Have you been working harder than ever before to manage your Houston Texas Rental Property and in spite of the demand for rentals, you still find yourself behind financially every month?
If so, this is a sign that you may have lost control of your Houston Texas Rental, but the good news is that you can turn things around financially by following these simple tips.
Create an Operating Budget and Commit To It
Your rental income, especially if you own a multi-family rental property, should always cover your expenses and leave you with profit at the end of the month.
The best way to stay on track financially is to create an operating budget and then stick with that budget each month.
When creating an operating budget you should also be prepared for payments like landlord insurance and property taxes so you’re never left unprepared when it comes to your ability to pay those bills on time when they are due.
Work On Your Leasing Strategy
Create a lease which has stronger language when it comes to late payments just so tenants know that they will receive an eviction notice and not be allowed to “slide” if they miss making their rent payments on time.
You should also improve your tenant screening process and take the time to choose the right tenants instead of “warm bodies” who can pay the rent each month.
Improve Your Marketing Strategy
Instead of hanging fliers in your local laundry mat, or posting ads on Craigslist, you should create a new marketing strategy which includes options like paid ads on websites like Zillow and local classified ad sites which are sure to be read by prospective tenants.
