For those who are looking for a rental, this site will be very helpful! Our List of Available Rentals includes listings that landlords have identified are available or will soon be available. This is updated every week day. If you don’t find anything on there that will meet your needs, please check out the Landlords and Apartment Complexes pages. Here you will find the contact information of local apartment complexes and landlords that may have something coming available but have not notified Positively Pella at this time.

A few other good places to look are:

  • (the classified section often has rentals that may or may not be posted on Positively Pella’s web page).
  • (a statewide database of apartment complexes, many income-restricted options)
