Re: “Oakland's Biggest Landlord is Fighting For His Life in Federal Court

It is obvious what this landlord's motivation was by the sheer number of units that he purchased. There should be a law against such mass accummulation. No one *needs* that many units to acquire a livable income. Investors like Marr have no scruples. And this of course spills over into the maintenance (lack thereof) of such a huge number of units. It is clear that he doesn't care about people, only his bottom line. How could there be any question about this? I am a landlord. I put a large portion of the appreciation that I was lucky enough to see into improvements on my remaining units. And I resisted offers to purchase lots of units because I had no desire to "make a killing." And I lowered rents during the recession and have resisted raising them to the current crazy market level. That is because I do care about the people who rent from me. This should be obvious to anyone considering this situation. I wish the renters luck.
