Managing a Rental Property Out of State

While purchasing rental property out-of-state offers limitless investment opportunities, it also presents some logistical challenges that may be hard to overcome. Even the most organized investors cannot be in two places at one time if they live outside of Michigan. Thus, several problems can arise when an investor is unable to manage a property or engage with tenants.

Detroit metro property management companies such as JMZ can help out-of-state investors that own properties in the Detroit Metro area. By providing valuable services such as tenant screening, property maintenance & inspections, rent collection, financial report, property managers can help investors and landlords leverage oversight of their rentals properties. 

Below we explore some ways that JMZ can help you manage your Detroit metro rental property out of state. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact our Novi, Michigan office.

Accurate Rental Analysis

When was the last time you've conducted a complete Rental Market Analysis (RMA)? Analysis can help you assess the rental potential of a given area or a specified property. JMZ can utilize our current local data and inside information to perform an accurate rental analysis. We can assess area such as:

  • Rental market forecasts in the area
  • Comparable properties within a given radius of your home or apartment
  • Suggested rental price per square foot of living space
  • Adjust the rental price for amenities
  • Property assessment to determine any necessary repairs or upgrades

An analysis will give you a good indication of how much you should charge for rent.
