One thing we have learnt through the pandemic is that life can change quickly, the world can turn on its head in a blink of an eye. No one has escaped the effects of the pandemic, it has certainly left its mark on all of us but there are other “pandemics” that are causing issues for a lot of people that can have just as big an impact on our live, the housing crisis is one such issue. Because of the lack of adequate housing, the cost of living rises and the high inflation rates we are seeing, it is making it next to impossible for a lot of people to be able to buy a house for themselves. As the option to join the property ladder being taken away from them it means that there are a lot of people that are having to turn to the rental market instead. With this we are seeing more and more rental properties hitting the market, while this is good it has shown that there is a need for companies to manage these properties, and if you live in California, corona property management companies are there that are helping to fill these needs.
If you are thinking of buying properties with the view to renting them out, then it would be worth looking into a company that can manage them for you. How much they help is basically your call, they could take care of everything or just the basics, it is up to you. For example, when you buy a property you could let them take care of everything from that point on, they would look after the maintenance, repairs and safety aspects, they would look after the process of searching for tenants and even take care of the vetting side, they can look after the contacts and even ensure that the property is checked regularly to ensure it is well looked after. It could be that you are happy to look after most of these yourself, but you would struggle with one or two of these, but that is what is great about this kind of service, you can pick and choose what suits your needs. They are there to take the pressure off you, to support you in whatever area you need.
So if you are thinking of or are currently renting out property it would be worth your while to look into a company that can assist you and make your rental portfolio easier to manage.
