We have more problems with residents not picking up after the pets now. Don't know what's up with that.
The old days of "Pay Stubs" are fading quickly. Direct deposit is at an all-time high (unless it's just our areas).
I wanted to get some feedback from anyone who is using something different than "3 Times the Rent" to qualify.

1. 3 times the NET rent (I've always used gross)
This is why I feel all units should have at least 2 smoke detectors in the unit. I do not think maintenance should go to a unit overnight to change a battery. It probably started beeping a few days before and they got tired of it beeping when they
