On the surface, being a landlord seems pretty simple-you buy property, find renters, and the money rolls in. However, as all too many people have found out, it takes an incredible amount of know-how and hard work in order to be successful at it. Idiot's Guides: Making Money with Rental Properties is written by experts who have made the mistakes, learned the lessons, and have become highly successful at spotting properties with high rental potential, buying them at the right price and time, and finding tenants who pay on time and stay for the long haul. Readers will learn not only how to spot the right neighborhood and property, but how to buy it, when not to buy it, how to find the right tenants, how to manage the money flow, and more. In addition, readers will learn what to do when things go wrong, what legal protections they (as well as the tenants) have, and how to do it all without going broke and losing their minds in the process.
