Why people hate LLs (by RentsDue [MA]) Posted on: Jun 21, 2019 8:24 AM
Message:

Today one of my state’s news outlets headlined a fairy tale that makes people hate LLs. They proudly displayed their “ data” that shows a tenant must make over $33.00 per hour to rent . They were basing their numbers on a 2 Br @ $1700.00 per month. I think they searched out the most expensive 2 BR in the state and went with those numbers. Besides, if it’s a 2 BR and there are 2 working adults then that number wouldn’t be an issue.We got the $15.00 minimum wage already signed into law, but any skilled worker is already making more than that anyway. The reality is that most of the LLs in the state are getting half of that for rent and we have one of the biggest housing voucher programs in the country... so the taxpayers are all paying someone’s rent. The “ advocates for the poor” are mad because our Governor just doubled the real estate transfer tax but decided not to give the revenue to a voucher program that lets slackers live rent free for life. Instead he’s using it to sustain a clean environment . Of the horror! The real problem is that most of our tenant pool won’t read past the first 3 lines . So all they get from the article is that it’s not their fault they can’t afford the rent.

My plan would be to advertise "I have CHEAP RENT" NOT THIS HIGH PRICED RENT. Cut out the portion of the article and paste it to the ad you have and place in your rental window. USE their own ammunition.

To me this is a beauty as long as you're not the 1700.00 rental? --99.103.xxx.xxx

David is correct. Wouldn't it be a much more accurate article if it read like this?

"Tenants are so eager to rent properties in location X that they willingly bid up the prices of rent to record levels."

But that doesn't sell as many ads as:

"Greedy land lords squeeze tenants for every last drop of blood." --173.20.xxx.xxx

Some jurisdictions governments fund extreme radical left wing tenancy advocate groups. One tenant said one of groups was receiving around half million a year where the chairs are actually homeowners. They talk about pigs then why not move out of those owner occupied houses then let tenant live there free then live in the government housing authority rental units. Come on show us that really care about tenants by actually invested in affordable housing instead of using that money to line pockets. They talk about reverse equity then come on show us how it works. --147.194.xxx.xx

People "hate" all kinds of occupations and generally also dentists. The stereotype of the mean landlord is out there though so just say "property manager" to avoid backlash from the ignorant. --173.61.xxx.xx

My niece lives in Boston. Her landlord just informed she and her husband of a $700/month increase in rent. Seven hundred. I think that they may be part of the problem. And it is a tiny apartment. --73.209.xx.xxx

There is a shortage of housing for many reasons, but not caused BY LANDLORDS.

The majority of people dont make enough money to buy a house, not caused by landlords.

The taxes, water and insurance rates keep going up, not caused by landlords.

The majority of people dont qualify for mortgage, not caused by landlords.

But they all blame the LL for there housing problems --73.227.xxx.xxx

As a collective group, LLs do a real crappy job with PR.

Our LL group has a rental improvement contest annually that allows members to show case how they improved the neighborhood.
