We get phone calls every week from tired landlords that are sick of tenants not paying, paying late, and trashing houses. They become very frustrated trying to understand why their tenant experiences are so horrible.
Our tenants on the other hand are amazing! They never trash our houses. They never pay late. They never call with silly problems/requests. We love our tenants and they do not leave us.
Have you ever rented a house from someone and moved out? If so, ask yourself why you left and that will likely give you clues to why other tenants leave as well. Sometimes things happen that you as a homeowner/landlord cannot control. Things like tenants moving for job relocation, buying their own home, or moving into a bigger home to suit new children happen. What we are talking about are the negative experiences that make tenants want to leave. These are usually things that a homeowner/landlord can control, but do not.
In our opinion, the core of attractive great tenants are providing a great house at a great price. Perform on these things, and your tenants will perform for you.
Check out our posts next week where we explain what specifically makes tenants stay!
