So this is another way to judge how good an apartment is. Again, it is tough to tell if a place is worthwhile without talking to some people that live there currently. These places may only be good at winning awards, but it is probably a good bet they don’t totally suck.
These places won awards based on staff and staff designations, physical/visual inspection and a blind shop of the property. Judges for the staff and physical inspection categories were members of the Austin Apartment Association. The blind shop was performed by an independent entity.
