Bahumbug!! December is probably the worst month of the year to try to rent a property.
Finding qualified new tenants in December has always been a challenge for us. Think about it, if someone didn’t plan ahead enough to move their family before Christmas/New Years or cannot wait until after they are probably not going to the best tenant either. Of course there are some exceptions: moving from far away, damage to their existing residence, etc.
We’ve added a lot of properties in 2012, I will post a summary after the year is over.
How did everyone else do in 2012?
