The average rating is a weighted calculation based on the rating categories. It allows us to weight a category with more importance and ensures a more logical comparison between apartment listings.
The following provides a breakdown of the category weightings:
Overall Rating 70%
Overall Rating 4
Avg. Score (4 x 70%) + (4 * 5%) + (3 * 5%) + (5 * 5%) + (3 * 5%) + (4 * 5%) + (4 * 5%) = 3.95
The Avg. Score is a calculated weighting based on each of the rating categories, including Overall Rating, Location, Noise, Security, Amenities, Parking, and Management. Users can not edit Avg. Score, but can edit the categories which will affect the Avg. Score.
The Overall Rating is a category that reviewers can manually select.
No. ApartmentReview.com.au is a neutral platform that provides a place for apartment owners and renters to submit reviews. We do not alter or amend reviews in any way; however, all reviews are screened before publishing. The purpose of the screening is to ensure no defamatory or explicit language is contained in the review. Therefore, a review may be rejected based on the above reasons, but it will never be altered or amended. For more information, see our Submission Guidelines.
Apartment Review manages reviews to prevent our users from being misled in compliance with the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission.

If you feel a review violates the submission guidelines please navigate to the Report Abuse page to submit a complaint. Alternatively, there is a ‘Report’ link under each apartment review. The Apartment Review team will come back to you with a response within 48 hours.
