This place is hell the burn crosses in ppls grass . Someone got hung awhile back and nothing was done about it. Someone also got stab and nothing was did. You go without water for weeks but still have to pay your water bill wich they control. The lot rent goes up a 100 bucks every year. They also have a pool that's field with dead animals and rain water that cause all type of bugs to bite you all year long. Not to mention it's month to month and they can put you out at any time even if you own the house. This by Far is the money hungry folks I ever been in contact with in my life. They just take and never return and don't fix anything all they won't is your money and then the6 wash there hands of you don't waste of time don't do it trust me what everyone is saying on here is true. This is not a safe place to live for anyone.

Do not buy here! They advertise... Luxury Living haaahahaha. The management company is EXTREMELY rude to 90% of the ppl they come in contact with (stand in the office at any day and time and see at least 8 ppl a day come in complaining and listen to how things are handled). They only enforce community rules when it suits them and to only certain ppl!!! They dont do anything about the break ins, the squatters, or the houses selling drugs even tho they are aware. The lot fees are higher than any other area and you get nothing in return but ignorance from staff for the money that you pay. The things they will tell you to get you to buy are outrageous!! all we got were lies. check out other negative reviews...they are true! visit with a couple residents and ask. I take good care of my house and the property it is on as it looked like trash before I moved in and I wasted my money buying here!

We are three months new and the atmosphere is quite. No disturbances or rowdy teenagers, the neighbors are nice the children have manners and management is really helpful.
I researched the area and asked lots of questions before I moved in with my family. Lots of good responses. Then? I checked the online reviews and Whoa Nelly!! Really negative but it dawned on me. Maybe these folks were having issues because of the type of tenants they are. Who knows! and it doesn??t hurt to try.
The neighbors are friendly and everyone minds their own business. LOVE IT!
Every time I had a question, concern or issue management helped without failure. DOUBLE LOVE IT!!!
If I had to complain, I wouldn??t.

I moved in this place in 2010. We were told is was secure and that they didn't let anyone in with a criminal record (they said they did background checks). Now, I had hesitations moving in, but disparate times called for desperate measures. The place is under new management and though they are trying to fix the streets somewhat and do maintenance on the exterior of the park like cutting trees, it seems getting anyone to fix anything is like pulling teeth. We are renting our mobile home and it is an older model. They are responsible for all maintenance yet it takes them longer to get one thing like a leaky pipe fixed than anything else. I am disappointed with this park. I knew the woman that rented to us was full of it but she really went the extra mile in trying to get us in a home.
I am disappointed to say the least with their attitude over fixing things. Their maintenance guys even tell me how crappy some of these homes are and the amount of work that is going into fixing them with the minimalist of quality parts.
Another key thing is that it isn't to much as a ghetto but more of a mix. There is a bit of white trash thrown in for good measure. Would I recommend someone live here? If you are single and it's temporary then sure why not. I don't plan on staying more that 5 years

I moved into SE in 2007, when it was a decent place. Since then, things have changed. They have moved in people who have set vacant homes on fire, broken windows, shot paintball guns which destroyed the siding on people's homes, broken into homes, attempted to break into homes, and set the park's slide on fire. This is supposed to be a gated community, but there are no gates at the entrance. The pool is normally closed. The streets are in disrepair. The park has been sold to another owner and is under the management of another company, which sucks. The person who answers the phones is always unable to answer questions because he claims to not know the answers to any of the questions asked. The lot rental is at a current base of $791 and increases each year by twenty-five dollars. There are rolling blackouts, and the water is shut off at least three times a year for a minimum of 72 hours each time. People have stolen trashcan lids, and the management does nothing about any of the problems. With all the issues, SE has the audacity to request people refer others to move in here. I would not recommend anyone to live here. As a homeowner, not renter, I am currently looking into options. SE may tell you that the lot rental is relatively inexpensive, but that is a lie. Other parks have lot rentals that are less than $600, and the management companies actually work to keep the communities decent. STERLING ESTATE SUCKS!!!! If you are considering moving here, RECONSIDER!!!

This park is finally turning around. The new management has been helping fix the streets and brought in new security. I hope they keep it up and I am looking forward to the NEW sterling estates. I see new faces in the office and they all seem to be very helpfull.

