Hey thought I'd throw an idea out to you guys who own homes, and are finding it difficult to rent them, for whatever reason

Now is one of the best times to consider owner financing. A lot of good people had to walk away from homes they were buried in. They have good jobs, and are good people just bad luck. Now these people are forced to rent. Instead of renting to them do this.

Owner finance them. Require 10% down and hold the note at 3% over prime, once they get up on their credit again they can go to a bank and pay you off. If not you are sitting pretty with a high return, no longer putting out money for damages, upkeep, rising taxes and ins...etc.

I am doing this right now, buying cheap foreclosures, jacking up the price, sometimes over twenty grand, and holding the note, using sound judgement of who I am financing, makes a lot of sense at this time...P

Why would any of you want to rent your house? Unless....you want to take advantage of someone else or you bought a house you could not afford to live in or make the payments and now can not sell the house for what is owed. If you are smart, you would invest in better, more safer things. GET SMART or play the game.... some you will win, but most you will loose.

I would like to say something about bad landlords. I owned a home and then got a divorce and rented from two landlords. The first was excellent and I was an excellent tenant. He didn't want me to move but I had to because the place was too big for me and getting too expensive in terms of utilities. I stayed there 4 years and ended the lease. The place was spotless when I left. Then I moved in with a FRIEND. He owned his own home which he SAID he was renovating. While I was there, not only did he overcharge me to live in a home that periodically had no working plumbing, was freezing in the winter and was a disaster area (left sawdust on the floor in the main part of the house for - I kid you not - 4 months without using so much as a broom), but the house was full of mold in the sheetrock, the basement leaked and destroyed some of the belongings I had stored there. I made the mistake of paying him a few times in cash and he pocketed the money and then came to me a couple of months later and told me that I had skipped a month's rent. Unbearable. This guy was trash, a slob and a liar. I will never, ever, ever rent from an individual landlord ever again because of this guy nor will I ever recommend that anyone rent from an individual.

The point is - there are nearly as many bad landlords as there are renters. I am very sympathetic to all of your stories about deadbeats and destroyed property. But how does anyone who visits this forum know that you have been a decent landlord?

I am sure we can clarify our positions like civilized people.

I've given up renting to bad renters, you can only do so much to protect yourself. The state laws are designed to protect tenants more than to protect landlords. So choose your tenant wisely, do a credit check, background check, ask previous landlords on how the tenant/s habits and whether they are always pay on time or always behind. Don't take the law into your own hand, since it will bite you back in the end. The courts are always busy, so it takes a long time to process eviction/s and you would also be needing a lawyer which charge you a lot of money to represent you in court. Be safe, don't rent, use the extra space for your family.

Before you rent, CHECK THEM OUT! You can do it online at: http://webinfo4.brevardclerk.us/facts/name_se... Change the dates to 1/1/1985 to the present to get all the information for evictions, drugs, traffic violations, domestic violence, divorce, failure to pay child support, Baker Act, etc.

Consider that PATTERNS in any one of those is a flaming red flag for being responsible and honest.

Just make sure your apartment application includes dates birth, maiden name, no nicknames, and SS number/s ... as well as their last five landlords. Run the Name Search under each known name (nicknames, maiden names, etc.

DO present them with the cost of utilities including how much they need for those deposits. Require them to show PROOF of those deposits before they can move in to prove they can afford living there, and lest they end up stealing water and electricity from neighbors. Let them know the average bill for 2 or 4 or 8 people under the same roof to give them a clear picture of what their monthly fixed bills will be.

Require (1)$150 (or more) damage deposit in addition to 1st and last month's rent,(2) an inspection when they're ready to move. If the damages exceed $150, deduct it from the rent deposit. Be sure they are responsible on moving to have the carpets cleaned, and the apartment (including appliances) as clean as they found them ... under penalty of forfeiture of their deposits. All of that must be spelled out in the lease.

If they start to default on the full rent, see it as a red flag for inability to pay and get them out.

Make sure no one not approved on the lease moves in without being checked out at Name Search. Once they're in, getting them out is expensive and a royal PITA.

Looking for local contact information Gary Bedrosian, Hamilton College Class of 2010 - so recently out of college, living in Washington D.C. area and working for an orthodontist. He's 23, white male, applying to dental schools. He decided to break his rental agreement on a house share, and he cleared out before the landlord could return from a business trip to avoid paying last months rent. He's ignored all communications via email and text. He's liable for utilities and other house damages and has been evasive in terms of contact. He's not a good tenant. Info to ajsocool@gmail.com Thanks!

So, what made you think you had any right to just stop by the house unannounced? I rent from a landlord just like you, stops by anytime they feel like it, peeking in the windows and invading our privacy. They also want to come and do walk through inspections every 3-4 months. We are good tenants for 3 years now, always pay the rent and take very good care of the property. Yet, just because we won't allow our landlord to violate our rights anymore they give us 60 days notice. Total BS with no recourse for the good tenants.
