[quote=”PatrioticStabilist”]Remember many of these people may very well have jobs, they aren’t making enough to qualify
and pay the exorbitant rentals being charged.
Here where we live we have rentals, right now only 5, plus a bit of farmland rented and we bought
a building the local post office rents. We rent slightly below market, hubby and I need to make a profit but
we are not trying to gouge anyone. We get calls daily looking for places to rent. He is working on 2 more
now and will have one ready in a couple of months. We want to make sure people can live, we have always
done it this way. Make sure they are well insulated, all systems are functioning, generally heating and
cooling systems updated too. We want people to get value for their money. We have loyal renters.
Sure we could make a lot more money, but as hubby says we have enough. That’s what burns me about
so many very wealthy, they want it all and more, they do not want to share with the people that make
them wealthy at all. After you have so many millions or billions, what is the point of hoarding more?
Good grief. So people who are wealthy only worry about themselves? I can tell you that, without question, that is patently false. There are many wealthy people who do much to take care of employees, or donate to charities, or whatever. Being poor doesn’t make someone a good or honest person. To lump people into “good” or “bad” based on their wealth is absurd.
Husband wants to get 2 more, but I for one am tired and getting old and also even here prices for these
old houses are priced way beyond what we want to pay now so we can keep our rents low. And now because
the state has reduced monies to our counties and towns, local property taxes must be raised and they
have even raised local option taxes so hard for us to hold rents down and make a decent return. People
here are very priced out of the market too, but we don’t see homeless around here. They are likely couch
surfing with friends or relatives. It would be hard to do here anyway, especially in cold weather, they
would die even in tents.
No, the county and towns are spending more than they have. The state has also spent more than they have, so they are reining in spending. The towns and counties should also reduce spending rather than depend on taxpayer handouts.
