They're close to a wastewater treatment plant. That part of Fargo smells like poop sometimes.

Eh...well. Lol for $350/mo for a while until I get a job, that's something I can deal with. I guess I'm more concerned about things like bed bugs, roaches, residents going without heat for days because it's broken, etc. The apartment complex has an A+ BBB rating, but I can't find any reviews on it for some reason.

Trollwood Village has been traditionally marketed to seniors--at one time it may have had an age restriction for 55+, but I'm not sure that it still does. It serves as a senior meal program site, had a salon within the building, is a homebound outreach site for the Fargo Public Library, etc.
I have never heard anything about maintenance issues (unlike the Senior Highrise downtown).

I took a tour there the other day. They are nice, and you can rent a furnished efficiency for 40 a day while you scope things out 800 a month for a longer time.

Even the unfurnished at 450 or so is a good deal. The prices you see in apartment finder are out of date and low on all units.

Trollwood is in the isolated part of town, not close to Walmart, not close to the mall, to far to walk downtown, to far to walk to the college.

However, the place is quiet and clean. The parking garage is attached to the building so if you spring for the garage parking you can enter without going outside.

Finally, the price includes having someone come by and surface clean twice a month. While it might not be the cheapest, hippest or newest, it is a good deal for the right person.

Cheers

No nothing like that. There are cheaper places, however I am not convinced that they are better places. Today I live in a basement of a house closer to downtown. It is ok for me, but I can tell when the 95 pound lady upstairs walks across the room or cooks breakfast. My rent is 350 or so. No garage, but I like the area, and I get along with everyone here.

I too was wondering about the livability of these apartments. They used to advertise in the paper every day, then they stopped for a while. Now they have started up again. I am in the market for an a apartment, getting too old and ill to be a homeowner.
