I lived in a one bdrm apt. The complex was built in the late 70's and it showed. Before I moved in the kitchen appliances were modestly updated but the cabinets were original and needed replaced. A new kitchen floor was placed but there was a 4 inch tear in the linoleum. Improvements were made but done on a budget. I lived in a ground floor apt. With having just one bedroom window the bedroom was always damp in the summer. The carpet had a smell from the dampness. I had leather shoes that developed mildew. I bought DampRid and it still didn't solve the problem.
The back of the apt bldg is very close to a large wooded area. It was peaceful but it meant there were critters nearby. I saw raccoons, groundhogs, a skunk, snakes and had young yellow ringneck snakes in my apt in the summer. Fortunately they are harmless.
For the positives, the grounds were well maintained. When I needed maintenance he came quickly. There is assigned and visitor parking. It was quiet and I always felt safe.
My last rent was $670/mo which is about the average for the area.
Definitely if you need an apt avoid the ground floor and the problems with dampness and possible critters in your apt. If you can live with the budget friendly mentality the owners have about upgrades, considering the positives I listed this could be a good place to live.
Potential Resident...There is a TON of mold in my garage, & God knows how much in the walls! The rain comes in the garage, & stays there.
I've asked several times for maintenance to do something about it, but I got nothing! Not to mention, the modest repairs for the high rent. Snappy attitudes from the head landlords are grounds for moving alone!
I was shown a one bed room couldn't get past the strong smell of mold
