We are looking for a new place. cost of living in our area is generally low. you can find a 3 bedroom house for about 650 in our area. you know, a "normal" one...built in the 40s or 50s, so anyway my SO and I come across an add for a luxery "condo" for 750 a month, 2bed 2bath. has a swimming pool and a park and a "clubhouse" we decide to contact the rental company because even though we would rather have a house, the idea of not doing yard work, and having a pool that we dont have to maintain is nice too. so we arrange a showing, and i am like wtf.......now im no real estate expert but this looked exactly like a 2 bedroom apartment...though i admit im not sure exactly what the difference between a condo and an apartment is....it was SMALL. the only thing WOW factors were the small brick fireplace and the HUGE whirlpool tub in the larger bathroom. then the agents starts going over the "rules" I dont remeber them all but a few were, no grilling....at all period, nothing is allowed on your porch. not even a plastic chair to sit in, flower pots etc. no holes in the walls, you cant hang blinds, only curtains (the rods were already in place) and get this....if anything messes up (fridge, stove, air conditioner etc) we are responsible for all repairs up to and including replacement regardless of it we are at fault for the problem or if it is due to normal "wear and tear".......i would really like to know what these people are smoking......and who would actually agree to this non sense. I mean the rent is already "high" for our general area......and then you add all this crazy stuff in....its a wonder people do rent these properties.
