I have lived in Auburn Apartments for 5 months, and I have hated it since the day I moved in.
They are cheaply built and cheaply maintained by a lackadaisical negligent management team.
Good luck if you live in a bottom apartment. I hear EVERYTHING. Even if my neighbors are tiptoeing across their living room floor it sounds like a stampede. If you do live in a bottom apartment, the neighbors stairs to their apartment run along your bedroom wall and every-time they come or go it's BOOM BOOM BOOM SLAM. You are an audible participant every-time they use the bathroom or do their laundry. And be cautious when your ceiling drips a bucket of water, unsure if it was do to a rainstorm or the neighbors.
And RULES? Hahaha, that's laughable. 30 pound weight-limit for pets? I don?t think so. I was mandated to live in a bottom apartment for reasonable weight restrictions against my Golden Retriever, but when my upstairs neighbors have a Golden Retriever, a yellow Lab and a small dog mix, it apparently is of no concern to the complex team. I addressed the issue of noise and feces problems, and they said, we know, they snuck the dogs in there?. annnnnddddd? And nothing, there they stay, happily creating drum-solos above my head every day. And I?ve come to find out that not every pet owner has held up his or her contractual obligation of paying the $350 pet deposit.
The apartments are cheap and mix-matched. From the mirrored closet doors to the shower knobs, nothing matches. And when you have a maintenance issue, they come over once (IF they come over) and then are never heard from again. My tub and sink are both rusting out, but Tetanus is of no concern to the property management.
And not all of the apartments are the same. My friend's apartment across the way has a brand new electric thermostat and dishwasher, while mine has an old manual piece and a 1970's dishwasher.
And my apartment is situated behind a club and a veterinary office. All day long I am privileged to random dogs relieving themselves in my backyard and at night the booming base from the club is not exactly a calming night melody.
And last but not least, ""The sound of Freedom."" I knew there was going to be an issue when I signed a clause in my contract about Jet Noise. But the low-flying government employees sound as if they are parking atop the roof. I had a guest, and she took cover when she thought a plane was coming through the apartment.
Save yourself the headache and drive up the street a block where apartments are nicer and cheaper.
Ps. There are evil ugly ducks that run amuck and poop on everything! And almost every door is covered in bird-droppings.
