Another Banner Year doing nothing but Rentals

Real Estate Agent with The Rental Housing Centers 0225136182

This is my 25th year in the Real Estate business. People always ask me how I am able to "survive" by doing just rentals. Not to be confused with property management which I do not do.

I made 6 figures doing rentals in 2009 and 2008 and expect to in 2010. I say to my fellow agents How do you survive doing sales. Putting up with inspections, termite, surveys, loans and settlement problems.

Hey I don;t have any of those issues when I market a rental or help someone find a rental. I love the business!

Still to this day I am scratching my head wondering why people do more sales business than rentals. I make 4 times what the "avg" agent makes and I don't sell any homes.

One day, I'm going to train agents to do rentals and forget about the low income possibilities of sales :)

I will say that this only works in or near city environments. Not enough business is rural towns ect.

Obviously you are not renting the 650-900 a month range properties. Glad to hear of your success.

I do rentals as part of my business.  I am always surprised when I hear an agent say "I don't do rentals" and then in the next breath complain that they are broke.
