So let’s say I purchased this property with the inheritance from a relative’s unfortunate passing. I won’t get into details about my family’s disappointment, resignation or anger. I just won’t.
Besides, it’s not the worst looking property ever. It’s on decent land with the option to expand. The interior is spacious and lightly decorated but future furnishing is a given. Depending on which room you occupy, the window provides an intriguing view of the surrounding area. It’s a nice place
But I know it can be much better. The yards are unkempt, the paint job on the outside is particularly garish and I’m a little too busy to clean the interior when it becomes dusty or dirt-ridden from heavy use. I know I can use the property as casual cash by renting it to the occasional traveller so that’s no problem. The problem comes with the maintenance.
Huh. Maybe that’s why my family got irritated. Oh well
That’s when I discover that it’s possible to seek a property manager. I’ve read about those guys, they’re like caretakers for houses and such. They’d be perfect. Of course, I’d have to research services which offer property managers and decide what prices and duties would be available.
For example, I’m not much of a people person. I may want to use my property as a renting home but that doesn’t mean I know what kinds of tenants I’ll want to keep. Some people could be opportunities, some could be vandals, and some could be criminals. I have no way of reviewing every application and I have no interest in doing so. Therefore, hiring a property manager could help weed out the nasty people and I can rest easier knowing my property will be in safe hands as far as tenants are concerned.
In fact, they might as well manage the property for me. I mean, I don’t have much business nous. I’m just some guy who had too much money and spent it. That makes me an idiot but not a business owner. Therefore, hiring a business manager ensures that it will at least get turned into something useful for the community. Advertising, rent management, budgets and essential costs should be par for the course in terms of his duties. It was either that or let it fall apart after years of non-use.
As I mentioned before, the gardens would most likely be a complete mess. I’m also not much of a green thumb but a presentable yard helps support an attractive estate. I know that property managers Alexandria have the potential to assist with garden maintenance as well as interior maintenance. I already know of possible layouts for flora that could decorate both the front and the back of the property as well
My family thought I was crazy. As long as I hire the right property manager to do the job right by me, I know I’ll prove them wrong.
