The X Factor: Apartment Amenities

When you’re looking for apartments for rent, some of the big factors to consider are the apartment community’s amenities. An amenity in this sense can be described as “any feature that provides comfort, convenience or pleasure.”

Some properties use this definition in the simplest of ways. The most common apartment amenities include dishwashers, microwaves, normal pools, garbage disposals, ceiling fans, storage and patios.

Then there are those communities where the amenities go above and beyond the realm of “normal.” These types of amenities can really draw in potential residents.

Some of these amenities include:

  • Maid services
  • Coffee bars
  • Movie theater rooms
  • Saunas
  • Racquetball courts
  • Garden tubs
  • Self-cleaning ovens
  • Putting greens
  • Car washing stations (with vacuums)
  • Dog parks
  • Spacious parking spaces that are regularly cleaned and repaired by a parking lot paving company.

Even better, you can find apartments with those amenities through Move For Free!
