Whether you’re new to the city or relocating within Orlando, we’re excited to show you apartments for rent in Orlando & help you find the best apartment for you. Orlando is a large city with tons of neighborhoods, attractions, and rental options – it can feel intimidating and overwhelming to find rental apartments. Lucky for you, we’ve created a list of the top 5 things to consider when looking at apartment rentals in Orlando!
Your Monthly Budget For Rent
The first place to start when apartment hunting is with your budget. Apartment rentals in Orlando vary widely in pricing, so it’s extremely important to feel comfortable with your budget so you can establish your expectations for what amenities and apartment features feel reasonable within your budget. Our filters allow you to narrow down what apartments are available for rent in Orlando specifically in your budget – whether you’re looking for an apartment under $1,500/month or a room under $800/month.
Keep in mind that most apartment rentals in Orlando are not all-inclusive, meaning in addition to the monthly rent, you’ll be paying extra expenses like electricity, cable, internet, pest control, etc. Be sure to work utilities and other monthly apartment-related expenses into your budget!
Renting Your Preferred Floor Plan
Apartments for rent in Orlando offer just about any floor plan a renter could need. From 1 bedrooms to 3 bedrooms to 4+bedrooms, Orlando’s got you covered for whatever floor plan you need. Consider factors such as if you’ll be living with family or friends or if you plan to have roommates when selecting the best floor plan for you.
Rent in Your Preferred Neighborhood
Simply put, Orlando is ginormous! There are tons of different neighborhoods and areas to explore. We recommend starting with our Orlando neighborhoods page where we detail neighborhood information like the best shopping and dining, best public schools, typical traffic patterns, and much more. From smaller neighborhoods with lots to do desired by young professionals like Baldwin Park to well-known neighborhoods with world-class entertainment like Universal Studios in Dr. Phillips - there’s something for everyone!

Your Desired Community Amenities
Now that you’ve got your budget, floor plan, and neighborhood nailed down – it’s time to consider what community amenities are most important to you in your apartment rental in Orlando. Apartments for rent in Orlando offer tons of amenities, so reflect on which amenities you actually use the most and find to be the most necessary in your future apartment.
Search for amenities such as apartments with a fitness center to crush your workout goals or apartments with pools to spend your weekends enjoying Florida’s weather. Don’t forget to search for pet-friendly apartments if you have furry friends to bring along!
Your Desired Rental Features
Finally, consider what features you’re looking for in your next apartment home. Apartment rentals in Orlando range from budget-friendly apartments with more standard features to newly built, luxurious apartment communities.
