Only a few things come to mind...

* If it becomes unprofitable, for whatever reason.

* If I knew I had to get out due to stress on family and there was no reasonable way to cure it otherwise.

* If I became the replacement drummer for Iron Maiden. Even then, I'd maybe just train my own PM.

another bed bug infestation !! it's been a few years but very costly to deal with.

general "tired of it all". I was to that point several years ago but I sold a few places and purchased a few so my frustration level dropped.

Over regulation at city, state, or federal level that becomes too annoying.

If Texas reverts to a tenant friendly state, I don't need the headache's.

Reward/Risk for rentals makes other options more atractive.

Loss of health, mental sharpness, or desire. --50.26.xx.xxx

Rent control. We have a DeBlasio wannabe "progressive" as our mayor here in Philly. The dependent class and the guilt ridden progressives can together outvote those who value free enterprise and accomplishment. No rent control yet, but heading in that direction. Issue they are pushing right now is nonrenewal of lease only for just cause. Of course, that only applies to the landlord; the tenant would still be able to decline renewal with no reason needed. --73.141.xxx.xxx

Section 8, The City Government, The County Government, the County Health Department, the Housing Department, Rent Stabilization Organization, Building and Safety, the Genera Manager, Code Enforcement, REAP (Rent Escrow Account Program) and my insurance carrier are all liars. They will say anything and do anything to increase revenue. They do not care about tenants safety, only taxes landlords. --47.156.xx.xx

NE,

Lack of profit.

In my 41 year of LLing the govt is ALWAYS increasing interference so I just adjust and make a few more bucks to pay their new fees.

Back in 1977 LLs were threatening to quite because of govt. Every year more complaints. Bit I'm making more now thatn I ever dreamed, even with more govt nosiness.

I drive my Porsche past City Hall and think about how much more I make than the Mayor, inspectors, etc.

Life's too short to drive a boring car. Boost your self-image by stepping up a bit!

They majority option is ..... BIG GOVERNMENT !!!!!!

This omnipotent punishing BIG Govt happened on our watch. We let it happen.

Freedom and liberty are NOT passed down through the generations.

I specifically have a TAX clause in my lease in bold underlined and bigger font to make tenants become responsive voters. I take extra time to make sure they know everything that the govt does gets passed through to them somehow. --24.34.xx.xxx

I'm torn between getting out now or at least cut ours down by half. This last turnover was horrible, fleas, lice, junk left in house & yard. Broken/missing windows and torn up doors, piles of garbage stored in outbuilding, nasty mattresses, pots & pans, canned food left like they were "raptured" but pretty sure that wasn't possible.

Every time I start fussing about selling hubby reminds me he doesn't want to keep paying Uncle Sam 15%!

Not all of them are this bad, but it is just too many too close together. This guy even told the neighbor that my husband poisoned her dog! Good thing she didn't believe him. --71.219.xx.xx

I think the line will be when I can no longer do most of the maintenance and opeartions of the properties.

In Toronto, rentals are pretty much cash flow negative or at best break even unless they are paid off. (And if they are paid off then there is no mortgage interest to offset the rental income and the income tax payable skyrockets!)

Once I have to start paying others to maintain and run the properties, I dont think the returns will make sense anymore. --70.31.xx.xxx

Pat, at this time of year dogs are poisoned by mushrooms that pop up in the yard. That's probably what happened to the dog. The local emergency vet sent out an email telling people to go out in the morning to get all the mushrooms before letting dogs out. I use a bread bag over my hand and then just toss that in the garbage. Sometimes there are more by afternoon if it's been unusually wet. Symptoms are drooling, unable to walk, vomiting, diarrhea, or not wanting to get up. --73.178.xxx.xx

A recent Gallup poll revealed that a plurality of Americans view the government as the No. 1 problem facing the country.

Immigration, which was the top concern in July, dropped to second place. --24.34.xx.xxx

Profitability, when it no longer makes financial sense to do it. I know I will get old(er), I need to adjust my business model to accommodate less hands on involvement from me. Government regulation happen, I need to adjust my business model. Only if there are no adjustments to be made to make me profitable will I exit. --108.51.xxx.xxx

So far in 33 years I've never had anything thrown at me that made me want to say – – no to apartment ownership.

Tina problems,, the government whatever from my perspective it is still the best passive way to make money.

I did pay my place off in 2002 so I don't have to worry about the mortgage every month. In 2009 during the government -induced depression –, the net income from my apartments and Social Security let me take a months tour through Alaska which I love very much. I am a prudent guy with my money, plus security and also the net rent from my 6 flex allows me to not have to work. However, I have no desire not to work. My apartments are in Tempe next to Arizona State University. I'm always afraid because Tempe is a student town someday will have rent control like they probably in Berkeley California and another sort of student-run cities. Here in Arizona as I believe and I hear, we have renter oriented instead of tenant-oriented rules and regulations. Thank God for that! --24.251.xxx.xx

Agree with AllyM

If govt. brought the unqualified to my building and said I must take them and deal with the nonsense, that’s when I will sell all my properties and quit the business. I can’t stonach the freeloading leaches.

Good point Ally M. Vote this November because if they get in we will all be on Welfare and food stamps. AllyM you’re my kind of business colleague. --172.58.xxx.x
