About the Book

Are you wanting to invest in real estate but are worried about how to manage property and deal with tenants? My 25 years as a landlord has given me the stories and the experience to write a how-to book that reads like a novel. Why make your own costly landlording mistakes when you can learn from mine?

This easy-to-read book takes a fun, yet practical, run through all the necessities of landlording.

The stories give a humorous look at what can happen. One tenant thinks it's OK to cut a cat door in the front door of her no-pets apartment. Mr. Tree Hater poisons a heritage elm so he won't have to rake leaves.

The Getting it Right section of each chapter tells what needs to be done to manage each area of your rentals from pets to evictions, followed by a Checklist of the steps to success. All the Rental Forms you will need are included, ready to duplicate and use.

So You Want to be a Landlord? Good for you! With this easy-to-read landlording guide, you and your tenants will both be winners.
