Landlords have a lot on their plates right now, with issues ranging from everyday concerns to questions about a rapidly changing marketplace. Changing legislation presents the potential for nationwide rent controls. Even without new problems, there are always maintenance concerns, inspections, and other issues to fill up your days (and spill over into your nights)!
In the current environment, many landlords are finding themselves being forced to take cost-cutting measures. In the US, an astounding 73% of landlords opt to handle everything themselves rather than using property managers. In the UK, there’s a similar trend. As landlords feel the pinch of increasing taxes and higher mortgage costs, 64% of those surveyed mentioned that they’d consider moving to online letting agents to locate their next tenant, rather than paying for a full-time property manager.
If you’re among those heading out into the rental world on your own, you’ll want to make organization a top priority. Yocale can help you navigate appointments and so much more. Give these features a try and regain your personal time.
