Are you maximizing revenue from your real estate investments? If you have rental property, there are literally hundreds of ways to make extra money. I often thought if I had 20 properties to take care of that it would be a full-time job for someone, possibly me. In addition to the rental income, at a time I was running a small lawn care company, trying to generate enough money to live on. That mowing, plowing and miscellaneous maintenance also generated capital to kick-start my seed money for real estate investing. Never underestimate the power of saving money, or the ability of a side gig to create a lot of extra capital. Every hour you spend making money for yourself, is an hour less you have to work for someone else.
Now that I have my rentals, I always look to save money or generate new revenue streams from my tenants. I am not looking to gouge them, but for ways to leverage my skills and their money.
Here are a few tips that I have either done, or have thought about doing. Actually I have implemented all but one of them, although not every one on every tenant. Most are common and not rocket science, some are not.
If you have ever wanted to quit your full-time job, and wondered how it would be possible with only a few rentals, this could be a way to help with your ticket out of the drudgery of working for a boss.
