Property Management Company Helps Owners Compete in ‘Sharing Economy’

Owning a rental property is different in the sharing economy. Rental property owners deal with more competition from people providing peer-to-peer accommodations. But hiring a property management company to manage a rental home often means a better return on your investment in Colorado. Most home owner associations discourage or outright forbid homeowners and investment property owners from using their homes as "hotels." If you tried to run an AirBnB or signed up for Home Away in the past, consider a refreshing change. Most hosts who can't handle the excessive stress of property management responsibilities, consider working with a property manager.

Maintaining a professional relationship

In the sharing economy, some people become hosts to allow guests to stay in their homes. But taking a casual approach to renters often creates problems for property owners. A property manager ensures a good professional relationship with tenants. In the sharing economy, the privacy line is often blurred. But a property manager follows proper laws.

Knowing the proper amount to charge

Another challenge for rental property owners is knowing the appropriate amount of money to charge for rent. The sharing economy, again, complicates the market rent in Colorado and other states. A property management company makes sure you don't lose tenants by raising rent. In most cases, a property owner who charges a monthly rent with a one-year lease have a better cash flow than AirBnB hosts. An experienced property manager researches the latest market rent to make sure you get the most money for what your home offers.

Other challenges easily overcome with a property manager include not knowing how to enforce the lease, collect money due to damages and handle difficult tenants who disturb the neighbors. Most hosts don't know how to properly screen people staying in their investment property. A background check and other screening tools often reduce tenant turnover and other difficulties.

By hiring a property manager to rent out your investment property instead of running an AirBnB, you no longer need to worry about keeping the home clean. Also, many guests expect a fully-stocked home with toiletries, food and coffee. At Housing Helpers Colorado, we help companies with corporate relocations as well as property owners interested in passive income. For more information on competing in the sharing economy, please contact us.

Property Management For Long Distance Owners

Property Management Helps with Long-Distance Ownership

Owning a rental property in your own hometown works for some people, but isn't necessary for savvy investors. Hiring a property management company to take care of the day-to-day landlord duties allows investors to own rental homes in places with high market rent. According to an article by The Washington Post, people who live in the Washington D.C. area often buy homes in other parts of the country where home prices are not overvalued. With the latest tax reform changes, more people want to own rental homes to deduct the expenses including property taxes. In many cases, landlords lower their taxable income by claiming any losses. Owning a rental property in a distant city often relieves investors of the nagging worries, especially when they hire a reliable and reputable property management company.

Investing for long-term

Experts point out investors often have to decide whether to buy a home for long-term appreciation or flip a house for a profit. With home-flipping profits down across the country and market rent up, it's smart to rely on cash flow from tenants. A survey from the National Association of Realtors shows investment property purchases are on an upward trend. Most mom-and-pop investors buy real estate to generate passive income. Hiring a property management company takes the burden off of the everyday investor.

Standing out from the competition

With 19 million single-family homes for rent in the U.S., it's critical to follow a proven strategy to attract tenants. Property managers give tenants peace of mind about maintenance issues. They also make sure the rental home has all the attractive features, desirable amenities that renters demand. Most single-family rental homes are owned by small time landlords. In fact, 79 percent of the rental homes in the U.S. belong to ordinary investors. That's does not mean the investors manage their own properties.

Whether you live in the same town as your investment property or live across the country, enjoy all the perks of a property management company. The money spent on a property manager is tax deductible. Even though 70 percent of people invest in rental properties within an hour of their main residence, people move or experience life changes that prevent them from overseeing their rental home. When buying remotely, use the neighborhood rating index, watch 3-D tours and ask for a home inspection.
