Looks nice until you move in and everything starts breaking. Maintenance takes forever and leaves a mess everywhere. When I moved in they did not have my room ready, nor were any of the rooms cleaned. They also tried to raise my price from what was agreed upon the day I moved in, and when I tried to explain it wasn't the right price so I would not sign until I talked to a manager, the guy flipped out and yelled at me, some of his associates had to take him away. Not a reassuring experience for my first day there. My roommates also had bad experiences with the move-in guy.

Thank you for your reply about our East Cherry Flats. I would of wished to speak to you sooner about these issues, prior to you writing this review. Please keep in mind, pre-leasing does not guarantee you a rental price, as rental prices are not guaranteed until lease signing date. I would like to discuss with you who your leasing agent was that moved you in, as I am pretty confident he is no longer with us. Maintenance work orders should be handled within 3 days of receiving the work orders, so if they are not being handled accordingly, please definitely speak with your Property Manager, Jennifer. If you still have items broken, please contact us as well. Not the kind of experience we are wanting to have at our East Cherry Flats!


I lived here for 2 years. If you are okay living with roommates that you don't know this is a good place to live. My first year they didn't have enough renters and I lived alone like a king. The interior is pretty fancy, the kitchen area is large and the living room is spacious to have guests. In my second year I experienced all the 'benefits' of having roommates. Dishes are routinely left uncleaned, floors dirty, people stay up late when you want to sleep, etc, etc. If you can guarantee that your roommates behavior is to your liking or if nothing of the above bothers you then go ahead, this is a cool place to live in.
Utilities are included which is a plus, you only have to worry about one lump sum for rent and that's all.
The corridors are always clean and smell nicely in the morning due to daily maintenance so that's nice. The place has a fancy feel to it all over.
In the years I lived here they changed 3 building managers not sure what the reason for it. My maintenance tickets would usually be closed fast in a day or two, so they are quite responsive to most requests. I have to warn you they have a problem with fire alarms though. In the first year the fire alarms would go off almost every other week. And when it goes off in a neighboring room which is vacant that is not fun. One time the fire alarm went off in my room and I made tickets for it 2-ce and after the second repair it still would go off for no reason randomly. So I had to manually remove it and live without it -- just got frustrated of them not being able to fix it.
With that said and my frustration about fire alarms vented, I'll still give this place 4 stars.

Thank you and we have definitely enjoyed having you as a resident at the East Cherry Flats fro the past 2 years, we wish you the best in your future!


When I first moved in I was told I wasn't able to stay in my own assigned room. I had to stay in a completely different unit down the hall even though they knew a week in advance I was coming and even called to confirm it. I was told I couldn't move in because they needed to paint and clean the room. I waited a full day in a half until I was finally able to even step foot in my actual room. Needless to say when I did, nothing had been cleaned. There were food stains in the freezer, food all over the microwave walls, dishes had food stuck to them, the refrigerator shelves looked frosted over with food still inside of it. My family and I cleaned every dish, including all the shelves from the refrigerator, literally everything. Then the next day when one of my roommates was going to move in they had her put her stuff in a different room because her's hadn't been cleaned either. I was not happy, and I will forever be unhappy by the whole situation. Southwood Properties does not have the proper resources and does not manage their time wisely. I highly suggest a different apartment unless you want to waste your time and deal with a mess.

The apartments are very clean and has all the amenities one could ask for. I've met one of my room mates since moving in, real friendly. The second night I was here the power went out and I called the maintenance man who answered the phone right away when I was expecting a machine. He informed me of the situation and assured me it was being fixed. The fixures including furniture here are up to date. The salesperson went over the paperwork thoroughly and made sure all questions were answered. The building seems safe with its codes and locks on the bedroom door. The only reason why I didn't give them five total stars is because I don't like that there's an 18.00 fee to use my credit card to pay rent online and I thought linens were provided but upon moving in I found out that they weren't and had to buy my own. Totally fine with this but would have liked to know this prior to moving in so there would be no surprises. FYI If you use your bank checking information than there is no fee, only if you use your credit card and everything else was provided as promised. So all in all, I'm thankful that I had found this property and I'm proud to call it my home.

Thank you for your positive words. Remember we do offer a Referral Bonus of $100 on your account if you do have anyone whom is looking for an apartment and decides to move in.


Close to MSU if youre wanting that. Rent is fairly reasonable. Apartment is furnished, included stuff for the kitchen, but I would suggest bringing your own anyway because of the quality of it. Apartment is VERY noisy. Not so much from the building itself, but the apartment next door. The noise from the other apartment was constant and got really annoying. I could hear their full conversations, even after a few complaints. The walls in the apartment are also very thin, which makes it kind of hard when roommates have different schedules and are awake/asleep at different times. Building manager was awesome, very helpful.
