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.

True enough. My rental units are located in Oklahoma, I am located in Oregon, and therein lies the difficulty.

One house down the street from me was rented to the same couple for over 30 years. One half of the couple finally died and the other moved to a nursing home, which is why the house in now empty and has a "for Rent" sign in front of it. Talk about the ideal tenants!
