Love an apartment, but the ratings are terrible online, what do I do?

I found an apartment I really like, at the price I want, in the location I want, but the reviews online say that there are many problems with AC/Heat, water system and washer dryer units. Is there any way I can approach the leasing office with those poor reviews and get some kind of real assurance that those problems are fixed or maybe have the lease modified so we can get reimbursed if those sorts of problems occur, or should I just pass on it?

How can I delegate apartment-hunting in Cincinnati?

I need to find an apartment meeting a specific set of requirements ASAP in Cincinnati, Ohio. Unfortunately, I literally do not have any time to spend doing this myself. Is there a broker, independent realtor, or some other kind of service where I can send them into the world and they will hustle up some acceptable places to live for me ... for a modest fee?

Help me navigate my anxiety over life changes good and bad

Hello, folks. My overthinking tendencies are working overtime as I try to navigate the next few months of my life (job/apartment change, travel?) amidst the fallout of the last few months of my life (end of long term relationship). I can't tell if I'm biting off more than I can chew or if I'm just standing in my own way. [more inside]

Where should I live: Richmond, VA edition

I may be relocating to Richmond for work soon and have been trying to get a read on where to live in the city. After reading this previously I wanted to see what's changed in the last 6 years. The most important things to me in an apartment are: safety, kitchen space, and quiet. I tend to work long hours and like my apt to be the place that I can finally relax in. Thanks in advance!
