The good and the bad…

A year (and a half!) end review of our first experiences as a landlord:

The good…

We got a deposit

We screened well

Rent was paid consistently

They gave proper notice

They moved everything out

They cleaned pretty good. the kitchen is SPOTLESS. Yeah!

The bad…

The carpet is ruined

The hardwood floors are worn completely down

A door is damaged

The screen door handle is busted off

4/6 keys not returned

garage door opener not returned

Not too bad I suppose.

Tell me, does this before and after of the floors consist of “normal wear and tear?”

    What the heck!?!? Did they have farm animals in the house or something? Great danes?

    Yikes…that is some pretty excessive damage. It’s too bad they didn’t let you know before it got that bad. 🙁

    That’s what happens when you let the golfers where there spikes in the clubhouse.
    Definitely not normal wear and tear.
