It is Don's contention that too many people learn the no money down concepts and other fancy acquisition techniques and then fall flat on their faces because they have no idea of how to control tenants. Before they know it, the tenants are controlling them by not paying the rent. The positive cash flow property quickly turns negative. This can be easily avoided by putting as much time and effort into learning good property management skills as was spent learning creative ways to buy property.
