Cape Shore Property Management: Advice and Assistance for Landlords

Cape Shore Property Management has been in business in Cape Coral, Florida since 1989. People often contact us when they buy a house that they want to rent out to tenants, or when they are considering investing in property that they will rent out now and then use as a retirement home later down the road. One thing we always try to impress upon these landlords is that investing in property is like owning a business. A lot of landlords and property managers make mistakes because they don’t treat that investment property like a business.

If you have never owned an investment property before and you’ve never taken on the duties of a landlord, it’s easy to make mistakes. There is a lot involved in managing a property and taking care of the home as well as the tenants.

Here are some examples of the types of questions we get:

  • How do I know what to charge for rent?
  • How do I select and screen a tenant?
  • What do I do with the security deposit?
  • Who is responsible for maintaining the pool and the yard?
  • What do I do about maintenance?

We want to help answer your questions and provide valuable information to new landlords, so at Cape Shore Property Management we have put together some informative videos and blogs that we hope will be helpful. There’s a lot of information that we want to share with you, so take your time and work through them. If you need immediate answers or you have a specific problem that we can help you with, please feel free to contact us at Cape Shore Property Management and we’ll do whatever we can to assist you.
