When we became accidental landlords in 2011, we had no idea what we were doing. We stumbled through pricing. We had no idea how or where to market our property. We had no application criteria. We had ZERO idea of what we were getting into.
What happened was our unit was vacant far longer than we could afford. We took the first person who applied and had a lot of stumbles along the way.
The unit was damaged. When she’d call about repairs, we were on high-alert because we didn’t have a process in place. She would drop her checks off at our house (usually late).
We had no strategy in 2011.
We made mistakes, but we learned from them.
In 2013, we decided to make a buy and hold real estate investment. We bought a 3-flat, lived in one unit, and rented out the others. By this time, we knew what we were doing.
You can do this too.
In our 3-part class series, you will develop these strategies and automate your own rental property procedures.
In Class One - Landlording: Simplified, you will develop your systems and procedures for building a team, negotiating pricing with your team, choosing a payment system, determining your property policies, and writing your lease.
In Class Two - Property Marketing: Simplified, you will learn how to write your property ad, how to take great property pictures, how to set-up automated scheduling of showings, develop an applicant criteria, learn how to accurately price your unit, and learn how to properly background check.
In Class Three - Tenant Onboarding: Simplified, you will learn how to familiarize new tenants with your property, procedures, and lease. This class is essential for stress-free landlording. Your tenants will be more educated about the rules and regulations of your unit, they will know how to automate their payments, and they will know how to correctly contact about repair needs. Educating tenants reduces that new tenant adjustment period and the chances of getting sued over a misunderstanding.
Are you ready to be a stress free landlord?
