A while back, Feedspot voted us #20 on a list of the top 80 Property Management Blogs. We were thrilled and flattered, but more so surprised and excited to see all of the resources out there for landlords and rental property investors.
We pride ourselves on our blog and do our best to provide the highest quality content and to educate anyone who wants to learn.
Although we hold our blog in high regards, we realize that there is a wealth of knowledge and many other outstanding resources for individuals like yourself.
So, we decided to use our expertise to make our own list of Property Management blogs that we think are the most helpful.
- Rental Housing Journal
Rental Housing Journal is a business journal for America’s rental housing industry. According to their website:
“We are here to help work for you to help solve the problems you face every day in the management of rental properties as it is about you and not about us.
