I got an email from my property manager thatone tenant will be moving out mid-March becausethey are in the escrow of purchasing a property.And in the email, he also said that it seems likethat the rental market is cooling down as well,there was one property on the market for about 1month, and still did not get a tenant yet. It was so different from the past a few years.
Personally I think that those who short saled theproperty or foreclosed the properties are ableto purchase now. And they also saved some money for the down payment while renting. One of mytenants told me that the rent is actually cheaperthan purchase, and they will not have to worry about the fixes, property taxes, etc.
But the trend seems like changing, and some peoplestill like to have their own property.
