So You Want to Be a Landlord?

Of course you do! Anyone with a thriving rental property can tell you that being a landlord can be a really rewarding experience. Not only does it generate a steady stream of passive income, but you get to directly invest in a neighborhood you love. Best of all, the rental market in Los Angeles has been increasing for years with no signs of letting up. That said, being a landlord does come with it’s own set of responsibilities. Properly vetting tenants takes specialized experience, dealing with maintenance and repairs can be stressful to navigate, and keeping up with rent collection is a hassle most property owners would rather do without.

That’s where we come in.
