(don't think this fits in any other category, so I'll just post it here in the lounge) Does anyone here rent out houses or apartments for extra money? I have a few questions... - Once you get the house purchased (and fixed up, if necessary) how much work is actually involved with renting it out? Is it kind of a "set it and forget it" thing, where all you really do is some business paperwork and collect the rent every month? - If it is a lot of work to do, is it easier to hire someone to manage it for you? - Which is more profitable: renting out several houses all over town, or just buying an apartment building and renting out the apartments? - Is it possible to make a full-time income from this, and not have to do anything except some paperwork now and then and check up on your property manager (if you hired one) to make sure they're doing the job? Thanks!
