Well move your kid out, to a cheaper older property that is further from campus.

Is it too late in your kid's college career to consider purchasing a condo? I don't keep up with the student-oriented condo market. Seems like there would always be a reasonable rental market after your child is out of school (assuming you want to manage a long-distance property!)?

I am a student who currently lives in Polo Club..... I am absolutely NOT re-signing my lease here. I found a beautiful 2/2 townhouse, 1100 sq/ft of living space, a garage, a two car driveway, only 6 years old and the rent is only like $450/mo. and it's still close to campus - I will be living there starting August.

I will never live in Polo Club or another property managed by aptsintally.com or Collier Properties. They have towed my car even though I live here and have a valid parking permit, they have weird maintenance guys that come and go as they please, I've started seeing drug deals go on in the parking lot here, rude staff, my dishwasher has been broken all year and I've filed multiple maintenance requests and it's still not fixed, and I now have mold coming through my windows and they won't take care of it (I'll try to post pictures in a little bit). I really used to love living here, but now I hate it.

OH! And now Polo Club is doing utilities through their office. E.g. your utilities get billed to the Polo Club office, and then Polo Club bills you. It sounds convenient at first, except this makes it easy for them to profit off of your utilities by charging you more without you even knowing.

I highly recommend Coastal Properties to find an apartment/house/townhouse. They have been more than helpful for me!
