Should you let someone who doesn’t own a rental property manage for you?
It’s unfortunate but it happens all the time … rental property owners suffer at the hands of inexperienced property managers. It can be COSTLY and totally FRUSTRATING when you have trusted management of your rental to a “professional” who turns out to be not so much so.
There is no replacement for FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE in any field, especially in the world of property management. A manager who has no hands-on personal experience with owning a rental is unable to fully understand a property owner’s worries and concerns. Classes and seminars can teach the basics of property management but little about how to handle difficult tenants, get repairs done inexpensively or how to get a non-paying tenant out without going to court. Experience teaches these things.
What would it feel like if someone trashed your rental property? A manager who has owned rentals for any length of time will unfortunately know exactly what it feels like (TERRIBLE!) and so will work overtime to make sure that it doesn’t happen to you!
The staff at Red Roof Rentals has owned rental properties in Pierce County for many years, so we know FIRST HAND the way it should be done. When you considering someone to manage their properties, ask the property manager the most question of all:
“HOW MANY RENTAL PROPERTIES DO YOU OWN YOURSELF?”
