    In my case, I actually love living here. Very upscale.

        It's not all it's cracked up to be!

        You are always at work! LOL
        Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can do today.

              I have been living onsite at different properties for 10 years now. I really don't mind. And the one I just moved into this week is incredible. Everything done right. And new paint and carpet between managers. (The previous one left me with thick orange mold all over the shower and cat pee stains on the carpet, which they blamed on me when I left!!! They didn't even vacuum. I cried for a week after seeing that apartment.)

                Never will I ever live on site again. So long answer, no.

                You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough!

                  I don't mind living on site. I just wish my apartment was completely above the office for more privacy. I've seen some nice set-ups that I wish I had.

                    I get my point across very quickly that I am off on Sunday and Monday and the office is closed. It had better be an EMERGENCY to try and contact me on those days.

                      It is very, very rare that someone bothers me after hours or on my days off (saturday/sunday). Those that have only did it once and apologized non-stop for it.
                      And by privacy, I mean more being able to open windows or curtains. Living area being at ground level and entrance/exit on either side of building, it's too easy for people driving by to look in my windows. I hate that.

                        Yes and it could be OK if the place was updated and the floor (above the office) was not paper thin. I dont get much privacy and hate that

                          I live on site and its great. My front door to the living quarters is in the back corner of the building so I don't have anyone banging on my door. There is nothing like walking through one door and you are at work. I can also step into my office and check my cameras after we have closed and pop in and do my morning reports before I open and also check the property ( Please don't tell my company because I get in trouble for working on my own time lol)

                            Yep, 5 seconds from work and 5 seconds from home. No wear and tear on vehicle in heavy traffic. It has to depend on the area and how nice the house is. My last place I was in a home for 2 years but was cramped, 2 bedroom, and around 900 square feet and not in a great neighborhood. This place is in a great neighborhood ad is 1200 square feet with vaulted ceilings. When I took over, before I moved in, they repainted the whole place including the office, new counter tops-home and office, new flooring-home and office, new carpet-home and office, newer double pane windows, new screens, new ceiling fans and all new appliances. The office got a whole new computer system with new big screen tv for the security camera display. Almost forgot, home got a new shower surround as well. I really could not be happier.

                              Man you need to get educated and your lease straightened up to what Ill. state laws say about self storage. This guy should have been over locked 60 days ago and up for disposal now. Do you have any units behind on rent and what do you do to them.Do you over lock them?

                              Boat trailer or a unit, your freakin' lease should say something about locking out a non paying tenant. Do you have a lease, I guess is the next question? Who drew it up? This type of stuff has been addressed time and time again. Late enough, lock them out, period!

                              I've had a local merchant who focuses on small business offer this to us. I personally prefer paying credit card processing fees and having immediate funds. The 10-day delay we commonly have with ACH payments creates way too many accounting issues. I do know that a tenant using a debit cad instead of...
