As seen in news media stories nearly every day, more and more properties for sale are not selling due to an oversaturated market and rising interest rates. Tens of thousands of homeowners have turned to renting out their properties. It is essential that they quickly learn how to market to ideal renters, communicate in such a way to collect timely rent, retain residents long-term, and get them to properly maintain the premises (doing all this without losing everything, including their sanity).
In this fully updated and revised edition of the bestselling The Landlord's Kit, Jeffrey Taylor, "Mr. Landlord," the nation's leading authority for landlords and property managers, provides every form or checklist a landlord would ever need to communicate with tenants to be successful. From the rental advertisement and initial interaction/screening to leasing, collecting rents, maintenance, lease violations, retention, and property turnover, effective landlord-tenant communications can mean the difference between making big profits or losing thousands of dollars when renting residential properties.
