New Renter for Rental #2

May 30th, 2018 at 10:35 am

Well it was looking pretty sketchy there for a little bit, but we found a new renter for rental #2 as of July 1st. So just one month (June) of no rent. The housing market here is NOT good for landlords or sellers right now. There are tons and tons of places for rent or for sale. Every street you drive down has multiple houses with "For rent" or "For sale" signs up. So we are very fortunate to have renters in both of our houses, and we have 3 of 4 apts filled at the apartment building we manage for my parents. We have another showing today on the 4th apartment, so hopefully that building will be full for the first time since like October.

We have put a new fridge into Rental #2, and also ordered new carpet for 3 rooms. The carpet isn't in yet, but should be this week I hope. Other then that just some touch up paint and working on the lawn and flower beds and we will be all set. The new renter is a pastor and has family. Hoping this will work out well. It is only for a year as he is here temporarily for a job, but happy to have someone in there for a year at least. We were also happy that we didn't have to lower the rent at all, we were able to stay at the $1500.

Debt Update - 5/25/18 Rental Repairs Update

May 25th, 2018 at 12:42 pm

Well we got the new carpet ordered for Rental #2, the new fridge was delivered last week, and we got a signed lease for a new renter today! They won't be moving in until July 1st, but that is ok cause we need to get the new carpet in and do some yard work and a few minor repairs so it's good to have a few weeks to get everything done right before they move in.

We also (hopefully) found another renter for the 4 unit we manage for my parents. We don't have a lease yet, so not saying for sure, but looks promising.

Debt Update - 5/11/18

May 11th, 2018 at 02:46 pm

We are scrambling like crazy with our rentals and the rentals we are the property managers at. Spring brings so many repairs and maintenance tasks and then add that to our renter moving out, and 2 units open in the property we manage and hubby and I are both running around in circles all the time. We have a few more repairs than we originally thought at Rental #2. MO ordered a new fridge for it yesterday, and we will be replacing the carpeting in 3 rooms as well. We also ordered new hot tub covers for the rental (renter will be losing out of their deposit for that since they destroyed it) and one for our hot tub. So very happy we had a good savings cushion going.....after all the repairs I'm sure there will be a good chunk gone.

We cashed out our Dietbet Winnings and that was a great boost to savings!

Our renter in Rental #2 is moving out at the end of the month so we will get that on the market tomorrow and hopefully don't have any trouble filling the vacancy. Since we just did updates on that one last summer it should be pretty much move in ready, other then that we need to buy a new fridge for it.
