Landlord Mistakes

Today's article is on landlord mistakes, and I have a story for you.

It’s the first of the month, and I had a tenant that I just love named Bob come in to pay his rent.  Bob is a commercial tenant of ours that has a successful tattoo parlor, but he also rents a house from another landlord.  We were talking about business, and he said he just loved renting a house because he just called the landlord to fix things.

This drives me crazy!

Bob is a smart guy, he has great credit, a great income and he needs to buy a house!  At any rate, I digress from the story.  His house is in a great area of town with good schools. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a basement, a 3 car detached garage and a large corner lot that is fenced.  He loves it!
