Rental Preferences

#1 Objective - LONG TERM
  - I am seeking a modest cabin, cottage,
    or isolated 40' trailer.
  - Parking for my Sable & '64 Spitfire.
  - I require Internet - Comcast is OK.

A rural setting in the Soquel area is preferred, but not required.
I will also consider the Capitola, Live Oak and Santa Cruz areas.
.

You may be a person with a property to be maintained, as well as rented for income.

Given the right situation, I could very well be your ideal tenant.

Other possible areas - Capitola, Live Oak, Santa Cruz

3. Rent amount

Best deal I can find
  - Depending upon -
     - a. Internet access
     - b. Privacy setting
     - c. Square footage

     - Location (nearness to town)
     - Washer and dryer would be nice.
     - A carport/ garage would be nice.
     - I have no pets, but I do love dogs.

.

4. Time Frame

I would like to move sometime before Dec. 2019, and I must move by Jan. 1, 2020.
I can move with a 10-day notice.

My website -
Vaughn's Summaries

Since I work from home, I could provide a daytime security presence (as well as night time) for your property.
I am also very good at fixing things, without bothering my landlord.
.

3. History -
References

I always pay my rent on time.

Stable - For the last 11 years, I have lived on Soquel-San Jose Rd., with great landlords. This year, I have switched to paying quarterly, in advance, easier for everyone.

However, they are selling their property, and I must find another place to live. I don't know about ANY buyer who wants a "built-in" tenant.

  and I can provide the following -
  - (if desired) -
  - Garden Watering
  - Lawn mowing, leaf blowing
  - Tree-trimming
  - General repair, general upkeep

I may not be available, but -

Dial 1 - 831 (if required)
then 464 then 8684.

Sorry for the inconvenience. Perhaps you have experienced these idiots, as well.

Vaughn's Current RentalWhere I Am Leaving
My Current Rental with 2 Cars -
600 sq. ft.

I am looking for a quiet, rural place -
something a bit LESS FANCY than this,
and
perhaps a bit smaller,
perhaps more isolated,
with parking for 2 cars.

Ideally, I would like a lot of brush to chop, trees to trim, ditches to dig, and leaves to blow.
But you can't have everything.

I prefer rustic to "foo-foo". I don't need "new".
I don't need "in town", "large", "remodeled",
"renovated", "upgraded" or "sky-high rent".

Got something funky? That could be just right for me.

I am very observant of neighbor's property, for security purposes.
Although tolerant of others, I am not big on B.S.

What you will get is a rock-solid tenant who will not let you down.

You may be asking yourself,
"Is this guy nuts?"
No, but I had lived in the same apartment complex for 27 years in Sunnyvale, which tends to focus priorities.
I just know what I want.

NOTES -

1. Rentals priced on the "high-side" may suffer poorer occupancy rates, due to tenants seeking more "mainstream" pricing, as they find other opportunities. Over-priced units frequently omit the Sq. Ft.

2. Rentals priced on the "low-side" may be less available, as tenants seek to keep their "better deal", and maintain their current rent.

3. For landlords who do not show square feet, is there a reason why? Such as, they may be asking for top dollar for their rental, and would not like it to be so apparent?
