ACCEPT RENTAL PARTIAL PAYMENTS THE CORRECT WAY PHOENIX PROPERTY MANAGEMENT
There are more and more people investing in real estate for retirement purposes. That means being a landlord is all new to them. Many people start by managing their own properties thinking that it is easy. It is easy when we have great tenants that pay on time each and every month. However, what do you do when the tenant does not pay rent for a month or two? This is when the new landlord gets confused. The tenant continues to tell them they will pay rent and fails each time.

PHOENIX PROPERTY MANAGEMENT TIME FOR RENT INCREASE
It is part of my job to analyze each property as it nears the end of the lease to recommend a tenant stays or goes. Plus, I inform the owner the market rental rate to suggest a rental increase on that unit. Yes, I do work for the home owner and not the tenant in this case. It is called having their best interest in mind. Now, many property managers would rather keep the same rent each year so they do not disturb the peace. However, prices are steadily increases such as taxes, insurance, energy … (11 comments)

The Phoenix Real Estate market is heating up in 2017. We are definitely in a sellers market with low inventory and high demand for homes.

BE FAMILIAR WITH ALL COMMUNICATIONS TO OBTAIN MORE CLIENTS
 
It has been my experience that most clients fire their current real estate agent for failure to communicate. This has been my experience when I pick up new clients. I always ask them if they are working with a real estate agent. Why is it so difficult when it comes to communicating with your client? We spend marketing dollars each month to make the phone ring. Then, there is silence between the client and real estate agent.
Now, I am very happy to pick up the low bearing fruit in my own backyard … (22 comments)
