368 Apartments for rent in Oakland, TN with Parking
The word is out on Oakland. Voted one of ten best places to live in Tennessee by Movoto Real Estate in 2013, this small town has seen a huge increase in building permits and a whopping population growth rate of over 400 percent.
With that much of a growth rate, you would think that Oakland is a major destination resort town. But that's quite the contrary. Oakland is a typical small town located in West Tennessee, some 28 miles east of Memphis, along Highway 64. So what's the attraction? If you poll the 6,623 residents who live there, the response might be the town provides a quiet community with convenient access to places to eat, shop and play. In other words, residents want to distance themselves from city life, but stay close enough for an occasional trip into the big city for a larger entertainment and nightlife venue. See more
Parking can be at a premium in some cities where spaces are challenging to find. Some Oakland 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.
