While renting a utilities included apartment can sound very appealing to a renter on a budget, there are also several disadvantages to consider. Traditionally it is the older apartment communities that offer the convenience of an all bills paid service. They also have become very scarce and therefore limited in inventory. Making it is very difficult to locate availability in one based on a time sensitive move in date.
In major metropolitan areas like San Antonio, these types of properties are very rare. Often times they are also not advertised. If you are looking for an all bills paid apartment, working with an experienced apartment finder at Apartments Now who is familiar with the apartment inventory in the area is your best option.
