I wasn't going to respond but after the past day or so I feel the need. Being a landlord is hard work. It is a part time job or more depending on the number of units. I have two that I manage - a condo and a townhouse - in a town where I live part time and I have a close friend and a son who back me up.

One year you can have a fabulous tenant and just one that's a total PITA the next. I'm fine with a true hardship story but sometimes the lies are amazing.

I bought mine hoping they would simply carry themselves and hoping for capital appreciation in about five years. Sorta,kinda.

But don't kid yourself - it's a job.
