Alliance is in our number one spot on this list for good reason – they’re dedicated to finding places that match their residents’ lifestyles and budget, and they’re also dedicated to making sure that their tenants get consistently awesome customer service and speedy maintenance on their homes.

Kestrel Development rolls in at number three on our list, boasting brand new facilities, close proximity to campus, the grocery store, the mall, and paid utilities. Among some of the rest of their amenities in each unit are washers and dryers, a dishwasher, garbage disposal, self-cleaning ovens, built-in microwaves, and full-size refrigerators.

Welcome Home (what a great name, right?) has a motto that they live up to, judging from their ratings: “See a need, fill a need.” By providing awesome service for their tenants, they’ve earned a reputation for being really great landlords. They have tons of reasonably priced rentals close to campus, so you can really get choosy about the kind of place in which you see yourself living.

Our number 5 top rated landlord is Team Idaho, another company that’s super dedicated to serving their tenants and making sure that they have excellent customer service any time they need help. They offer a wide variety of rental properties in the Moscow area, so whether you’re looking to live close to campus and walk to your classes every day or you’re hoping to live a little further out of town and have a quieter semester, you’ll be able to find an affordable, quality place to live. Every place offers slightly different amenities, but some highlights include parking, updated appliances, and flexible pet policies.
Apartment Rentals comes in at our number six spot by offering multiple living options within walking distance of the university. They pride themselves on offering “comfortable, affordable apartment and house rentals”, and students definitely seem to agree. Many of these housing options include amenities like free off-street parking, cable and internet, tons of closet space, and on-site laundry facilities. Also, bonus – they offer something called a Rent Scholarship, which is exactly like it sounds – it’s possible to apply to get some or all of your rent paid for.
Next on our list is The Grove at Moscow, which is a student community that makes you feel like you’re basically living in a resort by offering a ridiculous amount of amenities. Residents have access to a resort-style pool, a 24-hour fitness center, indoor tanning, basketball courts, a game room, high-speed internet, and sand volleyball courts, among a ton of other stuff. Units come fully furnished and feature individual leases which protects you in the event that your deadbeat roommate decides to leave in the middle of the semester without finding a subleaser, walk-in closets, washers and dryers in each apartment, and private bathrooms (♪♫priiiiivacyyyyyyy♫♪).
Coming in at number eight on our list are McCoy Apartments, which are all located within six blocks of campus. Each unit comes with some really great features such as updated kitchen appliances, newly refinished bathrooms, dishwashers, garbage disposals, and on-site laundry facilities.
