Sort of like someone to watch over me. Owning your own property can be a daunting task. Owning rental property can be that much more so. My FIL owned some rental property at one time, and sold it off as he just didn’t have the time on his hands to take care of what needed to be taken care of.
Think of what it would be like to have a professional Real Property Management group take care of the grunt work for you. That would make it worthwhile. Even I could be a multi-unit owner at that point. someone to screen applicants, and to take care of the leasing and all of the detail tasks.
If I had that, then I could spend more time saving up to buy my Porsche Cayenne.
