There is so many different things that come with apartment living. In fact, we thought of 9 specific reasons that showcase what benefits it will bring you!

1. Easy Access to a Pool and Jacuzzi 

Chico can get really hot in the summer and rather cold in the winter too. Swimming in the huge pool at One Mile or taking a dip in Bear Hole isn’t for everyone. Chico apartment living allows you to always have access to a swimming pool and a Jacuzzi, and you don’t even have to keep up with the maintenance – or worry about fish!

2. Fun Events Right Outside Your Front Door

Whether you’re a social butterfly who likes to meet new people or a wallflower that prefers to stay that way, Chico apartment living helps you get social. Whether it’s movie night, a Saturday morning breakfast, or a Dance Revolution tournament, you can get to know your neighbors. And if you’ve been cornered by someone who is talking your ear off about the latest Star Wars convention, you can make a quick getaway back to your apartment. 

Even though many events have been cancelled due to COVID, our Caring Community Teams are coming up with creative ways to engage their residents in a safe capacity, like Lawn Bingo!

3. Fitness Center at Your Fingertips. 

Gym memberships can be expensive and sometimes it's hard to find the motivation to go. Add in the intermittent closings and added restrictions because of COVID and you may just give up on it completely. 

Apartment living gives you access to a fitness center reserved just for residents, at no extra cost. It can also include other recreational opportunities like tennis, volleyball, or basketball courts. Say good-bye to your couch potato ways!

4. Safety in Numbers

Apartment living means that you’re surrounded by a lot of other people. Odds are that a burglar is less likely to break in when there are a lot of people around. Plus, you start to recognize other residents, their visitors, and cars so if anyone looks out of place you can take action if needed. Most apartment complexes are also well lit so you aren’t walking alone in the dark and some even have security guards.

5. Renting has Financial Benefits

Don’t let anyone look down on you for apartment living because you are renting. It has its benefits. You don’t have to worry about maintenance or repair costs or some utility costs. You also don’t have to pay real estate taxes, worry about a big down payment, and you usually have a fixed rent amount for the span of your lease.

6. The On-Site Manager is Your Friend

When you live in an apartment you have access to an on-site manager that is there to be your ally when you need it. The manager can help you with scheduling maintenance, questions about your lease, and is your contact when there is an emergency.

7. You Don’t Have to be Jack of All Trades

When you’re part of an apartment community and you have something in your home that isn’t functioning properly, the maintenance is taken care of for you. This means that you don’t have to be a handyman (or woman!). So when your garbage disposal isn’t working, your toilet is backed up, or you need your air filter changed, your apartment maintenance will do it for you. All it takes is for you to put in a request online or over the phone with your apartment manager.

8. A Variety of Locations to Choose From

Chico apartment living gives you multiple locations to choose from, depending on your personal preferences. If you’re a runner and want to be close to the park, go to Butte College and want to be close to a bus stop, or want to be within walking distance of a shopping center, Hignell Rentals can find an apartment for you.

9. A Caring Community.

Probably the best reason that Chico apartment living is good for you is the community you become a part of. When you’re a part of a Hignell Rentals apartment, you’ll get to know our friendly staff, be informed about what’s happening in the Chico community, and will just have a more enjoyable experience.

Even in the midst of COVID, Chico apartment living’s Caring Community Teams are doing what they can to show their residents they care by delivering free ice cream and hot dogs! 

Hopefully these reasons have helped you realize what an enjoyable time you can have when in Chico apartments. At Hignell Rentals we have 11 different complexes that are made to make your home life easier.
