I had nothing but positive experiences with the staff and maintenance. They were helpful and always friendly. The apartment's rent simply no longer matched a reasonable market rate for the age of the unit and appliances within. In addition to the rent hike ($75 Y1 and $25-$50 Y2 had I stayed) there were many small problems that compiled due to old appliances. A disposal that rarely worked (repaired 3+ times) that I just gave up on, door lock that didn't actually lock - could only deadbolt, doors that won't shut, dryer that poorly dries, a controlled heater/air the latter of which broke, and hard floors that when we moved in were feet blackeningly filthy and we just never could get properly clean after constant attempts and various products. Going in to the end of May, all of June, and the start of July without a functioning A/C was simply the straw that broke the camel's back. Had I not decided to leave midway through I would have certainly sought re-compensation as going through some of the hottest months of the summer without air is very unacceptable.
In addition to the units the lots/security needs to be modernized. Either assigned parking or cameras overseeing the lots. In addition to generally being unsafe you have no claims to car damages without either. My car (as someone takes pride in their car I give it a walk around each arrival) suffered 3 minor scratches, 2 significant dents, and someone literally reversing and crushing in my rear light and scraping the rear panel. This is hundreds worth of damages that I have no claim against, but know they occurred in the lot.
The lack of amenities, rent hiking, and growing list of problems (that I feel weren't going to be remedied not due to maintenance, but because the appliances were simply too old to be salavaged) ultimately brought me to move out. I simply wasn't getting my money worth. By moving to a new apartment complex I've been able to shed my gas bill, consolidate my water bill, gain more space and a unit more than a decade newer, and I'm paying only $50 more.
I wish them all the best and hope future renters have an improved experience.
