastern suburb of Cleveland, with several artificial lakes within its borders, and not far from Cuyahoga River.

What to keep in mind when looking for cheap apartments in Shaker Heights, OH

Finding cheap apartments in Shaker Heights 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 Shaker Heights 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 Shaker Heights 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 Shaker Heights.

The building you choose can also make a difference in finding a cheap apartment in Shaker Heights. 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 Shaker Heights.
