Palm Bay Landlords: Do You Really Want to Know Your Residents?

If 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 depends 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 employing a management team can bring.

This allows you to simply sit back, relax and reap the benefits of investing in rental property. 

Maintain Distance 

As a landlord, it’s easy to form relationships with your residents. Appliances need fixing, the property needs tending, you could be seeing a resident every month or so depending on the situation. When you are constantly having to visit someone renting your property, a friendship could potentially form. Suddenly you realize your resident has your personal phone number and maybe even knows where you live. 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 not wanting to be the “bad guy” when something goes wrong, the tenant is short on rent, etc. You end up in a situation you never wanted to be in just from being an attentive landlord.

Being a landlord, you could easily develop a personal relationship with your residents. You need to fix appliances, tend to the property and so depending on the situation, you could be seeing a resident every month or so. When you are always having to see someone who is renting your property, a personal relationship, even a friendship could potentially form. Soon, you realize, your resident has your personal phone number and knows your home address. Nothing wrong with that until your resident becomes bitter over an “unresolved” issue.

How We Can Help  

Your residents could also attempt to exploit you with your personal information. By having a property management team, you can stay away from these issues totally.

Avoid Conflict of Interest

Another reason you may want to consider looking to property management services for your investment rental property is if you are invested in multiple businesses. Being in politics, owning a restaurant, or any kind of public career can cause conflict with current or potential residents. 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 that protection comes in handy when a resident has to be evicted from a property and wants to take it out on the owner, especially if you run another business.
