Summer rentals are outrageous.
I want to say how disappointed I am with a lot of the rental property owners in Juneau. I am one of the people who come to Juneau in the summer for work and have been doing this for several years. But not this year.
While I am not a rich person, I like to go where the work is worth the money. Searching Craigslist for a place to stay this summer has made me change my mind about coming to Juneau this summer for one reason and one reason only.
I am not interested in paying your mortgage payment.
The landlords advertising on Craigslist seem to think they should jack the rent up every year. This year, they have priced themselves right out of my budget. I think I am not the only one who feels this way. So this summer, if you find you have more vacancies than years before, you might just want to consider reducing your rates so the help will have a place to stay.
