Proper Financial Control for a Kansas City HOA | KC Property Management Advice

Tom Sedlack - Thursday, November 16, 2017


The title of this blog – Proper Financial Control for a Kansas City HOA – sounds like a mouthful, but it means is your HOA agent properly managing the funds in your HOA accounts? Typically, HOAs will have two accounts; an operating and reserve account. You need to have faith that your management company is following proper accounting security procedures, cash handling procedures, and preventing fraud. It’s not surprising that every so often, you hear about a property manager running off with hundreds of thousands of dollars out of an HOA’s reserve account. It’s a sad story when you hear it, but it can be controlled with a company that uses proper trust accounting controls and follow through.  Read More

How to Look for a Property Manager in Kansas City : KC Property Management Advice

Tom Sedlack - Tuesday, November 07, 2017


Picking a property management company in KC is probably one of the biggest decisions you can make. It’s even more important than picking tenants. There’s a lot of trust in handing your property off to a management company. This is a multi-hundred thousand dollar asset, and you’re handing over more than the keys. You’re also handing over your bank account information for rent collections and distributions, and you’re handing off personal information like your social security number and information on your W-9. You have to be careful and hire a property manager who is honest and embraces integrity. You’re also looking for great service.  Read More

What is a Lifetime Tenant Guarantee? Kansas City Property Management Education

Tom Sedlack - Monday, June 19, 2017


For many of our Kansas City property owners, tenancy and the quality of tenants is a concern and something a landlord needs to consider.

Tom Sedlack - Thursday, February 23, 2017


HOA maintenance is something that most HOA managers only think about when there’s an issue.

The Move In and Move Out Process | Kansas City (KC) Landlord Advice

Tom Sedlack - Thursday, February 02, 2017


Single family homes are probably some of the most difficult properties to manage. With multi-family properties, you have the same paint colors and flooring and appliances, and they are all co-located with an on-site maintenance person and a leasing agent. The management is simplified, as well as the ability to organize maintenance. With single family homes, not so much. There are different paints and carpets and they are all scattered throughout the metro area. You need to put a lot of trust into your individual tenants. So, it’s important to ensure you have a lot of documentation which goes beyond the lease and addenda. The move-in and move-out documentation is especially critical.   Read More

How to Evict a Tenant in Kansas City KC-K/KC-MO | Property Management Education

Tom Sedlack - Wednesday, January 25, 2017


In Kansas City (KC), you need to be aware of which state you’re in when evicting a tenant, because the laws are different in each state. In general, the process is similar. The first thing you must remember when you’re considering an eviction is that bad tenancy, whether in the form of late payments or no payments or something else is not like fine wine. It doesn’t get better with age, so rip the band-aid off and find yourself a new tenant who is better. You can do a better job of screening and ensuring you have responsible people moving into your home. Trying to limp along with a bad tenant is never a good idea and will probably cause more damage to property and cash flow than simply moving forward briskly.   Read More

How to Set Fair Market Rent in Kansas City | Professional Property Management Education

Tom Sedlack - Friday, November 04, 2016

Setting rent is sometimes an art and sometimes a science. Usually, it’s a mix of both, and there are a lot of metrics that are involved. It’s important to be sensitive to the marketplace and the factors that tenants are looking for. The bottom line, and the thing that makes home investors successful, is to buy and rent homes as investment properties that you would live in yourself. These are the homes that have the layout, the amenities, and the school districts that appeal to good tenants. Like you, tenants are looking for specific numbers of bedrooms, bathrooms, a garage, a yard with a fence, and all those things that are important when you’re buying a home.  Read More
