Like the title seems to suggest, this kind of advice on property management will sound crazy and result in amazement from the general audience whenever it is given to anyone for the first time. Once one gets to conceptualize the reasoning behind this idea, then they will get to start appreciating and quite well adopting this crazy idea for the management of their property.
As a general rule here, we give the advice not to ever inspect your property and advisably leave states apart from the investment property you have. Look at the crazy idea bringing a super advantage as it will no longer get you clipped to doing your investments in just one particular location or state for that matter but will open you doors for having investments in various parts of the world. The following discussions are some of the reasons detailing why you will need to have a professional real estate agent to manage and inspect your investment property getting you completely off the limelight of the investment management and such like property issues.
The fact that you had a building inspector do their job on the property before you settled for it is the first reason why you will realistically have no business inspecting the property. These professionals will do a far better job on the inspection of the property much more than you could ever do and as such trashing al your needs to do an inspection of the property. After one will have bought the property and it is now theirs to manage, the services of the property managers will be there to help them do a good management of these investment property and these too are technocrats who well know their jobs and will do them to the best possible standards far much better than what you could have managed on your own.
In a relationship of any kind and more so of a business nature, there should exist a feeling of mutual trust and confidence between the trustees and those whom the custodianship rests and in cases where this seems to be amiss then that is a good sign of trouble and dealing with the people of the wrong type. As beings of the emotional nature, we risk attaching ourselves emotionally to our property the moment we get inspecting it on our own and this attachment will be quite dangerous for the financial decisions we will be making concerning the property in question. As an investor you must as well be aware of the fact that your time is far more than doing a physical check on your property. The levelheaded and serious investor appreciates the fact that the money in all he is doing is in capital growth and will do all within means to achieve such other ends leaving the others to the relevant personnel.
