I repeat, do not move in to this place or you will be making a HUGE mistake and regret it. I am updating this post after I just got hung up on after calling them.
If you are having thoughts about moving in to Core Riverbend apartments or town homes, take in to consideration what I have to say below.
I live in the area in Core Riverbend where you will find the town homes. Before first moving here in May, the leasing agents have a lot of ammunition to hype the place up. They have a mansion of an office, 2 nice swimming pools, racquetball rooms, and a weight room. These things are really nice, but they're only nice because they are the only things that Core Riverbend puts their money into!
While reading the problems I have below, keep in mind that I pay almost $1100 a money for this DUMP of a place!
I have MAJOR mold (green and black) and mildew problems. The entire maintenance crew is incompetent and does a half --- job fixing the simplest of tasks. After calling in, it took them 2 months and 3 failed attempts to fix a leak in my bathroom. Because of this leak, it added on to the even worse MOLD problem here! They ended up putting a whole new vanity in for my bathroom sink, simply covering up all of the nasty mold and rotting wood underneath. Now every time I open a cabinet in my bathroom sink, I get a nice whiff of wet mold and mildew.
Worms, ants, and other bugs come in from the bathrooms, the kitchen, all of the unsealed locations outside, the floors, the doors, and the windows. The bug man supposedly comes and sprays but it's impossible to get rid of the issue because these places are so OLD.
My fireplace above my roof is leaning at about a 10 degree angle. I swear it gets worse and worse each month. I am calling the Building Inspections Agency of Indianapolis this week to have them come look at the problem to see if I'm in danger of the fireplace caving in on me.
Almost every single closet door in the place doesn't work. The tracks are all broken and they all need replaced. Every time I've called maintenance about them they come and say it's fixed and the door breaks again after opening it once. I have lost all hope and have pretty much given up on the entire maintance crew.
All of the kitchen appliances are ----. They are all old and outdated, the dish washer barely works, the cabinets break all of the time, the refrigerator is tiny and old, and the stove top pieces are all bent causing pots and pans to slide off the stove when cooking and also causes uneven cooking. You'll find all of the great little annoyances if you choose to live here and decide not to pay the additional $250-$300 a month for new appliances! Personally, paying $1071/month I feel that the appliances should be at least somewhat nice considering the conditions of the rest of my place.
The garages outside are ridden with raccoons because Riverbend doesn't keep the garage units maintained.
The house and my clothes smell like smoke and no one who lives here smokes.
The leasing agent promised a $200 gift certificate to me upon moving in which I never got and never will get. My main concern about this is that they lied to me and when I asked them about it they say they can't help because the agent ""unfortunately"" doesn't work here anymore.
Finally, Core River does not care about you or your concerns as a resident. All they care about is milking you for your money so they can put it all in to making themselves look better. There are much better places around here that are much nicer and won't put as big of a hole in your wallet. Unforetunely, I have to put up with this place for 9 more months. All of this leads me to tell you: Don't live at Core Riverbend Apartments. I repeat, DO NOT LIVE AT CORE RIVERBEND APARTMENTS!
