Hot Air Balloon or Property Management?

The Hot Air Balloon and Chicago Property Management

What does a hot air balloon have to do with Real Property Management Chicago Edge? It’s simple: we both have the same three elements- the envelope, the burner, and the pilot.

The Property Owner and The Envelope

The envelope of a hot air balloon is the actual fabric that holds the hot air. Without the balloon envelope, you can’t gather the hot air to achieve lift off.

In the world of Chicago property management, the envelope is the property owner. It’s the property owner wanting to rent out his or her home but not wanting the hassle of being a landlord that creates the place for property managers in Chicago.  Careful rental property investing makes that strong envelope needed for a great flight.

 The Tenant and The Burner

The hot air balloon would not function without the burner working to create and propel hot air into the envelope. Without the burner, you simply have a flat balloon that won’t fly.

The tenant is like the burner. Not that they are full of hot air, but they fill the envelope–the property owner’s home. Quality and qualified tenants are what keeps the property investment business going. Without the right tenants, you are stuck with many days of vacancy, stress, and a business plan that just can’t get off the ground.

The Basket, Pilot, and Property Manager

The basket of the hot air balloon is where the pilot and any passengers stand. The pilot steers the balloon by firing the burner at regular intervals to ensure stability.

At Real Property Management Chicago Edge, our property managers are like the pilot. We keep the property owner’s business on the rise by finding, screening, and placing tenants that will continue to fill the home. Property inspections and regularly checking in with the tenant keep that relationship ongoing and smooth. When it comes time for a tenant to move to a new home, we help the property owner find a new tenant without a long vacancy time.

Real Property Management Chicago Edge Will Be Your Pilot

If you are tired of trying to get your balloon (investment property) off the ground, or are struggling to get the burner (tenants) working properly, it may be time for you to find a pilot (property manager). Real Property Management Chicago Edge has nearly 30 years of experience helping property owners manage their rental properties. Find out how we can help your business get off the ground and stay there!
