You know Eddie Boy I don't wanna be a sell-out but when The ToyMeister is Correct he's Correct. I would rather deal with someone from elsewhere also.

I feel like I got outta N.J. in a Nick of Time. I had the Jersey Edge. It has Subsided.

Toymeister just saved me a bundle lately with the Generator.

I was a Great Landlord. There was no misinterpreting the rules of the Castle. My Collection Department (ME) was fierce. I got the money every time. Most of the time just with a look and a little story. That's the Jersey thing Meister is trying to avoid.

Many thanks to everyone who replied to me, I appreciate your input. Fingers crossed I will get it right. BTW I’m originally from Passaic, New Jersey and have rented in Daytona, Siesta Key, Naples and The Villages quite a few times. Trust me, we aren’t all drama queens/kings! LOL thanks again!

Excellent advice if you don’t plan to be here in TV at the same time...

Thank you all so much, some great advice in these replies I must say, and as a newbie things I had not thought of. Much appreciated.

I have two rentals for over 10 years. Now most of my tenants are repeats and I keep them rented 10 months a year. I have only had two bad tenants over that time period and they just left the place dirty. Didn't think about it and probably wouldn't change anything, but one from NY and one from NJ. Interesting.

Anyway I have rented and have repeat renters from Canada, Iceland, Germany, UK and Thailand with zero issues. From all tenants I get a decent deposit, $750 for the first month and $250 for each additional month unless they are a repeat, than only the $750. I get my rent the first day of the previous month. So January rent is due December 1. I have had very few problems with any tenant. A broken dish here and there and they always tell me, a golf cart not filled with gas when they leave, so I charge them for the gas and my time to fill it. And I don't work cheap. But all in all it has been a positive experience with very few problems. And both homes have been paid off with the rental income as I always put 100% of profits back into the homes. I am running out of things to upgrade at this point so probably time to sell them and buy new ones.

How about some input from a "renter"? I have no way of knowing how many of us there are, but there is a population of long-term renters here. We choose to rent for various reasons. We pay amenities through our rent. We pay for all utilities and landscaping upkeep, again, through our rent. Same goes for water, trash, etc. We pay everything that the owner pays, plus his/her profit. We treat these homes as our own, and take a lot of pride in our community. It is very likely more expensive to rent long term, than it is to purchase. I hope that we are looked upon as true members of the community, and not just "renters". Given some of the comments here, I really don't know.

As a previous renter myself let me assure you I consider all the fellow renters I’ve had the pleasure to meet in TV are responsible, caring and look after the home they are renting with the same care and pride they would in their own home. My husband and I have been fortunate in becoming friends with the folks we have rented from. I have never invested as much as I have now in purchasing our villa and we only wish we could retire here full time, but we are from the U.K. and private healthcare for the 2 of us would simply be too expensive. Purchasing a villa means we will be able to come enjoy TV for a few months each year, hopefully twice a year, and hopefully rent it out in the peak months and again in between our own visits. For me it’s been kind of scary going for this venture, especially actually living so far away. I’m just trying to get as much info as I can to assist us, I certainly haven’t meant to cause any offence with any of my questions. I appreciate all the advice and information I’ve had here.
