I am thinking of buying a six-bedroom house near a University. It is for sale for $250,000 and I can charge $110 per week for each room (plus utilities). If I give it to a property manager to handle the letting, and if I accept only full-time students, and if I furnish it with chunky hard-to-smash furniture, and if I also pay a cleaner to clean the common areas for 2 hours every week it seems like an OK deal to me. I have heard some horror stories, and they are putting me off a bit, but should I look beyond the negative and go for it? It isn't really a super-huge outlay after all... I went to Uni (nursing) and I saw the good and the bad. I am very undecided. Any advice is very welcome. Thank you. Theresa.
