The Hunt is on
We got a call last night from our tenants letting us know that they are going to be breaking the least and moving. Now this comes at a time when we just decided that I was going to stay at home with the boys, which means one income and now two mortgages. I am not a happy camper. But I am trying to remain clam, even though inside I am freaking out.
We have had these tenants for almost two and half years. They are our first and only tenants we have had. They have done a great job maintaining the place and their rent is always on time. Work is moving them to Texas so they will be moving on next month. Keeping this house and renting it was a big leap of faith for me; I wanted to sell it my husband wanted to rent it. He has done a great job finding the tenants quickly and making sure they maintain the place like we did. The were great tenants and are going to be hard to replace. Again my first instinct is to sell but I know we will try and find renters. I just don't want to have to show the place and clean it up and maintain it until we do. I just have to remind myself everything happens for a reason. There is a reason the tenants are moving out. I am just not sure what that reason is. I can do this, I know I can and my family will be alright.
