in 2015 december i move out. took me 2 weeks to fix it up to standard. Then 3 weeks to get contract signed, so total about 5 weeks. but that’s like 2 months of rent.
For smaller house it’s easier to rent out
Currently the rent is 3750 for full house , upstairs 3 bd/1 bath, downstairs has unwarranted 1 bd/1 living 1 bath. with partial ocean view + all stainless appliance + new flooring, new fence, new exterior paint. comparable only for 3bd without remodel ranges from 3600-3800, so i think i charge them below market.
I believe if they move out in summer i could get it rent out within a month, 1 month loss rent i’m okay, but 2 months i prefer not to take this risk. And who knows in december if we are going to crash right?
And key is I’m giving them an option now to sign the same lease they originally signed for. only with improvement with the house.
I’ll let PM deal with them so i don’t have to. I think what i given to them is pretty fair .
