In the post below, WHO would you choose to rent the house?
I finally decided on the young couple -- the guy and the pregnant girlfriend. She wanted the house SO MUCH, and upon close inspection of their application, he has a good-paying plant job (as forklift operator) and I wanted to give them a chance/break. At some point, someone HAS to trust you when you start out...so I decided I would give them that chance.
We shall see how it works out. They had the first month's rent and deposit...in cash. That is a fairly good sign.
Stay tuned for what happens in the future.
