Online Bill Pay for tenants to pay rent?

So, in case anyone is following my posts, we dumped the crazy tenant that couldn't have her money for 3 weeks and took the next applicants. They checked out perfectly and we love them already. They said their previous landlord had them use [more]

Re: Crazy Applicants

Well, the possible tenant finally called back late Monday afternoon. It turns out they "could not have their money until the 23rd or 24th." At least we know what their reason is. We told them we cannot hold the rent house and that was [more]

Re: Crazy Applicants

It is now Monday at almost noon. I sent them another e-mail and we have called and left a voice mail. We are giving them until 6pm. - we figure since they have a job, this would give them the whole day, in case they cannot contact us from work. Then [more]

How do YOU screen tenants?

I am looking for tips you use to screen possible tenants. I think Jonathan suggested that in the ad you tell them they have to have a minimal credit score of 600, so that you weed out some of them from the start. (Good idea - thanks) He also states [more]

Re: Potential tenant & odd situation

Thanks for the replies. I hope I didn't sound discriminatory regarding how many people could comfortably fit in this house. I guess I am really just looking at it from the viewpoint on more people equals more wear and tear on the house in general. [more]

Inexpensive camera with wide angle?

Hi Guys, I am looking for an inexpensive automatic camera, probably something $150-$250. One of the features I would like to have is more of a wide angle possibility. From time to time, I have to take photos of the inside rooms of rent houses, and [more]

Mounting house numbers on stucco house

I bought these house numbers that sort of have ridged pegs that mount them on your house. I have a cinderblock house covered with stucco. I was going to drill the holes for these pegs into the stucco/cinderblocks, and then I am trying to figure out [more]

Re: Help Teach and Old Dog New Quinoa Tricks!

We also serve it like pasta salad with some tomatoes, chopped veggies, maybe some feta, and some kind of Italian dressing.

We have found you can cook the quinoa, then steam or roast almost any vegetable separately (carrots, broccoli, [more]

Re: Window glazing on aluminum framed windows

Thanks tbear2! I appreciate it! They have some caulking product that is specially made for aluminum windows, but it looks like a gooey mess and the normal old putty looks like it will work better.

Window glazing on aluminum framed windows

We have bought a rent house with aluminum arched windows. The windows are missing some of the pieces of trim or glazing on the exterior. The "glazing" is actually what they call window glazing "strips" and they are made [more]
