I don't think so...
If youre interested in renting at Wayne Village, I'd strongly encourage you to look at the Google reviews & RECONSIDER. The current management has had this property for over a year; but its only gone downhill since they came into ownership of it over 1y ago. Many of the issues tenants have are obvious things that management has received multiple complaints about and have had ample time to address. So its honestly pretty discouraging to see their responses where they try to justify the ongoing issues in people's reviews by saying they are new management. You can accomplish a lot in a year, this is not an excuse.
The maintenance staff is under qualified to handle the present problems with the complex. They refuse to call in professionals to fix the heating & water issues, both of which are a MAJOR problem. Due to this you can expect water to be shut off multiple times a month during the warmer months with less than 24 hr notice. This is a reoccurring thing that has been happening for over 3 years. In colder months, you roast due to heat that you cannot turn off running 24/7; youll likely run your ac or fan year round ($$$). If youre not roasting youll be freezing as some units do not get heat. The office thinks that giving people space heaters to resolve this is an acceptable solution.
If they actually wanted to fix the problems residents have, it would have been done by now. They would have called in professionals to get the job done; but they dont want to do that. Instead they would rather blow their budget on remodeling the apartments and halls to make them look nicer, attracting unfortunate prospective tenants. Management also frequently makes public claims that they will do things to correct issues or asks people to "stop into the office" (8:30-5 w/ no weekend hours, GL with that if you work) to discuss problems; but this is a waste of everyone's time as they will never actually correct issues properly, so dont be fooled into thinking they are trying.
Unfortunately, this is one of the only apartment complexes in the area that allows dogs. If we didn't have a dog, there's no way we would stay. We've had mold growing in our kitchen due to a leaking roof for 10 weeks. Every time I call for a work order, they tell me they'll send someone tomorrow. Still waiting. This place is way over-priced for what it is. I'm paying over $1800 for a moldy one bedroom.
Initially, the exterior grounds and property are what appealed to me, especially the pool. However, the management company should do more to enhance the experience for renters, and consider upgrading appliances. In addition, this might reduce the noise level that comes from older appliances such as dishwashers, air conditioners, and old plumbing, which can be extremely irritating and disruptive. I moved to Wayne Village to lower my monthly expenses and although $1500.00 was a decent reduction from what I paid previously; the quality of life here does not warrant that kind of rent. Renters are more likely to stay if you invest in some decent upgrades.
