The Surprising Truth Of Being A Landlord In Phoenix

December 4, 2019

Do you own a rental property in Phoenix? Make sure you know the surprising truth of being a landlord in Phoenix because it’s not always what you think it’s going to be…

truth about being a landlord

Owning a rental property seems like a great idea. You buy it cheap, you find a tenant, and then you profit from the rental income while you manage the property… how hard could it be?

Problem is, it’s often much harder than people realize and you may find (as many landlords do) the surprising truth of being a landlord in Phoenix: You give up your personal life – no more private time, no more vacations, no more weekend getaways… all because you’re so busy as a landlord.

There’s the work required

Owning a rental will keep you busy. There’s the work required to find the property, then to fix it up, then to find a tenant, then to answer the phone from them every time they call. Even if they call late at night because the toilet is overflowing, you have to take their call and deal with it. That means: no more vacations, either, because what will happen if the toilet overflows while you’re in a different country?

There’s the time

Some landlords try to own a rental property while they have another job but many discover that it’s just as time-consuming… it’s like having a second full-time job! Between chasing down your tenants to fixing things around the house, it’s one thing after another and you may simply not have time to work at your other job… and that’s with ONE rental property. Landlords who own two or more are even busier.

There’s the cost

Rental properties aren’t cheap. Sure you get some rental income from the tenant but you also have to take care of the property, fix it up, make upgrades, and repair it if the tenants trash it when they leave. In other words, the costs add up and the financial rewards of owning a rental property may not be there for you.

There’s the stress

When you add up all of those things so far, it equals STRESS! You’ve got so much to juggle with the rental property, and you worry about it constantly, and perhaps you even fear opening the mail because you may find bad news in the next envelope. That’s no way to live.
