Many people are familiar with property managers – they collect your rent every month. However, there is much more to the role of a property manager than you might be familiar with, including their qualifications, requirements, and day-to-day property manager responsibilities. To understand how to become a property manager, first, you must understand the role of a property manager.
Should Your Real Estate Agent be Your Property Manager?
As a licensed Real Estate Broker in the State of California focusing on Property Management, I have heard many horror stories from residential property owners who decided to have a residential real estate agent perform the services of a property manager.
Almost everyone has a landlord horror story, right? Maybe they kicked you out for “babysitting your friend’s cat,” or they didn’t speak English very well, or perhaps they unjustly took your entire security deposit. Well, no matter the tale, remember that the landlords have them too: tenants who can’t pay, residents with noise complaints, and people who actually don’t deserve their security deposits back.
Moving into your own space when you’re young is a definite goal that tends to be a defining factor of adulthood. Many people think that renting a home is reserved for young working adults, typically in their mid to late twenties and some families, while buying is even more exclusive, typically reserved for families and financially established individuals.
Tiny homes are all the rage right now and come in a variety unique shapes and miniature sizes.

What is Airbnb?
Airbnb is a room-letting website that allows homeowners to post their accommodations for a price for the use of travelers and tourism. For instance, you may have a bedroom free in your house and would like to rent it out but not to long-time guests. By placing the vacancy on Airbnb you could possibly have short time renters on vacation coming to stay at your house for your listed fee from anywhere as short as a day to a week or two.
California boasts some of the most valuable and profitable real-estate in the country. If you’re looking to invest in some rental property, you would do well to conduct some research into California's ever-growing and diversifying rental economy. No matter what you’re looking for in terms of property, the golden state has something worthwhile to offer.
A true home is an important commodity in today’s world. Despite any hardship or trouble we encounter, it’s nice to know that there is a warm bed waiting for us, whether that location is in a house or in a rental property.
It’s that magical time of year again! No, it’s not Christmas this time, what I meant to say is that it’s that time of year when you drive home, look at your house and nitpick all the things you want spruced up and modernized. A majority of us love our home, but all of us have that one thing we want to change. It could be the crown molding or maybe the entryway, but regardless, we all want something fixed.
We all love getting festive during the winter holiday season. It warms our hearts to see tenants decorating their patios and balconies for Christmas, getting more and more competitive each year to win the best decoration contest and months of bragging rights. Many of us, perhaps even most of us, look forward to this season year round.
