This year a rent increase of 100-200.00 and last year nearly $100 per month. The outside is dirty, dirty windows/chipped dirty doors, just recently replaced/painted the stair railings which were literally falling apart. Outdated on the inside. Very noisy, kids screaming, people blare music and have parties all day, sometimes well into the night. Single pane windows, poor insulation: hot in the summer and cold in the winter, your utility bills will reflect it. If you share a wall with a neighbor, expect to hear them at night. I have been woken up on at least two occasions to people arguing in the parking lot out front, plus constant car alarms, motorcycles starting, etc. With everyone moving here and to Oregon, rent will keep increasing alarmingly. I moved in here around four years ago at 735.00 for a two bedroom, now I believe it has nearly doubled. With everyone moving here, I think it is pretty safe to say that you will keep seeing a significant increase in rent here each year.

I moved into these apartments because in comparison to other apartments, these were affordable. I was not aware then of the high rent increases that occur each year, not once since I have lived here has there not been a rent increase and its usually around 50-80.00 a month! It's not like the money is being spent on improving the way this place looks, the cupboards are still ugly brown formica from the 70's, the apartment doors are scratched and peeling (some are an ugly orange color) the rails by the stairs are chipped and the paint is peeling and the patios or stairs are never pressure washed or re painted. Due to the single pane windows and poor insulation, it is very hot in the summer and freezing in the winter, it's a constant battle to get the temperature right. Plus a high electric bill to go along with it. The office people are pleasant and helpful but the property management company doesn't seem concerned about much except raising the rent to make more $$$
Horrible management, moldy units, and overall terrible pricing. Played nearly $9000 total (deposits, rent, and fees) for my 4 month stay in a 2bedroom upstairs unit. Unhelpful, stingy, overall rude management more than negates any upsides from its central location. A bit more time spent searching for a place will be well worth it.
About 3x a week I see Johanna upkeeping the complex, wether it be sweeping our porches, organizing the recycling bins ,or maintaining the foliage. She makes living here a pleasure, knowing our home is in good hands. We thank you so much and appreciate all that you do, you go above and beyond and we all notice it. Thanks from Christina&Jack
The apartment started out wonderful. Near the MAX, close to shopping, restaurants & Cedar Hills.The complex was recently changed to non-smoking. I moved in under that circumstance, only to find out people continue to smoke INSIDE their apartment units, which share an interior hallway, so you constantly get second hand cigarette smoke inside your apartment. I politely let the management know this was occurring on a multi-daily basis and the on-site management team, Ralph & Judy told me they could do nothing about it and didn't even attempt to stop the problem. I hoped to work with management to solve this problem together, and they were not supportive or willing to work with me whatsoever.In addition to smoke filled apartments and common areas, the apartments have MOLD everywhere. If it is not visible to the eye, which a lot of it must be in the walls as we started smelling it a month or so into our lease. You can't leave anything out (butter in butter dish for instance) overnight without it molding. Overall HORRID experience and terrible management company - Carla Properties. Avoid them at ALL costs.
