Excellent Ticket Mr. D. I live in a small, mostly rural county in a beat up but watertight and paid for home. I have two rental houses and marvel at the ways my tenants urinate money away. One tenant made 50 K per year but spent it all on booze, cigs and pot. The kids slept on bare mattresses covered in nasty skin oils and dirt, but, Mom and Dad had booze, pot and smokes. My wife gave the family a set of sheets because she was sorry for the kids. |
In 10 years, I raised the rent on this family from $800 to $845 a month in several increments. The wife chewed me out for " taking advantage of the little people " and sent several insulting emails that the rental was a dump and " not worth the rent " The end came when she paid the rent late and cussed me when I asked for the late fee. I ended the month to month lease and gave them 30 days notice as required by law.
The family moved and ended up paying the same rent for a 2 bedroom as they paid for my 4 bedroom. They had to rent a 30 yard dumpster for all the junk they hoarded. I wonder if that last insult was worth it?
