I wish I could give zero or negative stars. The absolute worst!!!!!! We went to look at this place in October and put down our deposit while we were waiting to look at the apartment because it was not yet available. The day we viewed the actual apartment we hated it (so small and ghetto for the price they are asking) so we came back an hour or two later and said we were not interested and wanted our $250 deposit back then they tried to pull the "it is non- refundable" card on us. My boyfriend and I both have dads who sit on the board of realty and the law is you have 72 hours from the time you VIEW the apartment to get your money back. The manager is a really really mean person with an awful temper (oh and her and the receptionist talked crap about me while I was on the phone because the manager apparently does not know how to put the phone on hold, so I could hear absolutely everything they said). Needless to say, we got the $250 back after a long fight for 4 months, but these people are seriously crooks and you can get a much better apartment for the same price down the street.
I have lived in apartments for 10 years this is the best staff ever.
I felt that I looked around a lot and felt comfortable with my decision, but I didn't look around enough. Yes, the staff is attractive friendly young women, but clearly has no control as to who they rent to. Since I moved here in August 09 the very loud domestic arguments are never ending. Just this past Saturday night I had to call police to stop what sounded like a woman being murdered. The fees for utilities do add up to a lot more than what I was told and feel that I could have a better place to live and paid about what I pay now when factoring the fees. Also, I was a day late paying rent, yes my fault, but then had to pay a $75 late fee plus the $5 for having to pay with a money order. I have submitted to requests for minor repairs to my unit, but have not received a response yet. Funny how they ding you for a day late in paying rent, but have no problem leaving you hanging when you need repairs....GRRRRR! I am amazed at how many people keep dogs in these small apartments, but thankfully I have complaints about barking dogs. Seems like most of the residents are 20 something’s just getting out of their parents house, have roommates and enjoy playing their hip/hop music very loud. My perspective is one of a person who has just been divorced and has not lived in an apartment in over 20 years. Maybe this is just that way apartment living is and I will move to a better situation soon. Bottom is just when you feel that you just can't look at another apartment, keep looking. Hope this was helpful.
52nd Marketplace is a nice place to live if you're on a budget. Sure, I'd love to be living lavishly, but right now I just don't have the funds. This complex is safe, the neighbors are friendly, and it is surprisingly quiet considering its proximity to I-70. Plus there is anything you could possibly want within a 5 mile radius!! You would miss out on a great affordable living place if you didn't take a look at 52nd!
