If you've owned income property for any length of time, you know that owning a rental can be financially rewarding.  At the same time, you've also likely discovered that property management requires a large commitment of time and effort.  However, for most busy people, the do-it-yourself approach just isn't practical.  The decision to hire a professional property manager is a simple cost/benefit equation.  Not only are we experts at handling properties and tenants, we generally take only a small percentage of the monthly rent in exchange for our services.  When you consider what you get in return - a hassle-free, essentially passive income stream - the decision to hire Professional Property Services, Ltd. to manage your property is a no-brainer for the majority of rental property owners.
