Hollywood Book Festival Honorable Mention–Best Non-Fiction
Jesse Brewer writes a handbook for landlords, with humor and real life stories, and whether you are an experienced landlord or a wannabe landlord, Tenants Uncommon is a resource you will keep close!
Brewer believes this is the best possible time to be a landlord. Due to the mortgage meltdown and a staggering number of foreclosures, more and more homeowners are opting to rent out their properties rather than sell them at a huge loss. He points out that as a landlord, you won’t spend much time relaxing on your sofa, surfing channels, and accumulating piles of dough. You will work hard for every penny. So be forewarned: your most important duties fall into three simple but time-consuming categories.
