Tips for Clean and Safe Halls and Balconies

Living in an apartment means that you have to LIVE in the apartment: bring your items in and make the space a home. Often times, this carries over to an attempt to fill other spaces, such as you balcony or patio, and even sometimes your entry door or hallways. We have seen a lot of ways people have made their apartments a home here, and while we absolutely love the personalization and care that everyone puts into it, there are some points in which we have to ask them to hit the brakes. There are rules that allow us to keep the shared spaces clean, safe of clutter, or have other reasons why we enforce them. In an order to re-express these rules, and to enlighten non-residents of possible policies you may have living at other apartments (including Robert Hancock and Co. communities), we decided we would state some many rules for what can and can’t be done on a balcony or shared space.

  • No personal items can be stored in the hallways of our buildings (this is a common policy at almost all communities). This is to avoid any fire or tripping hazards when resident leave and enter the building, and avoids making those spaces look cluttered. You can, however, have a door mat or door decor.
  • While we do have cleaners that clean the common areas of the buildings once a week, that does not mean that trash and debris should be ignored. If you track in dirt, drop garbage, or something of the like, please deal with it the same way that you would in the apartment.
  • Balconies/patios are for patio furniture and plants only. Please make sure that these items are properly tethered down. No trash, bikes or other items are permitted to be stored on balconies.
  • Electric grills are permitted to be stored in the community or on a balcony with complete supervision while in use. Gas and charcoal grills are strictly prohibited (that is a common law at least in the state of Nebraska), and can’t be stored or used anywhere in the community, as they are a dangerous fire risk.
  • No flags/signs can be put up on the balconies/patios/windows of your apartment. All flags will be asked to be removed, as there is no way to avoid having signage or flags that are inappropriate in nature if we allow them in anyway.

These are simple rules and do not give information on the complete guidelines we have, or any other community has. If you ever have questions about what can or can’t be done with a shared space or a balcony/patio, please make sure to contact your property manager or consult your lease/community policies guidelines.

The Benefits of Renewing at Cedar Heights

Living at Cedar Heights is great! The apartments are cute and spacious, the maintenance staff is timely, helpful and friendly, and the community is upkept in a way that we can all be proud of. With that said, we know that everyone’s lease will come to an end eventually, and residents will need to make the decision to renew with us or give notice to move to another location. While we understand that it is unavoidable and that some residents may have no other choice than to move (moving to be closer to work, buying a house or important life changes that may move you somewhere else being a few), we wanted to take a moment to highlight some of the perks of renewing a lease with us! Especially with Summer coming up and a lot of movement typically taking place around that time, here are several reasons to stay with us, which include:

  • We offer flexible renewal terms, including a standard 12 month renewal option, or something more short term, such as a 6-11 month option. We even offer residents the ability to go month-to-month in their apartment. Typically if this option is afforded to residents at other communities, there is a $100-$200 month-to-month fee that is added onto your rent each month, but we only ask for an additional 5% month-to-month cost to be added onto your renewal rate!
  • With residents that renew for a full 12 month term and renew early enough (residents will have to refer to the 90 day renewal letter we send them ahead of their lease’s expiration for this date), they can be eligible for a renewal bonus, such as a free carpet cleaning, bathroom or kitchen cleaning, an upgrade to something in their apartment, such as light fixtures/faucet heads/etc., or a free rental of our clubhouse! Many residents here utilize these bonuses yearly to keep their apartment in tip-top shape, and all they had to do is sign a 12 month renewal lease with us!
  • Renewing with us gives you the peace of mind of avoiding a costly and often lengthy moving process. There are no costs for movers/boxes or need for extra cleaning to be done when you stick around! Plus, residents can utilize shorter renewal terms to help themselves plan a move, and if the move goes sideways, can always decide to renew for a longer term! Why start a move in the dead of summer/winter when you can utilize our renewal flexibility to your advantage?
  • If you do have issues or concerns in your apartment, it may be useful to use your renewal as an efficient way to voice those concerns. Of course, we always encourage an open dialogue with our residents and welcome all criticisms, even prior to renewal, but if there is something that needs done or a need that has not been met in the apartment during your time with us, let us know! We want to keep you around as a resident with us for as long as you are willing to have us, and will work towards making Cedar Heights a comfortable space to live.
  • In a final nod to flexibility, we do allow for lease takeovers or swaps of roommates ahead of renewals! Any new residents will need to be approved through our application process, but the rest of the process is pretty straight forward! If a resident wants to make a change to their roommates, or if they want someone new to take over their lease, all they have to do is call our office to get more information on how that process will work.

