I am moving from Phoenix and need to live close to Troy so I am planing on renting an apartment at

Regents Park of Troy
Moderator cut: link removed, please read our terms of service

Its expensive (2K/Month) for a 3 bedroom and was wondering if its worth the price and if am making the correct choice for an apartment in that area.

That location should work well if you are going to be working in Troy. For that price though you may want to check out Birmingham which offers a very nice downtown area and is still very close to Troy.

Or you could look at Rochester Hills/Rochester. If you were interested in renting a house, you can get some really great deals for that price as well.

This is a beautiful complex; gated, landscaped, lot of amenities and great location. One that I will consider when I'm ready to give up homeownership for renting.

My grandmother lived in that complex for 3 or 4 years before she had to move in with us, and I can say from experience that the apartments are very nice. Expensive, yes, but very nice, in a nice area, with lots of great landscaping and amenities such as a pool and other things. I would recommend it!

Dang... that is a shovel-load of money for the Detroit area right now. For $2k per month you could be living VERY comfortably just about anywhere in Detroit, from West Bloomfield to Gross Pointe.

I guess though it depends on how much effort you want to put into a place... the kind of house you'd get for $2k/month is going to be 3000+sqft with yard/landscaping/etc. Meaning that's going to make extra work for you.

Anyway... you're going to love the area. Plenty of very good restaurants within a mile or so of you, ranging from the sports-bar places to Morton's or Ruth Chris' Steakhouse. Not much in the way of "local" spots along Big Beaver, but all the high-end national stuff is there. Somerset is of course ridiculously nice, as long as you can put up with the Abercrombie crowd (or is that Hollister now? I can't keep up). The City of Troy amenities (library, waterpark, gym, community center, etc) are all top-notch. Easy access to anything in the metro-area from I-75. Probably 20-30 minutes drive from there to anything downtown (ballparks, casinos, theaters, etc).

Troy really is a great area. Incredible stuff all very close, and right in the center of just about everything you could want.

(One downside... it's a long way from the airport. Plan on an hour at least along 275/696/75 to get around the city to Romulus.)

I moved into this apartment complex last month, at 2100/Month for a 3 bedroom its on the expensive side but its well worth it. The extra stuff you get like the club house, gym, pool, guest house, gated community etc etc it well worth the extra money.

We looked at getting a house but since me and my wife both work insane hours it was not worth it....at some point in our life we will buy a house.

The only bad part is the distance from the airport as you said. I work in NY so travel every week. The car service charges around $100 each way to drop and and pick me up from the airport but since I am not paying for it, I am not going to complain.

I would say you're overpaying by quite a bit. Keep in mind you can rent an entire HOUSE in Bloomfield Hills (100 times nicer than Troy) for $2,000/month.

You can get a very nice apartment in downtown Birmingham (50 times nicer than Troy) for $1,000/month.

That said, if you're happy, then there's no problem. I'm sure your landlord appreciates your business!
