A Landlord Epiphany

I just realized it is a Good Thing to be Facebook friends with your tenants. 'Cause when they post photos on their Facebook page, you can get sneak peeks inside your property and make sure it's being taken care of.

I am so blessed to have found such a sweet family to rent our old place.


  1. Good idea - and don't say much to them; let them forget you are there. Then you might get interesting information when you see something like (the tenants posting to their friends) "Yes, we'll go out drinking with you this weekend. Money is tight but I'll just pay the rent late. Our landlord will understand."

    :o/ Don't mind my dark sense of humor. I hope it does not come to anything like that. But you might get the inside scoop on more than their housekeeping. :oD

  2. Wow - I do not know if I would hook my tenants into my friends circle....

    I am going to ponder this though. And good for you to have a nice family. It means so much - I know!
