Recent Roscoe Properties reviews
Overly expensive for what you get
I would not recommend this apartment complex. It is more expensive than most other comparable apartment complexes but the apartments and amenities are dated. Furthermore, the leasing company is not particularly helpful (though in the past few months they have improved). Apartment complex is loud and the entire property is poorly kept and commonly dirty. Pros: Location, Free Parking, Pet Friendly (with fee)
Terrible Apartment with Terrible Management
Not to be a debbie downer but this is an absolutely awful complex. Management is unresponsive to maintenance requests, there is trash all over the complex property (even though we pay an absurd monthly fee). The gated community does not have working gates, the property is wide open.
You really can't beat the location of this building. If you want to happy hour, there's a sports bar next door. If you want a bite to eat, there are amazing restaurants all up and down Congress including Hopdoddy's and Homeslice. This complex is very pet friendly and you meet a lot of people at the pool. Overall great experience.
First Move In Review
We moved in a couple weekends ago, and we did not have a working stove or hot water. I realized the day before moving in we needed a gas account, which management failed to inform until the day before me moved in (some apartments include gas). We had a few maintenance issues, but they were completed within the week. We will see if that continues throughout the year. The apartment was mostly clean. So far management has been helpful, and the complex is pretty quiet in the evenings. Our patio gets night sunlight which is nice too. There is a dog run with trashcans around, and people are picking up. Our gate is kept open during the day but it's probably due to renovations. I haven't run into any problems yet!
The best part of life at Trio is our proximity to downtown (its about a 6-8$ Uber ride, so that's great!) the modern kitchen (granite countertops, stainless steel applicances, and subway tile backsplash and great kitchen sink/fixtures) and easy-going management. Plus, the wood floors and grey-painted walls give it a home-y but modern feel. We're in a one bedroom/one bath for 999$ - not bad for Austin!
However, it's not the safest area. Several of our neighbors have been robbed, and one of my neighbors is a dealer (you can guess what I mean, haha) We've got peace of mind due to renters insurance and a large, protective guard dog. If you choose Trio, get insurance and never leave valuables visible in your car & lock your doors!
Love the location of this complex! I was able to get rid of my car and take the bus to work. downtown. It's great being on the Greenbelt, close to Zilker Park and Mopac.
The apartment itself is slightly outdated, but management has been very responsive when issues arise. It is a safe community
Great location with decent renovations complete
Location is prime for quick & easy restaurants, H-E-B, Town Lake trail, Rainey Street, and the dog park at 35 & Riverside. Great pool and people makes for a fun & relaxed feel in the community. The apartment itself is renovated with modern floors, cabinets, and sink. My biggest complaint is the lack of closet space. All you get is the bedroom closet, which has really cumbersome sliding doors and no lighting whatsoever. The renovations are excellent in the main living space & kitchen, prett
Perfect location for young adults
Great location right on south congress. walking distance to hopdoddy's etc. The pool is great in the summertime, lots of fun guests and pool parties. The apartments are huge, especially in three bedrooms like my own. Maintenance is fast, but the management and parking situation is a little bit of a mess. Would recommend.
Good experience overall
Cobalt is in a great location in central Austin and is only a couple of miles from downtown. The staff are very friendly and considerate. Any time I have had any issues, the maintenance staff have been quick to respond. My apt. was recently renovated, so the appliances are new and there are hardwood floors.
Roscoe is the worst management company ever
I lived there for two years and only because it was so cheap. Just moved out last week. Once Roscoe bought the property, painted it and slapped a rent hike of almost 100 bucks a month on it I left. Not a moment too soon either. They screwed up multiple times on bills and rent then force us to pay for their mistakes. If you can't afford anywhere else I feel bad for you. Pick an extra shift because down the road there are apartments that are infinity better than the connection.
Great Location, not worth $
They totally take advantage of every fee they can. They even changed the free parking to make everyone pay. They make you pay for every little thing including $50 a month for trash valet service. Also, had a robbery situation and failed to tell anyone.
Great experience so far! The maintenance staff is really great and the staff overall is very personable and helpful. I do love how close to work and downtown and all the nightlife it is. I also like my apartment and the floors are really nice. The paint is nice, overall it's a nice place.
You get what you pay for
CityView at SoCo is a great location and it is cheaper than the other apts in the area, but it is because the place is built INCREDIBLY CHEAP! Stuff is always broken, you can hear through the walls, you know when your neighbors are getting personal... They tried to make people start buying "premium" parking spots by turning half of the garage into "premium parking". If you show up after 8, good luck parking at the apt. You'll probably have to park down the street and walk back. I've personally caught someone stealing bikes out of the garage and after the office was notified about it? They didn't report it back to the tenants.
The location is perfect. Management can be hard to get ahold of. They're usually okay at getting things fixed. Kind of old crappy building, but it's not ridiculously expensive, yet. Greenbelt and TacoDeli right there. Bus right there. Cheap uber downtown.
Semi new resident but in love
Fairly new to the complex. I've been here for about 8 months but for the location and price this place is amazing. Everything is truly in walking distance and the management company is quite quick and helpful. I've never had any major issues and anything I do bring to their attention they address in a timely manner.
