4. Rent Collection
Timely and predictable rental income is the backbone of any successful rental property. Unfortunately, rent collection is not always easy–especially if you rent to difficult tenants.
Late or missed payments may mean you may not be able to maximize your rental income.
Nelson has developed proven methods to ensure our clients get paid on time, every time.
It all starts with ensuring we only rent to the right caliber of tenants. Specifically, we make sure to rent to tenants that have a good employment history and earn sufficient income.
Another strategy is providing tenants with multiple payment options, to make paying rent simple and convenient for each tenant.
