As an investor who has purchased a rental property, your due diligence is done. You know what you can expect with the return on your new investment, you know the cap rate and what your long-term potential profit will be. All the closing papers are signed and your dream has come true. You get to sit back and collect rent while your tenants take the utmost care of your property. You retire to the beach in Florida and the tenant continues to occupy your property forever.
