Any number of Ft. Myers property owners remains on the sidelines even as demand for rentals continues to increase. They hesitate to convert their properties into income-producers — even those that are eminently rentable — because they are already fully occupied with career and family obligations. They simply cannot devote the time and attention required.
If you count yourself in that group, perhaps it’s time to consider the possibility from another angle: hiring a Ft. Myers property management company. Not only do they make establishing a rental easier, they also help ensure that your asset is protected — a must for landlords who don’t live in Ft. Myers.
Even if you own a residence in one of our more desirable neighborhoods, it’s still necessary to start with a competitive read on how much rent it will fetch. That’s where a Ft. Myers property management company’s assessment, based on current market values in the area, can remove any worry about under- or over-charging (and unnecessary vacancies).
The right property management entity will find renters, screen them, place the best tenants in your property, and ensure that it is maintained while they are in residence. That’s a lot of work for anyone with a full-time career and/or a household to run, and why the relatively small fee that a Ft. Myers property management company will charge is probably well worth the cost.
An intangible yet extremely important service property management firms render comes in the sound advice they are able to offer. Their opinion on which repairs are needed and which can wait, what future expenses you should typically plan for, how best to promote your property, etc., can be invaluable. Removing the need for guesswork from the landlord’s planning perspective can mean a lot fewer sleepless nights — and often a more satisfactory bottom line.
Today’s rental properties stand as terrific investment options. They comprise opportunities that even a busy professional can take advantage of — particularly when a Ft. Myers property management firm is there to backstop your return on investment. If you are thinking of buying or selling an investment property in town, call me for a free market assessment.
