Column: It's not bad, it's just different


I stopped by my townhouse on Monday. My townhouse. Here in Farmington. The one that I own, but have been renting out the past two years.

I'm in between renters right now. The family who had lived there for the past year has moved to Randolph, and I have a new couple moving in June 15-ish. Monday was my first walk-through since the previous renters moved out.