Our goal is to provide a comfortable community where resident’s needs are being met, with an emphasis on keeping the grounds and buildings as beautiful and maintained as possible. We hope that with anyone’s lease coming to an end, they inquire with our office on ways in which they can stay put! We want to make Cedar Heights a long term home, and that all starts with renewing!

Spring at Cedar – A Poem

Green all around,

Lots of wonderful grounds abound.

Bushes and grasses and trees,

Loads of space to roam free!

Sit with a neighbor in our shared spaces,

Start up the grill,

Feel the wind in our faces,

As one takes some time to chill.

Mowing and weed-eating each week,

To keep the community’s looks at their peak.

Tending to the mulch beds,

Fixing and patching up the sidewalks and lots,

So much can be said,

For the work that we put into these spots.

We are lucky for the residents that live with us,

For the community that we’re in.

The greenery and beauty is a definite plus,

but the people are where the good times begin!

Welcome in Spring 2021 with a New Home – Only two Left Until Summer!

Cedar Heights has been thrilled with the community we have throughout the winter; plenty of residents returning to live with us another year, and some new faces to round out our roster. We are always thankful to be the place that some call home, but like we always say, it has been a little sad to not have as many opportunities for new residents to swoop in and call home. With that said, we have made it a personal mission to try to get the word out as much as possible, and let everyone know if we ever have anything available. Knowing this, we checked what we had coming up, and we were a bit alarmed…

 

WE ONLY HAVE TWO MORE APARTMENTS LEFT FOR THE REST OF SPRING.

 

While this is a nice problem to have, it is a little sad that we will have so little to offer until Summer. Take a peak below to see more on these ONE-derful one bedroom apartments (see what we did there?).

  • 605 – One bedroom + loft, one bathroom, available between 4/23/2021 and 4/30/2021. 1240 sq. ft. and priced at $930/mo. Includes a balcony, fireplace, dishwasher, refrigerator, garbage disposal and stove/range. (Washer/dryer units are provided communally on each floor in the building)
  • 713 – One bedroom, one bathroom, available between 4/23/2021 and 4/30/2021. 690 sq. ft. and priced at $700/mo. Includes a patio walkout, fireplace, dishwasher, refrigerator, garbage disposal and stove/range. (Washer/dryer units are provided communally on each floor in the building)

We are sure that these spaces will not last long, so inquire today! Once they are gone it is very likely that we will not have anything else until June or July. Please inquire with our office by contacting us through the following means:

  1. Phone: (402)889-3560

Finally, if you are a current resident, but know someone that may be looking for an apartment such as the ones listed below, let them know! If they state that you referred them when they first reach out about the apartment, you will be eligible for a resident referral bonus of $100 (they have to mention you by name upon first inquiry in order for you to be eligible).

Usher in Spring with a new home in a beautiful, green community. Share that time with great neighbors, attentive staff, and plenty of space (both inside the apartment and out). We can’t wait to hear from you!

Get to Know our Neighborhood: Businesses Near Cedar Heights

Our apartment community offers a lot to be excited about! Great grounds and landscaping, wonderfully spacious apartments and great staff. If you are looking for a home where your needs are taken care of, and you can live comfortably, then Cedar Heights is a great choice! With this said, we know that as important as it is to have a wonderful home, it is often just as important to have a central location that has shops and locales nearby. We wracked our brains and thought of plenty of locations that make Cedar Heights a special space to live.

