I received an email from a reader, asking if I planned to to pay for our condo rental with cash (or check). Of course!
Here’s how I did it. First, I found the condominium that I wanted to rent. I emailed the property management company and asked if I could pay with a check. They assured me that I could, but that I would need to reserve the room with a credit card – just in case there were any damages. So, I reserved the room with a credit card, e-signed my contract, and dropped a check in the mail.
(As a side note, I did not cancel my credit cards for situations exactly like this one. As an alternative to my credit card, I could have reserved the room with my debit card.)
