We had 3 deals fall apart at no fault of ours. 2 properties fell apart because of lending requirements, one was a condo and the owner occupancy for the community was below 50%, the other deal was a beautiful detached home with a Granny Flat put on the backside of the property, because the granny flat was a manufactured home we could not get a conventional loan... it falls in some type of limbo area between a manufactured home loan and a residential home loan. The other deal was a short sale which the owner decided to attempt to get a loan modification 4 days before closing escrow... which kills the short sale "I think the owner just liked not paying rent/mortgage" the property eventually foreclosed.
Out of all the deals those are the only 3 that feel though, all in all a good year! Looking forward to 2013!
Happy Holidays Everyone!

Also if anybody is looking for an agent that works all San Diego county to refer business to, I would be happy to help!

I own rental properties since 1987; 1st thing to learn: it will take more than 5 minutes to attempt and become a (succesfull) landlord...

I started by combing the Board Lease and an attorny lease; my present lease is a living document and envolving lease, since day one...

I'd sugest you hire a pro (at least for the first year) and learn as you go...

If your property is such that you can collect a 3 months upfront, call it 1st month and 2 months worth as Security (that will give you more leverage at the Lease' end and they might behave better because of it); I do not have a grace period; rent is due on the 1st, and a 3 days notice will be posted on the 2nd (they can always stop the process, for a price, but meanehile you start the clock running...)
Before they sign the lease, I spent 45 mins explaing it, line by line so EVERYTHING is clear to them.

Hi Snudo:
Rio Vista is more family orientated and a much more desired location. As others have said, if the price is not an issue, I would not hesitate to recommend Rio Vista. Victoria Park is a very quaint, nice area and quite safe, but I do not think the two compare. I have lived here for 28 years and know the market well. If I can help you in any way, please call or email me. Thanks,
Kind Regards,
