Anybody on here rent property?

31 posts in this topic

We are looking at buying a new house and its going to be impossible to sell our current home for awhile. Considering renting it. The other rentals on my street are getting some good coin. Is it worth the hassle or should I get a property mgmnt firm to deal with it and just pay them their 10%?

Done it, hated it, pay them their fee. Nothing as fun as getting a call at 11 in the night about someone breaking their bedroom window when it's 20 degrees outside and you have to figure out how to fix it ASAP. Or other, worse stories.

10% is pretty low, if that's the case I'd sign it yesterday.

Read the fine print and make sure you know what's included in that 10%.

I rented my beach house for 4 summers until it was paid for and it was running me 16% (10 years ago). They did the cleaning between renters, repairs, emergency calls, inventory, etc. Well worth it when you're 4 1/2 hours away.

Whatever you do, don't rent from TR Lawing. My girlfriend's family has been without heat, water, electricity for 3 months and they are still having to pay 900+ dollars/month. Have called the rental company many times but they won't send someone to fix the problems. It's pretty miserable for them

Pretty sure that is illegal.

Without water the county typically condemns the property as its unsanitary.

Your girlfriends family needs to call the code enforcement office.

We are prepping a house for renting. We moved out over a year ago and having sat empty for that long now it needs repairs.

When you go with a management company do they provide the lease or do I still need to pay a lawyer to write one? If the mgmt co has their own is that something I would have any input on or is it just something I have to let them handle?

Good questions. I guess I just can't go to legalzoom.com and write a lease.

    • With rivera thinking defense would win mentality..they thought Cam would be enough him and Smitty and double trouble...didn't work that way..this is a passing league and you have to adjust..front 7 is nice but if the team is getting ball out quick it negates it.Our offense in the SB was slow and line not good on the right side..After loosing Smity we had no true threat...Benjamin is good but is slow. Ginn and Brown weak and small..they are no smity ..If Steve were here we would have had a 2015 SB. Imagine Smitty in Browns place during SB...the organization took a turn for worst on offense should have gotten a  replacement benji was not it or was not enough.
    • So you answer a question with a question? Have no opinion?  Scared to guess?
    • correct. herbert spencer's concept (falsely attributed to darwin) was used heavily throughout the late 19th century to add a scientific justification for things like child labor and opposing evils such as regulations. some people were meant to be poor! it is a sure sign someone has no empathy and shouldn't be a viable voice in putting together a society that works for everyone because it is inherently anti-social.
