Two-year-olds and Tenants: Avoiding Tantrums in Your Investment Properties

40

Let’s be honest: some people are about as easy to deal with as a two-year-old in the tantrum phase; no matter how hard you try, there is no reasoning with the tantrum! As the leading  Anchorage property management company, we are well aware of the hardship that dealing with difficult tenants can place on property owners. But, are the tenants the only ones being unreasonable?

According to the Alaska Real Estate Commission, your home is deemed a business investment at the time it is placed on the market as a rental. Oftentimes this is a hard pill to swallow for homeowners who have lived in their home for a long period of time. People have emotional ties to their property and it can be difficult to negate those feelings in order to make profitable business decisions. These feelings can impact what is supposed to be a business deal.

Remember the line from the movie The Godfather, “It’s not personal, it’s strictly business”? You must be able to detach your emotional ties to the property and run it as a business. This detachment helps prevent you from being the two-year-old-tantrum-thrower whenever something goes wrong at the property. As a leader in the Anchorage property management industry, we can help you in this process and serve as the unemotional contact for both parties. Having us on your side ensures that neither the tenant nor you act as a terrible two-year-old.
