  • Are short-term rentals dead?

    We've always wanted to buy a short-term rental home, but recently I've been seeing things like AirBnBust. Are short term rentals no longer profitable for new people entering the market?

  • How can I protect myself when renting a house to someone?

    People make it seem like owning a rental is easy money. But what about people that don't pay? Squatters? Bad tenants? Or what if the tenant just leaves? How do I protect myself when owning a rental? I'm also worried about owning a rental and not getting a tenant. I could float the mortgage for a while, but not that long. I worry that this could ruin me financially rather than be beneficial. Any advice is appreciated.

  • Is it feasible to find rental home 2 wks before movein date?

    I am moving from Pennsylvania to Murfreesboro, Tennessee. My current rent contract ends June 18, so I'm really hoping to be able to move in to a rental home June 19 or 20 if possible. However, with my work schedule, the only possible opportunity I will have to visit the area in person and see homes is May 28 through June 3. I realize this is really cutting it close, as I've been reading that general rule of thumb is to start looking 30-45 days in advance. I have asked my current landlord to extend by 1 week, but not sure yet if this will be possible. I would like to use a realtor, my hope being that this will expedite process of finding a home within that 1 week opportunity (I'm sure I would end up wasting a lot of time trying to do it myself through Zillow or something). So my question really is, is this timeline feasible or am I setting myself up for failure by trying to make this work? I have a pretty good idea of what I'm looking for, Zillow suggests there are plenty of options that fit the bill in the area - if there was a suitable place found in that week I am visiting Tennessee, can the rest of the process of finalizing the contract be completed in the remaining 2 weeks? Anything you could share would be much appreciated.

    Housing prices around me seem to be going down, but we'd like to move. Should we just rent our house and wait for the future to sell it? Is there anything we should watch out for?

  • should a renter pay for repairs in commercial space?

    I own a medical practice for which I rent space. The landlord happens to be the Dr. I bought the practice from. It's a basement level space with water damage. Most recently a pipe burst requiring plumbing repairs. Landlord says I bought the practice, so I should repair it despite the purchase agreement not listing plumbing, electrical and flooring specifically. My casualty insurance is only paying for damages, not repairs by the way.
