20 Things You Don’t Need to Own as a Renter

It’s true that living in an apartment may not afford you as much storage space as a house would. However, when you live in an apartment you don’t need to own nearly as many things. Tools to complete home repairs or do yard work aren’t necessary when you have a maintenance staff available to address any issues. If you do need a tool from time to time you can likely rent it from your local hardware store.

If you’re moving from a house to an apartment you may be able to downsize by donating items you’ll no longer need. Here are 20 things you should consider getting rid of before moving to a Rosetti property.

For Your Yard

Our properties are beautifully maintained by our wonderful maintenance team! Go for a walk, enjoy the pool, or relax on your balcony and enjoy the landscape without ever having to maintain it. During the winter, our team also works diligently to plow the snow, clear walkways, and treat for ice.

Thanks to our maintenance staff you’ll no longer need the following:

  • Lawnmower
  • Leaf blower
  • Edge trimmer
  • Gardening tools
  • Ladder
  • Chainsaw
  • Rake
  • Snowblower
  • Pressure washer

Heavy Maintenance and Painting Supplies

As a member of one of our communities you’re not responsible for any major repairs. If a problem arises, simply contact the leasing office, or submit a work order via the online portal. A member or our maintenance staff will bring along the following so you don’t need to own them:

  • Wrenches
  • Drain snakes
  • Paintbrushes
  • Caulking guns
  • Hand saw


Many of our apartments come equipped with all of the large appliances you need. If you’re moving from a house to our community, you won’t be needing to bring along items such as your fridge or oven. This makes moving that much easier!

  • Washer
  • Dryer
  • Refrigerator
  • Oven
  • Microwave
  • Air conditioning units

When you live at one of our Rosetti Properties you have more time to enjoy the things you love! Enjoy a maintenance free home in a beautiful community. Explore our apartments or give us a call today to schedule a tour. We can’t wait to show you around!
