If you own rental properties in the city, then the best thing to do is opt for professional property management Michigan. Being a landlord is a full time job. It also involves many hassles and headaches; we do not mean to scare you but if you are new to this job, do consider the following things:


  1. If you have multiple properties, is it possible for you to drive down to each of them, every single time you are faced with a crisis?

  2. If you are left with vacant rental units, do you know how to market them so that they reach a wider audience?

  3. Once your tenant applications start to come in, do you know how to screen them for background, credit and employment checks?

  4. Now, consider a situation where in a tenant refuses to pay or leaves and abandons without paying the rent. In such a case, do you know how to start the evictions process?

  5. If you have multiple properties, or even a single rental property, the upkeep and maintenance is an important aspect that must not be overlooked. Do you have a team of dedicated professionals like roofers, landscapers, electricians and plumbers to handle repairs quickly and efficiently?


These are just a few issues that are likely to occur with DIY property management. It is highly recommended that you opt for a professional who can help you ease this burden.
