The walk through on a property I own

A couple of days ago, I did a walk through on a house I own in a nearby neighborhood. It has four bedrooms, and a nice fenced in yard. I bought it so I ould have passive income. I read this book A Million Bucks by Thirty: How to Overcome a Crap Job, Stingy Parents, and a Useless Degree to become a Mllionaire Before (or After) Thirty, by Alan Corey. I found to very inspirational. Ok, he may have had different experiences, but the thought is still valid. By being smart, living below your means, and being aware, you can really get where you want to go. Alan had a goal, and he worked so he could achieve it. His avenue was real estate. I like the idea.  I rent that house out, and live in my other one. See, I bought the house, and someone else lives in it.

I was kidding with my daughter last night. I told her the house we live in is so minimal at this point, I can rent out the closets so people can live in them. I laughed, she was aghast. I ‘m still laughing.

So, back to the walk through. It went very well. The family that lives in my house, must have read the book. They have their family in it, and they have another family there, too. That was on my okay. So basically they rent half price. Genius. They take wonderful of the place. I have a rental agency taking care of the repair details for me. I might do it myself next year. Or hire my own rental agent. I can outsource just as well, if not better than the rental people.   

I’ll put some marl (marl is drieway gravel and sea shells in a mix) in the driveway, since they asked, and I wish them well.

Take care, all.

    LMAO! Hilarious. That is precisely where I’m headed. In my writings may I refer to you as Beth from Havlock, NC? I like to refer to bloggers/readers by name, city and state.

    By the way, I just ordered the book from Amazon. I’d like to be a millionaire too! Partly for the challenge of it all and because I want to travel, play lots of bridge, hire world-class bridge experts, and save for retirement. I’m proud to say that the millions will not be used to purchase shiny objects that depreciate and frustrate.

    What is marl?

    Oh … I just ordered the book from Amazon … a used one of course for $3.98. I love spending as little a possible for things.
