Resident • 2004 - 2007 Not Recommended
Crosscreek USED to be a good place to live. HOWEVER, a new owner has changed all of that. The current staff do what they can with what they have been given, but .. well, their hands are tied. Stingy, greedy owners seem to prevail. This is an old complex .. 30 years plus. So things wear out, need updating. That doesn't seem to be high on the priority list of the new owners. Cosmetic things to impress new, prospective tenants IS high on the list. Apparently, replacing the grass in front of the office with pretty green sod is more important than replacing a barely working stove of a current tenant. A fancy new clubhouse with fancy new furniture (which by the way, is no longer available for rental for parties or family get togethers, not to mention it is locked up at 10 pm nightly) is more important than replacing worn out carpeting, broken wall outlets, antique lighting fixtures, stained tubs/sinks, dilapidated cabinets, or leaky faucets. Yes, current tenants requests for repairs, replacements, and updating, are basically ignored. "Until it is completely broken, deal with it" - seems to be the new motto. Structural defects abound ... something you won't notice until you live here a month or so. Cracks that appear in ceilings and walls, doors that stick due to settling, seals that have failed in windows, plumbing that allows sewage to back up into tubs, toilet water that gurgles, floors that squeak, and nothing is level. Noise is a huge issue. Sounds echo from one unit to the next. If you don't mind walking on eggshells all day every day, sitting 6 inches in front of your TV so the "noise" doesn't bother neighbors, or listening to music using headphones, or paying huge rental increases for no apparent reason, then by all means - move to Crosscreek. The staff here is excellent. The new owners blow. Basically, things are sugar and spice until you sign the lease. Rent is ridiculous for the value. You would be better off renting a house. It would be cheaper, also.
