Nobody likes to be connected with that person in the neighborhood with a reputation of being “that house”. The one with that title, everybody seems to have a problem with, where most complaints stem from because of all the chaos and distress that they make. Those troubles could range from a yard that is not appropriately maintained, pets running loosely or parties that are too rowdy. A rental property with wild residents easily becomes the object of frustration and resentment for everybody.
It’s an entirely different story once the house with the worst reputation is a rental home as it can become more than just a nuisance. A poorly managed rental home creates friction for their neighbors and also places your investment and its future value at risk. Letting your Los Lunas tenants fail to look after the yard or trash the exterior of the home with different household items creates instant ugliness. Your house will be an eyesore. Also, when the outside is in disarray, it attracts disease-carrying pests that reproduce. These, in turn, may attract rodents and other insects.
Homes with incessantly barking dogs or too many animals running free also brings danger to neighbors and property owners alike. Persistent barking may violate local noise ordinances and end up in legal action against you and your resident. Residents who own too many pets, neglect to have their animals bound, or don’t pick up after them can generate serious health hazards, as well as risk injury through bites and scratches. If your resident’s pet attacks a neighbor, both you and your tenant can find yourself looking at some serious consequences.
Rental homes with many loud parties or those who have guests all the time cause problems for everyone, too. Endless complaints about noise at unruly hours, loud music or cars that are crowding the street can force the local authorities to file a legal suit against you if you do not do anything to stop it yourself. Furthermore, homes that are very messy or have fallen victim to a hoarding situation will have a severe negative impact on your rental property as well as the property values of the surrounding homeowners.
