If you wish to fill the vacancy in your#RentalProperty quickly, potential #tenants need to be able to find you! Most qualified tenants go through a #RealEstateAgent (REA). That means the REA is providing them listings from the MLS. If you are listed “For Rent by Owner”, your property will not be seen. If you want to be listed in MLS, you can list with #BevRobertsRentals via our “listing only” service. www.RobertsRentals.net
National Stress Awareness Day is a good day for landlords to remove the stress of leasing from their lives by contacting a property manager. Research shows stress has a negative effect on your body. It can raise blood pressure, increase the risk of heart attack and stroke, increase vulnerability to anxiety and depression, contribute to infertility, effect the immune system and hasten the aging process. If you’re #OVERLOADED, let #BevRobertsRentalshelp!
Recent Census Bureau data reveals that only 1 in 10 Americans moved between 2015 and 2016, marking the lowest level of renters or homeowners to relocate since the agency started keeping track of data in 1948, a trend exacerbated by the housing crash — which led Americans to be cautious and cling to their homes and rentals.
Yale Law School professor David Schleicher said homeownership subsidies, more land-use restrictions, the increased use of occupational licensing and municipal bankruptcies are the main culprits, Construction Dive reports. Schleicher said relocation subsidies targeting residents trapped in poor areas could help create more movers.
While the overall mover rate is low, more affordable regions of the country, like parts of the South, Midwest and Rust Belt, experienced increases in migration. According to Realtor.com, smaller markets, including Denver, Nashville and Orlando, are likely to see housing demand grow this year.
There’s an old saying, “Good, Fast, or Cheap – Pick Any Two”. The concept is simple. Choose two of the three options: good, fast or cheap. You can’t have all three. If you want something fast and cheap, it’s not going to be good. If you want something good and cheap, it’s not going to be fast. If you want something good and fast, it’s not going to be cheap. There are certainly exceptions to this rule, but for the most part we’ve found this to be fairly accurate.
It really doesn’t matter what line of business you’re in, customers all want their product done good, fast and cheap; however, it is impossible to create work in this manner. It just does not work that way.
Property management companies are not all created equal: They don’t cost the same, they don’t deliver the same quality of service, and they don’t provide their services at the same speed. So why do landlords choose to evaluate property management firms solely on how much they cost? When the success of your investment property, worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, is at stake, why choose a “cheap” property management option?
Too often, the “cheap” property management option comes with many gaps, when compared to a more reputable and marginally higher-priced firm — gaps related to cost, quality and promptness. You wouldn’t expect steak and lobster at a fast food restaurant, just as you shouldn’t expect first-class management from a “cheap” property manager.
What is the magic formula for a successful property management team? Like any other workplace, a property management office functions much more efficiently when employees function as a team with each member contributing their particular talent and expertise. The Bev Roberts Rentals family functions as a true team, because they share a love of leasing and property management. They believe that working together as a family gives them an advantage over their competitors and has been the key to their continued success. #HappyHolidays

Hi. I live in Colorado. We had to move quickly for a job in a different town. We posted the house for rent and were contacted by a family. My husband and I realized traveling 4 hours for maintenance would be too difficult. We advised interested party we decided not to rent. They said what if we do all maintenance? Ok. Done. Instead of a deposit they agreed to do a few things we couldn’t do before we moved. Anyway. Nothing repaired. Rent 4 to 15 days late. Water bill still in my name, almost disconnected. We drove by property to see deck destroyed and unsafe as well as a brand new swing set we couldn’t take. Trash everywhere, lawn dead…etc. posted a notice that we would be down in 1 weeks to.fix things. I have not been able to contact them since. Told me last time i talked to them that i was harassing them because i would ask when rent would be paid after they were late. Any advice? I just want them gone.
A: Oh boy, Big problema. You didn’t mention about the lease. I hope you didn’t give them a year or more. This is why, I don’t like the one year lease to start with new tenants. I prefer six months. Now if these people don’t pay, you’ll do a non-payment eviction. But if they pay, even late, your going to be stuck with them until the lease expires and then evict as holdovers. Just to top it off, you let them in without security. Another “no-no”. Another lesson learned.
