But most importantly, you are going to love and care for their property and fill it with professional tenants who are going to respect and look after it. what this means to the landlord is that they can once again get a good night’s sleep knowing that their valuable asset is in good hands!
It also carries you further along the road to financially independence.
And in exchange the owner is happy to let you manage their property without interference (mostly) because you are the expert!
