Turn a "Sinking Ship" Investment Around with Property Management

Pamela McNab-Syvertson - Thursday, July 4, 2019

Every type of investment has an element of risk, but property management may be higher on the list than others: not only do you have to rely on tenants to pay on time, but if the investment sours, you’re saddled with trying to sell an additional property while continuing to pay taxes.

Congratulations! You’ve purchased a new investment property in Orlando, and you're on your way to the peaceful and profitable life of a landlord.
