Myth vs. Fact Series

Managing a Property Means Just Collecting Rent and Handling Maintenance Calls.

This is a Fact!

Property owners need to constantly be aware of liabilities involved with owning a rental property, their insurance coverage, and obligations to the tenant. They should also be aware of Tenant and landlord laws, property codes, Federal Fair Housing Laws, as well as local city ordinances that can change annually.

Keeping up with all of these things in addition to collecting rent and handling maintenance requires a skilled and experienced team. Let RPM Insight step in and take out the stress and headaches of being a landlord!

I Can Expect a High Enough Rent to Pay for My Costs Because My Home is in Great Shape and in a Good Neighborhood.

 This is a Myth!

After redoing your home, checking to make sure the neighbors, and surrounding school districts are great you think that you can list your home and charge rent to cover all of your cost. Most property owners end up discovering that they have to lower their rental cost due to the fact that there are so many rental homes in their area. Real Property Management can help you with any questions you may have regarding this Myth!

Leasing Properties is Easy Work!

This is a Fact!

Unfortunately, when homeowners think about investing in real estate, they often think that it doesn’t involve much work. Most think it just involves buying a sign for the front lawn, and then out of nowhere tenants will show up. This is not the case; most homes will stay vacant for awhile especially if it isn’t the correct season or if it isn’t a decent price. An example of this is, if your home that you want to rent is in a college town you want to put it on the market in the spring so that perspective renters for the next school year can sign before going home. Real Property management can help you with all of the peak times to lease your home, and how to get it market ready.
