Start A Property Management Business

Property management companies maintain a residence's status quo by representing the property owners. The property management company markets the property and collects rent on behalf of the owners.

With the demand for housing increasing annually, the property management business is lucrative. Property managers earn commissions and have an opportunity to maximize profits by working for as many clients as they can handle.

Here are some real life success stories of starting a property management business:
