Glendale Landlords: Do You Really Want to Know Your Residents?

A Potential Resident Sitting at a Desk with a Real Property Management East San Gabriel Valley ManagerIf you are a landlord, then you are aware that there is a fine line that you do not want to cross regarding your relationship with your residents. The security of your business and your private and professional life depend on landlord anonymity at times. However, with the position of a landlord being heavily involved in the daily management and success of your property, you may want to consider the benefits of employing a management team can bring.

By employing the services Real Property Management East San Gabriel Valley, we can handle the potentially messy parts of property management. This allows you to simply sit back, relax and reap the benefits of investing in rental property.

Maintain Distance

As a landlord, it can feel natural to begin forming friendships with your residents. You will visit the property often to maintain and repair appliances, tend to management tasks and generally be available to said residents. However, you may find yourself in a situation where your residents have your personal number and perhaps knows where you live. This can cross a professional line and is not a smart idea if you wish to keep your personal life protected.

Having that kind of information can be harmless until a resident becomes bitter over an issue with the property. The risk in this is having too close of a relationship with your tenant and then not wanting to be the “bad guy” if something goes wrong or when the resident is short on rent, etc. You end up in a situation you never wanted to be in just from being an attentive landlord.

 How We Can Help

Your resident may also try and take advantage of you. By having a property manager, you completely avoid these issues. We handle everything from background checks to broken rules and overdue rent. We study local and federal laws, so you don’t have to, and we implement them with your residents to make sure there is always a clear understanding of the relationship we have, which is strictly professional. This removes you from the conflict completely by being anonymous.

Avoid Conflict of Interest

Perhaps being a landlord is not the only type of business you are in. Being in politics, owning a restaurant, or any kind of public career can cause conflict with residents trying to rent from you. If they recognize your name from elsewhere then they may already have a preconceived notion of the type of person you are. Whether it is good, or misinterpreted, having a property management team behind you eliminates the risk entirely, and protects your identity.

Having a property management teams not only protects your property but also your reputation. A disgruntled resident may leave a negative review for your small business when they were unhappy with something regarding their rental property. Why risk this damage when we can take care of it for you.

There are no regrets in keeping your business anonymous and secure. To learn more about the services Real Property Management East San Gabriel Valley offers, contact us online or call us at 626-600-2884 today.
