Let’s be real. Some people are about as easy to deal with as a two year old in a tantrum phase. No matter how hard you try, there is no reasoning with them! As a Dallas property management company, we are well aware of the hardship this places on property owners who are dealing with difficult tenants. But are the tenants the only ones being unreasonable?
According to the Texas Real Estate Commission, when your home is placed as a rental unit, it becomes a business investment. Oftentimes this is a hard pill to swallow for homeowners, who have lived in their home for a long period of time, as they have an emotional connection to the home, and business and emotions are difficult to separate. When you bring a tenant into the home who may not care for it as lovingly as yourself it can result in feelings of resentment, and anger and impact what is supposed to be a business deal.
Remember the line from the movie, The Godfather, “It’s not personal, It’s strictly business.” You must be able to detach your emotional ties to the property and run it as a business to prevent yourself from being the two-year-old-tantrum-thrower every time something goes wrong at the property. As a leader in the Dallas property management industry, we can help you in this process and serve as an emotional free contact for both parties. Having us on your side ensures that neither the tenant or yourself is a terrible two year old or a terrible tenant.
