I still consider myself a novice to the landlord gig.
My current tenants for my townhouse are fleeing the coup at the end of the month, and I'm looking for replacements pronto. I got the following email from an agent:
Is the above home still available for lease? Would the owner consider 3 professional ladies as tenants and who are very interested in this home for immediate move in. 3 separate incomes. Deposit and credit checks ready to go! They have one large dog, one medium dog as well and the dogs work in veterinary medicine, so yes they are tame and trained---will not destroy the home. What would be the pet deposit if the owner will consider? Also would the owner consider **** per month for immediate move-in? Please advise. Thanks
Obviously I'd be thrilled to get someone in there ASAP, but don't know how destructive a great dane can be. I do have great respect for vet med people. Any thoughts on whether this is a bad idea or for how much a pet deposit I should ask? At the moment, these are my only applicants.
All I gotta say is please let me know what your neighbors say if you do select them. 6 occupants including one horse. Shudder. I like dogs but I fear for your risk on this one. You will learn quickly the world of rental properties can be rewarding, but expect some nightmares along the way.
