Like, any at all? I've always preferred doing it myself but never stopped to ask...why? Why do I want to take on more work and clog up my calendar with even more reminders? Are there any upsides at all to doing it yourself, no matter how minor? The only things I can think of are: 1) Having to make a lot of calls if I want to switch agents. It's not a huge job but it might make me less likely to switch if I'm really busy, even if I'm stuck with a crap agent. I've been in this situation a lot, for example I'll be paying double on my mobile bill but I leave it running for years before researching my alternatives because I've just too much on my plate. 2) Then it might be more work to reconcile the numbers every few months, having to dig back into old rental statements to make sure they've paid and charged me the right amount. If I do it myself I'll never need to reconcile. 3) Some places need utility bills with your name and address on it so I wonder if that would be troublesome. 4) Rental income isn't as consistent and it's not perfectly segmented. I.e. You can't have a consistent flow of income coming into one account and another used for expenses. It might be easier to track and manage if you're doing it yourself. 5) Maybe some agents charge a fee for this? Anything else?
