If you and your family need a rental but are over apartment living, this week’s Odessa home is a perfect option.
Beautiful tile flooring in the main areas of the home makes cleaning up after kids and pets a breeze since mud and dirt can mop up easily. And just look at all that light in the living room and kitchen!
Two bathrooms means streamlined primping for all in the mornings – after everyone wakes up in their generously sized bedrooms. And as you can see, the attention to detail in regards to the finishes extends to the bathrooms as well.
The galley kitchen has granite countertops, a beautiful backsplash, and stainless steel appliances. You also have a washer and dryer connection in the kitchen, and a cute curtain could hide all that away and provide you the opportunity to bring in even more personality.
And the backyard is huge and has a nice privacy fence, which means kids and pets can play safely. It’s currently a blank slate with a ton of room, so you could easily have a garden and a swing set. You definitely can’t get that in an apartment.
This rental goes for $1,650, with a $1,650 deposit. According to ApartmentList.com’s September rent report, median rents for Odessa apartments are $900 for a one bedroom and $1,110 for a two-bedroom. This makes this three-bedroom rental home (with that big backyard) a bargain.
Odessa rental rates have increased by more than 1.6 percent since August, and by 8.6 percent since this time last year. It’s the ninth straight month of rental increases. Odessa’s year-over-year rental rate increase is above both the state average of 1.5 percent and the national average of 3 percent.
