RENTALS IN HINESVILLE OVER PRICED AND BAD SHAPE
Last comment by mountain 3 years, 7 months ago.

Landlords/Rental agents in Hinesville are charging too much rent for deteriorating and tore down properties.

I spent the majority of the day escorting a newcomer around the area to find a place to live. I couldn't believe my eyes. The apartments-houses-mobile homes were dirty, and outdated. It upset me becuase the prices are high and they refuse to take care of the property. They can do this becuase of limited affordable housing in the area.

There was a time the local government or the military would monitor the places for rent in a town and make sure the properties were priced right and met government standards.

The chain of command on base should take a hard look at what the landlords and rental agents are charging and the condition of the property before soliders lease them.

Ever since housing privatized the COC has turned a blind eye to housing even on post. For some reason that is no longer considered part of taking care of Soldiers and their Families. The real shame is Soldiers still have recourse on post to settle disputes regardless of what you hear. It is the other 70% of Soldiers and their Families that landlords are taking advantage of on a daily basis. And sadly enough, that 70% really does not have a "champion" for them. As an old Non-com, sad to see, sad to see

I guess this is why Long County is growing at a fast pace.

It is very sad. We stop by my old rental spot from 10 years ago-I paid 400.00 then -it now rents for 850.00. I know times/economy/cost of living has changed..the sad part is the apartment has not. The apartment had the same appliances, cabinets and counter-tops from 10 years ago. Something has to change.Sad indeed..

@Seb Unfortunately, the majority of the properties that were in the worst shape were apartment complex- owned by locals..they advertise on bill boards up and down the roads in Hinesville....If the real estate companies are unable to update the property or make repairs because the owner can't afford it-they should drop them or lower the rent.

PN, from a lifelong resident I wholeheartedly agree with your assessment of the landlords of Liberty county.

This is not the way it was before Ft. Stewart was turned into an Infantry training center. The slumlords take advantage of the young soldier who is trying to marginalize their housing
allowance by living off post.

Like JimmyMack I was a landlord until two years ago. I was charging $500 a month for my rental houses and the rental houses in the same neighborhood were going for $750 a month and they were not in good shape like mine were.

JimmyMack, before you move into a condo check the monthly or yearly maintenance fees. These fees can be from $250 to $500 each month.
