submitted by Gabrielle M. - |Recommended: YesGreat apartment in an excellent location — In my building, we have a gorgeous view of Portland and the river skyline I love it here, and the rent is not outrageous. The only complaint I have is parking gets tight around 5 pm every evening and sometimes I have to walk really far to my apartment from where I parked.
submitted by Rocio J. - |Recommended: YesWe like it family friendly calm atmosphere. — It's a good community. Staff is friendly and helpful. We like this layouts and what you get for your money. Parking can be better thought.
submitted by Sable P. - |Recommended: YesLove living here — Great location, close to shopping and freeway access. No noise issues, clean and friendly neighborhood.
submitted by Erin H. - |Recommended: NoNice property, stays clean — Very nice place to live, unfortunately you hear everything the neighbors above you are doing. Should have put better insulation in between floors. Also, unless you pay an additional 35.00 per month, parking spaces are not available to renters. I have lived here now 5 months and my rent has been raised 200.00. Not a bad place to live, but there are a lot of small additional out of pocket expenses.
submitted by Riley N. - |Recommended: YesQuiet and Convenient — My apartment is extremely quite with the exception of the dumpster across from me which the maintenance men use in the morning as I'm heading to work. I hear it for maybe 15 minutes before leaving for work and in no way affects me negatively. The location of the complex is extremely convenient for me because it is a 5 minute drive to work and a 2 minute drive to the grocery store.
submitted by Jeremy L. - |Recommended: YesGreat complex but... — Your parking situation is horrific if you come home after 9pm. I work nights and routinely leave and come home late. You frankly want to much money for parking spaces and garages when available are also to much. Even if I wanted to pay for a covered spot there aren't that many available. rRule enforcement is lacking badly for parking lots. I remember seeing in the rental agreement that children are not to be playing in the parking lots. However I routinely see kids and teenagers playing and kicking balls in the parking lot around peoples cars and impeding traffic. As for the apartments themselves I think the only real flaw I see is some interior trim is coming off from the edges of counter tops and I'm not sure how I could be causing it. Noise is what I expect from an apartment really, but I think I am fairly relaxed in this area. This all may sound harsh but I am paying enough in rent each month that I could buy a house and pay the same. When you ask so much from a resident expectations rise dramatically. On a positive note I really like my apartment, exterior design and grounds are wonderful, interior layout is also wonderful. Neighbors are quiet and I love seeing people walking their dogs. The few times I have had guests they were impressed with my apartment in general. If you don't raise the rent too much I hope to stay here for another lease. I understand that rent for my two bedroom with loft is approaching 1400 a month and that will really be my limit. I've seen 4 bedroom houses nearby that could be purchased at that monthly payment on a 30 year mortgage.
submitted by Bryan W. - |Recommended: YesOverall - Nice Place to Live — The first ratings this survey asks about I have to rate low, so let's tackle those first. About the noise - It's a few people who don't respect their neighbors, and I expect that at any complex. It's a couple of people who I woke up and spoke to a few times because they were out being loud late at night, and a neighbor we know is coming home at night and leaving in the morning because he slams his door. Other than that, we hear very little, and we certainly cannot and would not blame the management for the behavior of a few of the people who live here. As for parking... If I could always get home from work right at 5 15 PM, I would have to give parking five stars, and I would know nothing different. If I get home after 7 00 PM because I stay late and work longer hours, I know that there's a good chance that I will be walking up from the south end of the complex from my car to apartment. I always get a bit nervous as that part of the parking lot seems less well-lit at night than the spaces near my apartment. That said, I would rather have the inconveniences I experience here than the best experiences I have had at some previous rentals. My wife and I love the staff here. The maintenance is fast. I've waited for days for maintenance requests at other places, and here I've seen every request I make completed the same day. While I haven't gone and visited due to my work schedule, my wife loves to go visit with the office staff and get a cup of coffee in the morning. Overall, until we are ready to purchase a home again, we are happy at Sterling Heights.
submitted by Erin D. - |Recommended: YesNice Apartments, Staff not always helpful — We've lived here for almost three years and we really love our apartment. However, in the last year we've had trouble with the staff messing up paperwork and payments on our account.
submitted by Julie M. - |Recommended: YesVery clean, friendly, easy access to shopping and highways — I love it here. Noise question confused me. It's very friendly here. I like hearing the children play in the play ground. Sounds like Home
submitted by Aaron F. - |Recommended: YesSterling Heights has been good to us for the past 3 years — We've been here since 2013, we love our floor plan. We have not had the most pleasant interactions with the office staff. Mind you, we've never needed anything really from them, never paid rent late. They just are callus and not personable. I can't imagine how I'd feel if I ever needed them for anything I'm sure I'd really be upset. But as long as you're like us and don't need the office for anything it's great place.
submitted by Jillian L. - |Recommended: YesNormal apartment issues, overall very nice — Parking is difficult most of the time unless you pay a steep price for a carport. Also, you can hear neighbors outside and in other units pretty well. But those are expected issues for most apartments. Everything else is pretty great It's a nice apartment, good size, lots of amenities for the price. I'm quite happy here
submitted by Andrew B. - |Recommended: YesProperty itself is very nice and well maintained — Overall nice grounds, cozy apartment, and safe living environment. Very noisy dogs and neighbors, some rude and non-genuine staff, and reckless landscapers who blow dirt and dust through our windows and have destroyed our backyard grass. Scarce parking at night almost forces you to pay for a spot or risk getting a ticket with street parking.
submitted by Betty L. - |Recommended: YesI love that the community has a park like setting — I recommend IDM properties a lot. The communities are great for families which is not always the case with apartments.
submitted by Amanda T. - |Recommended: YesAffordable living — Sterling Heights has so far been a great place to live. It is affordable and the location is convenient. I like the layout of the apartment, however the floors and countertops could use some updates. Parking is pretty terrible, I almost can never find a spot and since I already pay rent I don't think I should have to pay for a spot. Other than parking I am very satisfied with the complex
submitted by James L. - |Recommended: YesGreat Apartment Wonderful Staff but.. — The apartments are Absolutely Gorgeous and the Staff are Great...BUT the lack of parking or seeing 2 or 3 cars and a Work Truck for One Apartment Tie up all the free parking spots for the weekend Especially the Work Trucks so my Guests have to park all the way in front or across the street is not fun. Also people tossing their sacks of garbage and broken furniture in the Trash Areas on the Ground is not fun to Navigate through when I am trying to dispose of my own my trash I KNOW this is Not the fault of the Property Owners or Management but perhaps a Letter to all stating NO furniture disposal or children throwing out trash because the dumpsters are too high might help i personally watched people emptying a Garage of crap into the dumpsters and area when they were moving out and just walked away. When i said something they pretended not to understand English Other then That it is a very Nice Place and that is the Main Reason I do stay Especially because of the Wonderful staff Sincerely Jim Lascola
