Sort of like the stock market. Some landlords literally leverage everything to own and rent real estate. As the government watches eggs and gasoline increase, landlords too must keep up with inflation. Otherwise, they sell to new investors who pay more and they have to increase the rent to pay the new mortgage. Common sense. If rent goes too high, the tenant is free to move. The landlord still bares all the risk of loss.
