And this is why this is such a great country! We get to choose what we do and who we do it for. While I agree with a lot of the statements on here, there are also a lot that I do not. Not all owners are greedy. Taxes are more, insurance is more, employee compensation is more, supplies are more, tenants are more, employees are more... EVERYTHING is more and you get less for the more.
I love my maintenance, and everything isn't about to pay. Pay isn't the reason the service industry is depleting; we told ourselves everyone needs to go to college when the reality is everyone should not go to college. We don't encourage trades. Hence it's not regarded in the same light as college but it should be.
Just because someone owns a property, doesn't mean they are rich, sitting on a boat drinking cognac and watching the sunset. Some work day jobs, and have saved to invest in the future.
