Find Top High Rises for rent
High rises generally showcase astonishing views of the city, spacious floor plans, and luxury living. Residents can select from penthouse views, including gourmet kitchens and tall ceilings. Expect amenities like concierge and valet dry cleaning services and a full-service business center including Wi-Fi and faxing capabilities. Galleria highrises are within walking distance of many retailers and shops. These apartments lie near popular thoroughfares and freeways including Highway 59 and the Interstate 10 Freeway.
But Houston doesn’t boast that many high rise apartment homes compared to other major cities in the U.S. If you are open to leasing some private rentals, then you will have more options at your fingertips. Still though, if your set on a high rise, all you will really need to is get in your vehicle and drive around the more affluent sections of town. This will also give you a brief idea what each neighborhood is like. Start in the Medical Center and work your way north to Downtown, which is just a short distance. Then start your way west keeping your eyes peeled, until you reach the Uptown area.
What should you expect to budget for one bedroom high rise apartments? Well again, this will vary from one community to the next. The older communities will fetch somewhere around $1600 per month. But if you want something super nice, it is going to be much more. You might want to contact a realtor if you prefer the private rentals. Their services are usually free and they may even give you a rebate back too. They can give you a better idea of what the cost may be. But brace yourself as it might approach over $3000. The word cheap and high rise usually don’t go together.
How to Choose a High Rise
If you choose an older high rise in Houston, you should realize that older rentals may require more maintenance. Also if you lease a unit on a higher floor, your utility bills may be more expensive compared to a unit on the lower floors. Most communities charge more rent for the penthouse and higher floors that offer awesome views. Be sure and speak with a leasing agent regarding any questions you may have regarding bills, deposits, etc. Also, many of the high rises for rent will also accept pets. Be sure and ask about breed restrictions, pet rent, and deposits.
Dominion at Post Oak; located in the Galleria area; was constructed in 2005 and is probably the newest high rise in the area. It boasts spectacular views of the entire city. Future tenants can expect astounding amenities like floor to ceiling sliding glass doors, stainless steel appliances, and island kitchens. The Cabochon at River Oaks might be the oldest high rise in Houston and is located in the prestigious River Oaks area. They were constructed in the late 60’s and 70’s. They have undergone renovation to appeal to the future tenant in Houston today! The Parklane High Rise might be the oldest in the Museum District. Enjoy 9 ft. ceilings and 7 ft. windows with astonishing views. They will come at a premium as high rises normally do.
How to Refine Your Apt Search
One of the first steps in any rental process should be to narrow down the neighborhoods that are possible options for you. Houston has its fair share of traffic and congestion. And if you find yourself stuck with long commute times; you won’t be a happy camper. A good rule of thumb is to narrow down your area first, and then picking out possible apartment options. Again, a good real estate agent can assist you along the way, as this city has more rentals to choose from than many cities around the country.
Always be prepared when you tour high rises or any property for rent. You should know that the busiest time for the rental market is in the summer season. Depending on the market, you might want to have all of the proper documentation on hand in case you want to apply. The larger communities will require that you fill out an application, place deposits, and will want to check your current employment status.
What You Need for Fast Approval
If you’re renting a private condo unit, the landlord might want specific references that will imply that you’re a reputable renter. Be prepared to put down your deposit to secure the unit in question. Be sure and ask how many vacancies are available. You don’t want to lose out because this was the last one available.
It’s always a good idea to have a backup just in case another renter swoops in and takes the rental away that you wanted.
