Using the internet can make the job of being a landlord easier
Being a landlord can be easier that you think. Many people are holding on to their real estate these days, some by choice, because they are waiting for a stronger market, and some by necessity, those that simply cannot sell their homes. What this means is that there are many first time landlords out there, a job that can be a bit daunting, especially if you don’t live near your property.
If you are lucky being a landlord is easy and you get a monthly check with no real involvement. Many landlords have a more difficult time however, chasing down rent, making repairs and having to constantly oversee their tenants and their properties.
Here in Sevier County, more specifically Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge, being a landlord can be surprisingly easy. One of the many companies who manages the overnight rentals that dot the mountains in our area is Chalet Village Properties. Management companies like Chalet Village take care of everything from advertising, leasing, cleaning and general maintenance of the overnight rentals.
Another thing management companies do that makes our job selling real estate much easier is to document the rental incomes of the properties for sale. This documentation makes it much easier for a buyer to decide which rental property is the right choice for them.
