You have to be a cold hearted SOB to be a successful landlord. Find out what happens to a naïve, kind hearted couple that entered this shark den with all the right intentions, only to be bloodied and battered by manipulative, devious tenants. Written in a witty, comical tone, the book provides lots of practical, useful advice for people interested in entering this business. However, plenty of warnings are given, as are outright pleas for you to “stay away”. Fully a quarter of the text is devoted to “laugh out loud”, true horror stories that make for a great read, regardless of your interest in rental property.
All the other books in this genre are generally positive on being a landlord, and many merely suffice to sell the author’s ideas or training materials. This book is not trying to sell any such thing. Instead, this text seeks to entertain, inform, and tell the truth about managing rental property. And the truth is frightening.
