Maybe Some Rent Money

My renter has been paying in small installment over the last few weeks. She is only working part time at her job and is looking for full time employment. She called me today to say that she is still looking for work but her job told her that she will go back to full time as soon as another woman goes on maternity leave. That is still 2-3 weeks away. But she said that if it was ok with me she was getting a roommate. Roommates can be tricky but at this point I see it as the only way she can catch up on the rent. I hope it works out because I do not want to find a new tenant. Replacing the old carpet in there is going to cost around $1500 and putting tile in, like I want to, will cost over $3000. That would certainly add a few months on to my mortgage payoff plan.

You put me right off having a rental house, the stress would just make it impossible. I intend to rent out the Crete house one day but i want cash up front for sure.

Rentals are certainly more work than I though. This tenant is pretty easy except for the money. At least she doesn't complain.
