|Fortunately, she is GONE! And her new address would not have been a surprise to me if I'd googled her name first. In which case, of course, I wouldn't have rented to her.
My tenant now is the son of the owner of the bodega next door. His girlfriend and their toddler live there with him. I've known him and his father for years--and if I have anything that even vaguely, remotely, distantly resembles a problem, which is quite rare, I drop by the store and mention it to his dad.
I wish I could get more in rent, but a trouble-free tenant who pays promptly is worth a lot. When I briefly felt like I was being lazy by taking this young man at the lower rent, a more experienced small landlord pointed out how long it would take to make up even a single month's lost rent, at the highest rent I could reasonably expect to get.
