The Unique Struggles of Being a Young Landlord

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

We rent to my brother, but prior to our current arrangement, we were looking for a tenant for the time period between when the suite was ready, and when my brother was going to move in. Tenants are More Relaxed – In a Bad Way. We have some friends who bought their house when they were a little younger than us, and have always struggled with tenants.
