If you've owned income property for any length of time, you know that owning a rental can be financially rewarding. On the flip side, you've more than likely discovered managing property requires a large commitment of time and effort.
Typically, the do-it-yourself approach to managing property comes with a mindset of saving money. If you're handy with repairs and live close to your property, you may think devoting several hours per month to managing your property will save you money. Following are 10 ways Ackley FL Property Management can make owning investment properties much more desirable.
- Setting the right rental rates: While looking through the classifieds to see what other landlords are charging for similar properties is a fine way to ballpark your rent price. Ackley FL Property Management will conduct a thorough market analysis in order to set a rental price for your property, ensuring you achieve the perfect balance between maximizing monthly income and maintaining a low vacancy rate.
- Collecting and depositing monthly rent payments on time: If you've ever worked in a billing department, you know that securing payment from clients can be difficult, not to mention awkward. Ackley FL Property Management has efficient, tried-and-true systems in place to effectively collect rent and maintain on-time payments. You'll find this particularly important if you have a limited number of properties, and collecting payments on time is crucial to maintaining your cash flow.
- Marketing and advertising your property: Through years of experience, an Ackley FL property manager will know exactly where to market your property and how to craft compelling advertising materials---a significant advantage when it comes to filling your properties quickly and avoiding long vacancies.
- Finding the right tenants: Our well trained leasing agents are experts at qualifying to secure good tenants. They work closely with our application processing department to take care of all the important details; including checking a nationwide criminal background and security checks, running credit reports, verifying employment, and collecting previous landlord references.
- Managing tenants: In addition to finding good tenants, an Ackley property manager will facilitate all aspects of the tenant-landlord relationship. The Ackley Maintenance Coordinator will handle both routine and emergency maintenance. Our in-house Inspection Coordinator takes care of property inspections, and manage any situations where conflict resolution is required.
- Managing vendor relationships: Ackley FL Property Management has long time relationships with maintenance workers, tradesmen, contractors, suppliers, and vendors that it's almost impossible for an independent landlord to duplicate. Not only we get you the best work for the best price, we'll oversee any necessary maintenance projects.
- Ensuring that you're in compliance with housing regulations and property laws: There are a multitude of applicable Florida laws and regulations to abide by when renting and maintaining your rental property. These include local, state and federal regulations, as well as fair housing regulations (such as the ADA). Your Ackley property manager strives to help you avoid lawsuits by keeping your property up-to-date and in compliance with these regulations.
- Enabling you to invest in geographically distant properties: If you manage your own properties, you're pretty much limited to investment opportunities within a tight radius of your own home.

Lake Nona FL, which is referred to as the “medical city” is one of the best areas to be buying investment properties.
