Rental properties can be among the easiest and most profitable of investments, year after year. And contrary to popular opinion, the real estate rental business doesn't require inordinate amounts of money, time, stress, and legal expertise. Here, seasoned investors and landlords Greg Dayton and Gordon Weidle, who own millions of dollars in real estate, deliver their tried-and-true system for making real estate work for you.
Dayton and Weidle's complete, practical resource demystifies the entire process of renting-including buying, preparing, screening tenants, handling turnover, refinancing, selling units, and much more. Under their guidance, you will avoid common pitfalls and steer clear of the cost and worry of high vacancy rates, collection issues, and eviction problems.
Filled with candid stories and real-life tips and solutions, "Prosper through Real Estate" includes expanded sections on legal and accounting issues; real estate history, retirement trends, and life plan strategies; sample forms and convenient checklists; and even a glossary of real estate terms.
Whether you are a novice or experienced real estate investor, this book will give you all the tools and know-how you need to make your dream of financial independence, security, and prosperity a reality.