When I first moved into Sterling around 5 years ago I was for the most part happy and things seemed to be going well for the place. But that was then this is now. I would NOT recommend this place to anyone while I LOVE my home the park is a joke over 750 for base lot rent and it goes up every year. The residents are receiving NOTHING for this exorbitant amount. Someone set the new kids park on fire last year and the old park in the back is nothing but a good place for all the troublemakers to hang out. We were told several years ago that a new olympic size pool would be put in and this year the trashy pool we had was not even open. I do not see the need for the massive club house they built while yes it's beautiful the rest of the park it is not. Many many vacant lot's and homes. The vacant homes are now being pulled because they have filed for bankruptcy which they did not even inform the residents of. While yes we do have a bit more freedom than some other places 766 base rent is insane. The pot holes from the winter were finally somewhat filled over the summer and not even all of them. They harass resident's who are in good standing while overlooking the ones who are causing issues and bringing in pit bulls and various other animals and letting them run wild! So many stray cats I can't even believe it! This place is a sad far cry from what I moved into a few years ago and cannot wait to get out. While it will be devastating to leave my beautiful more than 1200 sq foot home they leave people with NO choice by charging such crazy amounts and not returning the quality of service we deserve and pay for.

I have lived in Sterling Estates for 12 years. Yes, they did file bankruptcy on May 17, 2010. That's when, if you notice, all work in the Park stopped. The biggest complaint I have is the exorbitant rent. I now pay $766 a month. Capital First tells you, "That's less than you would pay for an apartment." Yes, but in an apartment, I WOULD NOT OWN the plumbing, roof, hot water tank, etc., to have to pay repairs. The landlord would have to pay for all of it. Here in Sterling, all I can see that I'm getting for my money is some sewer and water connections and a paved driveway (or street, if that's what you want to call it). The exorbitant rent keeps people from buying new homes, because they can't afford the loan and the rent. So, the Park rents homes to less than desirable people. Their new policy of trashing every old home has backfired--this place looks like a war zone with so many empty lots. Then, they have to keep bleeding the renters who are still here to pay for their fancy office building. What was wrong with the old one? And, no pool this year. Shame, shame. They say there's a crack in the bottom. Well, fix it! Poor kids! Again, WHAT ARE WE GETTING FOR OUR HIGH RENT? We should all get two hundred dollars knocked off of our rent, since there are so few houses left for which the park has to provide services. When I first moved here 12 years ago, it was nice. And, we had a REAL security system, with round-the-clock guards. NO ONE could get in without permission. Folks, whose pockets are we lining? For one, the CEO of Capital First. Did you know that several years ago he had an engagement party which cost him $1,000,000? Where do you think that came from? From we poor shnooks paying high rent. Capital, if you're reading this, LOWER OUR RENTS, and the rest of the Park's problems will start taking care of themselves.

I am sooooo glad that I came on Google and researched the reviews of this place. I was just apartment hunting over the weekend and saw this place, at first, i didn't even know they were trailers and i even called and spoke to someone and set up an appointment to come in this Sunday and the women NEVER told me that this was a trailer park!!! Thank you all for taking the time to write these reviews and warn others! Because of your sympathy for others looking to move in, you just saved another family from moving into the place! Thank you all! I will be cancelling my appointment on Sunday, August 15th. And just to let you know, the five star rating I gave was for the people that wrote the reviews! Not for Sterling!!!!

To the folks that rave that this such is a great place to live, you either work for the property, or you're related to those that work here. To those that say "shut your mouths" for voicing our opinions, well, it's a review, therefore we all have a right to speak our minds on what we think of Sterling. Hopefully things will change for the better since the Property Mgr was transferred to a different location. (Good luck to that park!) Maybe they need to start doing detailed background checks before letting people move in. That's where all the bad apples come from, but Sterling is too darn greedy & are only looking to make another buck instead of looking out for the current residents who want to make the place a more safer environment to live. I hope management will realize there's more bad reviews then good & maybe they'll stop writing their own reviews to make themselves look good. God forbid if they don't make their quotas or get themselves a nice bonus when they're stealing the community's money!! Do your job & put the people first & not yourselves or your wallets!!!

Im 14 and lived in justice for my whole life. Ive recently moved out though. The truth behind sterling estates is that its the worst place ever. When i was 5 i used to get jumped by punks. Ive had 4 of my bikes stolen and my bedroom windows have been broken a couple times. And the worst pArt is that this wasnt just because of who i was it was all completely random. You can ask anyone and i bet 2/3 of them have had this happen to them. Yes kids do hangout in tje mailboxes and im one who used to. But none smoke. Theres not any good places to hangout for teenagers. If we go in their new park they say were to old and we willbreak the equipment. If we hangout by the pond were told to leave by the psycho lady who lices next to it. The backpark is usually full of older teens so we just walk around. But god forbid if a maintenance guy finds you walking around they think your up to something and will call the cops. Half the people wgo live here are crazy and the othwr half are scared. I used to be to. And right across te street from our old trailer there was a bunch of hicks who would stay up drinking until 3am and then they would start fighting so loud. It used to wake me up and i was scared a rock was going to fly through my window. This isnt even the half of the story but what i can tell you stay away from sterling.

