New Renter

So a sad day came about 3 weeks ago. Our regular (for like 2 years) renters, Darren and Angela let us know that they were going to be moving out. It gets to be kind of hard, living right next to your tenants. You get to be friends with them, and miss them greatly when they leave. Unfortunately, every tenant is only temporary when it’s an apartment. People tend to change them as often as jobs change anymore.

Good news, like everything else they did when they rented from us, they were great about the notice. They gave us 30 days (like they are supposed to) and actually moved out in like 15. This gave us ample time to prepare the apartment for new tenants (not that much preparation was necessary, Ang kept the place ultra-clean).

Our new renter Marva, is working out great. She got us full deposit+rent weeks before she even moved in. This gave us the ability to get the apartment spiffed up a little before she moved in.  Her sister is currently staying with her, but this works out ok, since she has a couple of girls that are around our kid’s ages.

Pretty good so far, great renter, things are good and stable too.
