Unless you are a Caucasian middle class family, I would not suggest living here. You will be treated as a second class citizen. My guess as to the reason we were allowed to live here as long as we did, they were afraid we'd press charges for discrimination. They are very, "by the book," except when it comes to giving you your returned deposit. We cleaned everything, including the walls, and cleaned the carpets, as requested, and received $40 of our $400 deposit back. The reason? We forgot to clean the inside of the stove. Apparently it takes 8+ hours to clean one of those, who knew. My roommate and I moved out halfway through the month (notice was given). As of today, we have yet to recieve the check for the last month's rent we were owed (due to paying first and last month's rent when moving in). To their credit, the complex is very beautiful. And the apartments themselves are quite nice. If they are still managed by the same people we had to deal with in August, I would not recommend it.
My family and I have lived at Forest Village for over a year and have had a fantastic experience. The apartments are well maintained and quite. The managers are friendly and are quick to respond anytime there is an issue. We have a seven year old son who loves playing outside with the other kids who live at the complex.
The Forest Village Apartments are clean, affordable, and very, very quiet. The neighbors are all kind and considerate, and all the grounds and facilities are very well maintained. The neighborhood feels safe and friendly, and there are tons of nearby places to walk, hike, bike, and explore. Since the new owners have taken over (it think in 2010), the place is undergoing a facelift. A lot of the units are being upgraded with laminate floors and stainless appliances, and having the on-site owner/managers and their extended family there makes me feel very secure. We never had a problem with mold, but we're careful about using exhaust fans, keeping air moving, etc. They've also refurbished the swimming pool, which is also well maintained and fun for the kids. We met a lot of our neighbors there over the summer, and it was an unexpected surprise when we moved in. The rent is very reasonable, and we would definitely consider coming back if our circumstances require us to rent an apartment again.
