Alamo Heights is the one place in Texas that is well-known for being an ultra-safe place that belongs to members of the upper-class of the state. If you search for “Alamo Heights apartment for rent” on Google, you will find that there are many properties for rent there. And if you click and take a look at the listings, you will see that most apartments have cool amenities like swimming pool and gym.
You might think that all apartments for rent in Alamo Heights are the same, however, the truth is that there are slight differences between them that, although small, makes the difference that makes in your decision to stay in a particular apartment or not.
The first difference is the price against the number of rooms. While some apartments start at $600 for one-bedroom spaces, there are those that charge $700 or $800 as starting prices for their one-bedroom apartments. What you want to do is to find out why there is a big difference in price for the specs. In all likelihood, the apartments that belong to the $800 price have a bigger space. If not that, then the apartment complex itself has other amenities that justify its price, like concierge service and/or a bigger swimming pool. But this is just a guess that we have.
If you are renting for the long-term, make sure to check out the pictures posted by tenants AND, more importantly, check out the floor plans that will give you an idea on how much floor space you can actually use when you move in.
The second difference that we see among the apartments is the location relative to where everything else. There are apartments that are just a walking distance away from bike rentals, while there are those that sit only a few minutes away from San Antonio, which surrounds Alamo Heights.
Some people need to be extremely near to a shopping mall in order to survive. Obviously, if you are one of these people, you need to make sure that the apartment you rent is the nearest to the most noteworthy shopping mall.
The third difference is probably the most important: The rules and regulations being enforced in each apartment. Make sure to read a sample contract before signing a lease agreement. Really, we do not need to tell you but there are apartments out there that have rules against bringing in pets.
