Great Apt with a porch

Apts on the higher level always have an advantage of good views from the porch, but also need better heating. Our apartment is great, a little bit of a walk from Ross. But the peace and the large living room, kitchen makes up for it. Comfortable.

Refurnished but old apartment unit

This is an old apartment building and unit for which the landlord has made some improvements to. It has a newly-installed hardwood floor in the bedrooms, but it is an otherwise old building. There are plans to refurnish the bathroom, but not sure when that'll be - as of now, it's kept clean but definitely old. The landlord is fairly responsive to requests, for which there are many given this is an old building. There was an issue with the heating system for two months, but it was finally fixed.

Great Place to Live

Positives
:One of the great things about this place is the location. Situated right by Michigan Stadium, it is about a 12 minute walk to Ross, 15 minute walk to Main St, 5 minutes to the gym, and 2 minutes from The Bus.
The kitchen has a lot of counterspace and the rooms are spacious.
The landlord is also easy to work with. He is very responsive and plows the driveway in the winter.

Negatives:The unit has an air conditioner built into the wall downstairs and no air conditioning upstairs. As a result, the 2nd floor can be very hot and uncomfortable to sleep in.
It is located by the train track so there are nights when a train will go by at 3 am and blow its horn, which can be frustrating.
If anything breaks, the landlord opts for the cheapest way to fix the issue, essentially putting a bandaid on the issue.

Great compromise on all attributes

Landlord is a nice person and responsive. The apartment is a great compromise on all attributes: price, location to Ross/downtown, cleanliness, size, etc.

Great location, expensive

Our apartment has a nicer updated kitchen, but everything else in the unit is pretty tired. It could definitely use some TLC with some paint, doors, carpet, bathroom updates. I consider the price to be fairly high, but it's also a 2 bedroom and Ann Arbor is a fairly expensive market. For the location, the price is just about worth it.

Great Apartment

The apartment is in decent condition; although, it is old so my roommate and I did some sprucing when we arrived. It is about a 12 minute walk to Ross, a 10 minute walk to the IM Gym, and 2 minute walk to the Bus. There are a lot of other MBAs living here so it's can feel like an extension of Ross at times. There is a laundry machine here - shared by ~8 apartments. I wish there was more than one washer and dryer but it has worked out so far. I'd recommend this place - we are staying in the apartment for our second year.
