Richmond property management companies deal with different scenarios regarding property owners through various phases of their lives. Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, people married their high schools sweethearts, had 3 kids and lived happily ever after in their bungalow with the white picket fence for the next 50 years. Sometimes this still happens today, but couples deciding to permanently separate is fairly common these days. You’ve put your heart and soul into your gorgeous Richmond rental house or furnished rental apartment and then one day out of the blue your spouse drops the bombshell on you, “this isn’t working anymore.”
Your life is literally turned upside down, you are confused, numb and the last thing you need is another distraction regarding what to do with your home? Do you sell your 5 bedroom rancher or make it a Richmond house for rent? When you are separated you are usually working out options so selling your home may be too final to consider just yet. A long term tenant may not be ideal either because this may limit your ability to sell the home should the separation turn into a divorce. A good, experienced Richmond property manager when consulted might advise a short term tenant is the best option.
A 6 month term may be ideal for your Steveston rental house as it would it would allow you time to get your bearings, figure out if this separation is permanent or temporary and is manageable should renting turn to selling. Sometimes there are kids or pets to consider and various other factors but dealing with your Richmond rental apartment or townhouse for rent shouldn’t be standing in the way of finding mental peace during this tumultuous time in your life.