Been @ Sterling Estates for 10 years - was nice then but now it's the worse place you would ever want to live. It's because of their management - Ryan Grace - he's the worst manager ever. We got an eviction notice from him. Never been late or missed paying our rent in 10 years. We keep our lot clean and abide by all the rules and regulations. We've filled out complaint forms for the same complaints over and over and they still are not addressed. Can't take much more - so my husband went to the office and told him that he needs to get on all these problems everyone is having and take care of them. The next day, because he and my hubby had words, we get an eviction notice taped to our door. We were home, they just didn't knock cause I guess they
re scared to face you in person. Anyway, we have a court date one Friday @ 9:30 in Room 203 Bridgeview courthouse. Whomever would like to meet us up there, maybe we can get somewhere with the judge with all our problems. Cause we intend to get help for all of us living here.

The lot rental is at a current base of $791 and increases each year by twenty-five dollars. There are rolling blackouts, and the water is shut off at least three times a year for a minimum of 72 hours each time. People have stolen trashcan lids, and the management does nothing about any of the problems. With all the issues, SE has the audacity to request people refer others to move in here. I would not recommend anyone to live here. As a homeowner, not renter, I am currently looking into options. SE may tell you that the lot rental is relatively inexpensive, but that is a lie. Other parks have lot rentals that are less than $600, and the management companies actually work to keep the communities decent. STERLING ESTATE SUCKS!!!! If you are considering moving here, RECONSIDER!!!

I moved into SE in 2007, when it was a decent place. Since then, things have changed. They have moved in people who have set vacant homes on fire, broken windows, shot paintball guns which destroyed the siding on people's homes, broken into homes, attempted to break into homes, and set the park's slide on fire. This is supposed to be a gated community, but there are no gates at the entrance. The pool is normally closed. The streets are in disrepair.

i have lived here since july 2011 i bought my trailer and when i did she said she has title in hand guess what i still dont have my title. SHE LIED. this place sucks big hairy donkey dick, i know we have been late a couple times with our 818.00 dollar a month land rent yes 818.00 a month for dirt. i cant take my son to the park here cause people sit and smoke happy sticks and swear and the teenagers sell drugs there and i dont want my son around it. when you are late with the dirt payment they run to the courts and file papers to get you out then they charge you over 600.00 for legal fees just for that. it is not a safe place for kids. i cant wait to save enough money to get the hell out of here. all they do is lie to you. when we came here to look at this place the tub was not broke but the day we came to move in it was cracked in 3 places we were told they would replace it (never did). still broke cant use it. there was a screen door when we came to look at it. but when we game to move in it was gone i had to buy one for 149.00. and have it put in. the handymen they hired in here drilled screws in our pipes and we had to replace that also. so if you are thinking about buying here DONT TURN AND RUN DONT BUY HERE THEY WILL LIE TO YOU FROM START TO FINISH. dont bring your kids here it is not safe. And they will treat you like poop after you buy. 818.00 for land rent is just to high. and the lies are to big and its just to get you in here then once your in they dont listen to anything you got to say. they will treat you like poop

I live in Sterling Estates in Justice, Il. They have turned off the water here. It has been done before for three days and channel 2 came out to investigate. They so happened to get the water right back on. Now today they put up a boil watter notice, but THERE IS NO WATER. Its five in the evening here and there are no trucks or workers in site to fix this. So it will be day two with the water off. Please send a team some one out to really investigate the owner is not what he says, he doesn't keep up his land for living. There are older residents and children here, its cold out and people have to leave there homes where they are paying and have no water. Again please help. Thank you.

This place sucks!! We were told that there was a pool and a clubhouse and there wasn't. The pool and clubhouse is all boarded up. The park they have is not a safe place for children to play with the gangs around. It seem every night we heard gunshots and fights. There was people walking though the yard and our car got broking into. The gates are always open no sercurityand when there was he was always at someone house drinking. If you dont care about the safety of u and your family than this is the perfect place for you!!

