Opinions needed !!!!
    #3555359 - 12/29/04 01:52 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I have the chance to make tons of money from rental property. I am being given this chance due to a reoccurring monthly bill that is not the most fun to make. Would I be selling out to Corporate America if I did this ?? Would you take this chance to make a ton of money or would you not ?? This will of course not come without work because you always have tenets that move out and not pay or break shit that you have to fix after they move. Overall the person that is offering me this chance made about 300 thousand last year and did not take this to it's full potential. I don't wanna be a dick and have a buncha money and horde it. I would love to be able to help people that have less money than I, with this I see it as a possibility. So anyway lend me your opinions.
Should I take the chance ???
You may choose only one
Dooooooooo it ... Oops yeah go for it
No that''d be dumb and selloutish
Yeah sure if you wanna be a sellout slut

Make a ton of money and then use it for a good cause. Donate to underprivilaged people, but also make a nice contribution to NORML or MAPS or something similar if you wish. Use your money towards the advancement of something you believe in.

Well, my husband is a co-owner over quite a bit of property, and I don't consider it selling out.  Seriously, you have to do what you have to do!  Just be careful not to dig yourself further in the money-pit.  If you think this would be a good thing, then why not go for it??!  :smile:

i say go for it jay. when you start making money, just think back to when you wrote this post and how you felt about it. think about how you were afraid of 'selling out'. as long as you stay the same morally and keep your basic values the same(unless they are bad morals and values), then i see no problem with making a bit of money. 'selling out' requires you to sell your beliefs and ideals of right and wrong for money, popularity, or selfish interest(s). hope this helps your decision and good luck, my friend.peace

I would never sell out my values, morals, beliefs, or ideals of right and wrong. Karma would kick my ass if I did that.

Nope ... The guy is giving me a property that already has tenets in it !! All I have to do is put the property in my name and start collecting the monthly check. He said he may go in half on me with some of his other ones aswell ... So I'd recieve 1/2 of the monthly payments.

Just don't turn into a scurvy slum-lord. The last place I rented... the owner hadn't been paying the mortgage on, so we moved out early before the bank evicted us and took the home.

hey jay...if you are gonna be signed over as owner you should find out about what kind of taxes you will be paying on it each year... make sure you know basic figures like average outflow of money per month as well as inflow of money. muy importante. you have possibly already done this. just make sure you find out *all* of the things required of you so as to not get in over your head.

Good thing about this rental property .... It's paid off. !!! I am also the kinda guy that if I see the tenets are having a problem paying rent I'd let 'em miss a payment to get caught up each month. I kinda need to not be so soft. I can'thelp it though. I know hoe it feels.


Danksistah

I will look into that. For some reason that had completely slipped my mind. Good looking out for me !! Thanks !

I know I'm not a sellout I just don't likw the whole idea of corporate America nd the fact that when most people get money they turn .... well they are different after than before.

I think you should do it since you are going to use the money for good.

well, i just felt i'd interject this little tidbit - where would the money you would be making come from? well, the tenents will pay a monthly rent. this will go building upkeep, property taxes, etc. but, you are going to be making money off of this? so, the tenents will be paying not just for upkeep and so forth, but also paying you for owning the building. now, if we look at it like this - why are you necessary here? why is the extra cost the tenets pay necessary here? couldn't the building be run collectively by the tenents?

don't mean to rain on the parade here - but i believe making money off of private property (ie no labour, work, or sacrifice - only invested capital) is something fundamentally wrong with our society. :shrug:

just had to share my opinion :smile:

Making money and being in "the thought" do not have to be mutually exclusive. You're not a sell out just because you have money.

Do it! Just don't forget your values and where you came from. Don't forget, The Grateful Dead are VERY rich people and they're still great people.

As Ram Dass said decades ago, "Money is green energy." There's nothing wrong with money qua money. It is 'the love of money' that is the root of all evil. And, as William Blake said "Energy is Eternal Delight." This is NOT to equate money idolatrously with Heaven or GOD, but money as energy can facilitate a spiritual lifestyle just as it can foster a lifestyle of animal indulgence. Be ethical and one can still make money AND develop morally and spiritually.
