Don’t Let Your West Lake Hills Rental Property Become ‘That House’ in the Neighborhood

West Lake Hills Rental Property Yard That Has Clearly Been NeglectedMost of us have had troubles with “that house” in the neighborhood where all sorts of mess and worries seem to originate from. It’s either an out of control yard, noisy animals, or loud gatherings. A rental property with wild residents is usually a target and the object of frustration and resentment for the whole neighborhood.

But what if the worst house in the neighborhood is a rental home? Then suddenly it’s not just a simple nuisance. A poorly managed rental home is not only the source of problems for everybody but also places your investment and its future value at risk. Letting your West Lake Hills tenants abandon the yard or trash the outside of the house with all kinds of stuff quickly makes the house an eyesore. Things would escalate even more since outside messes are very attractive to disease-carrying insects. They come into the home, breed and bring with them rodents and other pests.

Homes with incessantly barking dogs or too many animals running free also presents a danger to neighbors and property owners alike. The nonstop barking may violate local noise ordinances and that could lead to you and your resident having to go through litigation. Residents who have too many animals, neglect to keep their animals secured, or don’t clean up after them can create serious health hazards as well as risk injury through bites and scratches. If your resident’s pet bites or scratches a neighbor, both you and your tenant can find yourself facing some serious consequences.

Rental homes with loud parties that happen almost every night or that have too many guests would be a nightmare for others too. A constant stream of criticisms about after-hours noise, blaring music, or cars crowding the street can urge local authorities to take action if you don’t put a stop to it yourself. Furthermore, homes that are very messy or have fallen victim to a hoarding situation will have a severe negative impact on your rental property as well as the property values of the surrounding homeowners.

The bottom line is, the proven way to make sure your rental property is not becoming “that house” is to hire a professional property management company.
