Self-Management VS. Property Management – Which Option Is Better?

System - Thursday, July 23, 2020

Are you planning on investing in an Atlanta Rental Property but you’re trying to decide if you should focus on managing it yourself (self-management), or hire a property management company to manage that rental for you?

In this article, we will offer you several reasons why self-management isn’t always everything that some owners claim that it is, and the reasons why you should seriously consider hiring a property manager to professionally manage your rental property for you.

Self-Management – Why It’s Not All That It’s Cracked Up To Be

Some owners get started with owning rental properties thinking that they can easily self-manage their Atlanta rental properties. The reality is that DIY property management doesn’t always work out like they thought it would.

When you self-manage your rental properties, you have to be the go-to guy (or gal) for everything including rent collection, maintenance, customer service, accounting, and more!

Yes, you can learn a lot about owning rental properties when you self-manage them but, the reality is that it’s possible to become overworked and underpaid fast during the process of attempting to self-manage investment properties.

Property Management – A Landlords New “Best Friend”

Hiring a property manager is one of the smartest decisions that you will ever make because when you hire a property manager, they will take care of all the management responsibilities related to your investment property.

From rent collection to maintenance, your property manager will save you a lot of time and make your life easier. As a result, you can enjoy passive income from your property and grow your portfolio of investment properties.
