It sounds like you need to be pickier about who you rent to, around here people trash the places that have $500 a month utility bills when it only costs $450 to rent the house because it's clear that the land lord doesn't care enough about it make it cost less to live there.
But if you take care of a place and are picky about who lives there then people will seek you out to rent from you and they will stay there for more then a year, someone who lives in a place for more then a year tends to take better care of it as well, costing you less in repairs between renters too.
