"..don't appreciate the needs or perspective of people renting" Well there I'd disagree. I'm in business and tenants are my customers, so their needs and perspective are very much part of my business. What I really don't appreciate is the epithet 'greedy' being used as a prefix to my business. If I were to sell my properties, they would be sold for the best price I could get in the market. No-one would have the least word of censure. I would not be described as a 'greedy' homeowner. Landlords will rent properties for the best price they can get on the market. That's good business practice.
