Recently I was told due to the flat rental market, it was very difficulty to find a tenant. I have monitored the same area for the last two months. Found some property managers (PM) might not do their best to locate the tenant for the owner. I found one owner might be fed up by the PM. She started to self manage her property by looking for the tenant. After she reduced her rental for 15%, she eventually found one after 6 wks hunting. My question is how do you know your PM has done the best on your behalf. Based conversation from the phone or email, you may only know what they will tell you but not what they have done and how they have done.
