When a dancer from the city takes over her husband's rental property business in small town America, the results are preordained-chaos. What started out as a small side business for author Linda Wills morphed into a full-time job that lasted more than twenty years. In The Reluctant Landlord, Wills describes how she grew from being a novice in real estate into a competent general contractor overseeing several crews. Honest, funny, and self-disclosing, Wills delivers the straight story on how the rental property business works-warts and all. More than a how-to book, it's a how-not-to-guide to educate those considering becoming landlords. Presenting both the pros and cons and successes and failures of rental management, The Reluctant Landlord covers every aspect of the business-from the initial purchase to renovating and selling. In story format, Wills introduces many of the interesting characters and situations she encountered in twenty years. From the eccentric Hendon family to the Buddhist monk to Mrs. Lamar and her cats, The Reluctant Landlord portrays the human element of rental management and shows how one woman transitioned from dancing to dirt.
