I have owned 2 rentals for 15 years. Here is the suggestion from an actual landlord. ( DO NOT OWN A RENTAL ) The mood of this country is changing to socialism. Tenants hate your guts because you are the rich guy who is ripping them off by collecting rent. As an example, I rented to a family for 11 years. During that time, I raised the rent in two steps from $800 to $845 per month. The tenants were livid and accused me of trying to destroy them financially. The verbal abuse became so bad I ended their month to month lease. Better a vacancy than constant insults. As they were moving out, the tenants told me I was scum because all they could find for $845 a month was a 2 bedroom, rather than the 4 bedroom they had :-)
