It's a long-held belief that rental properties hurt the values of nearby homes.
"Buyers are definitely concerned about too many renters," says Herman Chan, a real estate broker in San Francisco. "People are less inclined to make an offer on a house that is in a street filled with apartment buildings (because) they perceive (the area) to be more congested, have less parking, and consider the residents more transient."

She's releasing a ding dong book now to make moola. Girlfriend is a hot mess! Apparently, the peeps at #SayWhat!? agree. They invited me as a guest host to talk Tori (it's kinda sorta NFSW but that's entertainment)! God, is gonna get me!
