Actively Managing A Multifamily Investment is Exhausting
The biggest barrier for multifamily investors looking to go it alone is the intensity of managing their property. Competing with other landlords to get the best properties, finding tenants, negotiating their leases, and resolving any complaints are regular occurrences. As is scheduling property repairs and general maintenance.
Investors juggling other commitments such as a job or a family can easily be overwhelmed and get burnt out fast.
Sure, you could hire a property management team to take care of this but it’s going to harm your profitability and slow down the time to recoup your investment. Is it all really worth it?
