I find that there is no better motivator than a rent credit upon the sale of the home. $$$ is the great equalizer. When I am trying to convince a renter to do something I want (aka clean a unit for showing or allow access) Nothing makes it happen better than the possibility that they may get something from doing it. Dont give anything up front, the possibility is enough.
Ballard is good. Fremont is better. Dont miss the old guy playing piano... he's fantastic
