WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A TENANT AND A RESIDENT MANAGER?
A tenant does not want the property to be sold, does not like lock boxes or the house being listed in the MLS. Tenants tend to require appointments 1-2 days before a showing. They also sign a lease for a specific tenure which often deters a buyer who is anxious to move in quickly! In addition, the homeowner has NO guarantee that the house will remain in excellent condition at all times. In contrast, the RM realizes that his purpose is to enhance the home in order to sell it quicker, keeps the home in show-to-sell condition, offering access to the house seven days a week, even holidays; and can vacate the property with an eighteen days notice.
