Yes, the pictures look very nice, but the apartments are very old. Most units have VERY old and ugly kitchens and bathrooms. Appliances are old and not the best. Carpet and flooring is bottom of the line, looks good until you actually start enduring some wear. Bathrooms are just ugly and old. Because of the old design the lighting in the apartments are non ideal, you can't walk in a room and flip on a switch in the one bedrooms, you gotta walk in, in the dark, trip over stuff to click your light on. The outlet placing (being an old place) is so inconvenient, can't vacuum one room gotta keep uplugging and moving. The steps to the upstiars are VERY steep, steps would never pass code today. Carrying groceries or anything up the steps in your hands is like taking a gamble with your life. The exterior door is so old looking and you can see where they've just slapped paint on it year after year. You think with the rent this place charges they could take 60 dollars one month and put a more modern, nicer door on the front of the place. Sharing an entrance is very unideal, at one time it smelled so bad (from I don't know what) I would hold my breath and gag on the way up the steps. I had to put a plug in down there. Another thing they don't tell you about an added expense is the laundry. They don't even provide the laundry equipment, they outsource it to a company that could care less about the service they are providing. Its is 1.25 a load, dosnt seem like a lot huh? Well figure if you do 4 loads of laundry a week this is (for washer and dryer cycle) 10 dollars a week, 40 dollars a month. That's another bil for crying out loud. The worst part is, the washer and dryers are about 20 years old and VERY inefficient. My clothes have to be rewashed all the time because they smell like dirty sunflower seeds everytime. Knowing what I know now, I would never suggest an apartment without an in unit washer and dryer. You can have pets, this is a perk but for a 150 dollar deposit as well as 40 dollars a month added to the rent, this is pretty standard but there is nothing in the apartment worth 150 dollars that the dog or cat could destroy. The maintenance staff is knowledgeable and trust worthty, the trash disposal is convenient. The imagine of a modern living community is false advertising, there is nothing modern about these apartments. As a consumer you must use caution, leasing agents are "sales people" pay close attention to charges and what you are signing.
