Tenant Management

You’ll want to keep good tenants happy and satisfied so that they stay. When you have high tenant turnover, it creates more work on your end and can cost you money. This means attending to their maintenance needs promptly, being adept at handling complaints and always adding value first. Additionally, being a good landlord can help to attract tenants and can lead to increased rental income.
