Looking for cheap apartments for rent in Grapevine is an interesting undertaking. After all, what is cheap for one person may not be cheap for another, and why just Grapevine? If one lives in the North Fort Worth area, then living in Grapevine is more or less the same as living in Watauga or Haltom City, North Richland Hills or Saginaw. Why limit your search to just Grapevine when there is a huge metro area to choose from?
Expand your search parameters, and you expand your chances of finding what you want and need.
For that matter, what is an apartment? Again, what one person thinks of as an apartment, another person may have never considered. There are studios for rent and one-bedrooms, grandma cottages and basement apartments. The trend nowadays, with money being tight, is to just rent one room in a common house, sharing duties and amenities with other renters. Heck, there was an article the other day about an apartment complex made entirely out of shipping containers, and another article about some fellow who rented a cheap office (the work from home type) because it was less-expensive than an apartment, and he just lived in the office at nights. So you see, even the word “apartment” is open for interpretation. Or how about a garage? Looking for a garage for rent might be the solution as well.
So expand your search parameters. Start looking in Denton, Corinth, Lewisville, and Hickory Creek. Don’t be shy about looking in Northlake, Argyle, Corral City, and Ponder. Spin by Haslet, say hello to Flower Mound, and give Roanoke a try. Who knows, right? They are all reasonably close to the rest of the DFW Metro area, so it’s six of one, half-dozen of the other.
Keep expanding your search parameters. Look at studios. Look at one-bedrooms, and townhouses, and condos, grandma cottages, and even shipping containers. Trailers? Mobiles? Heck, go look at a yurt if there are any on the market. One man’s castle is another man’s garbage dump . . . or is it the other way around?
Make a list of your non-negotiable needs. Bathroom? Number of square feet? Proximity to what? Public transportation nearby? Cost? What is it that drives your search, and what is it that you can’t live without? Once you know these things you can make your search a much smaller one.
The same is true for those looking for a cheap office, or cheap warehouse, or cheap artist suite. Determine what it is you can’t live without, expand the area you can work in, and then let the search begin. The Alliance commercial real estate area, or for that matter all of North Fort Worth, is a mammoth area, and chances are good that what you seek is available if you are thorough in your search.
