Local vs. National Firms: How Local Does It Better

Bigger isn’t necessarily better when it comes to property management service companies. Likely, some of you have already come to this conclusion on your own after witnessing and experiencing firsthand the best (and worst) of both worlds.

In the current era, there are many national discount firms that claim to offer the same level of service at a reduced rate. We all know you get what you pay for.

Should I Sell or Lease My Home?

Deciding whether to sell your home or lease it out involves the balancing and consideration of multiple priorities! This includes what your potential return on investment might be, as well as weighing your current financial and personal needs at this moment.

In this fantastic seller’s market, selling can obviously be quite the lucrative and attractive option. But of course, you still need to look at what you owe on the home, versus what your profit or loss will be to sell it and then what kind of income you could be looking to generate by leasing it out.

Where are you in life right now? Are you close to retirement? Does this make financial sense to start building an investment portfolio of rental homes? There’s a reason real estate is a good investment! Or, what about your next move? Are you planning to relocate soon – and then potentially move back in? If that’s the case, leasing could be the way to go.

It’s Expense Reconciliation Time!

Unless your tenants are on a gross lease, it’s time for annual reconciliations. Depending on how the lease is structured, you may have tenant recoveries for taxes, insurance, CAM and percentage rent. Most leases have a set date that the landlord is required to notify the tenant of increases, decreases and 2022 estimates. Failure to provide tenants with timely notices can impair a landlord’s ability to recover those monies.

NNN Charges: Common Pitfalls to Avoid

NNN Charges are devised with the intent to pass on the maintenance of common areas, management, taxes, and insurance to commercial property’s tenants based on their proportionate share. A large part of negotiating a commercial lease can be negotiating what common area charges (CAM charges) are included and if the tenant has a cap on charges. Managing the landlord’s risk and tenant’s pass throughs plays a key role in negotiating a NNN lease.
