Overview of Phoenix
Rentals by owner are a subcategory of rental homes you can consider when searching for a new place to live in Phoenix. These properties come in many shapes and sizes, just like rentals that are owned and operated by property management companies. The difference between rentals by owner and other rentals is more apparent in terms of the potentially more relaxed and personably nature of the rental by owner tenant-landlord relationship.
Benefits of Rentals by Owner
Rentals by owner offer tenants a living situation that can be elicit better communication between the renter and landlord than occurs when you're just one of a large number of tenants on a company's list. Homeowners tend to have more personally invested in their property than a large company so they may be more concerned and conscientious about maintaining the property and keeping their tenants happy.
Homeowner landlords have more control over property changes and repairs than a corporate-run rental property. Property management companies tend to have standardized leases and rules. Rentals by owner, however, can offer renters more flexibility on things like painting and pets. Sometimes a close, neighborly relationship can develop between a homeowner and their tenant, particularly if the two both live on the premises, in a duplex for example. This can result in the renter and owner working together in certain ways, such as discussing the best method and timing for specific repairs.
Rentals by owner properties may also offer lower rents in order to attract prospective tenants and compete with modern apartment complexes with long lists of amenities.
