Best Rental Finds in Houston TX: Amenity-Rich Communities That Won’t Break the Bank

Home to some of the most dramatic ethnic, cultural and physical transformations of this decade, Houston — and its greater metropolitan area — is the place where people dream big and dreams come true. As the fourth largest city by population in the U.S., Houston shows its diversity in more than one way: a world-class gastronomic mix, arts and culture from around the world and a year-round variety of sports. With many young professionals starting out their career and adult life in this youthful city of opportunities, Houston’s housing market has experienced a construction frenzy in recent years and it continues to be in-demand.

Yet, thanks to a fairly moderate rent growth forecast, you can find plenty of great apartment communities in Houston at below average prices. Whether you need a budget-friendly studio or a two-bedroom apartment to share with a roommate, we’ve selected some fantastic apartments that offer the most bang for your buck and are available right now:

Turtle Pointe in Mid West Houston (Check Availability)

Monthly rent for a studio: $655 (compare to $731 average price for studios for rent in Houston TX)

Turtle Pointe 8162 Richmond Avenue Houston TX

One of the advantages of living at Turtle Point is the multitude of amenities it spoils its residents with: you don’t have to walk far to enjoy one of the three swimming pools, work out in the 24-hour fitness center, relax in the heated spa, play volleyball or other sports in the sport court, or simply enjoy a walk to the Galleria and the Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park in the uptown district of Houston. The studios here boast large patios or balconies, fully equipped kitchens and large closets.

The Heights at 2121 in Timbergrove (Check Availability)

Monthly rent for a one-bedroom: $769 (compare to $903 average price for one-bedroom apartments for rent in Houston TX)

The Heights at 2121 2100 Tannehill Dr. Houston TX

Living at The Heights at 2121, within  a few minutes’ drive from the highway, can make everyday commute a breeze. This is not only a pet-friendly apartment community, but it promises to make your and your pet’s stay comfortable and convenient: saltwater swimming pools, sports courts, controlled access and, of course, a dog park. The units have rare features like built-in bookshelves, hardwood floors or new carpeting, large closets and some even dry bars.

Metro 5514 Cityside in Greater Ost-South Union (Check Availability)

Monthly rent for a two-bedroom: $1,105 (compare to $1,220 average price for two-bedroom apartments for rent in Houston TX)

Metro 5514 Cityside 5514 Griggs Road Houston TX

Why not rent a two-bedroom apartment at Metro 5541 City side and get involved in a community project to begin in 2019 for a decade-long Centennial Celebration of the Old Spanish Trail — volunteer to revitalize, restore, and enhance the original setting of the roadway. Beside its great location, this community offers apartments featuring modern quality finishes, are cable ready, have spacious closets, ceiling fans, efficient appliances and you-controlled air conditioning.

City Terrace in Memorial (Check Availability)

Monthly rent for a three-bedroom: $1,289 (compare to $1,334 average price for three-bedroom apartments for rent in Houston TX)

City Terrace 1015 Country Place Drive Houston TX

The urban-chic City Terrace is positioned in the well-known Energy Corridor, an exciting commercial and business district, home to many international energy companies. The rental property offers swimming pools, covered parking spaces, sundecks and laundry facilities, and it includes a dog park (pets are more than welcome here).
