Owning Rental Property Out of State: An Owners’ Story

Owning rental property out of state can be a major headache, especially if you are a DIY (do-it-yourself) landlord.


What do you do when you live in one state and have one or multiple properties in other areas? What if you job causes you to relocate multiple times? Here’s how one property owner, Mike P now has peace of mind living a thousand miles away from his rental property

Mike’s first rental home was due to a company relocation taking him from Portland, Oregon to So California.  Initially, Mike decided to self-manage his rental property remotely, relying on family and friends to handle any issues that came up.

After a few years of the hassles of trying to successfully manage his rental, Mike decided to use a property management company in Portland, Oregon to handle what had been his primary residence.


While living in his home in California, hire Real Property Management Solutions located in downtown Portland, to handle his property in Happy Valley, a suburb of Portland. Real Property Management franchise owner Dan Hayes and his team took very good care of Mike and his rental home. What impresses Mike the most is their proactive communication, responsiveness to his calls, and his ability to focus on his job and life in California while Real Property Management Solutions handle the job of maximizing Mike’s revenue while minimizing the hassles!


In addition, the Real Property Management team suggested improvements on his property to garner a higher rent, such as painting and new flooring.  It was so easy for Mike who demonstrated his satisfaction by telling the RPM Solutions team Mike “you guys have made this SO EASY for me….you rock!!”


The Real Property Management offices in Portland, Oregon and Southern California, both give Mike the confidence and trust to have peace of mind while living several states away.

With over 260 locations nationwide, Real Property Management knows how difficult it can be to own rental property while out of state. We are here to take away the headaches of repairs, showings, rent collection, credit and background checks, and even evictions.
