Small things matter big time — especially if you want to graduate without debt.

When I look back at my life as a student, I realize the significance of this adage. And I was fortunate that I didn’t have to learn it in the hard way. Wait…was I fortunate, or smart? I don’t mean to humblebrag, but I think it was the latter.

Is Automating Your Savings Worth It?

is automating your savings worth it

In an era where you can do (almost) everything online, some people are choosing to automate their lives in almost every way, including saving money. With so many apps, online banks, and websites, it’s easy to think that automating your savings is a great choice. But is it?

Is Automating Your Savings Worth It?

This post has been written by our fabulous staff writer, Kimberly Studdard.

Below, you’ll find why automating your savings may be worth it, and also a few reasons why it may not be.

Makes Savings A Habit

The average American has less than $1,000 in savings. If you aren’t used to saving money, or if you find yourself spending your money as soon as you receive it, automating your savings can help foster healthy habits, as well as give you a bit of a nest egg should you need extra funds.

Your House is a Terrible Investment

house is a terrible investment

“Want to be wealthy? Then you should buy yourself a house!”… said the person that knows nothing about wealth building. Sure, buying a reasonably priced house is often better than renting, but it’s not a wise investment. Truthfully, buying a house is a terrible investment – one of the worst that you’ll probably ever make.

“What do you mean, Derek? I was always told that it was wise to buy a house, and look at home prices today! They’re going up like crazy!”

Let me just jump into it with the facts here…

7 Great Ways to Find and Keep a Great Tenant

find a keep great tenants

People love the idea of having rental property and collecting all that money each month. So, what’s holding so many people back from actually becoming landlords? I’ll tell you what.

Tenants!

The proverbial “I don’t wanna deal with phone calls about a backed up toilet at 2 am!” is what comes out of people’s mouths when you ask them why they haven’t taken the plunge (no pun intended!) into real estate investing.

Or the another common concern goes something like this: “Didn’t you read that story the other day online? These renters had sheep, goats, chickens, & who-knows-what-not else living in the house! They completely destroyed the place & then disappeared. No thanks! I don’t need the headache.” And they walk away from one of the easiest ways they’ll ever have to make serious money in their lifetime without hardly having to lift a finger.

get more profit from your rental property

Making the most out of a real estate investment requires landlords to reconsider their rental strategies on a regular basis. If you stop learning, your profits will likely suffer over time.

Top Strategies to Get More Profit From Your Rental Property

If you’re interested in getting more profit from your rental property or properties, incorporate these habits into your 2018 real estate management plan.

1) Decrease Turnover and Vacancy

As most landlords will tell you, fewer things are more trying in property management than constant turnover. If you want to save yourself from headaches and frustration—and a loss of profit—do all you can to reduce turnover and prevent vacancies in your rental property.

Turnover costs you more in the long run than you might think. You’ll lose rental income as long as the property remains unrented, which depending on cleaning and repair needs, could be longer than two months. . . . → Read More: Top Strategies to Get More Profit From Your Rental Property
