Real Estate Management

Thanks to low prices of dwellings, many homeowners are choosing to rent your property rather than to sell, this change in strategy may cause effects on the management of the properties. He could now face new questions. There are laws that regulate rental properties? Who is responsible for repairs? How is it done to find responsible tenants? These are all good questions that can be answered by administrators of quality properties. Here are some things that you should consider when you think about hiring a real estate management company. The questions should be to clarify any confusion that may have about the process in the management of real estate.

How are they going to commercialize your investment to achieve the best rental income and select qualified tenants? Are laws between landlords and tenants updated? Procedures exist for the collection and disbursement of the money owed? Benefits: consider the benefits to determine whether recruitment suggested by those responsible for the management of real estate is the right choice for you in your situation. Who work in real estate management and companies that are reputable offer homeowners peace of mind at the time that protect your investment. These managers serve as intermediaries to resolve any problem between the owner and the lessee before becoming a big headache. Undertakings entrusted with the management of real estate can provide useful resources for the maintenance of the House and thus ensure a professional job in the necessary repairs. Cost: review your finances to see if the cost of hiring a company for real estate management fits your budget. Most management companies charge between 8-10% of the monthly rent to cover their services according to their degree of participation in the property.

The commercialization of the rent, newspaper ads, Internet, signages, tend to be covered in this post. The agency responsible for the management of real estate will discuss all repairs that need to be made to House and determines if the owner or tenant is responsible for the costs. While these are just the basics to examine a manager of real estate management, this information is vital for understanding the process.

Real Estate Bubble Burst

That day the real estate sector as a whole had a drop of which happen once every years, of which tend to announce the beginning of a great movement. It was not a simple correction. Nor do I believe that the trigger was the initial fall of Astroc as he has been said in many places. Astroc is a company that does not follow any analyst, who does not have a clear and understandable, not distributed dividends and activity which was considered very overrated (to 75 euros had a PER2006 of nearly 100 times) by the vast majority of stock investors. Therefore, if the majority of investors could expect that sometime Astroc disrupted a strong correction not it seems logical to think that this correction has caught them by surprise and they have reacted with panic selling shares of other companies that have a clear activity, share dividends and were not so absurdly overvalued as Astroc. I think the real trigger for the correction was the 100 questions TVE program to Rajoy, which said very clearly on several occasions that I was going to liberalize the soil when it came to the Government.

Because, for me, the real estate bubble did not begin at the end of the 1990s, but the day that someone invented a major scam of mankind; the urban recalificaciones. It is not recalificaciones system promotes corruption, it is that it is expressly intended to enrich himself through corruption. The market of the soil in Spain (and in the majority of countries) does not respond to the laws of supply and demand (as the markets of apples, t-shirts, cars, computers, shoes, etc.) but the level of corruption and totally arbitrary decisions of a small group of people who decide where you can build and where not. Currently the price of land in Spain has a very high price, but the soil is not a scarce commodity.
