Something to consider when investing in property

Sometimes it’s important to reflect on what investing in property means to us besides the obvious monetary objectives.

Is an investment property merely a combination of numbers? Or a place to house a family?

Do we push up the rent as high as it can go? Or do we place strain on the very renters who treat the property like their own?

Can we afford to spend $200 on painting some walls? Or can we leave the tenants to their own devices?

Empathy can be the difference between a portfolio that makes money and one that makes riches.
