What type of housing is Vistas? Is it low income housing?
Vistas is a subsidized housing community for seniors over the age of 62 and the mobility/sensory impaired. The term “subsidized housing” means that the rent is based on income. A resident of the community pays approximately 30% of their income as rent.
Who pays the remainder of rent?
The remainder of the rent is paid in the form of a subsidy. If a resident qualifies for a subsidy, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), a U.S. government agency, will pay the remainder of the rent.
How is rent calculated?
Resident rent is based on approximately 30% of income. A good estimate of your rent would be to take 30% of your gross annual income and divide it by 12 months. This will give you an estimate of what your monthly rent could be.
What does the rent include?
Monthly rental of the apartment, as well as heat, water and an electric allowance. An electric allowance is a certain amount taken off of the resident’s rent payment meant to help the resident pay the electric bill. The allowance amount is based on average usage for the apartment and may change annually. Residents will still receive an electric bill, but the allowance is intended to help pay for it. Residents may still be eligible for energy assistance from the state.
Is there a lease?
Yes, there is a one-year lease, but we understand the necessity of unanticipated move-outs.
How many apartments are there?
Vistas has 84 apartments.
How do I get started with the move in process?
Simply fill out an application completely, sign it and mail it to the address on the back of the application.
Is there a waiting list for residency?
Yes, currently Vistas has a waiting list. Please call for the approximate waiting time.
What is the Security Deposit?
The Security Deposit is the same as one month’s full rent (before the electric allowance) with a minimum of $50. This deposit is due in full at the signing of the lease.
Is there an elevator?
Yes, there are two elevators located in the center of the building easily accessible by all residents, on all floors.
Is parking available?
Yes, Vistas offers its residents the use of a gated parking lot.
What is the cost for parking?
There is no cost for parking.
How many keys do I receive?
Residents receive an apartment key, a key to a locked mailbox for their apartment, and an access key to the main entry. Our main entrances are intercom controlled and automatically open with the key.
Are there on-site laundry facilities?
There is one laundry center at Vistas. It contains four coin operated washers and four coin operated dryers with folding and hanging areas and a sink, plus a television for the convenience of our residents. This center is located on the ground floor.
What is the garbage/recycling process?
There is a garbage center on each floor of the building specifically for garbage/recycling purposes. Inside, there is a chute to dispose of trash directly into a dumpster. There are labeled bins for all recyclables.
