Wondering about the local renter's life in Radford, Virginia? Well in one, big, hyphenated phrase, it’s best described as a family-friendly-college-river-town. It's a beautiful life, and we've got all the renting and living tips you need to find the perfect new place to call home.
This city is both blue and white collar, conservative and liberal, fun and boring, and all-around perfectly pleasant. Local parks provide lots of outdoors-lovin', family-friendly fun, with riverside nature trails and some beautiful bike paths. The treasure of downtown is the old fashioned, independent, single-screen theater showing first-release films and popping fresh popcorn with real butter. But, the real treat of living here is being able to enjoy all the culture of a local university with all the family-friendly vibes of a small, safe community.
If you'd prefer to avoid those "crazy college kids" then look for rentals on the west side of town. If you are one of those crazy college kids, then look east of downtown. Either way, the rental rates aren't too bad. Old Victorians-turned apartments and duplexes, small brick buildings, and classic townhomes can be found in the $700 - $1,000 range. Or, if you're looking for something bigger, you can find some really nice places in the $1,000 - $2,000 range. Students can also just rent by the room, which is usually about $300 - $500 per person.
When it comes to amenities, the apartment communities in Radford don't usually feature long lists of extra perks. In fact, you'd be lucky to even get the maintenance taken care of. So, when moving to town, look for places near the amenities of the city - such as the river, or a gym, or a Laundromat.
Pet friendly apartments and other rental properties are easy to find around here, with rentals that allow cats, dogs, fish, lizards, and other aquarium-dwelling creatures. However, if you have a bigger dog, then choices will be somewhat limited. Always call and ask about your to-be landlord’s pet policies.
Now that you've got the feel of this little city, it's time to scroll through those listings and find a new place to call home. Best of luck!
Parking can be at a premium in some cities where spaces are challenging to find. Some Radford 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.
