Here are a few:

- Have a 1-3 year plan in place. This will allow some negotiating room with your rent, especially if you have a 3 year plan.

- Take good care of the place. Invite the landlord/landlady over to do a walk-through during your lease, so they can see how nice you've kept it.

- Work with an agent of your choice. As a tenant, you have the right to find a licensed agent and work exclusively with him/her. Typically, that agent will get compensated by the landlord/landlady; not by you.

Hope those tips help.

Try Month to Month so.... if your L/L falls behind on repairs or you decide to Purchase another property .... its easier for you to pack up with out excess cost on a lengthily contract.

WHO knows if you hit the Lottery.... you can give 60 days notice and Roll out of there!
