For the last decade or so I have been a member of what we call.a property club. Basically it is a group of people who own investment property and we meet up once a month and share our experiences, tips, woes etc trying to help each other out. I have even taken some topics that have come up and asked about them on AAM because there is a wealth of knowledge here to clear up any differing views we might have. So thankyou AAM. Yesterday evening g we had out usual meetup and one of the guys mentioned that out of about 30 people who have e come and gone over the years that they reckon about 50% have got out of renting in the last 2 years or so, basically since Simon Coveny introduced rent controls and then Murphy twisted the knife even more. So a quick poll even showed out of the 13 of us there last night, there were even 5 who do only short term or airbnb now. And out of the rest , ALL of them don't intend on doing long term rental anymore once their current tenants move out. Some have even given notice to current tenants because they want out. Now this is only a small same, but it would be interesting to know how many landlords on AAM here got out of long term rental or are planning on getting out soon? The conversation last night was a real eye opener though. I knew it was bad , but it's worse than I thought. Is it just our small sample or is it widespread?
