“I am happy to say that all my properties are rented with long term tenants and positive cash flow, over $10,000 monthly gross income. Because my properties are self-managed I am netting almost $5000 per month, after mortgage, insurance and taxes. Combining my rental income with real estate commissions, I have almost completely replaced my full-time engineering salary within the past 2 years!”
