Well I’m breathing a partial sigh of relief. The duplex is closed, rehabbed and rented. The pessimist in me is just waiting for next months rent not be paid…but all is well right now.
so far, so good.
You can never 100% count on that rent being paid, but good screening helps. It also helps to be inflexible about the rules. The tenants are less likely to try to run scams on you if they know it will get them kicked out immediately.