This place is a total joke.. i moved in two years ago with a home as a rent to buy.. they promised to fix the screens and windows along with other things and it never happened.. when my lease was up i was talked into buyin a home by the salesperson.. who promised things would be different and everything would be done.. so in feb 2010 i signed on a nice 3 bdrm home which was promised to be ready and all set up by april 15th... its now dec my still isnt ready or able to be moved in... i had to higher a lawyer and jump thru hoops in order to be released out of the garbage deal i was in... the staff at sterling estates buts all the blame on some kinda of reorganization and they have no money to fix the homes that were sold... ok so then this leads to one more question y are you still selling homes.. this is not only me the sales person showed me a stack of files with homes that are not completed if you talk to anyone talk to the ppl that live there each one has a story that will make you understand whats really going on at sterling estates.. all they care about is getting you hard earned money,, other then that they have no care to fix what needs to be fixed.. or do whats right.. this company needs to look into who they are highering to run there buisness cause they sure dont have any idea on how to do so if you your lookin to buy or rent here i would say dont unless you want headaches and problems.. all theses reviews are true.. the ppl that are giving good feed back are ppl that work there.. again if you dont believe it dont talk to the park talk to the residents they will tell you the TRUTH

I feel sorry for the people that think this place is a safe and nice place to live. Last I checked, any and everyone can get in the park, the gates have been broken for months and it doesn't seem like they will ever be fixed! All kinds of pitbull dogs running wild, and housesburning down. I've had repairs that needed to be done since day one and no one has gotten back to me, but they expect me to pay lot rent, which by the way went up AGAIN! My cousin lived here, and they made her move down the street 4 years ago. I've been here for two years, and the streets broke my car. This place is a complate joke. The news was even here talkng about KKK fliers or some crap, and they want me to raise my family here? Everytime I call the office, they take a message and I never hear from any of those boneheads in the office. It's hot and summertime, and we waited so long for a pool. All I got to say is that it's a trap, and don't buy here, you're better off in an apartment down the street, that's where I'm going!

I moved here about 4years ago. The home was left to me after a family member passed away. Me and my husband Planned on fixing up the home and moving since we wanted to start a family and we needed a bigger place. I have had family living in Sterling for 18yrs and boy has it changed. I agree with the people on here saying you get what you pay for but Sterling has a lot of issues they need to take care of. How come everyone pays a different lot fee?? And I'm sure I'm not the only one who has noticed a "change" in the types of people moving in. There is so much violence and I will not raise my son here. We are trying to sell hopefully it goes soon since were pretty much giving it away and the other older homes for sale in here all smell and are dirty. We are very clean and have fixed up our lot and our home. They need to get rid of the scum. I understand its a trailer park but seriously some people are so dirty they need to filter the trashy people out and maybe the park would look better. Don't even bother calling the office for ANYTHING cause they will blame everything on you and make u feel like a piece of crap. We have never been late on Lot fee, our lot is one of the cleanest, and we take pride in our home but yet were treated like crap the few times we have had issues with the Scum kids who roam around ruining things and doing drugs. I understand it's not the parks fault someone burnt down the playground but its not our fault either. We pay to be able to have a playground and a pool which why isnt the pool open this year. Hmmmmm lemme guess something is wrong with it. The roads are Horrible and the severe pot holes have cause damage to my car. They claim they have money issues NEWS FLASH so does everyone else if you can't afford to live up to what you are advertising then either sell or stop promising things that are never gunna happen. I hope everyone saw the news about a week ago (channel 2) there has been some racial things going on. The park responded that they were gunna get more security It's been a week and havent seen any security let alone more. The gate is broke 85% of the time so why even have them?? Hopefully I get out before the whole park turns into section 8 like it is starting to.

I have never written a review about anything. But, with all the talk in the neighborhood, I just had to say something! Yes, the place is not perfect, but what place is???? I have lived here for close to two years and the owner has done a lot! We bought a nice home, for a price we could afford! And yes, we did buy a brand new home. For those of you that are living in the old mobile homes, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!!!! It's not the owner's fault that this is all you can afford! I love my home and get along fine with my neighbors. I think if you are a trouble maker, you will find trouble anywhere you go! But, for those of us that lead a quiet life style and don't want the inconveniences of an apartment, this is a great place!

As noted, so long as Capital First has its hands in this place, it will continue to deteriorate. It's historical. You will not get people in here with the high levels of income needed for the homes they're trying to sell. If someone can afford a home for 120,000 - 190,000, they will go stick built. Why would you live in a $190,000 manufactured home with no garage on a lot with only room for one car in a small driveway? No carports, no protection for your vehicle? No basements, no attics.

