Property Manager – “Hello, how can we help you today?”
Prospective Tenant – “Hi! I am looking for a new apartment with an attached garage.”
This is a scenario often discovered with renters in Iowa. Why? Have you seen our winters? While protection from the sub-zero temperatures and random blizzards is important, this is not the only reason our prospective tenants ask for a rental with an attached garage. Having attached garage space included with your rental is also an opportunity to store stuff you normally would not want to sit around your living room or even stuffed to the brim in a closet.
If you start with a one-stall attached garage like you would see at our Redstone rowhouses, there is ample space on each side of your vehicle to build racks upon racks in order to store your personal items throughout the year. If you are looking to go even bigger, we have a few examples for you. Our Ellis Flats, Sunny Ridge, & future Buffalo Ridge townhomes all have two-stall attached garages with plenty of space for two vehicles and in some cases, a hot rod!
At Sunny Ridge in Marion, residents also have an electric heather they may adjust throughout the seasons in order to keep this space nice and cozy. In many cases with our attached garages, residents easily roll out their grills in the warmer seasons and cook up some burgers and brats. There is clearly a multitude of reasons as to why it is beneficial for our rentals in Cedar Rapids & Marion to have the garage options for residents as we noted above.
If we look back to our original point, having coverage over your vehicles in the winter is a major convenience. I have spent many mornings warming my car up, scraping the windshield to the point of it sounding like chalk on a chalkboard, and shoveling out the snow around my tires. Trust me, this is not fun. That is why Q4 Real Estate really loves our townhome rentals because we know our residents are not dealing with this constant struggle. Instead, they open their garage in the morning, turn their vehicle on and away they go!
Like you have probably heard from a past commercial “It’s my money and I want it now”, it is your apartment choice, and you can get the garage space you covet most now! Interested the apartment options we highlighted above, contact us here.
