TRAIN- Only feet from the complex, runs/blows horn constantly, management conveniently leaves that little jem out of the brochure.
PARTY- If you like living feet from neighbors in any direction you'll be happy. When they party you'll know. Hell, when they talk, you'll know.
SHODDY- Cabinets and drawers fall apart, fall out, fall on your feet, stuff falls through them, off of their uneven surfaces.
DOGS- I'm an animal person, but I don't get off stepping on dog crap. Not my idea of a good time, but I'm getting used to dodging it. Ah, the stench of urine and feces. Reminds me of the ghetto.
APPLIANCES- They don't work. You get a dishwasher, washer/dryer, fridge, and none work properly. Washing stuff twice and throwing out food is fun!
LIES- Be prepared. You'll hear them.
RESULTS- Don't expect any.
AFFORDABLE- Not a bad deal unless you account for the wasted money on heat and AC that goes out the leaky windows, the expense of washing dishes and clothes twice, and a fridge that runs constantly to keep food cold.
AMMENITIES- Nice pools, computer w/ internet available, fax machine, fitness center. If you use that stuff it's pretty cool.
In closing I'll say that I'm glad I signed a short term lease. Each person will have a different experience. You may love it here. The floorplans are really nice and if you don't mind the noise than you might like it here. It's really convenient to either Boulder or Denver if you don't mind the traffic. Just be wary, and ask questions!
