Rent isn’t a four-letter word

OK, technically it is- though it shouldn’t be included among the other four-letter words many have come to despise.

Both renting and renters have surely taken their hits over the years.  Who hasn’t heard of the ol’ “Rent versus buy” analysis?  And how often do you hear that question answered with “rent”?

Chances are it’s been a rare occurrence.  More often than not, owners are advised to sell rather than rent their homes out- while prospective buyer/renters are shown the many benefits of homeownership to the detriment of both Mr. Landlord-neighbor trying to rent out his place and Mr. Property Manager trying to earn a living by helping him do so.

Things seem to be taking a turn for the better as our economy sputters along, though- as evidenced by this recent article coming via Florida Realtors

Good to see that tenant-occupied properties are on the rise in a number of our larger metro areas- and though some will disagree, it’s good to see folks are considering this a good thing for the most part.

Are there bad tenants?  Of course.  Bad landlords?  Absolutely.  But there are also some dang good ones out there- those fresh from their parents’ homes and not ready to purchase, the elderly who can no longer maintain their own homes and former homeowners who are merely passing through Renter-land on their way back to ownership when their financial situations improve just to name a few.

Common thread here is another four-letter word- the need rental properties satisfy.
