A rental property can be a fantastic investment, but no one will tell you that it's easy. Repairing and updating your recently obtained property is just the beginning. You still have to market your property, find the right tenants, verify their application, interview them, complete and sign lease contracts, and file every document related to this process. After that...well, it doesn't get much easier. Collecting rent, performing walk-throughs, addressing service calls, and general maintenance and repairs still await your attention. Plus, just when you think you have it all handled, you'll wind up with an empty unit...then the entire production starts again.
