Well I am new to Texas and I received a housing voucher from the VA and every place I call doesn't accept the voucher and the places that do I check the ratings and visit the properties and there is a huge difference solely because of the people and they do prove the stereotypes to be true. I am sinlge with no kids and I don't want to be around all the noise and drama but I have been looking for a decent place to live since July!
Im on sec 8 and sorry not true! I stayed in my last house b4 kovin to tx for 5yrs and not so much as the carpet needed cleaning! My landlord didn't hav to fix anything when i left! Ppl that aren't raised to take care of things don't not just low income housing tenants!
unfortunately when apartments take section 8 and low income, people tend to not know how to take care of the property and tend to break a lot of rules. I know low income people need a place to live, but in all cases that I have witnessed (I work in housing), they don't appreciate it and then we always have maanagement calling to discontinue their voucher programs due to tenants not wanting to behave like normal people!
Mary is great but the tenants are (capital)HORRIBLE. lived here for over a year and a half now and some have no regard for their neighbors. This noise disturbance can range anywhere from kids running up and down the steps (10 at night sometimes), loud music, loud adults, slamming doors, dogs barking to conversations that should be private. The walls are terribly thin and lets not forget you have to fight the roaches in your apartment. Don't get me wrong now Mary is the best thing about this place. Management (meaning the group that runs this place) should be fixing (fumigating #1) screening and monitoring 24 hours their property. A lot of the crap mentioned above goes on after hours. My choice is to move out on my next break when my lease is up. This is a fair warning.
IT'S NOT THAT BAD. I HAVE BEEN LIVING HERE FOR 2 YEARS. I DON'T TALK TO ANYONE AND I STAY TO MYSELF. EVERY SINCE MARY HAVE TOOK OVER THESE APARTMENTS HAVE BEEN A LOT BETTER. THE ONLY NOISE I HEAR IS WHEN PEOPLE OPEN THERE FRONT DOOR AND IT SLAMS CLOSE. THAT'S MY ONLY COMPLAINT. tHE SIDE I STAY ON IS QUIET AND I DON'T EVEN BE OUTSIDE HANGING AROUND TO SEE WHAT'S GOING ON. EVERY APARTMENT YOU MOVE TO PEOPLE ARE GOING TO ARGUE. THAT'S ONLY HUMAN NATURE DEMETRA
