MAY I KICK THE TENANT OUT MYSELF FOR NOT PAYING RENT PHOENIX PROPERTY MANAGEMENT
 
It was just another day in Phoenix Property Management in 2017. I received a call from an investor who was a referral from another agent describing his situation. He informed me that the current tenant has not paid rent and believes the utilities are off. His first question to me see below:

PHOENIX PROPERTY MANAGEMENT DEALS WITH BED BUGS
 
Here I am today enjoying a restful day with my family on first day of this fine new year. Then, I received many texts from a tenant informing me that he has bed bugs. I received a few pictures of the little critters. This little critters continue to be a problem more and more. Nobody ever wants to have bed bugs.
 
What are bed bugs?
 
Bed bugs are small wingless insects that feed off the blog of warm blooded animals. It seems to me humans are the perfect meal for them. They prefer to hang out in … (22 comments)

phoenix property management: IS YOUR PROPERTY MANAGER LICENSED TO DO PROPERTY MANAGEMENT - 12/31/16 06:23 AM

IS YOUR PROPERTY MANAGER LICENSED TO DO PROPERTY MANAGEMENT
I have been pursuing an investor to manage his homes for over a year. The owner hired a unlicensed person to manage the portfolio. That means this person was handling monies on behalf of the owner with no recourse if any monies were missing. Furthermore, this person was conducting real estate without a license. How scary is this scenario? How did I finally win over the owner for the business? Fellow NYer here-we never give up.
The owner finally realized they needed professional Phoenix Property Management representation after a year of pursuit. I … (4 comments)

REAL ESTATE BUSINESS ALL ABOUT BALANCE IN LIFE
 
The one thing that I love about real estate is the ability to control my time. I am able to balance my work and family time which are both important to me. It takes a lot of planning both for work and family members to ensure that we are not missing anything while the kids are growing up. I want to make sure that I am there for my kids and wife.

ARE YOU STILL IN REAL ESTATE? I LOVE WHEN PEOPLE ASK ME THAT QUESTION
 
It was a normal day in real estate for me. Then, my phone started to ring. A name popped up that I have not done any real estate business in three years. However, I always stay in contact with my network through soft touches throughout the year just to keep my name in front of them. So, I answered the phone. We both greeted one another. Then, he asked me the question see below:

WHY AM I RECEIVING EVICTION PAPERS?
 
Many people ask how I work in Phoenix Property Management for so many years. Well, one must be highly organized and be able to work with people. I am really a glorified debt collector each month. I would say 98% of my tenants pay on time each month. However, I have to work to collect the rents from the 2%. There are many tricks to collect the rent monies. I do what others do not want to do when the rent is not paid. I am very successful at it.

MY LIFE AS A PROPERTY MANAGER BEHIND THE SCENES
 
I have been a licensed real estate agent for the past sixteen years and counting. I have spent half of my career in property manager. I told myself that I would never enter the property management field because everyone told me how hard it was when I first obtained my license. So, I stayed away from it for the first eight years. Then, I was given an opportunity to join a real estate brokerage that offered real estate sales and property management. The rest is history.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN THE BUSINESS?
 
Many of you would think this is a simple question to ask when speaking to an agent. However, it depends on the other person's tone of voice at the other end of the phone. I was speaking with an owner this week discussing their rental. They cannot understand why it has not been rented out by this time. The owner asked me
 
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN THE BUSINESS?
 
The person was trying to imply that it was my fault for the home not being rented out in less than 30 days. I quickly assessed … (15 comments)

I have to say that #3 is the most important in the whole process. The landlord-tenant relationship is very much under rated in my opinion. I know at Real Estate and Beyond, LLC, we very much take this very seriously. We go beyond the normal property management duties to ensure we have happy tenants. It has been my experience that tenants want someone who will listen, respond and be fair with each request. Again, we are … (0 comments)

HARRY'S TOP 5 WAYS TO AVOID VANDALISM WITH VACANT HOMES
We see many homes are vacant across the county. Also, many of them have been vandalized because they were vacant. I have seen many homes where the copper was pulled out along with the hot water heater and AC. The bank will not be able to sell a home without those things. Otherwise, the bank has to take a hit on the house to move the property. So, what is one to do? Please read over the simple suggestions to avoid vandalism on a vacant home:

TIME FOR THE RENT INCREASE PHOENIX PROPERTY MANAGEMENT
 
I wear many hats when it comes to Phoenix Property Management. One of the hats that I do wear is ensuring the owner is maximizing their rents when possible. I have found some owners avoid the annual increase when the tenants has paid rent on time each month as a reward to the tenant. Then, the other owner believes in rent increases each year to maximize their profit. Which owner are you? I can work with each one. Again, I work on behalf of the owner.

NOTICE TO VACATE UNIT IN 30 DAYS PHOENIX PROPERTY MANAGEMENT
 
Many landlords do not understand that they have the option to give a tenant a 30 day notice to vacate after the lease turns month to month. This means the tenant or the owner have the option to give one another a 30 day notice to vacate. The owner does not have to give a reason to the tenant why they were given a 30 day notice to vacate. The owner has choices since it is his real estate.
 
First, the tenant will be angry and confused they received the 30 day … (6 comments)
