Carpe Diem MD

In this post, Ian Cook compares two popular tools for managing your short term rentals: Your Porter and OwnerRez. With these tools, you can automate much of the day-to-day running of your short term rental. Your Porter has a nice iOS based app which allows you to run your business from your phone. OwnerRez is computer based, and allows for a bit more customization. Which one is better?

This week, I shared some more details about a crazy series of events involving the tenant in one of my duplexes in Indianapolis. How crazy? Well, it involved pitbulls, a car fire, and my tenant fleeing the state.

I expanded on the story and shared a few reasons why I now caution against buying property in rougher neighborhoods. Specifically, here were the reasons I discussed:

  • Bad neighbors
  • Higher crime rate
  • Lower price appreciation
  • Higher maintenance costs

The Prudent Plastic Surgeon

In another great post about money, Jordan Frey shares a simple formula to practice intentional spending. Specifically, this will help you make sure your purchases actually are purposeful, rather than mindless.

Here’s the formula: Make sure the purchase fits into your financial plan, and the joy from the purchase is > or = to the purchase price.

It’s a little like Marie Kondo meets Dave Ramsey.
