Quick money? Sjo, I had a different experience. It was hella hard work :Oits not that I hate them, but they shouldn't complain, they are in it for the (quick) money, and most people who are in property know that short term lets come with risks
Landlords aren't nice people generally. Because nice people who are landlords aren't landlords for long.
In my experience, I realized there are some real dodgy mofos out there that can misrepresent themselves for days. I still have one tenant that's actually good, but if I could sell the property for a reasonable price I'd do it tomorrow.
You need to have a certain personality to be a landlord and to enjoy it. You can have 5 good tenants (shoutout to the good eggs), but it needs just 1 bad apple to costs you tens of thousands of rands. In the one flat I had to replace the entire roof. Don't ask...
