It's rarely discussed, but there are two types of landlords - small mom-and-pops and large multi-unit often corporate ownerships. **They are two very different beasts.** The former will be driven to sell with the continued push for regulation, costs, licensing. The latter can more easily distribute and shoulder these costs. As a small 'landlord' with one very nice, cheap, safe rental priced hundreds of dollars under 'fair market value' I can say there is no way it's going to be rented again after our current tenant leaves. I'm not alone, and regional data backs that up. The risk/benefit/cost/gain just isn't there anymore for the little guys.
