With the opening of international borders, the state government has implemented plans to make money for international students.

Between the dismantling of historic buildings for new student accommodation and the reallocation of existing properties, a government employee hit the absolute jackpot when he spotted a dilapidated building just ten minutes from the Betoota Polytechnic Campus.

Jacqui Templeman told our reporter that she went for a little scenic drive when she found a multi-level property that appeared to be completely empty – mainly because it was incredibly run down and habitable only for the high level of rodents. who chewed. on windowsills.

“As soon as I saw it, I knew it would be perfect,” Jacqui says.

“It could easily accommodate up to fifteen students if they weren’t afraid to stay together haha.”

Even though the inspection showed the house to be riddled with asbestos, Jacqui says she was not deterred.

“You can just sum it up,” Jacqui says.

“Honestly, it’s fine, as long as the wood isn’t disturbed.

Rubbing their hands in glee, Jacqui says the property was a good deal and they will easily recoup the profits within a year.

“We’ll be charging around $ 350 per week per student, that’s easy. “

“As long as we mention that it covers the cleaning fee, its proximity to the university, and the ability to make lifelong friendships, we’ll be filling it in no time.” “

More soon.
