We are moving to the Villages Of Lake Boone Trail soon. We are quite people who keep to ourselves . We sold our 4br home in MA n wanted to live in an areas close to everything to help us get familiar with Raleigh then after our lease is up in 12mths maybe move to Cary beacause by then we will have jobs n an idea of our budget.

Believe they are affectionately referred to as palmetto bugs this side of the MAson-Dixon...

They are renovating so maybe get a new unit? Not sure if they have bugs and not sure if that would help... Do you like their price point, location, or what? Then maybe we could give you recommendations of other places to check out, too, unless you know that's where you definitely want to live. I actually considered them as well, but chose another place before looking at Villages. Next door, for more money, is Grand Reserve (or something like that). I've always thought they were pretty, and probably cleaner.

Everything you read online is only the negatives. People tend to only comment when they have negative comments. I've never known anyone to say, "hey, that lease was awesome, I'm going to post a positive review". I've only heard, "ARRGGGGGG that place sucks I'm going to slam them on the internet!!!".

Your best bet is to check the place out beforehand. Since you're moving from out of town, that's probably not possible though.

Those are probably the palmetto bugs that look like giant roaches. Apartment complexes and houses with a lot of trees around them are going to have this problem. The only places I have lived where I did not see these bugs were homes with no tree cover.
