Finding a new place to live is exciting, but when you have a family in town, the search takes on a whole new level of importance. No longer are you just looking for a roof over your head – you need a space that feels like home, caters to everyone's needs, and fosters a sense of community.

Here at Northtowne Properties, we understand the unique challenges families face in the rental market. That's why we offer a variety of modern, luxurious rental units designed with families in mind. But finding the perfect family-friendly rental goes beyond just the apartment itself. Let's explore some key factors to consider:

Space and Functionality:

  • Size Matters: Growing families need room to breathe. Look for apartments with enough bedrooms for everyone to have their own space, as well as spacious living areas where the family can gather and unwind.
  • Smart Layouts: Open-concept layouts can be great for families, promoting togetherness while still allowing for designated activity areas. Look for well-designed kitchens with ample storage for groceries and meal prep.
  • Storage Solutions: Let's face it, families accumulate stuff! Consider units with built-in storage solutions or ample closet space to keep toys, games, and seasonal items organized.

Amenities that Make a Difference:

  • In-Suite Laundry: Doing laundry is an inevitable part of family life. Having in-suite laundry facilities saves you time and the hassle of lugging laundry baskets to and from a shared space.
  • Pet-Friendly Communities: Many families consider pets to be part of the family. Look for rentals that allow furry friends, and consider the additional benefits Northtowne Properties offers, like private dog parks.
  • Safe and Playful Outdoor Spaces: Green spaces are a must for families. Look for properties with on-site playgrounds, parks nearby, or even backyards (like some of our Bellemore units) for kids to run and play.

Location, Location, Location:

  • Proximity to Schools: If you have school-aged children, finding a rental close to their school can significantly improve your mornings and reduce commutes.
  • Family-Friendly Neighborhoods: Look for neighborhoods known for their strong sense of community, parks, and amenities like libraries and community centers. Safety is paramount, so research crime rates and the overall feel of the area.
  • Convenience is Key: Living near grocery stores, pharmacies, and other essential services can make your life easier. Look for rentals situated in areas with easy access to public transportation as well, for those days you don't feel like driving.

Beyond the Apartment:

  • Management Matters: Choose a property management company that prioritizes tenants' needs. Northtowne Properties prides itself on exceptional service, with an in-house maintenance team and dedicated property managers who are always available to address your concerns.
  • A Sense of Community: Look for a rental property that fosters a sense of community. Northtowne Properties strives to create a welcoming environment where families can connect and build lasting friendships.

Finding the perfect family-friendly rental takes time and effort, but with careful consideration and the right resources, you can discover a place that feels like home for everyone. Northtowne Properties offers a variety of modern, well-maintained units in desirable locations throughout Winnipeg.
