BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY ...WELL CARED FOR
I say Excellent, but I haven't even gotten the keys to move in yet! My building is not scheduled to be completed until July 1. However, the quality of the example apartment in another Cascades building was top-notch. The floor plan is huge, and coupled with the high end finishes and fixtures, I expect to be completely happy in my new apartment. The management company's staff are friendly and helpful. But for satisfaction on aspects below, I simply cannot comment because I haven't moved in.
If you want something fixed quickly, forget it. If you want to walk into your building and have it smell, look, and feel nice, also forget it. The building is never taken care of the hallway carpets are disgusting, there is no air in the hallways making it smell and feel horrible. Lights are always out in the hallway. Outside of building, there are always cigarette butts since this building still allows smoking. The apartment itself is pretty spacious, but the layout is not user friendly (not enough cabinet space for pots and pans and absolutely no pantry area and there is a weird desk built into the kitchen counter, why?). The room we have faces South but forget feeling comfortable because the air conditioning unit is on the far side of apartment, no where near the bedroom, so there is no air flow. The walls and floors/ceiling are super thin so if you want quiet, look somewhere else. I constantly have problems with my neighbors below and above being loud and blasting music. Forget getting an issue with your neighbor taken care of too. I've had multiple issues with one neighbor, and it was never fully addressed, which is extremely frustrating. For the price you pay per month, there are definitely better taken care of apartments out there and property managers that actually care about the apartment and it's residents.
The apartment itself was very nice. However, I moved out almost 1 year ago and am still dealing with them trying to bill me for something I didn't do. The apartment manager, Tess, never responded to any maintenance requests while I was living there - I ended up fixing everything myself, including having to fix the blinds falling out of the wall. I shouldn't be surprised that there's still no communication on their end to try and fix this billing issue. My advice: save your check-out paperwork and record your check out session so when she says "Your apartment looks great, I'm surprised you've lived here as long as you have, it's in such good condition." and then tries to make you pay to replace the carpet, you have video evidence showing otherwise. For as many nice apartments to choose from in Fargo, I'd skip living here - it's not worth the headache.
I'm pretty pleased with this place! It took me only a few hours to schedule a meeting to look at the unit we now reside in. The 2B/2B is great. It looked small until I got all of my furniture in, and now I still have quite a bit of extra space I wasn't ready for! Bedroom, again looks small without stuff in it, but after putting our queen bed, and two bed side tables in, I have room for a computer desk and bookshelf I used to keep in my living room!
Pet deposit is cheap, affordable, and is used for 2 cats. NO additional deposit for the second cat! Plus no monthly "pet fees" which are a scam anyway.
Long story short, I'm impressed, and pleased with this apartment and I would, and have, recommend them.
