This month's rental income was CRAZY, I have a young couple in their early 20s going to university paying $715 collectively just for the master bedroom, a guy in his mid 20s paying $455/month for the middle room and an older man in his late 50s paying $480 for the 'reject room' which includes the only parking stall. Talk about a cash cow! Mortgage was decelerated back to normal as winter is starting to set in. I live in the basement for FREE!

No foreseeable rent increases for a while... I just want to nurture what I already have! $1650/month = $2.29/hour.
