You may notice a Rently link on some of our property listings (see below). In short, Rently is a tool we use that allows potential tenants to view properties on their own time. With this tool you can simply register online, sign up for a time to view the property, obtain the access code for that day and time, and send feedback after you check out the home.
How hard is it really to manage your own rental property? Find a nice renter who will take care of the place as if it were their own and collect a rent check every month. Maybe send someone over to do yard work every once in a while. While it sounds easy enough, the perfect tenant/owner relationship does not come around very often.
Last month we had the pleasure of hosting our vendors for lunch as a small way to say thank you! It takes a village to manage and care for all our rental properties and we would not be able to do it without them. We have curated our list of vendors over the last 35+ years so we are confident that we have the best in Portland working on your home.
Building a great owner-tenant relationship can be very tricky. At the end of the day the owner wants to make money off their investment property, and the tenant wants a great place to live for as little rent or hassle as possible. The best way to ensure that everyone gets what they want is to set realistic expectations for both parties at the beginning and continue to communicate throughout the process.
