Our quick and dirty survey of rental listings on AllHomes shows the new year getting back into gear with a big rush of new properties listed as available for rent.

One suspects this is in part some holiday backlog but next week will tell the tale.

If I were in the shoes of landlord, the last hope would be the traditional peak time in Feb, and the last straw would be the auditing report due the end of Jan.

I just had a tenant ask for a $20 a week reduction in rent. With many options on the market at similar or better prices there isn’t much you can do to keep a good tenant. Luckly good negotiation skills saved the day.

I assume this includes increasing numbers of properties which have failed to sell – For Rent/Lease signs replacing, or in addition to, For Sale signs seem to be more common now.

Probably why my landlord wants me to sign a long term lease.
