In a recent survey of landlords by Porch, a home improvement services company, just over 88% of landlords said they had experienced some stress in renting out their properties.
Nearly 49% of landlords surveyed had been asked to break a lease early, just under 45% have had to evict a tenant, and about 40% have had a tenant who suddenly stopped paying their rent.
While 80% said the revenue was worth the stress, there is a way to reduce that stress—hire a professional.
