584 Apartments for rent in Cedar Hills, OR with Parking
Cedar Hills, OR: it's an icon of post-WWII boom times that's also a modern suburb. Construction started out here in 1946, right after the war ended. When construction wrapped up on the original neighborhood in 1961, it was the largest single-tract construction project in the Western United States.
The census-designated place of Cedar Hills has changed boundaries over the years. Part of the original area has been annexed by the city of Beaverton, and part still falls under a Portland address. So it's literally all over the place. The Sunset Highway (U.S. 26) formed the north boundary, while the other edges were less defined. These days, Cedar Mills on the north side of 26 is also thought of as part of the same community by many. The north-south Highway 217 goes through the middle. Since its inception, Cedar Hills has been seen as a highly desired place to live, and prices on house rentals reflect that. The nearby areas have filled in somewhat, and the population has grown, but the entire region remains committed to green space and environmental protection. Think of it as Portlandia meets American Suburbia -- some of that great "weird" vibe stirred in with what is understood to be classic suburban life. See more
Parking can be at a premium in some cities where spaces are challenging to find. Some Cedar Hills apartments offer parking options, either outside in a common area or within a private garage.
Ask about the stipulations around the parking. Those may include how many guests are allowed and where tenants park.
Some apartments may only allow parking in front of your own unit. Guest parking may be in a common area for up to one person.
If parking is scarce, look around the area before you sign a lease. Ample street parking in a neighborhood championed for its safety is probably fine. However, it’s probably not worth signing a lease if it means battling for daily parking for you and your guests.
Research whether you need a city permit to park in the neighborhood. Look into the associated costs and what to do about visitors who need parking.
Some tenants prefer garage parking near their units. However, an open-air lot may prove cheaper.
Keep in mind that the cost of wear and tear from parking outside can add up. It may be less expensive, in the long run, to look for an apartment with garage parking.
