Turning a profit as a landloard
I'm struggling with two perceived barriers
1. People factor: How do you make money if you can't raise rents to keep them in line with the market or even inflation? (Whether that be for legal reasons or because you're fond of the tenants)
2. Maintenance costs: How do you make a decent return on investment if I need to bring in a tradesperson or contractor every time something needs fixing as I am not that way inclined.
Thoughts and advice appreciated.
