Landlord Musings

After suffering through a period where the property was vacant for six months, I have no complaints about delving into the world of Real Estate. Primarily most of service call requests are made during the cold weather months, as the home gets more utility. Obviously becoming a landlord isn't for everyone, but it has afforded me with another means of residual income.

Because the area I selected is full of people that would rather rent than own, I have been able to take advantage of the need. I suppose that one day this trend will end, but I still believe that I will be the benefactor of such a change of events. Additionally, there is certain level of pride in providing a quality home to a deserving family. Thus far my tenants have been excellent. Clearly a testament to an arduous selection process.
