The Homeowners’s State of Being Before Engaging Cotton Property Management After Engaging Cotton Property Management
With regards to their home: Experiences costly vacancy loss, they own a liability, may have a tenant/landlord relationship gone awry, and may be housing a tenant who stopped paying the rent. They own an income producing property with a satisfied resident who feels the product and service they are receiving is well worth the cost they pay each month to rent the home.
