Are you trying to decide whether you should sell your property or rent it out?We work with a lot of investors who are thinking about relocating out of the San Jose area, and they aren’t sure what they should do with their homes. There are a few things to consider before you come to a final decision.
Quickly renting out your investment property is essential to moving your cash flow and increasing your ROI. If you’re having trouble finding a resident who is interested in your home, it may be due to one of three reasons.
Habitability concerns are huge for investors and landlords in Roseville. Even before we get into the legal issues surrounding habitability, you need to understand that properly maintaining your home is good for protecting the condition of your investment. If you leave even small repairs for later, you can end up with much larger problems that are more expensive and more complex.
As professional property managers in San Jose, we see and handle several different types of routine and emergency maintenance. We also do everything we can to implement preventative maintenance plans so we can protect the condition of the investments we’re managing.
After your residents have vacated your rental property, it’s time for you to conduct a move-out inspection. This will be similar to your move-in inspection, and will give you the opportunity to compare the condition at move-out to the condition at move-in. You have hopefully had good residents who took care of the home, and this process will be swift and uncomplicated.
Self-managing landlords often think they’re saving money by taking care of their own rental property. They think because they’re not paying a management fee, they are increasing their ROI. However, there are many mistakes that landlords can easily make, and those mistakes can be expensive. In fact, they often cost more than a management fee.
To find great residents, you need to provide a well-maintained home that’s priced competitively. Another thing that might help you attract the best residents is professional property management. Good residents prefer to work with property managers over individual landlords. If you’re wondering why that is, we have some answers.
Maintaining a rental property falls to both landlords and residents. As a property investor, you’re required to provide a safe and habitable home. As residents, renters are required to help you keep that property clean and well-maintained. Make sure everyone understands their responsibilities before the lease is signed and the keys handed over.
