I lived in my rental for 12yrs. They aren't wearing it any more than I would If I were in it today. And unlike those who bought during the bubble I did not. You face those issues if you have a rental or live in your home regardless!


Exactly!  That's my point.  The only way to not have to pay for the wear and tear is to rent.  If you own the property, you are obligated to pay for the wear and tear whether you live in it or you rent it out.
