    Great location. Quiet. Feels neighborhoody while still in the city. Best value I could find. The gym's been under renovation forever and heating in the pool/a hot tub would be sweet, but I don't mean to be picky. I recommend.

    Love Roosevelt Row! Great units in an amazing location. So close to a ton of new restaurants/bars and only a 10-15 min walk to downtown. The surrounding neighborhood is super safe & quiet. Only issue we've had is our refrigerator has broken 3x in the past 6 months

    I enjoy the location and the space itself.

    3.5/5 Anonymous on Dec 23, 2021

    Living at Seventh apartments for the past few months has been great so far. The only complaint I would have is the noise level at times but that isn't the fault of the apartment complex, it more has to do with the neighbors.

    Lindsey and Sequoia are amazing, kind, courteous and patient. The units are absolutely beautiful and neighbors are pretty friendly and helpful to one another. Love that the utilities are included and that the master suite in the 3 bedrooms has its own floor! Nice dog par, kids' activities, pool and community bbq park area.

    Lyndsey is AMAZING, AND ROGER IS BEST GROUNDSKEEPER EVER!

    I can afford it and I'm not on the streets. If anyone is complaining tell them to go f*** themselves. I appreciate you.

    Phoenix, AZ in the news

    Renter's guide to Phoenix, AZ

    Located in central Arizona, Phoenix is the state’s capital city. Its metropolitan area, often called the Valley of the Sun, also includes nearby towns like Mesa, Chandler, Scottsdale, and Tempe. Phoenix is known for its subtropical desert climate, thanks to its location right along the northeastern side of the Sonoran Desert. It is the cultural center of Arizona.

    As the largest city in Arizona, Phoenix boasts a desert-like feel with all the amenities of a big city. It is the 5th fastest growing city in the entire nation, having added approx. 25,000 residents from 2014 to 2015.

    Boasting more than 1.5 million residents, Phoenix is the sixth-most populous city in the U.S. and the single largest city in Arizona. Phoenix proper encompasses 517 square miles of land – making it about 4 times the size of Las Vegas - while the entirety of the Phoenix metropolitan area includes more than 14,000 square miles.

    There are many big cities within driving distance of Phoenix. Las Vegas is about 300 miles away, making it a mere few hours’ drive between the cities. From nearby Sedona and Tucson, it’s only about 100 miles, and from Dallas, Phoenix is 1,000 miles – or a 15-hour drive. For further distances, the Phoenix airport – Phoenix Sky Harbor International – offers national and international flights on more than 15 airlines.

    Phoenix has a desert climate, meaning it has long, hot summers and short, very mild winter seasons. In the summer (June-September), temperatures average from 104 to 100. Winter, spring, and fall are slightly cooler, averaging between 66 and 95. On average, Phoenix has more 100-plus degree days than any other city in the country. It has very little rainfall.

    Tips for renting in Phoenix, AZ

    Phoenix renters are protected under the Residential Landlord & Tenant Act, which defines landlord and tenant obligations and prohibits landlords from retaliating against their renters. The city also offers landlord-tenant counseling and free educational workshops for renters.

    If you’re moving from Dallas to Phoenix, you might be surprised to learn that security deposits are capped. Landlords can only charge you 1.5 month’s rent and it must be returned within 14 days after moving out. In Texas, there is no limit to security deposits, and they can be returned as late as 30 days after move-out.

    Living in Phoenix – Pros and Cons
    Like any city, Phoenix has its pros and cons. On the good side, it’s always sunny and rarely ever rainy, there are few bugs and in-home pests, and it’s close to Nevada, New Mexico, and California, making road trips and vacations a breeze. The city is also known for having very clean roads and a great selection of restaurants and shops.

    The hot temperatures and arid climate are the city’s main disadvantages, as they make the summer season pretty uncomfortable for many residents. Many in Phoenix also yearn for the foliage and flora often seen in other major cities.
