What are the pros and cons of owning a rental property?


  • Your tenants effectively pay for your house.
  • It’s a great way to build long-term wealth. 
  • You get tax benefits.
  • It’s a passive side income
  • There is no shortage of renters. The rental market all over America is predicted to be strong for decades to come. 
  • It’s low risk. Even if the economy slides, people will always need a place to live. 


  • It might not be a good fit for someone who likes to be in control of their investments and doesn’t like the idea of tenants moving in and out of their property. 
  • The wear and tear on rental homes is greater than that of owner-occupied properties.
