Luxury Rentals_copy

Moving to a new city can be a bit of a challenge. Not only do you have to close up shop at your last home, but moving can sometimes require jumping headlong into an unfamiliar city.  The first questions that usually cross people’s minds are: Where am I going to live? How do I know where I can find a quality lifestyle that I can afford?  For many, the answer is apartment living.

There is a rental unit or condominium home for every lifestyle in the Milwaukee area. There are modern, state-of-the-art facilities that offer maid service, exercise rooms, concierge service – even in-house convenience stores – among other amenities. Stately homes, duplexes and “mother-in-law” apartments are available for rent in residential neighborhoods of Milwaukee and its suburbs.  

Luxury Apartments

In recent years there has been an explosion in the development of luxury apartments to meet the needs of urban professionals and retirees who prefer renting over home ownership. These units can be found throughout the metropolitan area and feature large floor plans (typically 1,000 to 3,000 square feet). They are often equipped with high-end appliances, including microwaves, stoves, dishwashers, refrigerators and washers and dryers. They offer dens, cathedral ceilings and enclosed parking.

Depending on the property, these apartments offer dens, cathedral ceilings and enclosed parking. Health club facilities and clubrooms are popular amenities, and some apartment properties have on-site convenience stores, in-house movie theaters and guest suites. Many properties are carefully designed and tastefully landscaped to blend into their natural settings using environmentally sensitive designs to minimize their impact on the surroundings.
