When searching for rental townhomes, there are so many options to consider so the space serves your lifestyle. Knowing how to narrow your search can save you time, energy, and make the process more efficient. PURE Real Estate Management offers townhomes for rent in the Grand Rapids area, making it easier for you to find the perfect home. Here are tips to narrow your search when looking for townhome rentals:

1. Determine Your Rental Budget

A budget can help narrow your search and find townhomes for rent within your price range. Consider all costs like security deposits, pet fees, and utilities associated with rentals. And we recommend always breaking down your rent concessions, specials, etc. to see what your monthly rent will look like when those specials are no longer in place. Is the home still within your price point? Moving each year is a huge expense in it of itself so it’s best to set a budget that considers cost increases. 

2. Decide on Your Ideal Location

Location can impact your travel, community living, convenience, and budget. If you love the bustle of the city, a townhome in an urban area might be ideal. If you seek peace and quiet, consider a townhome in the suburbs or further from the city center. Other factors to consider when choosing a location include access to public transportation, nearby schools, safety, and nearby amenities. Knowing these factors will help you narrow your search.

3. Consider Your Must-Have Amenities

Make a list of must-have amenities that you want, as this may include ample parking, a balcony, outdoor space, laundry facilities, a fireplace, gourmet kitchens, modern bathrooms, etc. As you go through various townhomes for rent, prioritize those with the amenities on your list. Our homes at PURE Real Estate Management offer various amenities to cater to different renters’ needs.

4. Think About Your Pets

Not all rentals allow pets, or some provide pet policies before shortlisting any property. PURE Real Estate Management offers pet-friendly townhome rentals, allowing you to move in with your furry friend without hassles. We also provide fenced in yards in select communities, along with pet parks and trailheads. 

5. Determine Your Ideal Size and Layout

Townhomes come in different sizes and layouts, from 2 to 3 bedrooms with various amentities. Determine the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you need for your situation, as well as the overall layout of the townhome. If you have a large family or frequently host guests, a spacious townhome with two or three bedrooms may be necessary. A smaller townhome may be suitable if you prefer a cozy and minimalist living space. Knowing whether you want an open concept or a traditional layout can help narrow your search.
