GeekEstate | Electronic Signatures and Authorizations in the Rental Industry

While the concept of electronic signatures and authorizations was around well before the COVID-19 pandemic, the last couple of years has certainly shined a new light on these kinds of digital transactions. Data shows that tenants with online rent payment options have remained more likely to pay rent on time and in full throughout the social distancing and stay-at-home orders of the pandemic, and the rental industry as a whole has adopted many other virtual practices to keep things running smoothly despite unprecedented challenges.

One of these practices has been utilizing electronic signatures (eSignatures) as an easy, secure and timely way to have lease agreements and other important documents signed by both parties. Pandemic or not, landlords can use eSignatures to seamlessly move tenants through the application, lease signing and move-in processes. READ MORE…

BiggerPockets | Property Management: When is it Time to Outsource?

If you’re anything like me, you began your real estate investment journey by handling every task yourself. Blame it on my entrepreneurial spirit or simply my lack of experience. I was trying to find a rental property; handle all of the maintenance, repairs and renovations; stay on top of my accounting and tax paperwork, and find qualified tenants all without any outside help. Hiring outside help was another cost to add to the list, and I was hoping that the less money I spent upfront, the better chance I had for higher profits in the long run. READ MORE…

Entrepreneur | 3 Pieces of Business Advice for My Younger Self

With the right mindset, there are many different paths to success.

While this may come as a surprise to some, you don’t need to take a traditional path to have a successful career or even start your own business. Personally, I never worked my way up the corporate ladder or earned an MBA to become a CEO — in fact, I didn’t go to college. I learned on the job, teaching myself computer programming in my free time. What started as purely a hobby to save myself time as I began investing in real estate turned into my own property-management software company. I’m proud to say that we now help tens of thousands of landlords do their jobs better. READ MORE…

You have a right to peace and quiet, as do your neighbors.

One of your tenant rights is the implied warranty of quiet enjoyment, which gives you the right to enjoy your rental property undisturbed and without interference. In apartment complexes or densely populated neighborhoods, your landlord may have established quiet hours written into your lease to ensure that everyone has the right to quiet enjoyment. READ MORE… | Careers in Real Estate are Hot, But Success Isn’t Guaranteed

The real estate market has taken a somewhat unexpected center stage position during the ongoing battle with the COVID-19 pandemic. While the onset of the pandemic brought the world as we know it—real estate included—to a screeching halt, since then we’ve seen home sales and home prices skyrocket. There are several reasons for this. One key driver is that many home buyers are seeking to relocate either due to a lifestyle change, work-from-home opportunities, or other shifts brought on by the pandemic. Another offshoot of this trend is that there has been an influx of people getting their real estate licenses as a result of our new normal.

Learn how new agents can find ways to stand out and be creative in a market that’s becoming increasingly lucrative, yet increasingly competitive. READ MORE… | What are the Different Types of Rental Leases – and Which Is Best for Me?

Signing a rental lease is a big deal, and it is important that you fully understand the rules and conditions outlined in your lease agreement before entering into a legally binding agreement. One of the most crucial factors your rental lease will outline is the length of the lease agreement. Different types of leases have lengths that range from 30 days to multiple years. The length of the lease term is typically determined by your landlord or property manager, but you do have the right to negotiate on the length of the lease term if your landlord is willing to do so.
