Learn how to manage your rental 

Many property owners don’t want to hire a property management company to save a few dollars, but self-management comes with its own set of challenges. Property management requires a lot of time and energy. In order to decide what option is the best, you must be aware of and understand the duties you will be taking on if you decide to self-manage.  Here are some of the landlord duties that you will have to embrace: 


Handling maintenance can be a huge headache. You will need to repair maintenance issues and emergencies as well as respond to resident complaints. When maintenance is not done well it can become a real problem putting your investment at risk. Research has shown that not responding to maintenance reports is one of the main reasons why residents do not renew their leases. If you want a long-term resident, you will need to handle maintenance like a pro. As a landlord you are also responsible for protecting the safety of their residents. You need to make sure the property complies with all local building and safety codes. 

Here are some building and safety codes (these can differ depending on the state or city) :

    Lead-Based Paint for Properties Built Before 1978.

  •     Toxic Mold
  •     Asbestos
  •     Maximum Number of People Per Unit
  •     Smoke Detectors
  •     Carbon Monoxide Detectors
  •     Safety Guards on Windows
  •     Plumbing
  •     Electrical Wiring


When your properties are vacant, you are losing money. Finding good residents is one of the most common challenges that landlords face. Finding your next resident involves more than just putting an ad online or a sign outside your property. You will need to make property visits, talk to prospective residents, do property showings and collect rental applications. You will also need to screen residents. Resident screening is a vital part of the leasing process. A thorough resident screening is one of the best tools you will have to protect your investment.

Market Your Rental Property 

The way your property is marketed will have a huge impact on how fast it is rented and a critical factor in reducing a vacancy period. If you want to rent your properties faster you will need a good marketing plan, you want to make sure that your property stands out and attracts the most residents possible.

Rent Collection

People usually think rent collection is easy. Unfortunately, this is not the case. You will need to be handling late payments, partial payments, and other financial issues that may arise with residents. You will also need to communicate with your resident over such issues.