 

  • Restaurants: L Street is right down the way from us, and even near the intersection of L and 50th, you find plenty of quick bites such as Raising Canes, Jimmy Johns, Arbys and Taco Bell. Right here on 50th and Grover, we have a new restaurant and pub in Blondies Pub and Pizza, and there still more off of Saddle Creek and Center.
  • Stores: Again, on the corner of 50th and L is Family Fare, which is a mid size store with great prices and plenty of options. Hy-Vee and Walgreens are right off of 50th and Center, and on the flip side of Grover is a Walmart Grocer.
  • Parks: Several are nearby, with one right off of 50th and Grover. Aksarben also has several walking areas with great views and shops.
  • Gas Stations. MegaSaver is right off of 60th and Grover, as well as a Hy-Vee gas station that is on 50th and Center. These are just the nearest options.
  • Pubs/Bars: For those old enough to have an adult beverage, we have already mentioned Blondies Pub. There is also the Poop Deck that is right off of 60th and Grover.
  • Miscellaneous: Right down the street on the corner of 50th and Grover, there is a used car dealership, a tailor, a pet groomer and a convenience store. All useful, especially in a pinch.
  • Storage: Affordable Family Storage, as well as various storage sites are right down the street off of 50th and L. Especially useful for the apartment crowd with too many items.

Honestly, we are finding it difficult to not want to live here, especially if you are not into travelling long distances to shop. While we think that we are a wonderful place to live and stay, why not take a second to look at these places and frequent these businesses. We could all use a helping hand during these tough economic times.

Holidays done Safely: Christmas Edition

We are back with more activities for those looking to celebrate the holidays while staying safe and healthy! As we love the holidays over here at Cedar Heights, we would love to list a few ideas for events/activities to partake in during this Christmas season. Read on to get more details on wonderful things to do during December:

 

  • Omaha Community Playhouse is streaming performances of the classic A Christmas Carol. Although there is a cost to stream this program, it is an OCP staple, and a welcome sight for those looking for a bit of normalcy this year!
  • Christmas at Union Station: An annual event at Durham with décor galore! It appears that admissions will be reduced, and masks requirements enforced, but another welcome return, and a great chance to see great exhibits with a festive twist!
  • Light Shows Aplenty: Take a look at many places in Omaha, such as the Old Market or Midtown for amazing and breathtaking light displays! It is good enough to make you feel warm inside, even in the midst of the winter cold. Werner Park even has a paid light show that is a drive thru, and honestly, that is our kind of holiday display!
  • Window Displays: We just found out that Chocolat Abeille’s in the Old Market has a window display that boasts… a real Santa and Mrs. Claus?! I can’t believe we even get to read that! They are positioned in the window in a snow globe and even pose for photos! Go pay them a visit on 12/19/2020 from 2-4 for a special and safe display that really comes to life in front of you!

This is only a taste of all of the things that you can do in Omaha for the holidays this year! So many shows/orchestras that are streaming performances, lights/trees/décor all over, and ways to still eat and drink all of your holiday sweets and treats responsibly. Take a look HERE for more! We at Cedar Heights wish you well, ask that you do your best to stay safe and hope that everyone has a joyous and happy holidays.

Cedar Heights Food Drive and More!

Cedar Heights and the Robert Hancock and Co. Family are pleased to be collecting food donations for Food Bank for the Heartland! Typically, each year we do a food drive to benefit charitable organizations in our community, but this year, we are doing it with a twist! Each week, we have orchestrated a specific type of item that we would like to see donated. Our first week was for cereals, our second was for items used in making peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, and this week, we have been working to get items that used in making Spaghetti! We think that these items will easy hold on shelves, and will make for easy meals for anyone in need!

As well, Robert Hancock and Co. is making a money donation to the organization that will be delivered when all food items from our communities are collected and dropped off. We know that food and funding are valuable donations that may really make a difference. Just as we want to make a difference with our residents, we want to be a force of good in the lives of those around us in the greater Omaha area.

We are almost to 1000 total items donated between all of our communities! With the help of our wonderful residents, we are really hoping to total or surpass this number before the end of the week when our contest ends! Do you believe we can make it? If so, please consider making a donation! Our office in particular has donation boxes stationed just outside our leasing office doors.

Thanks to all that have been helping us this year. Cedar Heights, as well as all Robert Hancock and Co. communities are so fortunate to have amazing support from our incredible residents.

Finally, Cedar Heights does have a couple one bedroom apartments coming available! We have one that will be available in December and one that will be available in January. Our apartments are in short supply, so if you, or someone you know are looking for a wonderful home to move into this winter, please contact our office! A wonderful community with excellent staff, we know that we will make a great destination for someone looking for their new home.
