Price: Poor
It seems cheap until you start to realize all the little "fees" that accompany living here..
Spending close to $1200 for a two bedroom where you pay a $500 deposit, where $250 of that is non-refundable. If you have pets you are required to throw down another $500 deposit and $250 of that is non-refundable. Pretty lame... I've lived in apartments across the country and have never had to pay a non-refundable fee just to move in - instead they would examine the condition of the apartment at the end of the lease and give you a refund based on merit and condition left. Here you are automatically dinged $500 just to move in and live in the place.. Competing complexes located in the same area are far more competitive in pricing and have far more reasonable deposits accompanied with rent.
The rent seems cheap until you realize that utilities aren't included in the rent. The trash removal fee is about $14 dollars, the combination of gas/electric/water/sewer/trash comes out to be $100-$200 monthly - not much you can do there. But what is annoying is that your Water/Sewer/Trash is billed through a third party company separate from Evergreen Heights where you have to write a check and mail it to them if you want to escape the $7.50 "convenience fee" that is associated with paying directly online..

Apartment Condition: Poor
The condition of the apartment once we moved in was substandard. The apartment had bent and broken blinds, what little cabinets and shelves were there are in poor and deteriorating shape - often having bent up corners, doors coming off the hinges and the bottom of the cabinets look like they are about to fall from their shelving. We found an electrical socket that didn't work from the start (and no, it's not the socket that is connected to the light switch.) And the door knob to our backdoor decided to randomly fall off..
We found out that there is a gutter above our back patio that pours water all over our patio when it rains and a drainage pipe from the roof gutters that comes down to the ground next to our bedroom window that has a constant loud drip after it rains...
We had ants quickly infest the premises from some broken grout under our door and find our trashcan as soon as the weather warmed up, we bought ant traps which seems to have hindered them from entering.
Any review mentioning hearing everything (and I do mean everything) through the walls/ceiling is accurate. When I first read those reviews, I assumed it might be touchy neighbors and hearing noises in an apartment complex is pretty standard for most places, but it seems to be especially true here.. I've heard people having sex through the ceiling, could sing to the exact lyrics of a song I knew coming through the walls, and even could tell when someone was going to the bathroom and not just the flush, but the whole entire process...
Any review mentioning black mold is true. It didn't take long for Black Mold to appear in the bathroom, even though we always leave the fan on and the door open once we're done.
It was also surprising to see that the Bathroom didn't have a medicine cabinet in there to keep a toothbrush or much else, but instead a mirror that was tacked to the wall. One should note, especially if they have kids or like to take longer showers, that the water heater is quite small and you may find it easy to run out of hot water quickly and wait for the water heater to replenish - hasn't been a huge problem since there are only two of us, but it occasionally happens.
What was the most surprising about this apartment was that it didn't offer a microwave. Literally every apartment complex I have lived in had the simple microwave utility, but not this one for some reason.. And no, I'm not going to purchase one because a microwave is that standard in apartments and this complex is so off the norm that I'm not going to purchase one only have it sitting in storage after I move out of here because competing complexes actually meet this standard need..

Amenities: Poor-Fair
The amenities here are pretty underwhelming. They have a pool, but it's not like the weather in Seattle really behaves enough to enjoy it. It's nice to hang around, but the complex has a lot of kids and they're often at the pool, so it's not the best place to relax if that's what you are looking for.

When my roomate and I were looking for apartments over a year ago, these were the first we visited in the particular area. We liked them right off the bat, but continued to look around to compare price. These were by far the nicest for the money. There were actually other rentals in the area, that were not nearly as nice as more expensive.
The complex is pretty quiet, no rowdy tenants. It has a very nice pool and a resonable fitness center which closes at 6:00. I work during the day so I am only available to take advantage of the facility on the weekends.
The staff is pretty responsive. The few occasions we have needed assistance they have been quick and efficient in coming to the rescue.
