I want to thank those responding to my article on Friday. I had some tenant troubles, and you helped me out by giving your advice. In fact, it was the most advice I’ve ever gotten. Overwhelmingly you said what I thought was right – let my tenant break her lease without penalty. A few of you mentioned that karma would make it right. I don’t believe in karma, but perhaps you were right.
I had my real estate agent list the property and in less than 24 hours we had four prospects. One of them dropped out, and we were able to narrow it down to the top two. I liked one particular couple, but the other possibility had almost as good financing and asked to sign a two year lease. This is a great surprise as I won’t have to pay the agent next year – if all goes well.
It’s always a stretch to think that things will go according to plan, but I will be better off if it does.
