We have someone who looks good for that vacant house. Section 8 inspection Tuesday. This was the house that was REMOVED from Section 8 due to a bad history from the owner. I got Section 8 reinstated on another house w this issue.. hoping to get the same here.. No rent increase.. in fact $20 less but filled same month, we can ask for a rent increase in a year and generally s8 are much longer term tenants. vacancy is REALLY expensive so trying to avoid that at all costs.. turn over is really expensive too . .I just spent almost $2k getting this house fixed up. do not want it turning over in a year.
Person for 3 unit fell through and chose a place nearer to her work. We are still showing it and still aiming to fill for the first. Fingers crossed
My boss says she IS going to renew me . My contract is up July 7. Not sure for 6 months or longer. I asked for a year and talked to her boss who says he has budget.. and in fact I am already in this budget through year end and he will be put me in for next year. project I am on is likely to extent into mid next year
After July I will have maxed the 401k.. so my paycheck will go way up. What ever that 'difference' is will go directly into savings/investments
HIGH repair month last month and missing 1 month rent.. but still getting NETS of almost $6000. I had almost $3000 of repair maintenance costs last month.. upsetting but not avoidable.. house fix up..fence.. water heater.. sewer rodding.. were among some of the larger items.
I am considering ending a relationship and just sortof moving on. always upsetting/scary/stressful to end a relationship but does not appear to be 'long term' and sortof feeling I am wasting my time and feeling 'stalled'.. just a lot of stuff..
About it for now. despite some bumps here and there still thrilled with new management company and my plan.
For the end of this year I will still save as much as I can.. invest.. develop systems/ processes for the rentals and continue to work on creative ideas to get this house (where I live) paid down significantly..
what a feeling it will be next year this time when I will be essentially 1 year from having all properties paid in full and likely receiving over $8000 cash flow.
