As you can see, I haven’t posted on this blog in awhile. Like as in since last May!
Lots of issues in the news and so on that I could have should have written about over that time – but since my own landlording has been going so smoothly, I guess I just haven’t been irked enough.
And honestly, still not irked.
I am very happy to report that after 2 Christmases totally ruined by tenants-from-hell, we don’t have any tenants-from-hell at all right now. The Peterborough house was sold, to a guy that planned to use it pretty much as we did when we bought it; live there while going to school, rent out rooms. I hope he has a better experience with it than we did!
We do still have one property that includes two units – but good tenants in both. You know – the sort of tenants that pay their rent without a hassle and can be counted on to let us know if there’s a problem (there haven’t been, actually – but I know that if there were, they would tell us rather than expecting us to just know). That’s all it takes to make me happy.
Christmas without the stress of terrible tenants is definitely my best gift this year. Here’s hoping ’tis the same for you, too.
