    The human population growth is not matched by the housing construction, so it makes the demand higher than the supply. It will increase the housing prices significantly. Some people with limited funds to buy a house will choose to rent a house for the first time. This creates opportunities for investors to gain profit from capital gain and income from renting out the house. This study intends to find out the factors taken into considerations for becoming a landlord. The data are collected by distributing questionnaires to owners who are renting out their houses (landlord) in Surabaya. The questionnaire obtained are from 113 respondents, then are processed using the factor analysis.
