Many tenants can be hard on various things in their units typically flooring, walls, plumbing, appliances ... OK, everything. Most of these things will need repair or replacing during the tenancy or immediately afterward. You can often lose a month between tenancies as you fix up the unit before the next occupancy. The next few blogs will give a landlord some suggestions to help the bottom line.This may sound odd, but how about selling the appliances to the tenants as soon as they move in? And when they move out, as long as they are in clean and good working order, buy them back for a few hundred dollars more than what you were paid. This is obviously dependent on the length of their stay, and you can make it a graduated scale: if they stay one year, give them $50 more, two years $100, three years $150, etc. So who is going to fix the appliance when it breaks down during the time of their stay? Obviously they are, since it is not even your appliance anymore.

    Interesting idea but how many tenants actually go for this?
