Update from me: Just got another letter to view one studio last week. I am the 8th for studio according to the letter. It was a 3rm studio and it was great; not sure if I can get it tho (probably not since there are 7 applicants in front of me). Haven't received a phone call or a letter about the result yet. This is the third time I received a letter to view an the apartment. Fingers crossed!

I was wondering why the price for the studio increases each time I was called to view the apartment. It's already a few thousand dollars more this month compare to when I was first called to view the apartment in Sept 2018. So I went and checked on the Penn South website and found out " The purchase price (equity) for each apartment is determined by the number of rooms. As of February 2019, the equity per room is $32,438.88. For example, the equity for a three-and-a-half room apartment would be $113,952.89. This amount increases monthly. "

Do any of you know the price increases monthly?

I'm not living there yet, but I know that they had a major HVAC overhaul within the last ten or so years, which made the prices go up, but I don't know about anything recently. Maybe there is a new project in the works? Just speculation on my part.

I hope you get the apartment! Good luck!

Good News! A month after we viewed the apartment we didn't think we would get a call but the office called us and offered us the studio!!! We scheduled to bring our paperwork to the office this week and I will provide further updates once I found out more. So excited!!!
