It is a common misconception that when you buy an investment property, the same agency who sold you the house needs to manage the rental property for you.
Real estate agencies which offer both sales and property management services can make it seem easier or otherwise beneficial to use their services to manage the investment property for you once it has been sold. In reality, there is negligible benefit in this approach.
A fundamental aspect of owning an investment property is knowing when and how to appropriately increase the rent. There are many things to consider before deciding to raise the rent, including understanding your legal obligations and how to minimise the likelihood of losing the current tenant.
