Being A Landlord Can Be Hard

Appartment 1

If you’re stuck with a home you don’t want, the idea of renting it out has probably crossed your mind. But being a landlord isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Finding a tenant is a full-time job …

There’s a lot more to filling a vacancy than placing a few ads in the paper and online. Professionally-minded tenants won’t call unless you have the marketing prowess to make your property seem like the best. That means staging, professional photos and ample exposure – all of which cost money and take time.

But that aside, weeding through applicants is no small feat. Background checks and interviews are time-consuming, costly, and stressful. And no matter how nice a potential applicant seems or how good he/she looks on paper, you can never take anything at face value – people lie about employment, past rental history, credit ratings, and just about anything else in order to secure a home.

And it’s not a cake walk after …

The lease will make or break your experience as a landlord. And when you fall into the role, it’s likely you’ll overlook a ton of loopholes. To avoid this, you’ll need to hire an attorney to write the lease for you or review the one you come up with. As you know, attorneys aren’t cheap.

In the end, no matter how well you screen tenants or how iron-clad your lease is, bad tenants slip through. From dramatic late night phone calls about a clogged toilet to chasing down rent payments, routine maintenance (there’s more than you think) to fixing unexpected damage, you’ll often spend more time managing your property than you do anything else.

Throw the possibility of an eviction into the mix (millions of people are evicted across the country every year), a months-long and costly process, and it becomes clear that being a landlord is not all sunshine and roses.

The worst thing a landlord can do with an unwanted property is to let it just sit. The owner will still end up having to pay taxes and utilities while the condition deteriorates, lowering the value of the property. Left alone, an extra property is loosing money every day. We can help homeowners looking to move on from an extra property.
