    Imagine if landlords decided to strike. The consequences would be…

    There’d be noone to…

    The land doesn’t lord itself you know!

    Satire is no excuse for landphobia, you’re still putting out problematic content that could be taken out of context and weaponized to trigger Persons of Land. Delete this

        Chin up, king. At least we can sleep each night knowing we’ve done a long day of hard and honest work, unlike these lazy leech rentoids.

            With rent spikes that low, you’re basically running a charity, and I bet you didn’t even hear a peep of gratitude from your ungrateful tenants. Raise those rents even higher bro, at least $100 for each nail you hammered. You deserve it for all that thankless toil.

    I can never tell if the comments on these posts are made ironically or if there really is a large percentage of people who think being a landlord is a real job

        I feel like landlord can be a real job, if you actually maintain and upgrade the property and charging a reasonable price. That’s different than a landowner who pays some schmuck to manage it for them, pays the manager shit and charges the tenants unreasonable sums simply bc they can.

          Unironically like my landlord. He leaves me alone, I leave him alone, and my rent only went up $50 in the 3 years I’ve been here. He’s fixed 1 major issue in that time because I take care of my shit.

          Personally, the less interaction I have to have with my liegelord landlord, the better.

          But it doesn’t stop most of them from being money grabbing assholes. But the real problem is those speculative investment house flippers putting $10000 and a 6-pack into a home and marking it up 50%

          And the fucking zoning committees ლ(ಠ益ಠლ)

          I’ve been renting my entire adult life and I’ve required maybe six hours of effort from my landlords in that time. It would take thousands of properties to keep someone honestly employed full time managing them.

            Idk people like you or me might not take up a lot of maintenance time but I had property manager previously who was also a landlord who was actually there all the time in a building of around 13 units doing actual work. He only had one other building as far as I know and kept pretty busy. But then, he wasn’t a “landlord” in the sense we’re discussing. He owned the buildings and maintained them.

        I agree that not all landlords are bad (and not all tenants are good) but I have a hard time believing anyone becomes a landlord to “provide homes to families”. It’s an investment, a source of income.

          A majority of the white collar people I work with brag about how many homes they own and rent because it’s the best investment they ever made without having to put much work into it. One of them rents out his deceased mother’s house left to him in a will for $9000 a month to a family of like 12 with 4 generations in it and it’s only like a 4-5 bedroom house.

          He isn’t doing it to provide, he’s doing it because it’s good money. Stocks don’t get you that instant cash back like renting does.

          God I hope it’s a bubble and I hope they all end up destitute trying to sell the houses. I don’t even fucking care if I get it worse, I can’t compete, and they all have like 3+ houses a piece.

              Sure my direct acknowledgement of it is anecdotal but it doesn’t change the fact that first time home buyers are way down and people buying property for investing are practically an all time high. In Canada investor buying is a third of all house purchases and at best they will rent for additional profit.

              Edit: also what the fuck does that even mean? Literally just added nothing to the conversation and strawmam for what? That’s not how people talk and you don’t seem smart for saying it.

      Ironic humor isn’t a thing. If someone says something and then backpedals and says it was ironic, it’s a lie and they’re just scared of being judged for takes they know are stupid. It could be satire or sarcasm, but considering how landlord meme subreddits are I really doubt it

        I think There are some genuine humour/satire cases, but on the whole I agree that ironic humour leaves the door open to actual bad actors. We’ve got to be able to drop the mask and say that no really landlords have no right to complain

      Geldadel (money aristocracy). It didn’t even change that much. In the past their excuse was religion now it’s “proficiency”.
