The Meadows at Parkwood Pointe
Resident • 2018 Not Recommended
Avoid any apartments owned by Capstone Management at all cost, unless you'd like to get trapped in the worst contract agreement in SE Idaho. Unless you are lucky enough to move out on the exact day your contract ends, you will pay ridiculous penalties ($2000 minimum) to ever get out of these apartments. In Idaho Falls, their apartments include Meadows at Parkwood, Parkwood Pointe & Meadowood Apartments. I am a current resident in the Meadows at Parkwood going on 5 years. I had been out of my initial contract and on month-to-month for more than 2 years when Capstone bought the complex. Having never been late on one payment in my multiple years in these apartments, I was presented 3 crappy choices by the new California based company: either move out, sign a contract at an increased rent amount, or pay hundreds more a month as penalty to stay on month-to-month. Due to circumstances beyond my control at that time these options were presented, I signed the contract not fully understanding the details. Regrettably, recently I'm learning that this company is introducing contracts into this area unlike any you'll find with any other apartments. Bottom line: You cannot get out of these apartments ever without paying additional penalties! I've lived in many different apartments in SE Idaho during the past 10+ years, and have never seen anything like this in this area. It's extremely rare that I take the time to write reviews, but I feel strongly enough to warn people to avoid apartments owned by this company! Before proceeding to write a review, I've talked with each level of management all the way up to its California base to allow them the opportunity to resolve this issue. If you ever have to do the same, you will quickly learn that you are a number on a spreadsheet and they've got total control based on your signature on their ridiculous contracts. They will explain why they can't do anything because of the investors and recite the Fair Housing Agreement, but the reality is you will learn that they are screwing all of their tenants equally so it qualifies as "fair". Furthermore, appearance-wise the apartments look nice but they are much older than they appear which is resulting in more maintenance issues. In just the past few months, I have had 2 major maintenance issues which resulted in maintenance workers in my place multiple days each time. I could go on and on pointing out the differences between how this out-of-state investment group is different and worse than any other apartments you'll find in this area, but the main point I'm making is to avoid signing anything with them cause to ever get out of these apartments, you will pay a fortune!
