Self Managed or Professionally Managed?0
I know many people who have invested in real estate. They love the idea of buying a bricks and mortar investment. They enjoy getting a phone call at 4:00 in the morning because the heat isn’t working. They relish the times that they have to advertise to find new tenants because the current ones have left without notice. They really like spending three days cleaning the place after the tenant gets thrown in jail (for a long time) and owes two months of back rent. While all of this is happening, they happily pay their mortgage, their property taxes and Mark down the street to cut the grass and shovel the snow.
Is there an alternative?
You’re right. I wouldn’t be writing this if there wasn’t.
Being a landlord isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. In fact, it may crack you up. There are worry-free alternatives to being a landlord where you don’t have all the headaches attached to it.
As you may know, real estate isn’t (generally) a short-term investment. There are people out there that buy and ‘flip’ real estate, however after watching some of those shows on HGTV it is pretty easy to see that it really isn’t all that easy.
