A low-rise is a building which is only a few stories tall. They typically offer amenities similar to a high-rise with greatly reduced prices, but remember all most all rent asking prices are negotiable and you should haggle it down. If you go into a pawn or thrift shop their prices are suggestions. Think an item is worth less? Try seeing if you can make a deal.

1Advantages – Believe it or not most cities have building height requirements, so your typical low-rise is usually pretty centrally located. Providing tenants with great access public transportation and shopping. At the very least these buildings usually have built-in laundromats. Some will even go as far as to build gyms and theater rooms.

2Problems – Don’t assume parking is included because it’s a large building. If you’re in an older district or an area of town where land values are sky-high odds are they only offer street parking. You don’t always need a car in those types of places, but you always have to keep that in mind while you’re looking. Oh yea, those amenities? Not always included in the asking price. Some times the built-in laundry room is coin operated. Which is a real bummer considering they could just charge a little bit more for rent to cover that.
