Here I am, standing in my warm and cozy home today while it’s cold and unpleasant outside. My dogs are relaxed and my daughter’s watching a movie, and I came into the kitchen to tell you a story about this house. My name is Christopher Barrow, and I am the broker at Foundation Homes.
We strongly recommend that you perform annual inspections at your occupied rental property, and there are a few important reasons that it’s a good idea.
Part of the professional property management services we offer at Foundation Homes International is turnover service. It’s our job to prepare the property between tenants. Often, owners and landlords will ask us what the property has to look like before a tenant moves in. They want to know how clean it should be and whether there should be new paint.
Walk-through inspections are an important part of renting out an investment home, and you should make a point of doing them consistently. As a property owner, you turn over your sparkling clean, perfectly maintained property that doesn’t have any issues or problems to the tenant who happens to be moving in. There are things you need to do to protect yourself and to make sure you get the property back in the same condition that it was delivered to your tenant.
When it comes to finding the best investment property in Marin County, there is no one answer. But, if you’re looking to buy an investment property, there are a few specific things that you need to consider.
