Grand Rapids Rental Properties


Grand Rapids Rental Homes and Condos

I have been encountering alot more inquiries for rental homes and condos in the last year, specifically inquiries for downtown Grand Rapids Condo rentals. It’s not too surprising as there are some very sharp condo developments downtown and the area is alive with energy with so many attractions, great restaurants, Art Museums, coffee shops and nightlife It’s a great place to live!

Plaza Towers CondosIf you work downtown or go to school downtown and prefer to rent a condo instead of owning a condo, there are several units that are currently leasing. Prices vary but typically, a 2 bedroom condo will not rent for less than $1000 per month. That will include all of the amenities with the seller usually paying the association fees. If you have any pets, there may be restrictions. Some downtown condos like the Plaza Towers will allow cats only, no dogs allowed. Other condos may allow dogs but will have either a breed or weight restriction.

There are some condos that are in the Grand Rapids Renaissance Zone, where City and State Income Taxes Grand Rapids Renaissance Zoneand Property Taxes are waived until 2012. As a tenant you will be eligible to recieve these benefits. I know of several rental opportunities at the moment in Tax Free zones. If you live in an Extended Renaissance Zone and are eligible, the tax free benefits last until 2017.  These are gorgeous, executive condos, some of them with over 1500 sq/ft of living space which are being rented for $2000/mo+. Some come fully furnished as well.

Some condos offer parking and some don’t, it depends on which one you are interested in. Information on the various downtown Parking Ramps and rates can be found here.

Hope this helps. You can preview the available Grand Rapids Rental Homes and condos in the rental section on my website. Keep in mind that not all of the downtown rentals are listed, but you can contact me directly and tell me what you are looking for and I will do my best to help you find it. There is a new Plaza Condo rental that I just heard about last night. It’s a 2 beds/2 baths, 27th floor condo with over 1400 sq/ft of living space and will be offered for $2000/mo. It comes with 2 parking spaces and believe me when I tell you that it is a stunning condo overlooking the river.
