Common Property Management Mistakes

While it’s clear that rental property is a smart financial investment, all too often investors don’t realize the complexities of managing that investment. Here at Real Property Management we love to help rental property owners improve cash flow, efficiency and stability. But we hate to see these common avoidable mistakes.

  • Too many vacancy days and un-necessary leasing delays
  • Poor rental property selection
  • Inadequate preparation of a property that turns off prospective renters
  • Poor marketing strategy
  • Lax tenant qualification
  • Negative personal or confrontational tenant interactions
  • High tenant turnover
  • Inadequate rent collection processes
  • Costly regulatory violations
  • Neglecting inspections
  • Inefficient or overlooked maintenance
  • Cash flow problems
  • Failing to choose a property manager carefully

I signed up with Real Property Management 4 years ago, and couldn’t be more pleased. I had never rented out any property before, and was apprehensive… after all this is our home! An example of their care… last Sunday our renters had a water heater blowout that flooded the lower level. As we do not live near our property, I made one phone call to Real Property and they handled it from there.  Had a plumber change out the water heater, had the carpet experts on the site, and even contacted our insurance people.  All done within 24 hours. If you are thinking of leasing out your property, I don’t know how you could do any better than Real Property Management.
