Picking The Best Apartment Style For You!

When looking for an apartment community to call home, what appeals to you? Do you like the tall high-rise style apartment communities with the sensational views? Or maybe you are not into the high-rise but want a similar feel and lean more towards a mid-rise.… Perhaps you take a more traditional approach and go with a garden style apartment home. Don’t know what you want? That’s OK too! The great thing about Houston and other large cities is that you can easily find all three styles within blocks of each other!

Let’s go over the top 3 apartment types you will find in major cities. I’ll even give you some great options for Camden communities located in Houston, TX!

Garden-Style Communities– This apartment style is extremely common and probably what you are used to seeing as you drive down neighborhood streets. These types of structures:
• Normally are no more than 3 stories high
• Always are surrounded by large trees and lavish landscaping.
• Typically offer a fewer number of floor plan types, but may include 1-3 bedroom apartment homes and even some town homes!
• May not offer all of the luxuries that high-rise living brings
• Are often the most affordable option
• Most likely offers a wider variety of parking options: attached or detached garages, carport spaces, parking garages, or several open spaces throughout the community.
