SAFE AUSTIN APARTMENTS, WHERE ARE THEY?
Let me touch on a subject that leasing professionals try to dance around.
Apartments & Safety........ if you ask any leasing agent at any apartment about the safety of their apartment complex you will get a standard answer...we are not allowed to make any comment but you can go to the Austin Police Dept website and look it up.
Some folks hear that reply and may assume its not a safe place, but that is not what it means.
There is not an Apartment ANY WHERE that you can be guaranteed that you will be SAFE.
Crime knows no zip code, I live in what is considered a safe suburban area in a home, and occasionally crime still happens. There are things you can do like look up areas on crime reports, never take anyone's word that you don't know, and even if you do know and trust them, do your own research.
I have 4 children, there are areas I would let them live in and areas that I would not. I am from the Austin area and know it very well. I have spent 25 years walking the Austin TX streets as a United States Postal Service Mail Carrier, while even I can not guarantee safety any where, by sitting down with you and talking I think I can alleviate your fears.
Many Austin & Round Rock Apartments Locators are concerned with one thing, getting you leased somewhere.
As the Owner of this company I understand that is the only way the Apartment Locator makes money, however there should be a LOT more to it than getting someone leased. If any locator ever tells you that you will be safe in any apartment, run for the hills. There are places I feel a LOT safer at, there are apartments that I would recommend to my Sons, my Mother or you.
Have you ever looked through one of those Apartment Finder type books or ONLINE FREE DATA BASES?
Ever notice how ALL THE APARTMENTS LOOK REALLY NICE? They pay a lot of money to have professionals take the most favorable (touched up?) photos and to present them in the best possible way. I cant tell you how many times I receive a call from someone who rented site unseen through a website or a booklet only to find out in the first week after move in they made a horrible mistake.
If you want someone to be straight with you as much as the law allows, then please come in to see us.
There is more to consider than just Price & Specials when searching for your New Apartment.
