Remember The Littlest Landlords

The Small Property Owners of San Francisco Institute, small describing the properties and not the members, has appointed an Executive Director. According to an press-release emailed today, Peter Reitz will assume the post at the Institute, a non-profit lobbying organization for the presumably for-profit landlord."Most proponents of rent control laws suggest that keeping prices down allows for affordable housing in otherwise expensive neighborhoods, increasing the economic diversity of urban areas," said Reitz. "In practice, rent control leads to the opposite, creating an incentive to stay in a rent-controlled apartment indefinitely. Hardest hit are people relocating to the area or those who want housing that is better suited to their family size and needs." Nice start, dude. Family size? Landlords rent to families? Now that's a revelation.
