Thank you for the nice review! Best, Sarah G., Princeton Properties


Top 5 reasons not to choose Princeton Place: Top 5 reasons not to choose Princeton Place: 1. much more expansive than others apartments nearby; 2. Noisy: workers mow the lawn every morning and trains are running day and early night; 3. Mean manager and staff, do not believe their fake smile; 4. You are stuck once you sign a contract. They charge your very high lease break fee (2-4 months) no matter how long you have lived there; 5. Vert slow maintenance.It took 3 weeks to repair a broken shelf on fridge door.

Generally, apartments are spacious and the property is well-maintained. The exercise room and other amenities are nice, and package pick-up is very convenient. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, and during the winter, snow removal is generally quite prompt. The complex is also located close to Union Station. Our biggest surprise has been that lease terms are more unfriendly than other places where we've lived. We experienced a rent increase of 5 - 7% after our first year, and were informed by management that such an increase is typical year over year. Our guess is their strategy is to increase as much as possible every year knowing that many tenants would prefer not to move out. Also unusual is that tenants don't have a good option of paying month-to-month rent after their first year, as the month-to-month rent is $200 (~15%) higher than on a lease. So the only option you have, if you don't want your rates to go up significantly after your first year, is to sign a very long (18 - 23 month) renewal lease. One other gripe with the complex is the messy trash situation. There are very few dumpsters (only 4 garbage and 1 recycling) for a property with ~200 apartments, so every week there is an overflow of garbage around the dumpsters in one part of the parking lot. They also don't offer any way of getting rid of larger items that don't fit in the dumpsters and often cause the overflow in the first place. Management in general is quite prompt with resolving most complaints, but some members of the staff are more cooperative and responsive to requests than others (Jordan is excellent!). Utilities can be a bit expensive, as all heating is electric baseboard based. Expect ~$150 - 200 / month in the winter months for a 2 bedroom apartment, and $100 / month in the summer if you use the dishwasher and in-unit laundry. Other than that, you can't go wrong here. Just be aware of what you are getting into from a rent situation over the long term.
