I have to admit that some of my tenant’s amaze me too. I just had a young couple move out of one of my duplexes. They were paying $520 with me and are now paying $770 for an extra 2 rooms and a backyard. They tell me how they would like to own a home but their credit is messed up.
I told them about a house I had bought last month without even a credit check being done on me and using seller financing. I told them twice that if they wanted me to, that I would be more than happy to at least give them some ideas on getting their own home. They said they would get back to me in a week or so but never did and never brought up the subject again. People never cease to amaze me.
The sad part is that when they moved out I raised the rent on my new tenants up another $70 a month.
