Pros of living in Cedar Fairmount:
– Very large one bedroom apartment with multiple areas for storage in the space
– There is a covered parking garage that is included in your rent
– WiFi is included in the rent and is really good WiFi
– There is only a $100 deposit to have a pet and no additional rent towards the pet (cats or dogs)
– Maintenance is very quick and they have an online portal for submitting requests
– There is a washer, dryer, and dishwasher in the unit
– There is free storage in the building
– The apartment is very quiet!
– It is a 15-20 minute walk to Case Western Reserve University
– There is a Dave’s Market across the street and many other local and chain restaurants in walking distance
– There is a little gym in the building though you have to pay $25 to be able to get a key and it was advertised as free

Cons of living in Cedar Fairmount:
– The electricity and gas bills are a bit outrageous during the winter months (around $200+ with the 2 combined)
– The parking garage is very VERY narrow and small and is truly an event trying to get in and out of it (I would not suggest having a larger car or a car that is low to the ground if you are considering living here)
– The washing machine is very odd; it works fine but you have to connect it to your sink and it splatters water everywhere as it is in use. Also, you can’t use the sink or dishwasher while using it
– The rent is fairly high for the age of the building ($900/ one bdr) but it is quite spacious and has some included utilities as mentioned above
– The heaters are base board heaters and it is tough to heat your apartment since the windows are very cold (though maintenance did put up a plastic covering for the cold but it still can be very chilly)
– The stove is pretty difficult because it is so old; there is no way of knowing how hot the stove is because there is no labeling on the knobs
– They only accept checks in a mailbox, no online portal for paying
