Tips, Tricks, and Hints for Landlords
This website is a great place to get tips, advice, and free
information to make the process of being a part-time landlord both inexpensive
and time efficient. Having a full-time job makes the process of being a landlord
more difficult. I currently am an employee at a manufacturing company working 40+
hours a week and at the same time, I own six rental properties. Two of the rental
properties are apartment buildings and four are single family homes. I have a total
of 18 tenants.
Most people who I know can not believe I can carry a full-time job
and own that many properties that I manage by myself. I find it often takes me less
than an hour a week to manage the properties and most weeks it takes no time. This
website will give you, a part-time landlord, lots of information to allow you to minimize
time, effort, and costs that took me years to collect and that I currently use to manage
my properties. Read through this website like a book, page by page, to learn as much as
