What You Need To Know About Finding Student Accommodation In Geelong.

When moving to a new area to start university, finding the right accommodation can be daunting. For students, it’s always handy to know that the stress of renting and living in shared accommodation is taken care of, so you can focus on the important things. Making sure you’re living in right kind of accommodation to suit your needs and interests isn’t as hard as it seems, and learning to live with new people is much simpler when you share common ground.  Here are some of the most important things to remember when looking for accommodation, student housing and share housing in Geelong. 

Finding The Right Property Manager Is Vital
Finding the property manager may not seem like its important, but it’s one of the most important decisions you’ll make when you decide to live in student accommodation. Your property manager takes care of all the important stuff for you like dealing with any maintenance issues that occur throughout your tenancy, addressing any issues with your accommodation and the likes, so that you can focus on uni, work and the all-important social life. Having the right property manager means you can take all of the worries out of being a first-time renter and for all the concerned parents out there, you want to be sure your son or daughter is in a safe rooming house managed by professionals. At Fresh Property Management we’re on your side, we’re not just out to make a buck— so you can always guarantee that we will do our very best to make sure everything is taken care of when you rent in Geelong.

The Right Arrangement Is The Key To A Happy Home
Share housing, student accommodation, student housing, rooming houses… what does it all mean? A simple chat with the right property manager can help us to understand what type of accommodation is best for you, and what you want to get out of living in Geelong. We want all students and renters to be comfortable in their new home, so it’s important that you choose the type of accommodation that is going to benefit you the most. Do you have in mind a group of students or friends that you want to rent with? Would you prefer living in a big, social,  busy share house? Or is a small, minimal bedroom rental more your style? These are the questions you need to ask yourself to get the most out of your Geelong student accommodation. 

Learning To Live With New People
Living with new people (especially people you’ve never met before) can be a real challenge— so it’s vital that you take steps to make sure you’re learning to coexist with people around you and living with like-minded people. Once you’ve moved in, try to organise a weekly activity that will help you all to get to know one another a little better. Dinners, game nights or movie nights are some ideas. Once you are comfortable with each other, it’s easier to bring up things that might be bothering you, or that you want to change. 

Remember, moving to a town like Geelong doesn’t have to be daunting if you’re prepared and have the right property manager in line to help you take the stress out of being a renter.
