What is rental management?
Today, many owners of second homes or flats want to manage their properties themselves. However, this requires a lot of time and a low return. There are two ways of organizing the management of your property: either do it all yourself or delegate it to a rental management agency. There are companies that will take care of everything for you, so you don’t have to show the next tenant your property yourself! Also, once you’ve given the keys to the property to professional rental managers, all you have to do is collect your rent.
