    Great tips – thanks for sharing. I really like the idea of creating a property manual. While perhaps initially time-consuming, it could save the property owners, property management team, and the tenants a lot of time and frustration down the line by having everything compiled into one thorough document.

    Further, I agree that hiring a property management group is often one of the best things an investment owner can do. With so many rules and regulations to abide by, it’s difficult for many owners to know all of the details involved in owning and managing a property — not to mention the headaches that could come along with tough tenants.
