Jeremy Goldschmidt reveals DIY property management insights for investors.
Somewhere between 400,000 and 660,000 Aussie property investor landlords manage their own properties. This is great while everything is fine, until suddenly, it’s not.
Because it is not a matter of if you’re going to have problems with your investment properties, it’s a matter of when, how big and how often.
There’s a good reason why over half of first time investors sell their property within the first five years, and a lot of this has to do with the ongoing, time consuming and life sucking headache and hassles of managing the property.
And when it comes to property management, often you just don’t know what you don’t know – and ignorance is certainly not bliss – in fact it is downright dangerous!
With residential tenancies legislation in each and every state differing, constantly changing and increasingly stacked in the favour of the rights of the tenants, how can you control the property, protect yourself and minimise the risks without giving yourself a second job?
Many, like myself, have traditionally responded by deferring to professional property managers, but this can be hit and miss, so what if there’s a way you can still do it all yourself, providing you have the time, the knowledge and the inclination?
This is where the RentBetter platform now comes to your rescue, and to explore this and dive into the world of DIY property management, we’re joined by the Founder & CEO of RentBetter Jeremy Goldschmidt.
