Beautiful. Great reflection on who you are as a human being.
I am not a slumlord Monique.
That doesn't mean I don't understand the business model.
I have one house I rent out that I take absurdly good care of. I am always asking what needs fixed. I am always asking them if everything is okay, and if they are okay.
My renter works really hard, and I don't hassle them when they get behind - even though I know I should. My friends who are landlords tell me I am lousy at being a landlord - and they are absolutely right, I am too lenient. I treat people the way I would want to be treated.
They try. They always try to catch up. **** happens and I cut them slack.
One thing - I don't rent to section 8. I'd rather rent to someone who is working and busting their rear end to pay their own rent. I could get more money if I did do section 8. I have had people come to look at the house and tell me what they could pay me, and what the government would pay me. I don't do that business - I don't have to if I don't want to.
So - thanks for judging me once again Monique.
Somehow I knew you would, and you didn't let me down.
