It cuts into your profit margin is you have to pay someone else. I know a lot of people pay property management companies to maintain and oversee the rentals, but that costs money. Also the best deals out there right now are for cheapo houses that have to be overhauled. If you can do it yourself, you’re keeping all those labor costs to nil. I don’t know, Keisha. Maybe you need to take a home improvement course yourself at the local community college and learn this stuff yourself. I’m actually thinking of taking a carpentery course myself. I’m sick of nagging my husband to finish with the trim in our house. Might as well figure out how to do it myself. How hard can it really be? I just need the knowledge. We have the tools.
