First, let me say that Bailey-Foristell is by far the worst property rental company I have ever signed a lease with, and I've had many landlords across the country. In a word, they're slumlords who will try to take your deposit. The property manage has flat-out told me that his business model does not include communication with tenants. He expects his tenants to take responsibility for things like the furnace. So you can rent one of their places and if the furnace and central air unit breaks, you're out a few grand (even though people rent to protect themselves from that). Their staff has been belittling, even telling my fiancÚ that she should "consider this practice for owing a house," even though we have no desire to own a house at this point. They changed costs via email. We had to clean the place ourselves, and then we found fleas. Instead of sending an exterminator immediately, they told us we needed to hire one and pay for it ourselves. In fact, the property manager now claims that we are lairs and that we didn't even take care of the house or the yard despite all the bags of yard waste and leaving a lawnmower for the next tenets (not to mention all the work we put into the house). They've been difficult and distant every step of the way. I would never recommend dealing with them, no matter how nice the property seems. Find a landlord who respects and values tenants.
