"If you're an investor who struggles with digging yourself out of the day-to-day of property management, this is the book for you... It's time to start treating our rental portfolios like the businesses they are, and The Self Managing Landlord is your guide to doing so." —Rachel Richards, Best-selling author of Money Honey

As you start and build your real estate investing portfolio, one of the biggest challenges is learning to manage your properties. Becoming a landlord can be intimidating at best and disastrous at worst—so how do you optimize your business, avoid pitfalls, and set yourself up for profitable and ethical success?

In The Self-Managing Landlord, discover the secrets of efficient property management, tenant screening and onboarding, and scaling your business—all to help you break free from the 9-5 grind and create lasting wealth through real estate. Amelia McGee and Grace Gudenkauf, with 55 self-managed units combined, both understand the challenges and opportunities of being a DIY landlord. You’ll learn from their hands-on experience so you can say goodbye to frustrating property management companies and hello to efficient, money-saving self-management.
