Another Thing . . .

My rent keeps going up, but the place I live in is getting worse. The landlord has made no improvements in the last two years (at least). Yet he manages to find a way to continually raise the rent. When the rents are going up faster than the cost of living . . . somebody is getting greedy. I swear I feel like I'm in a movie sometimes: Once the landlord drove up in his new Lincoln Town Car to drop of our notice of rent increase . . . I figured the dealer didn't give him a very good financing option.

60% of Long Beach residents rent. Only 12% of Long Beach residents can afford to purchase a home in the City of Long Beach.

I’m willing to bet that most of that 12% already own a home.
