There are a couple ways to get earn extra rental income.  Maybe the outside of the property looks bad or the kitchens/baths are older.  A little TLC can really clean up a property and add $25-$50/MO of extra income.  A property manager will typically be happy to walk through your property to give you ideas of how to raise income.

Maybe you have carports.  Have you ever thought about renting your carports out?  Most people will pay $25-$50/MO for a carport.
