I'v lived in College Station for over twenty years and had some real problems, about ten years ago the house next door was sold and rented to students by the room. Since then there have been MANY drunken parties, mostly after the bars close, then going on until 3 or 4 AM. What happens during the early morning hours, just good people outside having fun until a fight breaks out... then yelling..., people leaving angrily in cars/trucks, sometimes driving through the middle your yard! Then there are the mostly quite nights with people urinating all over the trees/yards/streets... The city might consider putting outhouses in front of the boarding houses!? We've even had a car drive into an Oak Tree in our yard late one night. Complaining to the city and calling the police would sometimes work until the next group of students arrived, note you might have angry partiers mutilating your house in revenge, been there! Please note there were some groups of students that were pleasant and didn't cause any trouble. Still I would NEVER purchase a house in College Station knowing than an investor could buy the house next door and turn it into a boarding house and rent it out by the room to students. Sadly this IS ruining the neighborhoods! The city is in complete denial about this and is siding with the investors, neighborhood groups are attempting to shut this rental by room houses down. Until this is resolved I would go elsewhere to live. Sorry but living next to a boarding house renting by the room I'd rate a negative 5.
