Landlord and Investor Education: Austin Landmark’s Property Management Blog

One of the ways that we share our experience is through our property management blog. We provide you with videos and articles that answer questions, share tips and advice, and help you judge the current state of the real estate market in Texas.

We provide this property management blog to help you navigate the challenges of owning a rental property. Whether you have one single home that you’re trying to manage on your own or you have an entire portfolio of investment homes that are professionally managed, you will receive useful information from our blogs.

You probably have a ton of reading material that you keep meaning to get to. You’re busy. You’re probably a little stressed. That’s why we keep our property management blogs brief. We won’t waste your time. Everything we talk about is relevant, and if you don’t have time to read what we’ve written, turn on the video, and listen to us while you’re catching up on paperwork.
We make it easy.

Answering Your Property Management Questions

You’ll find a lot of information on our property management blogs and in our videos. Maybe you’ve been wondering about something for a while. You’ll be relieved to find that it’s a common question among property owners.

If you have other questions that haven’t been covered in our property management blogs, be sure to let us know what’s on your mind. We create these blogs and videos with you in mind – we want to answer your questions and provide help where you need it. So, if you’re not sure about something and you don’t see it covered – reach out. We love hearing feedback and we love coming up with new ways to talk about our work as property managers.

From the Austin Landmark property management blog, you can expect information, education, and a little inspiration. We’re here to walk through the business of managing rental real estate with you. We’re here to help you through every part of the process – from managing taxes to budgeting for maintenance to turning over units.

We have been through it all. Our years of experience means we’ve made a few mistakes. You can benefit from those mistakes, and avoid making them yourself. You can also learn how to be a smarter investor, a better landlord, and a knowledgeable property owner.

Whether you’re a new investor, an accidental landlord, or an experienced member of the rental real estate community, we welcome you to our property management blog, and look forward to sharing ideas.

I have been renting since last may. I have nothing to complain about. I had one issue a couple of months ago. Was taken care of quickly. I just really hope my rent doesn't go up at the end of my lease.

I Have enjoyed renting through Austin landmark properties, The place I rented is in need of kitchen upgrades and a bathroom remodel , which i was aware of when i rented, so not a problem, however I was disappointed when they rasied my rent after the first year, because i thought it was already a bit high. I do not intend to renew my lease, so lets see how they treat me when i move out, thats the true sign of a good landlord.. i will update when the time comes. all in all, Marc is great , a very responsive and friendly guy. As of today, i have no problems giving them a recommendation for future renters.

Austin landmark property was able to adjust during the beginning of covid to help get me into a rental house. Not only has the rent been affordable, but they made great accommodations to please my needs. Anytime there’s an issue where something needs to be replaced or repaired, they make sure to do it in a Timely manner. I would recommend them to anyone!
