Do not live here if you don’t have to!!! The landlord BARELY repairs anything that needs to be fixed. My blinds were broken, I called right away to get them fixed, and they were not fixed until 4 weeks later. Also when you live here, you are paying to live in a “secure building”.... which is bullshit. I have lived here since June 2018, it is now February 2019, and they JUST fixed the security system on the outside of the building (and didn’t tell me the code... so I couldn’t get into my apartment). It says the rent here is $450, but you will end up paying around $480 once heat is added.... but they don’t mention any of that. The landlord is shit, the cost of rent to live here is shit, the overall experience i’ve had living here is shit.

I rented from summer 2018 through summer 2019.

The landlords/property managers at Bluff City Properties are absolutely terrible. The website claims "a private, off-street parking space is guaranteed for each renter." This is absolutely not true, and the majority of the time you will NOT be able to park in the lot, which is extremely inconvenient when alternate side parking is in effect. Parking is not regulated, and people who do not live in the building frequently park there. I have politely complained, both in person and over email and phone, countless times over the past YEAR and nothing has been done about this. They even falsely claimed they were going to provide parking passes to renters...this never happened. Insulation is poor and though the website claims the water is softened, I have serious doubts. The property managers also guarantee that the units will be cleaned before new renters move in, yet when I arrived the unit was absolutely filthy and took a considerable amount of time to clean. The units are also extremely loud, especially if you live on the bottom floor, and people will often pound on the windows. Although this location is very close to campus, it is not worth it for the parking hassles and rude, inefficient landlords. I do not recommend living here, and will be moving out next year.
