We recently moved in and it was a mistake. Our family recently moved back to take a job in Seattle. Because we were relocating from CA to WA and had a short time to find a place, so we chose the Bay Court because we lived here in 2009/2010 and enjoyed it. We did not have children at that time. Price of rent was $1265. Issues we have had in the week we have been here. The online signing of the lease is not efficient and we had many issues with it. There is a lack of communication between office staff. I was not sent the link to sign the paperwork on time before we cancelled our internet. The I told Nicole we would sign it once we arrived since we did not have internet and Joel (I believe) did not understand what I was saying. I am a polite person and prefer to wait until I am called in the office.There is a blonde woman (I believe) who overlooks us in the office and never helped. I usually had to wait until one of the men were available. I usually dealt with Nicole over the the phone, so I am not sure if she is the one who keeps overlooking us when we go into the office. On to the apartment. It is not worth $1938 a month plus what they charge for trash, sewer, and water. It was poorly updated. The apartment was full of black dog hair that maintenance or their painting crew just painted over. You have fresh paint with dog hair underneath. I have all sorts of whole at the base of the walls in every room, which allows all sorts of bugs and insects to enter the apartment. I am waiting on their exterminator. I was told we have bugs, ants, and other insects because it is a wooded area. Oh, when the weather is hot, prepare to have flying bugs surround your entrance door. The apartment never warms, even with running the heat all day, which quickly can add up. By the time we wake in the morning, it is just as cold inside as it is outside. I also have vents that blow cold air into the kitchen and bathrooms, which could be why the place never heats. I have told the office and nothing has been done.The base board heater warmers the wall it is on, but that it it. The floors are laminate, but has the look of hardwood. They are scratched and seem to bubbles or have dents. There is black stuff around the windows and I am not sure if it was mold or not. I have listed that along with other discrepancies and no one has gotten back to us. There is not enough parking. Most places will offer 1 parking spot free, but they charge. In 2010 it was $35, but I am not sure how much it is now. Parking is really tight on the weekend as most people are home. Poop on the grass and prepare to hear your neighbors dog yapping. Our neighbors upstairs get up at 4 and we can hear them running, walking, and washing clothes. We can also hear them in the bathroom. You want a ground floor for convenience, but have to deal with neighbors. ( I know it a art of apartment living) This is all stuff we did not experience when we lived here previously and our neighbors then had children we never really heard. Maybe walls have thinned. I do not think we will be here the full term of our lease. Now that we are in area, we can physically look at places.
DON'T...that's all I can say.
