Fieldstone Farm Blog, Odenton, MD Apartments  Being objective about the location, buildings, amenities, and neighbors never hurt for a review. Most people will appreciate the information. We have tips for writing reviews.


Chances are before you moved into your apartment at Fieldstone Farms you spent a lot of time reading reviews as part of your apartment search. Have you written a review since you moved in? If not, this is the post for you! Today, we are sharing tips for writing effective apartment reviews.


Why Write Reviews


Reviews benefit all parties involved: they give the writer a place to voice their experiences, they communicate to property management how residents feel about their communities and services, and they help prospective renters feel for what an apartment community is really like in person. Contribute to the conversation and help potential residents see that the apartment community is, in fact, real and reliable.


What to Include in a Review

  • For a balanced review include both pros and cons regarding your experience; also, make note of the fact that your experience may not be the same as someone else’s experience.

  • Check your spelling and grammar. When your review is full of errors, it detracts from its credibility. Use exclamation marks sparingly — one is sufficient at the end of the sentence.

  • Name calling is counterproductive. Stick to the facts and leave emotion out of it. Indicate what the issue is using times, places, and what actions were (or were not) taken to resolve the matter.


If you need ideas for how to frame the things you’re talking about, browse our website and see what’s already there so you can know where you can go into more depth to talk about the things potential residents might not be able to find on their own by visiting the site. Think about what life is like in real time and how problems have habitually been addressed. Talk about your experiences. Those are real to you, and they might be to others in the future. Just remember to give relevant details; be succinct in your writing so the review can be as helpful and easy to read as possible.
