PORTLAND, Ore. – Are you still listing your properties for rent in the Portland houses for rent by owner section of craigslist, or your favorite online publication? If so, if so, here are 7 reasons to stop DIY property management and outsource the management of your rental properties with our professional property management company.
#1 – We Will Help You Set the Correct Rent for Your Rental Property
Although it may be easy for you to look through the portland houses for rent by owner section of websites like craigslist to see what comparable homes are renting for in Portland, this isn’t always the best way to determine the best rental price for your property.
Our property management team will complete a thorough market study based on real data to determine what the best price your Portland Oregon rental property should be rented for each month.
#2 – Our Company Will Collect and Deposit Your Rent Payments On time
Another HUGE benefit of working with a professional property management company instead of renting your home yourself on websites that list portland houses for rent by owner, is that we will always collect rent and deposit your monthly rent payments on time each month.
You will no longer have to worry about dealing with tenants who don’t pay their rent on time, or the age old excuse of “the check is in the mail” because our billing department has an efficient system in place that makes collecting rent a breeze and you will be able to enjoy consistent cash flow from your rental property that you can count on.
#3 – When It Comes Time to Marketing We Will Advertise Your Property for You
One of the most common things that people who list their portland houses for rent by owner online hate doing is marketing or advertising their properties. The reason why most owners hate this part of owning rental properties is because they don’t know where to market their rental properties online while other owners just don’t like having to sell people on the benefits of living in their rental properties.
Thankfully, with our Portland Oregon Property Management team, you can also count on us to market your rental properties for you and do things like creating a compelling listing, take pictures, shoot awesome video and ultimately screen the best tenants who would be a perfect fit to live in your rental property.
#4 – Our Team Will Screen the Right Tenants
Yes, we know that listing your house on a portland houses for rent by owner site is easy but will this aspect of DIY property management help you to reach the right tenants? The answer is probably not. With our property management team you can count on us screening the right tenants and take care of all the seemingly mundane, but important, tasks of property management like criminal background checks, running credit reports, employment verification, security checks and reviewing references from a tenant’s previous landlords.
#5 – Excellent Tenant Management

Thankfully with our property management team, you can count on us to handle all of the day-to-day tasks of tenant management so you can essentially reclaim your life and enjoy hands-off, passive, rental income once again.
#6 – Managing All Vendor Relationships
