Real estate can be a great investment and a fantastic way for investors to create a steady stream of passive income. But managing your rental properties can be a bit of a headache, especially when it comes to maintaining the yard, painting, taking care of the floors, and avoiding a plumbing emergency on a Sunday or in the middle of the night.
As a landlord and homeowner, you know how taking smart, proactive steps can save you loads of time and money and plumbing is a perfect example. For instance, by only flushing toilet paper down the toilet, you rarely have to worry about toilet clogs.

As the Benjamin Franklin saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
