I once heard a successful real estate investor say, "The bigger the deal, the easier it is." It wasn't until I had begun to acquire a large portfolio of single-family homes this fully resonated with me.
"To be, or not to be, that is the question." Who would have thought Shakespeare was talking about property management when he wrote those famous words. The answer to that question is nobody. But, just as Prince Hamlet was bemoaning the pains and unfairness of life, every active real estate investor struggles with whether to deal with the pains of self-management, or to consider the professional alternative. Then, once you've decided, how do you find the right one?
