He also had a policy I liked. He sat with every new tenant and made them a promise. As long as the rents came in on the 1st, every month, and he wasn't bothered with menial tasks, he would never increase the rents. Likewise, if something major occurred (a/c quits, oven breaks, etc.), he would have it repaired immediately, if not sooner. He stuck to his word and most tenants were with him at least ten years and counting.
So yes, everything is negotiable. This is just from a landlord perspective (and I am not a landlord or property manager). And just as posted before me, I think the landlord controls the market now. But good luck to you, hope you find a home that suites your needs!
