No one returned my calls. Not a good way to demonstrate professionalism or encourage business.
My wife and I have lived here for the past 4 years. Things have really taken a turn for the worse since Mission Rock took over the building. The property manager often comes across as disinterested, rude and dismissive. You are notified of impending work the night before via email and expected to prepare immediately (i.e. moving items off your porch, out of the bathroom area, moving your car, etc.), so tough luck if you travel for work and aren't home to meet their demands. While they expect you to jump the moment they send you an email, the property manager has no interest in addressing residents concerns. Even after sending a picture of rodent feces on our balcony we were told we would get an email response. That was over 3 weeks ago.
In terms of finances and overall value, in addition to an average 5% year over year rent increase, you can also expect additional monthly fees that used to be included in the rent (water, sewer, trash and communal electricity) to the tune of another 5% of total rent costs. Also, the heat is electric, so factor that into your price comparison among comparable units. We spent an average of over $350 per month to heat a 2-bedroom apartment during the winter months. When all costs are considered, it is not price competitive with other units in the area that have gas heat and do not charge any additional fees on top of the rent. You are not allowed to have a grill on your balcony, so there used to be two communal grills by the pool. There was only one for the entire complex for the past summer. If you enjoy grilling during the summer, youll have to get used to waiting in line and spending more time waiting than cooking.
If I could offer potential residents any advice, it would be to just stay away. There are plenty of options in the area, and Middletown Ridge is easily among the worst.
These apartments are old the rent sky rockets if you move in during the warm months. The ceiling looks like they have previously been water damaged and never actually fully fixed just plastered and painted over. The closets are not oversized how they describe it they are normal closets. Its pretty spacious overall but everything is old including the appliances. The central ac pulls extreme energy and its highly inefficient due to the window cracks and the windows not being ceased properly. In the winter months you will have heater on high and the house will still be extremely cold. Even when you have the central ac off it seems as if they dont measure the amount of electricity properly. The insulation sucks tremendously. Overall it is fairly quiet. They are pet friendly thats a plus. They claim to have wood floor but some of the apartments are all rug including the dinning room, who puts rug on a dinning room. Over all I would recommend for short term living.
Review of Middletown Ridge,
I have been a resident for a few years and would recommend living here. The office personnel are friendly and maintenance is professional and complete work orders in quickly. As with any apartment complex things will go wrong. But the Office and Maintenance handle the problems as they happen.
