Renting to Friends or Family Without a Property Manager Pro? Bad Idea!

Renting to Friends or Family Without a Property Manager Professional? Bad Idea!

It can be tempting to rent your investment house, or condo to friends, or family members, but this is almost always a horrible idea if you are interested in maintaining amicable relationships with these "tenants" over the long term.

Like any good landlord, you've established an inviolable set of operating guidelines that have consistently proven themselves valuable in keeping you out of trouble. You have ALWAYS been burned in the past whenever you allowed yourself to slacken off from adherence to strong, well-founded operating principles.

So why are these same principles the 1st things to go out the window when renting to family, or friends?

Let's be totally honest.  For whatever deep seated psychological reasons, we humans operate differently when dealing with friends and family than we do with "outsiders." WE FAIL TO DO WHAT WE KNOW WE MUST DO.

A professional property manager stands as a liability buffer between the owner and the tenants -- no matter who those tenants might be! A professional property manager stands in for the owner and ensures that property management best practices are always followed consistently and fairly.
