It’s almost hard for me to write this post. I have been living in Indiana for a large part of my life and now my only child wants to leave the coup and venture to the great White North, Canada. Let me tell you, nothing you ever hear from other parents prepares you for when you first, last and only child leaves the nest for the first time (maybe he will drop out and come back? It’s too early to tell!).
The one company near the University of Waterloo that my son found beyond helpful is Waterloo off campus housing. The man behind the scenes, Shayne, was apparently one of the most helpful people when it comes to finding the perfect fit for housing as a student. After doing my research I came to understand that this isn’t a mass housing management company, looking to churn and burn clients / students in and out of their investors’ buildings – they take on one investor and student at a time and do the proper due diligence. I was fortunate enough to find this great company through finditnearme.co/ – what a lucky break!
The process at WOCH wasn’t quick or easy, but it just meant that only the best tenants would be in the same building as my boy, and that was something to feel good about. You don’t need to worry that anything will get stolen or that there will be too much noise on the weeknights. Plus everyone has a very similar routine because everyone is usually a student, so lots of good people to meet and make friends with.