Try to talk to people who live here before you make a decision to buy. I wouldn't tell you what to do as far as making a decision to buy here, but make sure you heavily weigh the pros and cons. It is very expensive. Manufactured homes do not hold up as well as stick built. The pipes and frames get old, loose, and leak, generally 10-15 years before stick built. Look it up. As salesmen go, the ones here will also promise you anything. Even if you have it in writing, promises will not be fulfilled. Your paperwork will mysteriously "disappear" from your file. Not kidding. When you get your closing packet, documents will be missing that pertain to contractual agreements on promises made. DO NOT walk out of the office without copies of everything you agree to and have signed. I made the mistake of trusting the sales manager because the copy machine was "broken."

The positive ads here are written by staff and/or family of staff. Why wouldn't they? I have been here 2 years and have talked to approximately 200 of the residents. In that many people, which is about 1/4 of the population here, not one had a good thing to say about Sterling Estates. Very unhappy. Again, make up your own minds but BUYER BEWARE IN EXTREMUS!

When I can, I'm outta here folks.

I can't believe you are living in a trailer park and complaining that it isn't a 4 star experience. Have any of you lived in another trailer park? There is no way you have because otherwise you would know they are soo bad. This is one of the largest parks in the midwest for a reason. Also, why are people complaining that they get into deals they can't handle and rent goes up? Helloooo, the park isn't owned by your parents, so why do you think contractual laws don't apply to you and rents don't get raised? If you sign up for something you can't handle, shame on you. I have lived in Sterling for years and having been in other parks, I know the difference. If you want something for nothing, move back into your parents house... Of course there are some bad people here, call the police if you want them out. Again a reference to the above parents comment. If you lived in a regular house and you saw something illegal, who would you call, rightttttt the police!!! They can't control every person that comes in that door. People buy a house and then let their bad family members move in on the side. They put in a nice play lot a few years ago and they don't have to do that (not to mention some people continue to ruin it). The pool yeah, I wish it would happen but it hasn't. Times are tough.

I lived in mobile home parks my whole life. And let me tell you they look nothing even close to this one. I moved here about two years ago and i never seen such a nicer park my whole life. We have not only mobile homes here but manufacture homes. They have over 2000 square feet some of them. Go find a another park that has that. Most of the people that i think complain are the ones that shouldnt be here in the first place. Agree park is changing and the little higher lot fee keeps people that shouldnt be living here out.

Pros: two thumbs up

I lived in that park for 12 years. Moved out over 2 years ago and bought a home. When I first moved in, it was a nice place, but it has gone down drastically. Unfortunately my ex now lives in the home with his parents and my daughter is there every other weekend. Everytime I drive into the park I want to get sick!!!!! I recently found out one of my friends is moving back into the Park, I begged her not to do it. I feel sorry for everyone that buys there, cause you won't get out unless you walk away, all your money lost. I pray everyday that my friend changes her mind, even though I know it won't happen. You pay soooo much money for lot rent and what do they do for you???? Nothing. It was very dangerous driving down the streets after we got all that snow and ice. Security gates, thats a joke they a broke probably 50% of the time, might be a good idea to buy stock in those gates, cause they sure go through them. I can keep going and going about this place, I'm so glad I got out and yes I had to walk away, lost all money I put into it.

Pros: Good School District

Cons: Too many to list

At first we were impressed by this place. We looked at "homes" and found one we liked. We asked the price and was told they need it from the home office. We placed a $1000.00 deposit. Boy were we surprised when we finally got the price,(weeks later) which was totally out of the ball park. Then the financing. This is the clincher. They make you feel like they care, your credit is not so good...but we (Sterling) can help. Yes help to bury you into a debt that you will never be rid of. A 25 yr loan with adjustable rates and a balloon payment at the end! The balloon payment at the end far exceeds what the value of the trailer (yes folks I said the "T" word) is worth. Sterling is in bed with Capitol First Realty (which also has several other companies under its name). They claim that their home office Capitol First Realty makes all the prices on the homes. Common sense would tell you that the sales people would know the price before they even show the place. Then the monthly lot rent (this is where they are digging into your pockets with both hands) is way to high for what your getting. The staff is also rude and ignorant. I witnessed an employee yelling at an elderly couple for being late on lot rent.

