Avalon Oaks West
Resident • 2012 - 2013 Not Recommended
I lived ther for one year. Pros: Overall well maintained in the apt, nice gym, good communication on community issue via newsletters, good move-in and move-out info package; decent people living in the community; easy access to I93 and convenient grocery shopping. Cons: 1) The rent will go up when you try to renew the lease by A LOT!!! ( in my case ~15%) 2) The leasing office staff are often unavailable because they often work from another Avalon property a few miles away. 3) I could hear heavy steps from upstairs sometimes. Not sure it is an isolated case or other residents encount similar issues because of the building structure 4) The company has been creative in generating revenue stream from residents from a business perspective. Either pay them a hefty cleaning fee when you move out (you can leave the apt as it is without cleaning) or probably pay even more if your cleaning falls short of their standards. I did the cleaning myself and spent solid couple of days doing the cleaing and avoided that hefty cleaning bill. Overall advice: Before you move in here, think about the total moving cost if you know the rent will go up by 15-20% in a year. Look at the fine lines for fees, payment etc. They might send you incorrect bills, leading you to pay more.
