Landlord Recalls 'Newbie' Days & Shares His Top Tips
Posted September 14, 2016
Kevin Williams* picked up the phone and heard his rattled tenant say that there were flies in his apartment. Kevin said he'd be there soon. He swung by the hardware store for some bug spray and met his tenant at the unit. Kevin could have rolled his eyes and told his tenant to calm down. He could have told the tenant to buy some insect repellant and send a receipt with his next rent check. But he didn't. Instead, Kevin did what he's done since he bought his first investment property in Illinois nearly 30 years ago. He showed that he cared about his tenant and was committed to first-rate maintenance. Kevin knows that such thoughtfulness will be returned, enhancing his investments.

Strangers set up chairs and spread blankets as if it were a public park. Using smartphones loaded with a hot new game, the crowds played late into the night. Some nights, according to seniors who live at the site, groups of more than 100 people played Pokemon Go until 3 a.m., keeping the neighborhood wide awake. The center director finally hired a security guard to shoo away trespassers, some of whom had been urinating on trees and dropping trash on the property.
