Should You Manage Your Own Rental Home

Collier Swecker video blogs about why most people need to hire a professional manager to handle their rental property. Many home sellers who have failed to procure a buyer for their home, have made the decision to lease their home and they attempt to save money by taking on the responsibility to collect rents, manage repairs, and everything else that goes along with owning & managing rental property. I have seen so many homeowners that take the self managed route, regret the decision because they end up spending countless hours chasing unpaid rent,  making repairs, and spending tons of money and time trying to please the tenants. A professional manager is worth every dime that you spend on them and they will allow you peace of mind in knowing that you don’t have to answer that midnight call because the toilet won’t stop running.  If you have any comments or questions contact me at or visit my website at
