There’s great money to be made in government subsidized, affordable housing. Occupancy is generally high and tenancies can last for years. It’s a recipe for steady, predictable income and high margins. On the management side, however, there can be challenges figuring out how to manage lower income, working class tenants and do it at a profit. Mike Bonadies, Co-Owner and Managing Partner at TerraVestra properties in Southern New Jersey, owns his own rental portfolio and also manages 500 units for other landlords. The properties are in rural South Jersey and are typically older, so in-house maintenance and construction are keys to Mike’s success.
