Whether you are a seasoned investor or a newcomer to this type of management, you can be sure that managing a rental property online can be a challenge.

This type of remote property has become very popular over the last few years. Investors have started to invest in remote rental properties in secondary or smaller markets because the population in which such infrastructure is located has a more affordable price as well as a lower standard of living.

A trusted local representative

Firstly, it is important to have the right system and tools in place so that the remote management of the rental property of interest to the client can deliver the same or better returns as if the property were nearby.

For this system to work, the main step is to have a local representative who can be trusted to delegate certain functions. It should also be borne in mind that anything that can be systematised is key, as well as making use of online services (rent collection, maintenance requests, etc.).

A good remote rental plan

Secondly, it is also worth noting that owning remote rental properties requires time to travel and some time to manage. It is true that for an investor with the basic tools and a good remote rental plan the advantages outweigh the disadvantages, but it is always important to visualise yourself and think about whether this investment model is made for the lifestyle you lead and expect.

Therefore, apart from having a local representative, it is also important to have other people with different roles: an investor-friendly real estate agent, property manager, contractors (for electrical maintenance, ventilation, etc.).

A convenient online payment system

However, one of the most important points to consider, apart from having a team of people who can carry out all these functions that you as an investor will coordinate remotely, another important step will be to make the payments online and have a control of all of this so that you do not receive any surprises.

Security is essential

Finally, it is recommended to make a security plan and rules. One of the main advantages of having properties remotely is that you can delegate many functions if you have people and a team you can trust, but it is also true that it can be a big disadvantage, because if a problem arises you cannot solve it immediately and in person.
