This is our best rental property and as such we have already rented the place for October and collected the first month rent. I wanted to increase the rent by $30 a month, and we did initially advertise it at that level but then we reduced it as Mr. Sam would rather not lose a month of rent than collect a few hundred over the course of a year. Before our new tenant moves in we are having the property tented for termites.
Rental #3 is also vacant. The tenants that were in rental # 3 were there for quite some time. I have no idea as to the status of the property although I'm sure Mr. Sam has checked on it. I assume there will be some turn over costs and we are unlikely to have the property ready for advertising for October. Which means we likely will be losing a month's rent.
This is our worst rental property for a variety of reasons but because it is a three bedroom we do get quite a few family candidates who are interested in it because it is cheap.
