You never wanted to be a landlord, it just happened. The market turned and the price you could sell your home for was way lower than you could stomach, so you decided to rent it. After all, how hard could it be-right? Put up a sign, show the property to a few people, have them write you a check each month. Right?
So after a few late night emergency repairs, a few "I lost my job so rent will be late" excuses, a few concerns about what the tenants are doing to my house, maybe it's time to hire a propery manager?
Professional property management, while not the magic to making everything go smoothly, can act as the advisor and middleman you could need to manage your home. Answer the phone, weed through the excuses, and keep you from being called all hours of the day. And the cost is normally between 6-10% of the monthly rent, a small price to pay to get your life and peace of mind back!
Maybe its time you hire a property manager?
