management: Save the Money - 01/31/12 09:52 AM
One key to upgrading a rental property is to research. Researching comparable properties in your area can save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars. A foreseable problem a property manager can help with, is choosing how and what to upgrade in an investment property. Owners may pick up a property for pennies on the dollar and think if they install granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, they can charge astronomically more money than other comparable homes. The problem is, the market only allows for so much rent. There is a certain point in every neighborhood that no matter what upgrades … (0 comments)

management: One for the Owners - 01/31/12 09:44 AM
Too too often I see a sad story unfold before my eyes. Its part of the American dream to save money, buy a home, and whether its right away or 10 years down the road, to take that home and turn it into a rental property.

management: Screening of Tenants - 11/30/11 04:30 PM
To ensure proper screening of future tenants an owner/agent must set standards prior to advertising the property. This will avoid any possible claims of unfair screening and unfair denial of a tenant renting the home. This will also tell a prospective tenant up front that if they wish to apply for the property they need to meet certain standards, and these standards must not be altered or bent for any circumstance.
