My sister and I have been talking a lot lately about growing old. We have two grandmother-aunts who remained single and are now dependent on relatives like us for care and support. I told my sister that I don’t want to end up like them. You see, my sister and I don’t have any plans of getting married. We are happy being single and all we want to do is earn money so we can travel a lot for as long as we still can. We are still in our 30’s but we thought it best to prepare for our old age now rather than wait for your knees to start knocking and our joints to start aching.
One plan that we have is to put up a couple of small businesses that we can rely on in the future. A source of income so we can travel a bit and save a lot. One business that we have in mind is an apartment complex. I guess it’s not really a small one but as my sister said, we can start small. Two-door apartment first and when we have more cash to spare, then a couple more doors to add to it. But we need to be wise about that kind of business, I told her. Better do a tenant background check because I don’t want a bad tenant. She agreed, of course. Now, I am checking out an online service from Tenantify wherein they will do the tenant checking on the landlord’s behalf for free! All a landlord has to do is sign up in the service, request information on either employment or income, or both, from the tenant, and then let Tenantify do the work for you. Wait for results and in just one business day, you can decide if you want the tenant or not.
