There is no reason why landlords must sacrifice their entire lives to managing rental properties--especially if they own just one or two properties. But still, more and more landlords wind up completely frustrated from the constant demands on their properties.
In his book, "Managing Rental Properties for Maximum Profit, author Greg Perry shares a foolproof system for managing rental properties, making money, and having lots of spare time. Other books on the market offer landlording advice for the big-time landlord, the owner of apartment complexes, and rental corporations. This book is intended for the less-encumbered landlord, someone who just owns one or a handful of properties.

- Attract desirable tenants
- Keep good tenants happy and get rid of bad tenants
