Swamp Rentals FAQs

How inclusive are all inclusive apartments in Gainesville, FL? Do they have free electric and other utilities?

Gainesville’s “all inclusive” or “rent by the bedroom” apartments tend to include a utility cap for electric usage. If it were free, then college students could run their air conditioners with the windows open all day & all night! An all inclusive or all included apartment will also usually cover water, sewer and trash removal in addition to the usual pest control and maintenance. One other benefit of all inclusive apartments is that they usually provide furniture. Here’s a trick… if you have your own bedroom furniture but want a furnished common area, just let the apartment know before you sign your lease. From what Swamp Rentals hears, apartments will be very accommodating when it comes to removing furniture from one of the bedrooms… especially if that means that you’ll be signing a lease with them!
