  1. provide a way to flag obviously fake feedback

    I posted a review once for an apartment complex that was an absolute nightmare to live in, so I get emails every time a new review is posted. After months of mostly negative reviews, there are all of a sudden four positive reviews posted this week - five-star reviews without a single complaint! This seems EXTREMELY suspicious to me - pretty flagrant "ballot-stuffing" by the management - but there doesn't appear to be any way of flagging them as likely false. You can flag it as "removeable" but that's the closest you can get. A flag for "sock puppet" would…

    • verify if a poster has been evicted

      If someone is evicted than naturally they are going to try and diminish the property's reputation because they are disgruntled. I am sure that many people read the comments but have you ever thought of the people who actually write the comments? This website reminds me of ratemyprofessor.com because only people who had the absolute best or absolute worst experience are going to comment, and usually it is the ladder. If you ask an individual whose fault it is that they are or have been evicted, the majority of them will say that it is the landlords fault. Perhaps you…

      • Give apartments a fair shake!

        There have been some similar suggestions, but how about letting the apartments rate the residents who post crap. Let the apartments mention the condition of the apartment, post pictures, details of eviction, problems and make the posters to your site be responsible for what they say.

        • Start checking IP addresses of multiple reviews frm same ppl

          Management of so many apartments write reviews. Start checking that IP address. All managers have to do is sign up with an alternate email and write positive reviews of apartments, bumping up the ratings of their own place. It's not rocket science.

          • Screen your Ratings more Thoroughly...

            I am a manager at a privatly owned complex who has been personally defamed in a rating that I have put in a request several times to be removed but have been overlooked. I feel that because it is stated in your user agreement that defamation is not allowed, it is imperative that you remove comments such as these immediately.

            • Review several of the post for the Summer Brook Apartment in Fort Worth, TX.

              I don’t know how much good this will do but… If anyone at Apartmentratings.com should read this I would suggest that you evaluate several of the review being posted on the Summer Brook Apartment website. It is obvious that several of the recent negative reviews are being created by the same person. I understand that this is a rating site and that both negative and positive reviews should be allowed on this page but when someone goes out of their way to create a false identity in an attempt to lower the apartment complex’s ratings and the manager’s integrity I…

              • Please leave comments as they are...negative is the truth.

                ...completely truthful and candor. I am grateful that you have this site, I think you're the only one and not impeding on the first amendment. If I had known about this site, I would of never even live at Park La Brea Village Apartments, and now with every apartment I'm interested in, I look here first to see what was said and 99% of the posts negative or positive, they are true. P.S. these screening suggestions seems suspicious and perhaps coming from management.

                • Good lord, half of these reviews are fake.

                  This site is next to useless. There are so many reviews obviously written by apartment managment that it is a joke. You can see some of them are written on the same day or withing a few days of each other and use the same wording, or sound like marketing talk.

                  • Browse ratings by "people like me"

                    When users post their ratings, ask them what kind of renter they are (e.g. student, single professional, family with kids, retired, etc.) and then make it possible to filter reviews by these groups or see avg ratings by group.

                    • It is a shame that your site allows focus on negative.

                      It is shameful that your site basically promotes negative and not positives. It is basically human nature to post negative issues than to praise when positive things are happening. There are blatant lies and discriminatiry statements made and your site allows and tolerates it. I am personally offended that you have allowed these nasty statements to remain and even make it to your website to be seen. YOu all should be ashamed of yourselves!!!

                      • Wake up and change policies to allow more critical reviews!!

                        Time for Apartment Ratings to wake up and let tenants tell it like it really is.
                        No more limiting of tenants reviews!
                        No more erasing of tenants' statements unless they're obscene or ultra-obviously libelous. MOST aren't libelous, so stay on the side of the TENANT, not the lazy greedy apartment owners!
                        Make this site one of true benefit to renters!
                        Quit kissing the rumps of the apartment owning corporations, quit it!!
                        If you're going to kiss ass, kiss tenant's ass!

                            • add a bedbug (or other pest) sighting/infestation category

                              With the rising bedbug epidemic, many potential renters want to know about previous/current bedbug infestations. I know this potentially harmful to apt. communities, but after throwing away most of my possessions (due to bed bugs) last year, I would have appreciated some warning that the ENTIRE complex was infested.

                                  You should make it easier to change personal info ie: username.. You can change other things but not that.. So if I want to change my username I need to set up a new acct but then it tells me that my email is already in use.. Well I'm not going to change my email address just so I can change my username for your site..

                                  • Implement the Max Rent function

                                    Selecting any number of values from the Max Rent select box yields the same search results. It would be nice to look up places that are relatively inexpensive in an easier fashion than clicking on every apartment link and checking out Pricing.

                                          You leave your website just like it is. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with this site. Its wonderful that people can express their opinions, and say exactly what is on their mind when it comes to the buildings where they live. People would never know the truth about the places unless they read it here, so let it stay. It has provided a phenomenal service to thousands over the years.

                                          Keep this up. It’s wonderful.
