OPM. Good one.


Thanks for sharing your background Joe.

"would eliminate debt-service and property tax pass-throughs, as Berkeley, Oakland and San Jose have all done in recent years. Landlords would still be able to apply for pass-throughs for capital improvements" ... sounds like this is already a thing elsewhere. Well, it's not Burlingame :-)


This happened in Fremont. They passed rent control and you have to now go before a board to justify any rent increase, even a dollar! Have a friend that after that passed, gave 60 day notices to their renters and put their two homes on the market and have now invested in commercial properties. The actions of Council have consequences and in this case, resulted in two renters now looking for homes.
