I find myself fortunate because I live in a rented home in a town where there are a lot of students.
Everyday I hear stories from the students who work as interns in my office, and they tell me all the time about how awful the management is at their housing complex.
One of them does not even live in student housing, she just lives in a little town home like mine, but it is managed by one of the same property management companies that takes care of the student apartments. If they have plumbing that is leaking, air conditioning system that is not cold enough, or any other problem, they tend to just get empty promises from property managers! I know awful for them, especially one girl who had air conditioning system unquestionably did not work officially, and as a result she had tons of mold growing in her home, as a full grown adult woman, I would never put up with a see that did not work and I especially would not allow them to take advantage of me and have mold growing in my house, a lot of these companies think they can take advantage of the students. I am genuinely fortunate because my property owner takes care of all problems immediately! Just recently, I had to text him and let him guess that my air conditioning system was not keeping the home cool anymore, she did not waste any time. She got on the PC immediately and called the heating and cooling business and set up an A/C service call for the genuinely next afternoon. The boys from the heating and A/C business came out the next afternoon as promised, and I had my air conditioning system working immediately. I do not take these good A/C companies and property managers for granted because I guess how awful some of those property managers are.
