Every Rental Property Manager's Complete Handbook
How would you like to own multiple rental properties, make money from them, and have lots of spare time in this typically high-maintenance business? You can! Although many property managers lose more money each year on maintenance or long vacancies than they make in profit, with the right management system and some business savvy, you can rent out a house or condominium and still have enough time to enjoy your growing profits—or purchase more properties!
Greg Perry shows you how! With more than 40 of his own properties, he has created a foolproof system for rental management that has turned his rental business into a virtual turnkey operation. And now, in this revised edition of his book, he shows you step by step how you can profit from and enjoy managing your rental properties.
Inside, you'll learn valuable money-saving tips, such as how to:
·Market your property to attract droves of prospective tenants
·Keep good tenants happy and get rid of bad tenants
·Save a fortune on renovations, advertising, and other expenses
·Buy new properties and turn them into the most attractive houses on the block
·Use the Internet to market your rentals
·Choose the right insurance and prepare your taxes
·Plus much, much more!
Also included are up-to-date samples of leases, rental applications, eviction notices, and other important documents you can copy and customize.

A Beginners Guide to Rental Management

This book is good for those who have very limited experience in managing rental properties. It's main focus seemed to be on managing time and for those of you who don't know the secret I will let you in on it. Excellent Tenants = Minimal Time. It's finding and keeping the excellent tenants that require some time. This book goes into detail about how to do just that. If you are a struggling landlord or a complete newbie than this book is for you.
However, if you have some experience in this area, or are an effective manager outside of rental properties you will probably be an effective rental manager. Other things to consider is that Mr. Perry seems to specialize in very low cost rentals so much of his ideas are drawn towards those crowds. For Example
Getting Tenants the book says advertising the local newspaper is the best, it does work but for higher cost rentals I average about 70% of new tenants from the internet.

Not the best, but not the worst either
By Real Estate Investor

This is not the best book on land lording, and not even the second best, but none the less this is a book worth reading. However, if you are a serious landlord and are only going to read one book, this is not the one to read. The #1 book to read is "Landlording" by Leigh Robinson, which I rated as 5 stars. "The Landlording Kit" by Jeffrey Taylor is rated 4 stars by me. And Greg Perry's book and Richard Jorgensen's book "The New No-Nonsense Landlord" is 3 stars. The Milan book is a solid one star.I still recommend that you read this book, just not ONLY this book. The author claims that he "owns and manages or co-manages nearly 50 rental properties." That's a pretty vague statement. He could own and manage 1 property and co-manage 45 properties and that would be "nearly 50 rental properties." One of his early points is that your name and phone number should not be advertised in the rental ad. He says that you should establish an open house Friday afternoon and Saturday... read more
Solid advice for the small-time landlord
By A Customer
- July 14, 1999
This book provides practical advice that makes sense for those of us who are not (yet) "big hitter" real estate investors. Its strengths include the many tips that will set your business apart from the competition and make your good tenants never want to leave. In particular, I appreciated Mr. Perry's human and reasonable approach to investing, a refreshing point of view in the sea of get-rich-quick real estate strategies. I thought the book had few shortcomings, but it seemed a little light in certain areas, such as basic formulas to analyse investment properties. I was suprised by this given the book's title and his emphasis on paying as little as possible for properties and only buying properties that provide positive cash flow before adding in tax benefits (this can be difficult if not impossible in certain parts of the country). Overall, the book is very good and I would recommend it without reservation to others that are considering becoming a small-time... read more
