How many apartments with parking are available for rent in Ferndale?
Ferndale used to be known as Jam because the town was located next to a log jam on the Nooksack River, but the town's school teacher took it upon herself to give the town a more "picturesque" name. She was reported to have been inspired by the ferns that grew next to the original schoolhouse.
Ferndale is situated between the Pacific Ocean and Cascade Mountains -- so you know it isn't ugly. The area has a moderate climate, and the average rainfall is about 34 inches. This coastal city was settled in 1872 and incorporated on March 19, 1907, and today it covers a little less than seven miles, so you can run from end-to-end pretty darn quick, if you like. If you prefer wheeled transportation, Interstate 5 is where you'll want to be -- it is the only main highway that serves the area. However, if you want an international adventure, Ferndale is situated just 13 miles from the Canadian border. According to the most recent census, the city has a population of nearly 12,000 people.

Parking can be at a premium in some cities where spaces are challenging to find. Some Ferndale 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.
