Please make sure that you have all bicycles and other transportation items chained, locked and secured when left on your patios for storage. We have been made aware of bicycles in the area that have gone missing. Also, our courtesy officer has informed us that the W-S and Clemmons areas have had a lot of “chance thefts” from vehicles where doors have been left unlocked and belongings have been stolen. Please take care to lock all of your vehicle doors, at all times.

· As you turn your HVAC systems over to heat entering the cooler fall months, it is common for there to be burning smell and often smoke alarms beeping as the dust that has accumulated since last season clears out of the vents. Do not be alarmed, this is perfectly normal! If the smell persists, or you feel there are other issues, please give the office a call.
· Flip the switch at the base of your ceiling fans to a counter-clockwise rotation to maximize the circulation of your heat.
· Set your thermostat on a moderate temperature and leave it. You will save money on your energy bill because your heat doesn’t have to work as hard when it just has to maintain a constant temperature.
Today, only 12% of renters are leaving to buy homes, and that number is expected to continue to decline. Renting has become an economic and lifestyle choice for more than half (57%) of those under the age of 34 and 46% of those under the age of 45. It seems the United States population favors apartment living, and according to the National Apartment Association (NAA), that will be the case for decades to come.
In the future though, apartment living won’t be a sacrifice; instead we imagine self-repairing appliances, alternative energy sources, and adjustable square-footage for city dwellers everywhere. Take a look at what we believe just might be the average standard of living in a city.
