What Investors Can Do for Relief During Eviction Moratoriums
With many struggling to pay their bills, eviction moratoriums have provided relief to renters across the country. But for landlords feeling the strain, should you offer shorter leases? I say yes! Years ago, I was a proponent of the longer lease, but I’ve changed my stance. If you’ve got a great property in the right markets, you should be able to quickly fill a vacancy. There’s no reason to lock a tenant into a longer lease.
I highly suggest thorough market research. If you’re investing in the best markets in the country, hopefully you’re not feeling too much of a pinch from eviction moratoriums. It’s essential to invest in markets with job diversity. If you are having issues with eviction moratoriums, I suggest reaching out to your property management team. It’s likely they can suggest local programs and other strategies to help during this time.

How to Use a HELOC to Pay Off Your Mortgage
In our book, How to Pay Off Your Mortgage in 5 Years, Natali and I lay out exactly how to utilize a HELOC to attack the principle balance on your mortgage. Essentially, you should use the HELOC like a checking account and use it to pay a large chunk toward your principle balance every month. In some cases, banks will tell you that you cannot use a HELOC in this way. I’d recommend speaking to a supervisor. If they still prohibit it, you’ll have to instead write a monthly check (from your checking account). If you’re interested in this strategy, definitely check out our book!
