Resident · 2005 - 2007
I've lived in the Balboa complex for 2 years. The rent is comparable to other places but has gone up so much its getting too expensive compared to similar places. Parking is ridiculous! $400 a year for one spot, you don't even get one spot with the apartment and the spots are so small. My car has been hit so many times and I've been blocked in or had to crawl out of the back door just to get out because they are so small. And whats worse is that the maintenance people don't have parking so they park in someone's spot or they just park wherever and block you in. The sewage system is HORRIBLE! I have to call out a plumber at least once a month and sometimes more. I've had things not fixed that I've submitted claims for now since we moved in 2 years ago. Management is ok, but slow at getting things done. The apartments are slightly bigger than similar ones on this street but with the price going up more than other places I would go with them. Its so frustrating when you call every month because your sink is overflowing onto the floor and no one shows up, or they do, put a bandage on it and you have to call again the very next week. It's not worth it. We are moving out at the end of our lease!
