Do you have what it takes to manage rental property? If you are actively looking to purchase a piece of income property, or if you have suddenly become the owner of real estate, find out what you need to know about the most important aspect of rental housing management: keeping the unit occupied with paying tenants who don’t destroy it or terrorize the neighbors! Learn how to prepare a property for rent, set rents and security deposits, develop a cost-effective marketing campaign, and show your rental unit to prospective tenants. Find out about techniques for good tenant selection, how to meet minimum standards required for a property to be habitable, proper insurance, how to work with contractors for maintenance, and how to deal with tenants who overstay (and don’t pay). Please note: This class does not cover management of commercial properties. This class DOES NOT cover management of commercial real estate.
