My husband and I had a great experience in a one-bedroom unit at 125 Perrin in Ypsilanti from September 2012-July 2014. Flo-Mar has been great and is responsive to repair requests. The office manager Renee is a delight and easy to work with. She truly works for the good of the renters and responds quickly to emails. Having only one car, we chose the apartment for its convenient walk to campus. The neighborhood itself feels very safe, but my husband would pick me up from night classes just to be on the safe side (Ypsilanti has some crime, but that's not Flo-Mar's fault). It's also an easy walk to Washtenaw, where you can take a bus to downtown Ann Arbor. You can easily walk to Depot Town or the relaxing Riverside Park, and if it's a nice day you can go all the way to Corner Brewery. If there were any undergrad partiers in our complex, we didn't hear them, and there were only only a couple nights each semester where we could hear a nearby party. The units feel private and are quiet, with the biggest cause of noise being neighbors walking upstairs, but that's just apartment life. It's really nice living in the same building as Flo-Mar headquarters, where you can easily drop off your rent, ask Renee a question, or do laundry. The laundry machines were generally open, and we felt okay leaving clothes in there (it's locked- never had a problem), however be sure to stock up on quarters as we kept running out (bank or the car wash down Washtenaw). The provided internet is reliable but does not include streaming (also Ypsi/Ann Arbor) Upon leaving, we received our full security deposit and cleaning fee back. When we had to move a few weeks early, Renee worked hard to find us a subletter and thankfully we were able to leave without swallowing double rent. Earning the cleaning fee is tough work- if we hadn't had a couple friends help out it may not have been worth it. Overall we had a great experience and would recommend living in the Flo-Mar Perrin building, especially if you're an EMU student.
