We moved here approximately a month ago. So far I am not terribly disappointed with the exception of a few items. We are paying for a unit with a washer and dryer. We still have not received the washer and dryer. Due to this we had to purchase a laundry facility card for $5 and we put $20 on it. In essence I have paid $50 to do 8 loads of laundry this month. I have spinal arthritis and lugging my laundry and laundry supplies up and down 3 flights of stairs is not pleasant to say the least. We chose the 3rd floor apartment for 2 reasons, it was the only 3 bedroom available and we like the extra security of not living on a ground floor. On the positive side: These apartments are reasonably priced (under 900 a month for a 3 bedroom with washer and dryer). I have had to call maintenance a few times for non emergency repairs and they have responded within 48 hours. Some may say that is too long. I disagree. 48 hours is perfectly reasonable for NON -emergency calls. The font office staff and the maintenance personnel are extremely pleasant to work with.
I lived in these apartments for two years. Overall I was very pleased with my time as a tenant there. The location is prime (closer than the dorms to UNM). You sign a one yr contract but then go month to month with one a month notice. Only had one rate increase of $10. Maintenance is not there strong suit but everything does eventually get done and they spray regularly for bugs so that was never a problem. They are pretty hands off which was appreciated by me because in my past apts there was constant apartment policy changes, which is irritating. This is a family run apt complex and it was pretty easy to contact someone in. My complaints would be there lack of enforcing parking (parking is often taken by UNM students leaving tenants with no/ bad parking) Once I confronted someone and they told me they had permission from the owners but idk. Also I did not get my full deposit back even though I left the place far cleaner than from when I moved in. (it was not very clean at all when I moved in * blinds and vents covered in a thick layer of grim*)
I am single mother with a child of one. I am currently living in a one bedroom apartment. which is great because it within my price range of $ 605.00 a month with utilities included. Therefore I don't have to worry about paying other bills I just pay my rent every month and I know I won't have to worry about paying bills. I can enjoy my time with my daughter. I feel safe here in this community, the school bus does drop off the kids right in front of apartments which is great because I just wait for him to get off. I don't have to worry about him not getting home.
