Podcast by BiggerPockets

A property manager can alleviate the burden of screening tenants, collecting rents, and maintaining your property. But if you’re not careful, exorbitant fees and unexpected charges can quickly eat away at your cash flow. Today, you’re going to learn how to navigate this relationship and ensure that you’re getting these services at fair value!

In this Rookie Reply, Mindy Jensen from the BiggerPockets Money podcast and Tiamo Wright, Director of Product and Marketplaces at BiggerPockets, are joining us to help field your recent questions. First, we discuss medium-term rentals and how they differ from both long-term and short-term rentals, as well as whether you should invest in real estate while you’re in debt. We also get into real estate development and some of the different ways to fund larger projects. Looking to buy your first short-term rental property but don’t know where to start? Our experts will point you in the right direction!
