I don't want to be a landlord
Often what I would tolerate in my own home (Hey, it's an old cabin with basic amenities) is NOT what a renter or average person would want.
I can live with the 15a electrical
service, small bedrooms and un landscaped yard. Most folks couldn't. I would have to spend some hefty money on upgrades before i could, in good conscience, rent it out.
Mike is correct, overall, where I live is what most folks would kill for for a weekend jaunt to get away from it all. The "town" I live in is a resort (Tho it's a slum resort LOL!) destination for a lot of folks. Ever go rent a cabin and as you are leaving think "Gee, it would be so nice to live here all the time"?.. well, I do.
I have worked with my employer and am now "at homing" for a day or two a week. This is a pilot program based on popular request. I am the first, but we have added one more in the month I have been doing it. It has worked out well.
I even worked at home yesterday.. my day off. It's a good deal for the boss, and for me.