To date we have NOT recieved out deposit back...again with the home office confusion. An additional heads up folks one of the reviews written was by a sales man wife. Go figure

Run don't walk away from this place. If you need a place to live find an apartment or realy try to save for it. Please dont get sucked into believing that they care.

Pros: The sales people are pros at taking your money

Cons: The whole company is run by cons

I dont know why so many people complain about this park but all around the place is a pretty nice place to live. Maybe they should visit some of the other parks in the area then they wouldnt think sterling was so bad. You get pretty good lot space and the park keeps pretty good tabs on people as far as who should and shouldnt be living here. I noticed some of the older homes our getting purchased by a middle class working people and they are doing a nice job on remodeling them. I do agree lot rent is a little high but maybe sterling will use some of that money to keep the place looking nice.

We wanted a good place that was affordable, and after shopping around, we agreed, Sterling was it. They check resident's backgrounds, provide security and if a baddie slips in, they show them the exit door - we like that peace of mind! I think those who may speak ill may have been shown the exit, and are jealous they can't live here any more. This isn't for everyone, this is for good people who want a good life without a huge price tag.

I have lived in sterling estates for the past 9 yrs and I have had nothing but problems with everything from gng bangers to management. I would recommend to anyone that they STAY OUT of this community!! They spend so much money on making their office a multi-million dollar office, but what have they done for the actual residents that PAY to make all that possible for them?? NOTHING! They built a new playground which is great for the residents that have small children, but most of the residents here dont. They have been promising a new olympic sized swimming pool for the past 4 years that we have yet to see...and even if we did see one half the residents wouldnt be allowed a pass for the pool. You have to have a ZERO balance with the office on your lot rent and everything else in order to get a pass and at the price they charge for lot rent, which by the way increases EVERY YEAR, not many can afford to even enjoy the run-down half-the time-shut down by the health dept swimming pool that they do have here. The management refuses to let the residents know about problems, SERIOUS problems that occur in the park. They keep everything under wraps. As residents I feel we have a right to know that someone got stabbed, shot or murdered right in out SECURE community where we all live and have children. Cars get broken into all the time, lawn furniture stolen right off your deck, kids that vandalize your property or decorations that you have on your property and management does nothing about it. Moving sounds like an option doesnt it? Think again because in order to keep up with the increasing lot rent there is no room for "saving your dollars" to get out. Thats the reason that most residents are forced to abandon their homes here that they have lived in for years. Take my advice, I have lived here 9 years and wish I had never layed eyes on this place.

I lived in Sterling Estates for 3 years in the mid 90's, & I did not like it at all. Thankfully, I've gotten out of there since, but unfortunately my two daughters still live there w/ their mother who is the Property Manager. I still have friends who also live there & aren't too happy, & they complain about the abandoned trailers, the young punks that walk around, & how the cost of rent has increased drastically. I think it was much better then compared to now because there's so many empty spaces, & it's a hassel just to get into the front gates. That really boggles my mind, because what's the senst of having a gated community in a trailer park?? These aren't couple hundred thousand dollar homes, they're trailers! And what is so hypocritical is that you have this beautiful Club House w/ nice landscaping, yet you drive further into the park & it looks like a hell hole! It's very deceiving on the outside. I think they should've taken some of that money & cleaned the place up or lowered the rent. You might get more people to occupy the empty lots. My advice to whomever lives there, save up your dollars & go buy an actual house. You figure the amount you pay on your trailer & the cost of rent equals a mortgage on a house. Trailers depreciate in value just like an automobile & you also don't have the advantage of claiming your property come tax season. You're just making the owner gain more money.

Pros: Close to the expressway

Cons: High rent, poor management, & poor maintenance.

I agree with the other review. Avoid this park. They keep raising the rent but not bettering anything. Gated community?? yeah only between the times that the gate gets broken. The gates are broken at least once a day. Teenagers are walking around causing trouble all hours of the night. Cars get broken into, houses that are not lived in get broken into by the teenagers and trashed. This is not a nice park by any means. The managers do nothing about all the trouble they think the little bit of things they do is going to make it worth the rent.I do not think so!!

I lived in sterling estatesfor 11 years, the first few years were great. Then new management took over.To put it simple, we have open gas lines going across the yards, just look for yourself at 836 Victory lane. You also have wannna be cops who harrass people for no reason at all.You also had a cop convicted of molesting a 14 year girl. You have maintaintenace people who show up whenever they want. This is no place to raise your children. Nothihg but gangbangers and punks who think their bad but their not, and people killing themselves. Ask yourself this question , do you really want to live here.
