I recently found an apartment complex for sale. I then updated the place and started renting it out. I am making a mint renting out all my different apartments. I hired a property management service to handle the rent and I have washed my hands with it. I have to say the best thing I hired out was apartment remodeling services. I am not handy whatsoever. I can’t even lay new tiles down. I found an apartment remodeler in my area and hired the guy. I told him what I wanted, he sent a quote and I paid for it all. All the rentals got new tile floors put down. I had a few windows and doors replaced. I then had new light fixtures put in, the plumbing check and the HVAC systems inspected. After that a fresh coat of paint was put on top and the place looked brand new. I have looked at what the rentals did before and what I am charging now, I have made a significant increase. A part of that is the way the economy is now. I can afford to charge more since the minimum wage is going up. Also, I am able to charge more since the place looks modern, fresh and new. I know that everything is updated, working well and the area is just great. It was a small initial investment to get what I wanted. Now I have a gorgeous rental property for an affordable price. I can’t quite live on my property, but I am one more away until I get there.
