Do you have a preferred cable provider for your multi-family properties? What about gas and electricity? Did you know you can get paid by providers for the exclusive right to market their services to your tenants?

In this episode of The Real Estate Mindset podcast, Kevin Gardner and I chat about the money-saving and money-making opportunities which lie in the utility section of your multi-family home expense sheet. In today’s competitive utility market, property owners like you are being compensated by providers for the exclusive right to market their services to your tenants. While each of these deals differs from one another, as all properties are unique, these contracts allow you to increase NOI.

Plus, Kevin gives us his best mindset tips and what his definition of success is. In his words, success is something which can only be defined once it is attained; success is something you feel and something you experience, not something you can quantify.
