While I am not exactly used to this particular style of renting, I think that this is actually a really great idea. While you get all of the conveniences of a home, I have to say that the outside really looks awesome too. Personally – I do not like the complex feel or the look of it – everyone is crammed together in one complex and there is no real personality to it.
With the apartment/house, there is a ton of personality and truly … you do get more than what you get with just one apartment. You get a full feel of a house and even if you have always lived in an apartment – your floor will look any way that you want it to.
Really – this is a better option if you want not to buy a house but want the feel of it.
