If boosting your monthly income by becoming a landlord sounds good but seems impractical, it’s time to rethink your approach.

An emerging breed of companies is making it easier for the average person to become a landlord. These companies help retail investors find, buy and manage rental homes across the country.

Investability, for example, provides access to more than 800,000 listings, helping retail investors search for single-family homes to become rental properties.

The company offers property and rental data comparable to that available to institutional investors. Investability also offers due-diligence documents like home inspection reports, according to its website.

HomeUnion — whose motto is “You invest, we can do the rest” — helps with every major step in the process of investing in rental properties. This enables you to profit from rental properties located anywhere in the country, not just in your area.

HomeUnion helps you with some steps, like finding a rental property and deciding how to pay for it, according to the company’s website. For other steps, it actually does the work for you. These include any necessary renovations and day-to-day management of the property.

Tyler Laprade, a 24-year-old software developer in Manhattan, tells CNBC that he brings in money from rental properties in Ohio and Alabama via HomeUnion.

Laprade was already invested in stocks but wanted to diversify his assets by buying homes

The PMO said in an email Trudeau noted the depth of the Canada-US economic relationship, with 35 states having Canada as their top export market.

The PMO email also said the two men reiterated the importance of the relationship between the two countries.

The two men also spoke in November after Trump’s stunning election victory and Trudeau invited the then president-elect to visit Canada at the earliest opportunity.

Saturday’s email said the two men “looked forward to meeting soon.”

Trump’s spokesperson Sean Spicer said “the president had a constructive conversation with prime minister Trudeau of Canada about strengthening the relationship between our two nations.”

“They also discussed setting up additional meetings in the days to come, which we will follow up on,” Spicer said.

Some of Trudeau’s top advisers have met with Trump’s camp in the weeks heading up to Friday’s inauguration as Canadian officials have been concerned about how Trump’s plans for the American economy might effect Canada.

Among other things Trump has vowed to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement and Spicer recently suggested Canada’s automotive sector might

British Columbia may have pulled up the welcome mat for Chinese home buyers with a 15% tax on purchases by foreigners, but the number of flights to Vancouver from China just keeps climbing. On Dec. 30, Beijing Capital Airlines launched a new service between Vancouver, Quingdao and Hangzhou. That brings to six the number of airlines from the People’s Republic now serving the Canadian gateway.

“YVR now has more mainland Chinese carriers than any airport in North America and Europe–more than Heathrow, Paris, L.A., Chicago and San Francisco,” Vancouver Airport Authority president and CEO Craig Richmond said in an address to the Vancouver Board of Trade Jan. 18, when he unveiled plans for a $5.6-billion airport expansion.

Capacity between Vancouver and Chinese destinations rose 25% in 2016 to 1.4 million seats. And once Hong Kong Airlines begins service in July, capacity to China, Hong Kong and Taiwan together will have gone up 46% in 18 months. Beijing Capital joins Xiamen
