I'm on Bigger pockets, its a great forum.
Yes, the lawn and rentals both equate to $34k/yr net I make $50k gross with the teaching job and take home about $30k. They take out about 10% for retirement and $175/mo for just health care for a fam policy. They also take out about $100/mo for the union fee. Then comes uncle sams part.... but the thing is, I spend about 10hrs/wk averaged out year round on the lawn/rental biz. I believe I could do much better if I spent the 50hrs/wk I currently put in teaching on rentals and mowing. There's big money in the rentals.
