Property Management Headaches

Property Management in ArizonaAs I’ve alluded to in my last couple of posts, anyone who’s ever dealt with property management of their own rental property, especially long-distance, has experienced some of the stresses and strains associated with it.  Management of rental property doesn’t have to be and isn’t always stressful.  But, lack of knowledge or experience, can turn normal and occasional little “aches and pains” into bona fide migraines.  In addition, people with extensive knowledge and experience in the field, can still be taken by surprise and overwhelmed by some of the critical details of the process, if it is not their main focus.

I remember enjoying the satisfaction that came from being able to open the hood of my first car, (a 1952 Chevrolet Sport Coupe that my Dad bought for me when I was in high school) and being able to generally recognize what I saw inside, what it actually was, what function it performed, and in many cases, how to fix, repair or replace it if it went bad.  Over time I got fairly handy with the basics of such maintenance and repair.  But that didn’t make me a mechanic, and when, eventually, major maintenance or repair became needed, I took it to someone who had the experience and expertise to do what I would likely have roundly messed up on my own.

That principle applies in most areas of expertise, including rental property management.  So, If you, or someone you know, are noticing increase in frequency and intensity of what some see as the headaches of managing personal rental property, I offer below, for your review, an overview of what Far West Realty’s Property Management division offers.

Far West Realty’s Property Management division is a selective, high-quality service organization. Managing less than a hundred carefully chosen properties, we are a fairly small company, focused entirely on meeting the individual needs of each of our clients, and his or her well-maintained property.  Our motto is, “Our Clients Are Our Business” and it is our policy to keep our clients’ interests ahead of all others, even our own.  To qualified prospective clients, we offer the following:

5 out of 5 stars Dave Hamill at Far West Realty was my property manager on a single family house for several years. As an out-of-state owner, I relied on Dave for everything: tenant selection, lease negotiation, recovery when a former tenant didn't pay the last month's rent, cleaning, maintenance, marketing, managing repair work, etc. Dave and his team were always professional, courteous, competent, and just nice people. I wholeheartedly recommend them!

5 out of 5 stars I have been using Far West to manage my rental in Prescott Valley for approximately 7 years. I live out of the area know that things are being taken care of. I have complete faith in Dave and his team in the oversight of my property. They are thorough and very prompt in any given situation. I love the fact that I know that the house is being taken care of with TLC. You can't put a price on piece of mind and that is exactly how I benefit from using them. I would strongly recommend using Far West for your management needs. You will not be disappointed.
