Overview

The practical path to real estate riches

Want to make money in real estate? Forget the glitzy "overnight-millionaire" claims and get down to business. The New No-Nonsense Landlord gives you the practical, nuts-and-bolts information you need to build real wealth over time by operating a successful property rental business. Whether you're already a landlord or would like to become one, you'll find proven solutions to every challenge the real world can throw at you.

Long-time real estate investor Richard Jorgensen shows you how to find and keep the most desirable tenants, make low-cost repairs that last, take maximum advantage of tax laws, and much more. He explains why your success depends on you, not on the properties you own and helps you avoid the many pitfalls of real estate investing. Through real-world case studies and scores of practical examples, you'll find out how to:

  • Select, finance, and purchase your first property
  • Make big money from small properties
  • Deal with government regulations
  • Manage the tenant-landlord relationship
  • Write a no-nonsense lease
  • Implement rent increases, evictions, and other unpleasant necessities
  • Develop a money-making strategy for your properties
