Posted

I have to find an apartment in 2 weeks. I plan on going on apartment tours this Saturday, 04/26. BIG PROBLEM.....I am moving to Detroit and don't know of the apartments in the area.

Please let me know if you know of any great apartment complexes. I am looking for a 2 bedroom place.

If you are living in a great apartment complex in a nice area please share the info.

Thanks

are you trying to move closer to school or work? Detroit is big; what area do you need to be closer to?

Do you mean the Detoit area? Plymouth, Livonia are great places to start looking.

Thanks for your responses. I am looking for apartments in the Oakland and Macomb county area. I will be working at Harper but I don't want to live around that area. Anything 20-30 minutes away from there would be really good.

If you have any great apartment names please let me know.

Thanks

A friend of mine lived here and it wasn't bad. You can have a dog too(don't know if that is of importence or not). Depending on what you are looking to spend there are lots of houses for rent in the Macomb/Oakland county areas as well that are pretty close to rent for some apartments. If you are looking to save a little money, I'd lean towards southern Macomb county and if you don't mind spending a bit more look at Northern Macomb and Oakland, they are a little nicer and the price reflects it. Depending on your shift, if you'll be traveling during rush hour via I-94, 696 or I-75 I'd tack an extra 30 minutes to your commute just to be safe because of traffic(especially with construction that seems to be never ending!). Good luck! The DMC is nice(even though I work for Beaumont), my dad was treated there(at Karmanos) and we liked it.

What amenities are you looking for? Price range? Do you have a family? Do you want to live near night-life? Do you need to have a w/d in your apartment? Do you want a pool? There are so many apartments to choose from!! :)

Check out any of the Village Green apartments - http://www.villagegreen.com/communities/index.cfm/fuseaction/searchCommunities/contentID/3/navID/2/communityID/.htm - The management company has apartments all over the metro-Detroit area. The apartments in Troy off of John R are near I-75. The townhomes in Ferndale are right near I-696. The apartments in Royal Oak are also near I-75.

Thanks everyone for your response.

To answer logique question, I am looking for an apartment that looks good from the outside as well as inside. I don't want to go above $900 a month. I don't have a family and I want to leave near shopping, restaurants. A pool, no pool doesn't matter.I would like a washer and dryer in the unit.

Any ideas? Does anyone know anything about the Oaks at Hampton apartments?

I looked up the village green apartments, they were really great but many of the 2 bedrooms apartments were not available.

If those are in Rochester, then I have seen them (years ago) and they were pretty nice (we lived at Essex at Hampton, which were cheaper). Rochester is a really great town to live in.

I am partial to the Royal Oak area if you are young :)

Sterling Apartments in Sterling Heights are nice. They are off M-59 at Dequindre/Utica Road. W/D in unit, pool, looks nice in and out :)

There are a few other apartments off Utica Rd that are nice too if you like that area...

Don't know where you plan on working, but I live in Troy, which is near Royal Oak or Ferndale. There are some nice apartments in that area. Royal oak and Ferndale are popular areas with the young crowd. I work in Downtown detroit and it takes me maybe 20minutes to get to work.

THIS PLACE LOOKS PRETTY NICE, IS IT NEAR HENRY FORD HOSPITAL? I WILL BE RELOCATING MYSELF FROM OUT OF STATE, AND NEED AN APT NOT TOO FAR FROM DETROIT.

I did a mapquest from there to Henry Ford and it says about 25 minutes, 20.6 miles away from it. However the way they suggested seems to take you out and around, so it may be a little bit quicker than that.

You might want to try Madison Heights or Clawson. I lived in one that is now owned by Amber Apartments and it was nice and pretty reasonable.

Hey I live in Troy and drive to downtown detroit, I work at Henry Ford, its about 20minutes to get there.

It's so nice of all of you to help this person find an apartment. Lots of great responses here.

Another tidbit, sometimes apartment complexes will have deals where they will cover heat or water. Look for deals. My first apartment covered the water, my rent was 435 bucks and it was a one bedroom apt and very nice.
