I was in the same place you are right now.
I had a townhouse that I wanted to rent out but I was scared!
Just like you I heard all the horror stories about being a landlord.
I heard about the tenants that wouldn’t pay the rent and wouldn’t leave.
I heard about the tenants who called the landlord at 2 a.m. because the toilet was backed up.
But I knew if I could rent my townhouse successfully I would build equity in the house. I would increase my wealth and net worth. I would be well on my way to becoming self employed.
I took a blind leap of faith and became a landlord anyway.
I have to tell you.
Becoming a landlord was one of the greatest things I have ever done.
