Property Manager vs. Landlord
Owning an income property is a big deal. Not only is it a financial responsibility, but, when you rent your Northwest Florida home, you are responsible for someone’s home. And, being a landlord is tricky business.
When you are a landlord you are responsible for the same things we are as property managers. You need to establish a rent value, advertise for a tenant, screen them, and get them moved in. Then the real fun begins; late night calls, maintenance, rent collection and more. The difference between a landlord and property manager?
