Quote from: ohillary on December 14, 2019, 02:06:53 PMIs anyone familiar with doing corporate rentals/traveling nurse rentals in SF? We purchased an Outer Richmond house in 2016 and after 1.5 years of remodel, wife says its too nice and she's afraid of renting in the acrimonious conditions of SF. But since we are a few years from occupying, it would be advantageous to cover some costs with a limited term renter. Look forward to your thoughtful replies. And thanks Sam for hosting blog.
Quote from: ohillary on December 21, 2019, 08:57:26 AMThanks for the detailed response; looks like you've been there/done that. You hit the nail on the head: I went down to studs in half the house, new furnace, 200amp upgrade, gas fireplace, new bathrooms, and more and I don't want it f'd up. Wife says I overdid it but I say now's the time to do it (when vacant) and I don't want to do it later (I am 68, and sore). And I see what you (and Sam) are saying about having a good satisfied renter, steady income, minimal damage to home, etc. We all want, and deservedly so, a place to come home to, to recharge, to shelter, etc. That usually evolves into long term expectations from the renter and possible conflict at the end of the trail. I can only rent mine for 2-3 years, then I need my place back. A lot of good points to think about, tho . . . thanksO
