forest lakes: Sorry....THAT Does Not Happen in MY WORLD! - 01/03/15 09:27 PM
Finding out when rental prospects are moving is one of the first questions I ask in my PRE-screening routine.
 
Prospects coming from a "migration site" like Zillow, Move/Realtor, Trulia (sorry ActiveRain) do not see when a rental property is available so they often go through the FRUSTRATING process of filing out an inquiry form thinking that someone will call them.

 
NOT IN MY WORLD!  I don't know where they are,  what time zone and if I call them and they don't answer we are in phone tag and they can then call me back AT ANY TIME with the … (3 comments)

forest lakes: Want a Home With NO PRIOR PET in Residence? GO BUY NEW CONSTRUCTION - 07/22/14 10:19 PM
Life continues to be a challenge for many passive-aggressive rental prospects new to the area's rental market.
 
A rental prospect contacted me this AM with questions that were easily answered on the property listings on my web site AND wanted my assurances that there had been no CATS at the properties.
 
....like EVER? I wondered.
 

Unless she is going to find a new INVESTOR OWNED property that has never been lived in/had pets in and is willing live with the "out gassing" of the new carpet, I could never advise anyone that there had been NO CAT … (11 comments)

forest lakes: It's NOT ROCKET SCIENCE People! Take CARE when you Take Pictures... - 11/10/12 11:47 PM
One of the DISADVANTAGES of using a real estate agent as your  property manager is that they may do what you want them to do when you want them to do it.
This is a PRIME example of an UNsold listing that has become a home for lease.  I suspect the NEW property manager agent was told to "come take a picture of my house" and did not realize that some work needed to be done FIRST.....take off the pumpkin decoration from the lamp post and the spider from the front door, clean the LEAVES from the roof and gutter and … (7 comments)

forest lakes: I'm sorry! I'm in BUSINESS as Property Manager - 04/16/12 09:43 AM
I suspect because he got a recent one of my DIY landlord mailings, a military homeowner e-mailed me that he has self-managed his local townhouse for 8 YEARS * from his station in EUROPE.......and he needs my help.

His current tenant is moving out in June, his new tenants are moving in a week later and he has hired a local "handyman" to do repairs to the property.
He wants to hire me to 1) check out his current tenant; 2) tell him what he needs to do; 3) check the repairs that his local "handyman" will be doing before … (20 comments)
