The dirty little secret about landlording and rentals is that more than a few of us have made substantial bucks doing it. The horror stories make for good conversation and keep all the multitudes out of the business. Crazy tenant stories are more fun than losing 75% or more with BofA or Enron or having half your stock holding value go POOF for no good reason. At least with crazy tenants you have a target to fix blame upon.

I've never had any rentals and don't plan on it. I like being free and with my temper being what it is I think I'd end up in jail. Somehow I know I wouldn't be good with folks smearing Poop on my walls.
