Why Reviews Are Important

Anyone who has been on the apartment hunt knows how valuable reviews can be in giving them a clear picture for what to expect of a new home. Your expert opinion can help others decide if this is the right place for them because it gives them real-life insights into all aspects of a community.


Tips for Writing Reviews

When it comes to apartment reviews, we think this article in Renter’s Voice sums it up nicely, ““Be sure to keep your review factually based and fair. People want to know the truth, not an exaggeration, because they are making important choices about their future and need to know what they can really expect.” Here are some more tips:

  • Stick to the facts. Strive to be specific, detailed, and objective. Present your experience as clearly and concisely as you can.

  • Check your spelling and grammar - use complete sentences and only single exclamation points — poor mechanics devalue what you are saying - (reader may think, this person can’t even take time to write correctly, how can I trust his or her opinion)

  • Even when — especially when — you’ve had a bad experience, make your case coherently, intelligently, and honestly - polite articulation is far more likely to get results than bombastic name calling.

  • Be balanced in your review. Granted there may be some issues you are bringing up, but also offer the positives in the situation.

  • Lifehacker has some detailed advice for writing Genuinely Useful Reviews. When it comes to writing a review for an apartment community consider topics such as safety of the area, grounds maintenance, daytime and nighttime activity, and responsiveness of management.
