Consider the following scenario:
You decide to buy a rental home and officially enter the Wonderful World of Landlording.
Five years later, after reviewing all of your financial information, you realize that you essentially broke even - from a cashflow standpoint - on the investment.
Meaning, while the investment didn’t put any additional cash into your pocket at the end of five years, you weren’t required to put any additional cash into the investment either. So, basically, your rents covered your expenses.
Is this a bad thing?
