INCOME PROPERTY MANAGEMENT
Making money while you sleep – definitely music to ears, isn’t it?
When it comes to income, apart from the stereotypical suggestion of “getting a part-time job”, the term “passive” also exists on a sliding scale.
While there are lots of passive income ideas or ways to make money with a little investment, income property is one option to consider if you want to generate a profit smoothly.
WHAT IS INCOME PROPERTY
An income property is a type of real estate that is purchased or developed primarily with a goal of generating revenues through rental payments or leasing out to others, with a secondary target of price appreciation. It may be residential or commercial and can be almost any size—as small as a single family home or condo/apartment unit, to larger than multi-building office complexes.
Income property is one of the most preferred passive income investments for many. It sure can offer a stream of profit and unending money-making (as long as you own the property), plus give you financial freedom while doing what you love the most. However, there are plenty of day-to-day tasks that need to be performed to make sure the rental property investment is performing well.
Furthermore, if you want to invest in rental properties, we can help you get started.
Some of those tasks include, but aren’t limited to:
- Tenant Screening
- Rent Collection
- Advertising and Marketing your property listing.
- Property compliance for both local and national standards
- Property Maintenance
- Lease agreements and safety deposits collection etc.
When everything is laid out on a plate, it’s normal to have the logical question of “should I manage my own rental property?” Or “ Do I have time to look after the tenants?”. If you’re wondering how successful property owners were able to handle their rental property investments, hire property managers.
Income property management requires a thorough knowledge of the surrounding property market to get the upper hand in the rental competition. Regardless of the type or size of the investment, income property management is a lot of work, reason why some income property owners turn to professional management companies to oversee their properties and handle day to day responsibilities like; setting a competitive price, tenant first-hand interactions, constant upkeep of both the physical property and the administrative and financial information, etc.
By doing such, owners get to retain financial benefits of the investment property without compromising any of their time, or walking the hassle of day to day property visits or rent collection.
WHY SHOULD I HIRE PROPERTY MANAGERS?
- They’re on a bigger team.
Property Managers mostly work for a Property Management Company, and when you sign up in a circle, you get to access their market – easier for you to find your next Tenant.
2. They extend your hours.
Managing a property can be pretty exhausting, and if you get to manage your own property (with lack of knowledge about it), you’ll definitely cut the hours you were supposed to have for your long vacay, or learning a new hobby etc.
3. They walk over the hassle.
Preparing documents for compliance or agreements can be easy for some, but not for most. There are several documents a property manager can handle for you, starting with preparing records from rent collection or financial statements.
4. The Cost and The Process.
Property Managers can be both affordable and negotiable, depending if you’d like to have the full service or not. If you agree with the terms, you’ll go with a smoother process in your rental property journey as they’re in charge of everything that’s related with your property.
REAL ESTATE AS INVESTMENT OPTION
Income property management is a common occurrence with investment real estate. While there are endless ways to invest your money, real estate is the best long-term investment option – says 2019 Gallup poll. If you have cash lying around and want to put your money to work, time to consider income property.
