There are so many very experienced and hands on investors on this forum. Many of us appear to want to control the ship and use a pm as someone to action series of tasks on our behalf opposed to having a set and forget mentality. From personal experience both talking to other investors and property managers, I have seen and heard of many cases of investors both proving their property managers right and wrong about how much their property should be rented out for. I would love to hear about peoples' wins and loses in this area and what the take away was from how you could have validated the higher rent better before the loss( being vacant too long) happened or how you knew their was money on the table your property manager didn't know.
