We're moving out after two years at Chase Gayton due to my being transferred to another state. In general the apartments are pretty good. They're older, which means they're bigger and built sturdy, with less of a problem with neighbor noise than newer places. The flipside of that is an increased incidence of maintenance problems, but fortunately the maintenance staff is excellent.<br><br>The biggest single problem we've had at our place is that the building is very poorly insulated. Our electric bills are running $150 a month in the winter just from trying to keep our bedroom warm, and you can practically hang meat in the master bedroom closet! Other than that, the apartment itself has been great.<br><br>The grounds are OK, nothing special, but (mostly) well-lit and safe. The office staff is great and has been good to us. One thing to watch for is spikes in the rent price--we're paying $829 this year and they wanted to raise our rent all the way up to $999! Even if we weren't moving, that alone would force us out. I think they want to renovate our building and put in newer appliances so they can jack up the rent.
