One of our motto’s here at Empire (we have a lot of them) is “it is easier to keep up than to catch up”. With this motto is mind we have decided early on when we just managing our own rentals that a more proactive approach to management is needed in order to succeed. In order to accomplish this you need fresh intelligence. If your wondering if we use the latest “Orwellian” spy equipment the answer is no. We just drive by the property every month take a picture, take some notes, and upload into our software. This proactive approach is the only way to run a management company. Looking at a rental property once or twice per year is mostly a rent collection company not property management. If you would like more info request our welcome packet.
