    My tenants can't get credit to buy.

    Yeah, the banks made a mess, and somebody's gotta clean it up. That's what I'm doing.

    •  Where Do You Sell Houses For $35k? (0+ / 0-)

      Or apts. or whatever? I see your handle but where do you do business for that little money?

        ...for $35k. I rent. The value of the total rental stream is about $35k.

        I do this in poor communities on the Eastern Seaboard. Not NYC.

        •  So For 35K ROI Should Be What Per Month? (0+ / 0-)

          But you said in your numbers above that the housing was worth $35 and implied it wasn't worth your while.

          You're actually getting some fair %age of $35k/year I'd guess, at least 10-12%, hmmm-tedum...$300-400 per month?! You rent for that?!

          Cuz if it's more, you could afford to PAY more per hour, no?
