Location: Herman Creek Trail - Nick Eaton Ridge Loop Hike, Cascade Locks, Oregon
Audio Book: The Book on Managing Rental Properties: A Proven System for Finding, Screening, and Managing Tenants with Fewer Headaches and Maximum Profits
Author(s): Brandon R. Turner & Heather C. Turner
So I chose this book as I have been very interested in the real estate market as of late and can't help but be intrigued with the idea of expanding into this realm. With housing prices steadily rising over the last 4 years, the question of whether the market is still primed for investment has been floating around my mind and if not for an equity investment perhaps a rental opportunity. This book was a great choice for someone like me with little rental knowledge and provides a dense quantity of tips/tricks of the business that I can see being useful for even some tried/tested landlords if for nothing else, possibly a refresher prior to any major tenant changes. It just so happens that Brandon and Heather are Washingtonians so it has a few notes that are specific to Washington State rental laws (nice considering I'm a fellow Washington-ite) but the two are quick to note that the topics discussed are applicable to any state which is for sure the case in their examples. Below are some points that stood out to me during the hike:
