People tend to think being a DIY landlord is the easiest thing to do. As property managers we can’t stress enough how important it is to really understand the reasons why a professional is a good idea when you start to have the idea of renting out a property or investment property.
It is completely business to us – not personal. We like our clients and we like our tenants. We do however know how to keep the lines drawn in the sand. We have compassion for people, but know when to keep the business practices in place to stay clear of any situation that could get muddy due to personal feelings stepping in.
We would never let a tenant move in without a lease. This may seem simple – but when family or friends get involved for DIY landlords – you can sincerely create problems from day one. We are clear with our process and expectations so that we understand what is expected of each party.
We have a tried and true process that we stick to that keeps you, and us out questionable situations. If it is something that deviates from what our process dictates, we have council that we can speak with to keep everything in line with professional and legal best practices.
When it comes to doing it all – we know you have your best interests in mind. We have been doing this professionally so that you can rest easy knowing you have nothing to worry about.
