I am not a licensed real estate agent, even though I do own a few properties that I use for rental income, but i have been doing this for about 4 years now, plus things have been very lucrative for me.
I have been lucky in finding enjoyable occupants who communicate well plus who make sure that the properties are well-took care of.
In fact, over the years, I have spent very little on apartment service, then part of that is because of my occupants plus the other part is because I always make sure that I perform an annual apartment inspection to identify any potential issues, as part of that annual apartment inspection includes Heating plus A/C service, a roof plus gutter inspection, plus I also make sure that the plumbing plus the appliances are in toiling condition, but every woman who owns rental apartment should make it their priority to have an annual apartment inspection because it could save them some money in the long run. Plus, It is always best to have a fantastic handyman on call and a fantastic Heating plus A/C tech. Part of owning rental property, there is always something to be fixed. And having these professionals on call to perform repairs is one of the best peace of mind I could ask for, and not only are my occupants ecstatic, even though I can rest assured that all my appliances are functioning in the most optimal way! Between the annual apartment inspection plus the professional service repairman, I can rest assured that all my rental properties will be well-took care of. And as long as I can keep my occupants ecstatic, owning rental apartment will continue to be a lucrative corporation for me.
